The first look at Disney+’s upcoming Hocus Pocus sequel has arrived, offering fans a first glimpse at the reunification of the Sanderson sisters, portrayed by Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy.

Hocus Pocus 2 was confirmed to be in development in 2019. Jen D’Angelo wrote the screenplay. Production wrapped up just earlier this month after a few ending scenes were reshot.

Directed by Anne Fletcher, the trailer sees the witchy sisters return to the town of Salem, Massachusetts after being summoned once again, this time, by two high school students. While the witches died at the end of the 1993 original movie, directed by Kenny Ortega, they’re resurrected in the sequel with yet another lighting of the Black Flame Candle.

“It’s been 29 years since someone lit the Black Flame Candle and resurrected the 17th-century sisters, and they are looking for revenge,” the movie’s synopsis reads. “Now it is up to three high-school students to stop the ravenous witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on Salem before dawn on All Hallow’s Eve.”

Alongside the trio of sisters, Doug Jones will reprise his role as Billy Butcherson, an ex-boyfriend of one of the witches who died by poisoning a few hundred years ago. The cast will also include Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Whitney Peak and Drag Race stars Ginger Minj, Kahmora Hall and Kornbread Jeté.

Hocus Pocus 2 will premiere ahead of the Halloween season, hitting Disney+ on September 30.
