Movie Review Hocus Pocus 2:

 

Every Halloween, 1990s kids made sure to not only watch Hocus Pocus with their friends but to get their kids into the lore as well. While I grew up spending two hours every Halloween watching Hocus Pocus, this year I was thrilled to see the Sanderson Sisters return in an all-new avatar in Hocus Pocus 2.

Hocus Pocus 2 Review

Honestly, I was a little skeptical about how they would handle the return of the three witches. What if my favorite childhood memory was doctored and it ruined everything? Well, I’m happy to report that Hocus Pocus 2 not only keeps that passion alive but also brings out a little excitement for a new generation jumping on the horror bandwagon.


Fans of the franchise will remember that in 1993, the Sanderson Sisters – which included the wise Winnie (Bette Midler), the naughty Sarah (Sarah Jessica Parker), and the naughty Mary (Kathy Najimy) – were left in Salem at sunrise, but they were not. Won’t go. The book says that the sisters may return. In Hocus Pocus 2, the sisters return from this same thread. In keeping with the original film’s formula, Hocus Pocus 2 begins with a flashback before the current events begin. In flashback, fans learn that the Sanderson brothers were expelled from Salem by a reverend and in the forest, they meet a witch from whom they get their power and a book with one eye. Increase with the help of magical books, they burn his house by promoting a lifetime


Quickly to 2022 and Salem makes sanders Sanderers. But not by disturbing children and children in the 1993 do not. Instead, they are celebrated, even recreated in Halloween contests. However, no one even dreamed that the sisters could return. The prohibition occurs when Becca (Whitney Peak) and her best friend Izzy (Belissa Escobedo) accidentally light a black candle, opening the door for their return.


Although at first the sisters decide to continue the tradition of using their magical powers to grow in life forever. However, the story takes the first time with Winnie realizing that the mayor has a terrible appearance and the Reverend suddenly all they want is revenge for everything that happened to them in the past. Things get worse when her daughter, Cassie (Lilia Buckingham), Becca’s second best friend, gets involved in the whole mess. In one hour, 43 minutes, the runners embark on a magical journey filled with many scenes from the 1993 movie and possibly even more Hocus Pocus movies in the future.


Disney has added everything in the right way. The film brings back the charm of the first film, reminding us that although this is a film for children and teenagers, adults can enjoy it very much. The return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson Sisters makes it very good but make sure not to overdo it. The actors were fun to watch as they were in 1993, but they didn’t let their magical aura overshadow the new generation following them.

Director Anne Fletcher, who has directed films such as The Proposal and Step Up in the past, successfully combines Kenny Ortega for the first time with her own vision in Hocus Pocus 2. With the help of the writer Jen D’Angelo, Hocus Pocus 2 not only provides a new story for young people, but also shines in the face of representation.

Unlike the first film – which is asked and answered all the questions at the same time as Hocus Pocus 2 – the series leaves you with details about the next generation seen in the film. Hocus Pocus 2 scratches the surface when it comes to the story of Becca, Izzy and Cassie, opening the way for some important questions. Personally, it felt like an unsatisfying experience. But to give Disney the benefit of the doubt that Hocus Pocus movies will happen in the future, let’s hope they come back for the third installment and give us a little more of that.
It is also heartbreaking that none of the original three children returned for this sequel. Although the new film is about the Sanderson sisters and their redemption, the absence of Omri Katz (who plays Max), Thora Birch (Dani Dennison) and Vinessa Shaw (Allison Watts) is noticeable.


Before I forget, the movie’s cinematography and music are first class. Two of the many scenes that lingered after the film ended were the Enchanted Forest scenes and Michael Jackson’s Thriller-style dance number in the streets.


All in all, Hocus Pocus 2 offers a bit more likability to the Sanderson Sisters. It shows witches in a more human light than before. Considering the advanced technology used in the sequel, looking back at the first one looks a bit theatrical but still fun. It’s going to be a Hocus Pocus Halloween marathon for me.
The Disney+ Original Movie, Hocus Pocus 2 will premiere on September 30, 2022, exclusively on Disney+.
