Hocus Pocus 2 is exclusive to Disney+. That means that you’ll need to sign up for Disney’s premium streaming service in order to watch Hocus Pocus 2 online in the U.S. Unfortunately, the Disney+ free trial was done away with awhile ago, so as of now, there’s no way to watch Hocus Pocus 2 for free. The good news is that Disney+ is quite affordable at just $8 per month or $80 per year, and with a huge library of Disney, Marvel, and Star Wars shows and films (along with other exclusive content), you’ve got a lot of entertainment at your fingertips here.

Another, and perhaps better, option is to sign up for the Disney Bundle. This gets you Disney+ along with basic Hulu and ESPN+ for just $14 per month, saving you a nice chunk of change on the combined prices of three streaming services. Along with letting you watch Hocus Pocus 2 online, the Disney Bundle also gets you access to the catalog of Hulu shows and movies as well as all the live an on-demand sports entertainment that ESPN+ has to offer, such as UFC fight live streams.

Traveling abroad and still want to watch Hocus Pocus 2 on Disney+? If you’re outside of the U.S., region-based broadcasting restrictions can make streaming difficult.

A VPN encrypts and routes your connection through remote servers, making it easy to bypass streaming restrictions so you can enjoy your content libraries from anywhere. Our top pick among the best VPN services is NordVPN, which is a secure, reliable, affordable, and easy-to-use virtual private that delivers the fast speeds you need for streaming.

None of them — not even Richard Donner's Superman — were seen as an avenue for meaningful artistic cinematic expression. But that all began to change when Tim Burton's Batman hit theaters 35 years ago this week.
