One way or another, (mostly) everyone is loving the Disney+ sequel.

The Sanderson sisters are running amok amok amok once again on Disney+, following the release of the long-awaited sequel 'Hocus Pocus 2'.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy have been resurrected as Winnie, Sarah and Mary one more time after the lighting of a new black flame candle by a new generation of young Salem residents. But this time around, Winnie has a dastardly plan in mind so she and her sisters can finally live past sunrise.

It's been 29 years since the original was first released, and since then it's become quite the pop culture phenomenon for all of the right reasons. Campy and chaotic, featuring some stand-out performances from the main trio, many had their reservations when Disney announced that a sequel film was on the way.

While it might not win Best Picture at the Oscars anytime soon, the Halloween caper follow-up has gone down a festive treat with most fans of the original on Twitter (Rotten Tomatoes showcases a so-so reaction).
