Prepare to get spooky!

It's great news for fans of the iconic Hocus Pocus film, as a release date for the sequel has been confirmed.

Filming for the follow-up has officially finished, and now we just have to be patient for it to come out.

Well, a release window, anyway, and it's suitably creepy.

One of the film's producers, Adam Shankman shared a post on his Instagram.

He wrote: "SISTAAAAAHHHHSSS! Aaaaand that’s a WRAP!!! Congratulations to the amazing team" before thanking the cast and crew.

He then wrote what everyone has been wanting to know: "Coming to you #halloween #2022 on Disney Plus."

Before you write October 31st in the diary, it might not be that exact date.

However, it's probably safe to assume it will be coming out in October.

Stars from the first film, Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy are reuniting as the Sanderson Sisters.

They're being joined by new cast members who once again release the witches in the modern day.

They must find a way to stop them.

One of the new additions, Lilia Buckingham, shared her excitement: "These last four months have been some of the most insane, and most incredible of my whole life.

"I'm still in awe of the fact that I got to watch and learn from all of the people on this set," she continued. "And to Whit and Bel, thank you for becoming my sisters. I've learned more from the two of you than you could ever know. See you soon witches. You're in for a hell of a ride."
