The new movie is described, “It’s been 29 years since someone lit a black-flame candle and resurrected 17th century sisters who were executed for practicing witchcraft, as they seek revenge. Now it’s up to three high school students to figure out how to stop predatory witches from wreaking havoc. A new kind of havoc in Salem before midnight on All Hallow’s Eve.”

While fans are understandably excited about the new movie, some are certainly disappointed that original stars Omri Katz, Vince Shaw and Tora Birch don’t appear in the sequel, with director Anne Fletcher previously detailing the challenge of integrating those characters while also trying to introduce the series to a new generation.
“We wanted to weave all the people that fans loved, and when you sit down with all the ingredients and the story, you’re like, ‘How do we make that work?” Fletcher explained to Entertainment Weekly. “It was very hard trying to get them to be a part of it, because we talked about it — so hard. You try to stay on track with the story, even if they come as an appearance.”
Fletcher added, “People were saying, ‘They could be in the background! And I love, really? You’re going to put the leaders of the first movie in the background and you’ll be satisfied? You won’t be satisfied, you’ll be angry.”
