‘Practical Magic 2’ – Warner Bros. Announces Sequel to 1998 Movie


Magic feels practical in a place like this. To the surprise of probably everyone reading this, Warner Bros. has taken to TikTok, yes TikTok, to announce Practical Magic 2 this week.

Akiva Goldsman is on board to write the sequel’s screenplay.

The original 1998 movie was directed by An American Werewolf in London star Griffin Dunne, with Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman leading the cast as bewitching sisters.

Variety reports that Bullock and Kidman are in talks to return!

In the 1998 film, based on Alice Hoffman’s 1995 novel, “Two witch sisters (Bullock and Kidman), raised by their eccentric aunts in a small town, face closed-minded prejudice and a curse which threatens to prevent them ever finding lasting love.”

Practical Magic was released in theaters for Halloween 1998, scaring up $68.3 million against a reported $75 million production budget. And that’s not even factoring in the marketing spend from Warner Bros., which no doubt ensured that the film lost money in theaters.

But like many movies from the 1990s, Practical Magic has gone on to become something of a cult favorite, with a couple different television adaptations failing to materialize over the years.

We can’t say we ever expected Practical Magic 2 to be conjured up by the studio, but stranger things have happened. Will it be a direct sequel to the original? Or more of a remake/reboot? The TikTok posts from WB really don’t tell us anything about what’s in store, but we expect we’ll be learning more soon. So stay tuned for more on the Practical Magic sequel.
