According to various sources, the two actresses are in talks for the second film which has been confirmed by Warner Bros., reigniting excitement among fans of the original movie.

"Practical Magic," directed by Griffin Dunne and based on Alice Hoffman's 1995 novel, follows the Owens sisters, played by Bullock and Kidman. The sisters navigate life as witches under a family curse that kills any man who falls in love with them. The story delves into their efforts to break this curse, especially after a series of unfortunate supernatural events following an attempt to revive a deceased ex-boyfriend.

Fans began buzzing when the original "Practical Magic" was made available for streaming on Max, announced at midnight on TikTok - a clever nod to the iconic "midnight margaritas" scene from the film. The official confirmation of the sequel followed soon after, causing a frenzy among the movie's dedicated fanbase.

Akiva Goldsman, who co-wrote the original script, is set to return as the screenplay writer. Both Bullock and Kidman are also expected to produce the sequel, partnering with Denise Di Novi from the original production team. While plot details remain under wraps, this venture promises to dive deeper into the magical world that captured hearts over two decades ago.

The first "Practical Magic" film remains a staple for fans of the supernatural and those who adore a bit of spooky romance. It is revered for its blend of magical realism, strong performances by the cast - including Stockard Channing and Dianne Wiest - and an unforgettable soundtrack featuring talents like Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell.

Previously, an HBO spinoff series titled "Rules of Magic," based on Hoffman's prequel novel, was in development but never materialized. This upcoming sequel is a long-awaited continuation that hopes to capture the unique charm and sisterhood that made the original a classic.

As we await further details, one thing is certain: the magic is far from over. For those new to the world of "Practical Magic" or lifelong fans, the sequel promises to cast its spell once again.
