Hocus Pocus 2 weaves Disney history into the Sanderson Sisters' costumes

Today, Disney's long-awaited sequel to the Halloween classic Hocus Pocus, Hocus Pocus 2, comes out exclusively on Disney+.

The live-action comedy follows the evil Sanderson sisters (Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy) in modern-day Salem.

Since someone last lighted the Black Flame Candle, the witches have returned seeking more than retribution.

Someone last ignited the Black Flame Candle 29 years ago, reviving the witches. Now they're returned seeking more than vengeance.

At first sight, the witches may seem unchanged from the 1993 film. For the sequel, the directors sought comparable outfits, but not exact reproductions.

Costume designer Salvador Perez sought to update their appearance. The witches dissolved in the previous film, so they'd require new outfits.
