Hocus Pocus 2 Plot Details – What Will the Song Be?

**Potential Spoilers Ahead**

The official press release synopsis for Hocus Pocus 2 is as follows:

“Three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.” 

Following a similar plot to the original movie, curious kids are the ones responsible for returning the witches to Salem and director Fletcher also confirmed that Thackery Binx will be returning to lend a hand, except this time, he will be in a different form.

Furthermore, the tantalizing song of the sequel is rumored to be Blondie’s One Way or Another, where Bette Midler will take the solo once again.
