Hocus Pocus & The All New Sequel by A. W. Jantha

hocus pocus

Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens.

Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on Earth to torment Salem for all eternity.

Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don’t quite go as planned, it’s a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches’ latest death-defying scheme.

This book is a week away from coming out, and I’m just already crying now. It’s just this beautiful thing that I just can’t wait to have in my hand. I loveeeeeeeeeeeeee this movie, and it was everything from my childhood. And not only is it the story of my beloved movie, but it’s the sequel!!!! I AM STILL SQUEALING BECAUSE MORE SANDERSON SISTERS. MORE WITCHY GOODNESS. I CAN’T DEAL. Just excuse me as I go cry in the corner that this exists.

What do you think? Are you as excited about this book coming out? Are you a big Hocus Pocus fan? What is on your waiting list? Let’s discuss in the comments below!

  1. I saw this on Barnes and Noble when I was checking out their “Coming Soon” section. I actually went back and forth about getting it for a while but ultimately decided to pre-order it- for much of the same reasons as you! I LOVED the movie as a kid, and STILL must watch it every Halloween. It is probably one of my favorite movies of all time to be honest. I am looking forward to having it in my hands, on my shelf, and available for rereads every Halloween (to go along with the movie of course) :]

    1. Yessssssssssssssssssssssss. I love how it’s a dual tie in of the first movie and the sequel. I have my fingers crossed that my friend will be getting it for me, but if not, I’ll be preordering for it. I SO agree about it being one of the best. And I think the Modern Witch needs it to add to the bookshelf? 😉

      1. It totally walked up to us, slapped us in the face and said how dare you not realize you needed this? It also makes me really want to sing the songs.
