Let’s “Confabulate” And Master New Words With Hocus Pocus 2
"Come little children, I’ll take thee away into a land of enchantment. Come little children. The time has come to play here in my garden of magic," as Sarah Sanderson would say. To all the witches around the world, it’s time to light up your Black Flame Candle this midnight because your favorite Sanderson sisters are back!
The Sanderson sisters are the three wickedly-goofy witches of the Halloween fantasy movie called Hocus Pocus 2. The movie is a sequel to the cult classic Hocus Pocus from 1993, which starred Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker.
In Hocus Pocus 2, two teenagers—Becca and Izzy— accidentally lit up a Black Flame Candle which resurrected Mary, Sarah, and Winifred Sanderson. As a result, the legendary Sanderson sisters from the 17th century return to modern-day Salem child-hungry and in search of revenge right before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.
One way or another, this film is a mildly-haunting fantasy for both witches and non-witches alike, So if you’re in the mood for a not-so-scary Halloween movie, check out Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+.
