New Characters Revealed for HOCUS POCUS Sequel Novel

HocusPocus CVR 011718 201x300 - New Characters Revealed for HOCUS POCUS Sequel NovelThe new Hocus Pocus sequel novel is coming this July and today we have a list of the fresh faces that will be joining in on the Halloween fun. As Oh, my Disney laid out today, the new characters include:

Poppy Dennison: An introspective aspiring photographer, seventeen-year-old Poppy isn’t exactly Halloween’s biggest fan. (She hasn’t worn a costume in a decade, for witch’s sake!) And she’s also a skeptic of all things supernatural, including her parents’ (in)famous story about their Halloween night twenty-five years ago, when her dad allegedly resurrected and banished a coven of evil witches (yes, those evil witches). When Poppy musters the courage to share her family’s backstory with her new friend and crush, Isabella Richards, she sets in motion Halloween plans that Salem will never forget.

Travis Reese: Travis is a math and chemistry whiz, a master of bad puns, and Poppy’s loyal BFF. For a long time, he was the only one who knew about Poppy’s bizarre family history involving the Sanderson sisters. Like Poppy, he doesn’t believe in evil witches or old-timey ghosts . . . until he comes face-to-face with them. As he would say, “I didn’t ex-specter this!”

Isabella Richards: Isabella seems to have the perfect life. She’s the most popular girl at Jacob Bailey High and has an admirable list of extracurriculars—not to mention a killer report card. It’s no wonder Poppy thinks no one holds a candle to her. (See what we did there?) After Isabella befriends Poppy and Travis at the start of the school year, Poppy shares her family’s connection to the Sanderson sisters. Isabella is itching to know more . . . but why?

The book is a two-parter: Part one is a retelling of the original Hocus Pocus film, and part two is a sequel that continues the story of our favorite characters and the next generation of Salem teens.

Hocus Pocus and the All-New Sequel will be on sale on July 10, 2018.

Synopsis:

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.
