Where Is Hocus Pocus 2 Being Filmed?

Hocus Pocus 2 is bound to be very different from the original. Not only does it feature a new group of teens who conjure up the Sanderson sisters, but it will also feature a new location. While the 1993 film takes place in the iconic town of Salem, MA, the sequel takes place in Rhode Island. Filming officially kicked off in October, and a handful of locals have already shared glimpses of production.

Rhode Island Governor Daniel J. McKee also released a statement about filming, saying, "On behalf of Rhode Island, I am proud and honored that again our beautiful state, with its unique scenery, landscapes and local talent, will be the backdrop for a major motion picture. Film and TV productions such as Hocus Pocus 2 have positive impacts on our businesses and move our economy in the right direction."

Though it's unclear which locations in Rhode Island will be featured in the movie, fans have spotted a lot of filming taking place at Chase Farm in Lincoln. They're actually building an entire town just for the movie! Filming is expected to last until December, so here's hoping we get more glimpses of the movie soon.
