Hocus Pocus 2 reveals character stickers and emojis on Twitter

The Sanderson evil sisters are taking flight for the first time in nearly 30 years later this month, with Disney+ celebrating each character with not only new stickers, but also unique emoji on Twitter. This isn’t the first look at the characters, as we’ve already seen them in several photos and teasers, but considering how long it’s been since fans have asked for a sequel, seeing these posters and seeing them celebrate on Twitter reminds us of just how close we are to their official return. Check out the new character posters and emojis below before the movie debuts on Disney+ on September 30th.

The series of tweets featured Kathy Najmi as Wendy Sanderson, Bette Midler as Winnifred Sanderson, and Sarah Jessica Parker as Sarah Sanderson. Fans using the hashtags #WendySanderson, #WinifredSanderson, and #SarahSanderson will be able to see emojis displaying their similarities, while the hashtags #HocusPocus2 claim the black flame candle emoji.

The new movie is described, “It’s been 29 years since someone lit a black-flame candle and resurrected 17th century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, as they seek revenge. Now it’s up to three high school students to figure out how to stop predatory witches from wreaking havoc. A new kind of havoc in Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.”

Original movie stars Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy are all back for adventure, along with original star Doug Jones, who plays Billy Butcherson. This time, the Sanderson sisters target Becca (gossip girlWhitney Peak, Cassie (dirtLilia Buckingham), Izzy (american horror storiesBellisa Escobedo). Other newcomers to the franchise include Tony Hill, Sam Richardson, Hannah Waddingham, Jojo Brenner, Furry Jetters, Taylor Henderson, and Nina Kitchen.

While fans are excited about the return of the Sanderson sisters and the new stars joining the franchise, some are disappointed that original stars Omri Katz, Vince Shaw and Tora Burch won’t be back for the outing. Director Anne Fletcher previously outlined the difficulties of trying to tell a new story for a new generation while honoring what came before it.

“We wanted to weave all the people that fans loved, and when you sit down with all the ingredients and the story, you’re like, how do we make that work?” Fletcher explained to Entertainment Weekly. “It was very hard trying to get them to be a part of it, because we talked about it — so hard. You try to stay on track with the story, even if they come as an appearance.”

Fletcher added, “People were saying, ‘They could be in the background! And I love, really? You’re going to put the leaders of the first movie in the background and you’ll be satisfied? You won’t be satisfied, you’ll be angry.”
