‘RuPaul’s Drag Race’ stars join cast of ‘Hocus Pocus 2’

RuPauls Drag Race stars Kornbread, Kahmora Hall join the cast of Hocus Pocus 2 as drag versions Mary and Sarah Sanderson
and they join Ginger Minj, who EW previously confirmed will appear as a drag version of Bette Midler’s Winifred Sanderson in the Disney+ sequel.

EW has confirmed through a source close to production that the drag superstars joined the Hocus Pocus sequel cast as drag versions of Sarah and Mary Sanderson, portrayed by Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy in the 1993 original and the upcoming Disney+ movie. Season 13 alum Kahmora plays the drag version of Sarah, while season 14 queen Kornbread appears as Mary.

In the film the Sanderson Sisters return to Salem to wreak havoc on town residents 29 years after the events of the first film. According to another source close to the film, the Drag Race stars filmed a scene in Rhode Island in November 2021 in which they portray impersonations of the Sanderson Sisters at a drag show when the real witches show up…

In addition to Midler, Parker, and Najimy, original Hocus Pocus actor Doug Jones will return for the sequel in the role of Billy Butcherson, with Ted Lasso Emmy winner Hannah Waddingham and Veep alums Tony Hale and Sam Richardson also set for supporting roles in the highly anticipated sequel to the Kenny Ortega-directed original.

“I am beyond thrilled to be involved in the sequel to a film that is as beloved as Hocus Pocus,”

sequel director Anne Fletcher said last year in a statement about the movie’s production.

“Fans around the world have embraced these characters and have made this film a Halloween tradition whose popularity continues to grow, and how lucky am I to be back at Disney with these three extraordinarily talented ladies in the iconic roles they created, as well as our fabulous new additions to the cast?”

Hocus Pocus 2 is set for release on Disney+ this fall.
