Hocus Pocus 2 will reunite Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker as the infamous Sanderson Sisters, a trio of witches who are hell-bent on keeping their youth and “beauty”.

How do they do this?

Obviously by sucking out the souls of innocent children.

Don’t act as if you’ve never done the same thing…

The film will follow an aspiring witch, Becca who accidentally summons the Sanderson Sisters on Halloween after finding the dark flame candle at a local magic shop – which also happens to be the former home of the sisters.

@amandaasheyb shared two videos of her visit to the set. Although the videos are short we can see wooden structures being built.

It’s believed that Chase Farm will be double as a village from the 1600s, possibly for a flashback scene.
