"I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as Hocus Pocus," says Fletcher in a release. "Fans around the world have embraced these characters and have made this film a Halloween tradition whose popularity continues to grow, and how lucky am I to be back at Disney with these three extraordinarily talented ladies in the iconic roles they created, as well as our fabulous new additions to the cast?"

The original Hocus Pocus is now streaming on Disney+.
