A ‘Practical Magic’ sequel is coming

A 'Practical Magic' sequel is coming

It might be 26 years old, but we're still thinking about Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman in the 90s cult classic film Practical Magic. The witchy film about sisterhood, despite its initial panning by critics, still seems to resonate with fans all these years later.

Excitingly for the film's devout fans, Warner Brother's have confirmed some special news via Instagram this week – that a sequel, Practical Magic 2, is officially in the works. Even more excitingly? The film's original stars might both be making their silver-screen return. Everything we know so far about the film, plot, cast and release date, below...

What is it about?

The original Practical Magic film followed orphaned sister witches Sally (Bullock) and Gillian (Kidman) being raised by their aunts Francis (Stockard Channing) and Jet (Dianne Wiest). A curse placed on their bloodline leads to them to swear off magic in their adult lives, but some hairy situations lead them back to their craft.

The original film is based on the same-name book by Alice Hoffman, but the book is actually a part of a series: Practical Magic, The Rules of Magic, Magic Lessons, The Book of Magic. We think it's likely the Practical Magic sequel could follow the plot of some of Hoffman's follow-up books, but only time will tell.


Who is involved?

According to Deadline, the original 1998 film's witchy leading duo – Nicole Kidman and Sandra Bullock – are currently both in negotiations to return to their characters. Outside of the film's leading ladies, however, we're still in the dark on who else will be joining the cast.


When will it be released?

According to Warner Brothers, Practical Magic sequel is "in development and coming soon". But as for a more specific timelines – and release date - for the film, we're yet to be informed of any details. But, we'll keep you updated here when we know more.
