The American film director behind 2007 hit Hairspray will work alongside scriptwriter Jen D'Angelo on the magic project.
A Hocus Pocus sequel was first brought to our attention by Sarah Jessica Parker who famously played Sarah Sanderson in the original 1993 flick.
The actress uploaded a mysterious Instagram post back in November 2019 featuring a snap of herself alongside her on-screen sisters - Winifred (played by Bette Midler) and Mary (Kathy Najimy) in the film's inimitable I Put A Spell On You scene.
Accompanying the picture was the cryptic caption: "Halloween 2019. One for the books. X, SJ".
Not wanting to wait in suspense any longer, a fan commented on the post, posing the question that was on everyone's lips: "Any chance of a sequel?! 🤞🏼🙏🏼."
Lo and behold, SJP responded! The star confirmed that she and her fellow Sanderson sister co-stars have agreed to sign on for Hocus Pocus part two saying: "We have all said yes. Now, we wait."
In case you need reminding, the quirky comedy chronicles the lives of three sister-witches and their exploits in Salem, Massachusetts when they're inadvertently resurrected from the dead by an unsuspecting teenager.
In the years following the film's 1993 debut, many rumours have flown around teasing the idea of a sequel to the cult comedy.
Now, it seems magic really does exist.
