What role does the cottage play in Hocus Pocus

The chalet is an integral part Hocus Pocus, as it sets the tone for presenting Sister Sanderson to the public as menacing and wicked witches. It also serves as a plot device to advance the story, because it is there that Max, Dani and Allison discover the remains of the Sanderson legacy. Although unknown to them at the time, their spirits will return to the cabin, and it is there that the trio will find the Black Flame to awaken them. The Sanderson Cottage is also where witches keep their mystical spellbooks, cast their enchantments, and imprison those who fight against them. Although the cottage plays an important role in hocuspocus, it seems based on the initial trailers for Hocus Pocus 2that the sequel takes a different route, with the Sandersons’ legacy on display in a store in Salem, rather than tucked away in their cottage.

However, based on the Airbnb listing, it looks like the chalet will be featured on screen quite frequently throughout Hocus Pocus 2. Whether the new trio of teens discover the witches’ hideout remains to be seen, but it looks like the Black Flame candle is lit somehow, meaning the cottage could make an appearance before the witches return. witches. All will be revealed when Hocus Pocus 2 debuts on Disney+ this Friday, September 30, but until then fans can check out sister Sanderson’s Cottage on Airbnb for now.
