Bette Midler Celebrates HOCUS POCUS 2 Production Wrap

Tony, Emmy, and Grammy-winner Bette Midler took to Twitter to confirm that the highly-anticipated sequel to Hocus Pocus has wrapped filming.

Midler reunites with her co-stars Sarah Jessica Parker ("Sex and the City," "Divorce") and Kathy Najimy ("Sister Act," "Younger") as they return to their roles as Winifred, Sarah, and Mary, the delightfully wicked Sanderson sisters who bewitched audiences in the 1993 film "Hocus Pocus."

"THAT'S A WRAP," Midler tweeted in celebration of the end of filming. Hocus Pocus 2 is expected to debut on Disney+ this fall.

Doug Jones ("The Shape of Water," "What We Do in the Shadows") also returns as Billy Butcherson. Joining them are Whitney Peak ("Gossip Girl," "Molly's Game") as Becca, Lilia Buckingham ("Dirt," "Crown Lake") as Cassie, and Belissa Escobedo ("American Horror Stories," "The Baker and the Beauty") as Izzy, three young women in present-day Salem who incite the wrath of the three witches.

It's been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, and they are looking for revenge. Now it is up to three high-school students to figure out how to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before midnight on All Hallow's Eve.

Rounding out the cast are recent Emmy® winner Hannah Waddingham ("Ted Lasso," "Game of Thrones"), Tony Hale ("Veep," "Arrested Development"), Sam Richardson ("The Tomorrow War," "Good Boys"), Juju Brener ("Vanquish"), Froy Gutierrez ("Teen Wolf"), Taylor Paige Henderson and Nina Kitchen.
