Hocus Pocus

I feel like we’ll all get what we want from this, SJP hinted at ‘songs’ on Watch What Happens Live and you can find the main song on YouTube on some dodgy footage from behind the scenes and it is just as good as I Put A Spell On You for me!
I really thought a sequel would happen involving Thora Birch, so even though it's a nice bit of nostalgia I can't say I'm not disappointed.

I was actually convinced the reason Thora backed out of the Wednesday Addams Netflix show was because she got offered a big part in Hocus Pocus 2. It's truly bizarre. I discovered this when Grace Randolph mentioned it in a livestream a while back. So I just assumed that Thora was going back to where it all began for her. It would make total sense. Her being the owner of the magic shop. Imagine my surprise and utter disappointment when we saw the actual owner in the teaser. Unless they're keeping her as a surprise. Out of Dani, Max and Allison, I just want Dani back the most. She basically stole the show and my heart.
Review embargo is up, 68% on Rotten Tomatoes so far :https://www.rottentomatoes.com/m/hocus_pocus_2

Generally the reviews range from negative to quite good, but they were never really going to be any better than that were they? The original had a 39% RT rating so the critics seem much kinder to this one.

As long as you don't go in expecting the world it seems like it should be a basic but silly good time for fans of the original.
It has a 60 on Metacritic. I think that's great considering critics hated the first one.
13 positive/ 6 mixed/ 1 negative.

I can't wait to watch it over the weekend.
