Of course, we all know the OG’s of the new Hocus Pocus film but you may not be as familiar with some of the new faces. We’re taking a look at what the younger cast members have done in the past.

With the arrival of Hocus Pocus 2 around the corner, you might be wondering where you have seen the young actors from before. Most people are already familiar with the main stars from the first movie: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker, and Kathy Najimy. This second installment features some younger faces that you might not be as familiar with yet.
