A trio of RuPaul’s Drag Race stars makes a surprise cameo in Hocus Pocus 2 – and fans are absolutely loving it. Ginger Minj, Kahmora Hall and Kornbread transform into the Sanderson Sisters for the long-awaited sequel that dropped on Disney+ yesterday.

Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy have reprised their spooky roles in a sequel to the hit 1993 movie.

But they aren’t the only Sanderson Sisters this time around.

As well as a young trio of stars portraying the characters as children, the movie features a string of people dressed up as the famous witches, including the three Drag Race stars.
