This book is the fourth installment in Hoffman’s series, offering a continuation rather than a prequel like the two middle installments. Fans don’t have to worry about missing out on the intervening stories, as the sequel will stay true to the chronology established by the first film, according to a report from Collider.

Faithfulness to the original

Di Novi assured fans that the sequel will honor the spirit and characters of the original film. “I think (fans) are going to be very happy. We’re going to be very faithful. We know how important these characters and this movie are to a lot of people. We’re not going to reinvent the wheel. We’re going to draw from Alice Hoffman’s books, just like we did with the first movie, and we’re going to be faithful to the chronology of how many years have passed,” Di Novi told EW.

Cast News: Who Will Return?

While Bullock and Kidman are confirmed to return, the rest of the cast from the original film have not yet been finalized. Di Novi noted, “We’re not 100 percent sure which characters will be back,” indicating it’s early days for the project, as mentioned in a report by Collider. However, there’s hope that Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest could reprise their roles as the eccentric aunts, and Evan Rachel Wood could return as Sally’s daughter Kylie.

Commitment to original elements

Above all, Di Novi emphasized the team’s commitment to respecting the original characters, stories and locations. That commitment is key to maintaining the authentic charm of the film that captivated audiences more than two decades ago.

Release window and waiting

While specific dates have not yet been set, Di Novi hinted that Practical Magic 2 is set to release in 2025. Anticipation is growing as fans eagerly await further updates and a final return to the Owens sisters’ enchanting world.
