Michael Henry, Daryl Jim Diaz, and Tim Murray played the teens in the 1993 film, directed by Kenny Ortega, who later helmed High School Musical.

Then viewers meet the magic shop owner Gilbert, played by Sam Richardson, whom Veep fans will recognize as the lovable and hyper-competent Richard Splett.

Whitney’s character Becca is celebrating her 16th birthday and plans to have a typical quiet birthday with a ‘scary movie marathon.’

The arrival of the cat brings back memories of a character from the original film called Thackery Binx, a 17th century man who gets transfigured into a black cat and is doomed to live forever in his feline form. 

‘You know, legend has it is on the 16th birthday that a witch gets her powers,’ Gilbert says as a black cat scampers eerily across his establishment.

Billy is the ex-boyfriend of the Bette Midler character Winifred Sanderson – ex because he philandered with the Sarah Jessica Parker character Sarah Sanderson.

In another throwback to the 1993 movie, the teaser includes a shot of the grave of Billy Butcherson, played by returning cast member Doug Jones.

Apparently Billy is being brought back from the dead again, as a shot in the new teaser shows a shovel striking the ground in front of his tombstone.

Winifred retaliated by poisoning Billy into an early grave – from which she retrieves him as a zombie in the original film.

The memorable Black Flame Candle is set up on the ground between them as they utter the incantation that puts the spell into effect.

Soon the new teens for the sequel are seen venturing into the forest and sitting on the leafy ground, performing the ritual to bring the Sandersons back.

At once the black flame blazes and a fissure opens up in the ground, with a malignant scarlet glare pouring out from under the earth.
