The black candle seems to be lit yet again, and Sarah Jessica Parker is ready to awaken her inner witch. The actor has started filming for Hocus Pocus 2, the sequel to the 1993 cult film.

Parker took to Instagram Stories and shared a glimpse of her look from the film. The videos show tubes of makeup being blended by an off screen artist and a peek at a blonde wig. Parker is heard in the background saying ‘hair and makeup test on HP2’.

The videos do not show her face, and she stops filming by saying that they are in the early stages of production and that she cannot not reveal any more.

Set in Salem, Massachusetts, Hocus Pocus tells the story of three menacing witches who are executed for murder back in the 1600s. They are summoned almost three hundred years later, when a young boy unwittingly lights a cursed black candle and brings them back to life.

Although the film was not a hit at the time of its release, it gained huge popularity as a cult classic, with both fans and critics expressing their interest at a sequel. The sequel was announced in 2019.

The sequel will see Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy reprise their roles as the three witch sisters.

In addition, Hocus Pocus 2 will also have Whitney Peak, Lilia Buckingham, Belissa Escobedo, Doug Jones, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.

Hocus Pocus 2, directed by Anne Fletcher, will premiere on Disney+ in the United States next year. An India release date is yet to be confirmed.
