When the sequel to the 1993 classic was first announced, ET previously reported that the film will “see three young women accidentally bringing the Sanderson Sisters back to modern-day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.”
And rounding out the cast is Doug Jones returning as Billy Butcherson with Whitney Peak as Becca, Lilia Buckingham as Cassie and Belissa Escobedo as Izzy, three young women in present-day Salem who incite the wrath of the three witches.
Hannah Waddingham, Tony Hale, Sam Richardson, Juju Brener, Froy Gutierrez, Taylor Paige Henderson and Nina Kitchen will also appear in the new film.
The original trio each took to Instagram at the time to share the news about the sequel. “Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… But we’re BACK! 🧹,” Midler wrote on Instagram, while Parker captioned hers, “Yep. I’m ready. To run. Amok, amok, amok, amok.🕯️”
“The people have spoken: I smell children…again,” Najimy teased.
