What to expect from the sequel to Return of the Witches
The original 1993 film follows the Sanderson sisters, executed during the Salem trials for being witches. But by mistake they are resurrected 300 years later and seek to destroy all the children of Massachusetts to achieve eternal youth.
Return of the Witches was not the box office success that Disney had hoped for. Despite the circumstances, it soon became a cult movie especially for young people who grew up watching it on the Disney Channel. For this reason the idea of a possible sequel has always been on the table. But it was finally in 2019 when Disney announced that they would become a reality and is expected to arrive through Disney +.
The development of the sequel is in the last stages of pre-production and not many details of the film are known, so the return of the original cast would be a great success. Someone who will not return is the director of the first part Kenny Ortega, Adam Shankman will take his place. Until new details for the sequel and cast confirmation are confirmed, Return of the Witches is available on Disney +.
