Big news for Hocus Pocus fans this week! Disney just released an actual Hocus Pocus sequel!!!! Now, while it’s not another movie, it is a new book that’s a retelling of the movie with a SEQUEL set 25 years after the events of the movie. You can order it here. My copy showed up yesterday and I’ll be reading it this weekend. And you can snag my mug here.
