Hocus Pocus 2 has wrapped filming and will premiere on Disney+ this Halloween, according to executive producer Adam Shankman.

The sequel to the hit 1993 film, which sees Max Dennison (Omri Katz) accidentally resurrect a coven of evil witches known as the Sanderson Sisters (played by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy), sees three young women accidentally free the witches once again, in modern-day Salem.
