While many Hocus Pocus Fans are looking forward to the return of Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy as the Sanderson sisters, there is a whole year to await the expected arrival of Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney +, but that doesn’t mean there’s nothing to look forward to this year. This Halloween sees the launch of not one, but two different fashion ranges based on the Hocus Pocus movie: one from Disney and another collection from the Hot Topic label and both are amazing. First, take a look at the Hot Topic collection.
Disney introduced its line of Halloween stores last month, and along with designs based on Star Wars, The nightmare before christmas and Disney villains, there were some Hocus Pocus surprises including reversible long-sleeved adult tees, backpacks, jumpers, and even a pair of Sandersons-based crocs. Obviously, that is in addition to the usual stuffed toys, board game, trinkets, and masquerade costumes, all available for fans to grab ahead of Halloween.
In addition to this, we now have a recently announced collection from Hot Topic, which is somewhat more adult than the Disney range. There’s a collared dress with a magical symbol print, a very Sanderson tunic top, a Binx hoodie with cat ears, and an orange, purple, and yellow sweatshirt that almost cries out to double up as a candidate for Christmas Jumper Day. with its striking witchcraft design. artifacts. All items can be ordered on the Hop Topic website with prices starting at $ 29.90.
While these collections will be well received by fans, it is the arrival of Hocus Pocus 2 that’s really on their minds, and production is definitely moving forward, although original director Adam Shankman recently released a statement when he was forced to hand over directing duties for the sequel to Anne Fletcher, best known for her work on The proposal and 27 dresses – and re-assume the role of executive producer due to a scheduling conflict.
Shankman said: “As heartbroken as I am that I won’t be able to direct my friends Bette, Sarah Jessica and Kathy in what is sure to be a big event for Disney + due to scheduling conflicts, I couldn’t be more pleased to hand over the reins to Anne. , who has brought so much laughter and joy into people’s lives with her past work. I am still grateful and proud to help guide this ingenious project as an executive producer alongside producer Lynn Harris, whom I have loved and admired as a colleague and friend since she helped me get the choreography job Boogie nights. “
“Now more than ever, people need to laugh,” Fletcher said of the return of the Sanderson sisters. “We should laugh every day, and there is so much fun with these three amazing women playing delightful characters from such a beloved movie. I am so grateful to be able to play a role in the resurrection of these witches.” And going back to working with my friends at Disney makes it even more special. This is a movie for everyone from the fans who grew up with the first movie to the next generation of viewers, and I can’t wait to get started. “
Hocus Pocus 2 has no set release date, but is expected to arrive at Disney + in time for Halloween 2022. This news comes from ComicBook.com.
