Want to watch Hocus Pocus 2? Here's where you need to go.

Hocus Pocus has become a go-to Halloween movie for fans all around the world. Almost 30 years on from the release of the original movie, we've gotten a bewitching sequel to follow up the franchise with Hocus Pocus 2

The movie sees the Sanderson sisters— once again played by Sarah Jessica Parker, Bette Midler and Kathy Najimy— returning to cause more chaos as All Hallow's Eve looms large over the town of Salem, Massachusetts. 

In the new sequel, a new group of girls lights the Black Flame Candle, inadvertently summoning up the Sandersons who are out for revenge for the execution all over again. Now, it's up to those same new teens to put a stop to the witches' plans before midnight on Halloween night.

Here's where you need to go to watch Hocus Pocus 2.
