How to Watch ‘Hocus Pocus’
Walt Disney Pictures

Fall is here, and that means one thing- it’s time to take a trip back to Salem, Massachusetts to visit Max, Dani, Allison and Binx the cat. That’s right, it’s officially Hocus Pocus season. So break out your broomsticks and let’s hop to it. 

In light of the sequel coming in 2022, which is slated to bring back the original trio of Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker, it’s imperative to spend some quality time catching up with the Sanderson sisters this spooky season. Winifred, Mary and Sarah are currently running amok on Disney+, available to subscribers at no extra cost.

Hocus Pocus, directed by High School Musical’s Kenny Ortega, is a comedy-horror film based off of The Witches by Roald Dahl. The film follows a young brother and sister who are new to town as they accidentally entangle themselves in the 300-year old resurrection plot of the Sanderson sisters, a trio of notorious witches. With the help of Binx the cat and a local witch enthusiast, the kids must thwart the sisters' plans to suck the life forces out of all the local children. 

The coming follow-up film to this 1993 Halloween favorite will see the Sanderson sisters resurrected once again, this time by a group of three young women, and we can’t wait to see what these two trios get up to in 2022.

Here’s everything you need to know on how to watch Hocus Pocus, just in time for Halloween.
