The Halloween movie debuted on Disney+ just a few days ago, where it brought the Sanderson Sisters back from the dead…again! We’ve seen a ton of celebrations for the film, but how well did it actually do on the streaming service? Well, Disney has released an update, and it might surprise you!
Hocus Pocus 2 is the number 1 movie premiere on Disney+ to date, according to Disney. They say this was based on the hours the movie was watched domestically during the first 3 days that it was available on the streaming service.

Do note, however, that no numbers were released with this announcement, as we haven’t traditionally seen streaming services release that information.
Hocus Pocus 2 was released on Disney+ on Friday, September 30th, and is a sequel to the cult classic Hocus Pocus, which debuted in theaters back in 1993 — almost 30 years ago!
The film stars the original trio of witches played by Bette Midler, Kathy Najimy, and Sarah Jessica Parker. You can watch it over on Disney+ right now!
