One of Disney‘s most beloved movies, Hocus Pocus, is getting an update this summer thanks to Disney Book Group and published by Freeform.
Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on Earth to torment Salem for all eternity.
Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don’t quite go as planned, it’s a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches’ latest death-defying scheme.
Hocus Pocus and The All-New Sequel: The Cult Classic & The New Sequel will be a two-part young adult novel series that will not only retell the events of the first movie but also picks the story up 25 years later. This coincides with the 25th anniversary of the movie’s original release. This book written by A.W. Janatha and illustrated by Matt Griffin follows the announcement that the Disney Channel will be releasing a remake of Hocus Pocus.
