WATCH: First look at Hocus Pocus 2 as Disney shares teaser

We need it now.

Disney+ has shared the first look at Hocus Pocus 2 and to say we’re excited is probably the understatement of the century.

Giving us a sneak peek, the upcoming and highly anticipated sequel was shown in a round up of all the new shows and films coming to the streaming service in the new year.

Showing Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy returning as the Sanderson sisters, the snippet still leaves enough to the imagination, but enough to get us buzzed.

The Sanderson sisters are back and better than ever, celebrating a Halloween festival or carnival from the looks of things.

While details of the plot are being kept top secret, Disney has said: “Three young women accidentally bring the Sanderson Sisters back to modern-day Salem and must figure out how to stop the child-hungry witches from wreaking a new kind of havoc on the world.”

Joining our favourite witches are new characters Becca, played by Whitney Peak, Cassie, played by Lilia Buckingham and Izzy, played by Belissa Escobedo.

Speaking to People about the new film, Bette Midler said: “They presented us with an outline, and after we picked ourselves up off the floor because it’s been 27 years, we looked at it and I think all of us agreed that it was pretty great.”

The three main stars reunited last year for a virtual Halloween party to raise money for charity ahead of the sequel being announced.

Bette Midler, as well as the rest of the cast, tweeted a few months ago to announce the release date for Hocus Pocus 2, sharing an image of the Hocus Pocus 2 poster saying: “Sistaaaahs! It’s been 300 years… But we’re BACK! #HocusPocus2 arrives Fall 2022 on DisneyPlus.”
