Disney celebrated the D23: the entertainment company’s fan club this weekend. Fortunately, it doesn’t just do that with its fans, because the whole world can enjoy a lot of announcements and trailers from the world of Disney.
Hocus pocus 2
Living legend Bette Midler joins Kathy Najimy and Sarah Jessica Parker as a group of very magical women in Hocus Pocus 2. Especially for the occasion, a new trailer has been released for the film, which takes place 29 years after the Black Flame Candle was lit. . The Sanderson sisters seek revenge and three high school students must stop it. Hocus Pocus 2 will be available exclusively on Disney+ on September 30.
It’s probably one of the most charming Disney movies of all time: Enchanted, which stars Amy Adams as a fairytale character who ends up in the real world. Disenchanted is the sequel, which will be released on Disney+ on November 24. This is the new trailer:
The Little Mermaid
The live-action version of The Little Mermaid had to be made after Aladdin and Jungle Book and we are now close. In May 2023 we see the film in cinemas, with Halle Bailey in the role of the stubborn mermaid. In the new trailer we see how ‘Part of Your World’ sounds and that is very promising.
There were no trailers for other films, but there were screenings of scenes that unfortunately cannot be found online. Among others by Peter Pan & Wendy, in which we seem to see the well-known characters completely differently. Jude Law is Captain Hook, Alexander Molony is Peter Pan and Ever Anderson is Wendy. This story mainly revolves around Wendy and how she goes out with Peter Pan. When is unknown, but in 2023 the film is expected on Disney+.
Haunted Mansion is a new horror comedy that will be released next year. It is based on the eponymous attraction from the Disney parks and the director is Justin Simien, who funnily enough also once worked at Disneyland. Also news about MUFASA: The Lion King, which will not be released until 2024. The public seems to have seen some flashbacks of Rafiki, Timon and Pumbaa about when Mufasa was a cub. Finally, there is also a short talk about Snow White, with Gal Gadot as the evil stepmother and Rachel Zegler as Snow White. That film will also be released in 2024.
