Disney+ has found a director to head up Hocus Pocus 2with Adam Shankman. At least that’s what sources are telling Variety. Shankman has a rich history in musicals and films for the kiddos so it sounds like a nice fit.

The road to Hocus Pocus 2 has been a winding one, and hard to keep up with. The back and forths have included original Sanderson Sister cast members saying that they will or might be onboard with a sequel. Bette Midler in-particular seems keen on returning.

But now, it doesn’t look like a certainty.

“The original Hocus Pocus cast members are not attached to the sequel, but Disney is hopeful that they will become involved in some capacity. Sources say that ideally the trio of actresses will reprise their roles, rather than having to completely reboot the first film.” Variety reports.

So, the answer to “Will the Sander Sisters return in Hocus Pocus 2?” is a big fat maybe. We are certainly hoping that they will all return. We also hope that it isn’t for a cameo. Just put the original three in there as the featured baddies again.

What do you guy think? Excited about Shankman’s involvement? Let us know in the comments section.
