It’s time to start mixing your Midnight Margaritas because Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman could be returning for Practical Magic 2. The two actresses are said to be in talks to reprise their roles as witch sisters Sally and Gillian Owens for the sequel, 26 years on from the 1998 classic.

‘It’s official! Practical Magic 2 is in development and coming soon,’ Warner Bros confirmed this week.

Sandra, 59, and Nicole, 56, are also expected to be co-producers on the movie, which will be written by Akiva Goldsman, who co-wrote the original script.

Fans were excited with the news. ‘Witches we won!’ one said. Another remarked, ‘The broom fell, company is coming and I’m beyond thrilled.’

Practical Magic, which is based on Alice Hoffman’s book of the same name, had some box office success on its release but soon gained a cult following amongst fans.

While details for the sequel are being kept under wraps, it’s expected to be based on author Alice’s other three books. ‘I got mail from readers saying that they wanted to have a sequel, that they wanted to know what happened to the characters,’ she said.

The 1998 film, which also starred Stockard Channing, Dianne Wiest and Goran Visnjic, followed the orphan siblings Sally (Sandra) and Gillian (Nicole), who have magical powers but live under a curse. The pair unleash a series of supernatural events when Gillian’s new boyfriend Jimmy (Goran) gets killed accidentally as they try to break the family curse.

Practical Magic isn’t the only ‘90s film, which is getting the sequel treatment. Here are some other cult classics which are returning for a follow-up:

Romy And Michele’s High School Reunion

Lisa Kudrow and Mira Sorvino is officially set to return, with both stars locked in to return to their beloved roles from the 1997 film. ‘We’re full force ahead. Lisa and I are wrapping up our deals as executive producers on it with the studio,’ Mira said earlier this year.

Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert

30 years on after the release of The Adventures Of Priscilla, Queen Of The Desert in 1994, the original trio – Terence Stamp, Guy Pearce and Hugo Weaving – are to get back into their wigs and heels for the follow-up. Stephan Elliott is returning as director, writer and producer.


July sees the release of Twisters, the standalone sequel to Twister, 28 years on from the original disaster drama in 1996. While it was hoped that Helen Hunt and Bill Paxton would return, talks didn’t work out. Instead, Daisy Edgar-Jones, Glen Powell and Anthony Ramos star as the new generation of storm chasers.
