July 10 marked the 25th anniversary of one of the greatest Halloween movies of all time: Hocus Pocus. And when I got the chance to participate in a giveaway for Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel, I had three initial thoughts: 1. 25 years?! 2. THACKERY BINX. *heart eyes emoji* 3. Why didn't they release this originally in October?
Disney Hyperion is partnering with FYA for this giveaway—read on to find out more about Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel and how to enter!
THE OFFICIAL WORD
Hocus Pocus is beloved by Halloween enthusiasts all over the world. Diving once more into the world of witches, this electrifying two-part young adult novel, released on the twenty-fifth anniversary of the 1993 film, marks a new era of Hocus Pocus. Fans will be spellbound by a fresh retelling of the original film, followed by the all-new sequel that continues the story with the next generation of Salem teens.
Shortly after moving from California to Salem, Massachusetts, Max Dennison finds himself in hot water when he accidentally releases a coven of witches, the Sanderson sisters, from the afterlife. Max, his sister, and his new friends (human and otherwise) must find a way to stop the witches from carrying out their evil plan and remaining on earth to torment Salem for all eternity.
Twenty-five years later, Max and Allison’s seventeen-year-old daughter, Poppy, finds herself face-to-face with the Sanderson sisters in all their sinister glory. When Halloween celebrations don’t quite go as planned, it’s a race against time as Poppy and her friends fight to save her family and all of Salem from the witches’ latest vile scheme.
