‘Hocus Pocus 2′ Crew Shops for Props at New Bedford Antique Shop
When the highly-anticipated Hocus Pocus sequel is finally released, you'll want to keep your eyes peeled for pieces of the SouthCoast on set.
By now, folks all over New England are well-aware that the cast and crew of Hocus Pocus 2 will be filming the Halloween classic's second film in Rhode Island this fall. We've seen a sneak peek of some of the film's sets going up in Lincoln, and crews have even reached out to residents of the greater Providence area looking for people to play extras in the movie. Yes, that means folks here on the SouthCoast could star alongside the Sanderson sister themselves: Bette Midler, Sarah Jessica Parker and Kathy Najimy!
But there may be more from the SouthCoast making an appearance in the spooky saga. New Bedford Antiques at the Cove shared this photo on Monday morning after the Hocus Pocus 2 design crew stopped by the Kilburn Mill on West Rodney French Boulevard to shop for props.
"We're so excited!" New Bedford Antiques at the Cove wrote on Facebook. "Keep an eye out for some of these pieces making their big debut!"
Among the treasures the crew picked up were an old gumball machine, a Halloween jack-o'-lantern decoration and some rustic-style furniture. But New Bedford Antiques at the Cove said that's not it, and that the picture only shows about half of what the movie's crew purchased.
Way to go, Hocus Pocus 2 design crew, for shopping local! We'll be certain to watch out for some of these SouthCoast antiques when the movie finally makes its debut.
