After 26 years, the famous Owens women from the movie “Practical Magic” are making a comeback. Warner Bros. has confirmed a sequel to the beloved 1998 film, with talks of Sandra Bullock and Nicole Kidman reprising their roles.

In the original movie, Bullock and Kidman played the mystical Owens sisters who find themselves entangled in a supernatural mess after Bullock accidentally poisons and kills Kidman’s abusive ex-boyfriend, leading them to bring him back to life. Directed by Griffin Dunne and based on Alice Hoffman’s novel, the first film has become a Halloween favorite for fans who love all things magical.

The new movie will have Akiva Goldsman writing the screenplay, with Bullock and Kidman expected to take on producer roles alongside Denise Di Novi. The news of the sequel sparked excitement among fans, especially after a TikTok announcement teased the availability of the first film on digital platforms.

While a spinoff series called “Rules of Magic” based on Hoffman’s prequel novel was previously in the works at HBO Max, it never materialized. However, the enduring popularity of the Owens family and their magical adventures has kept the fandom alive.

The story of the Owens women traces back to their ancestor Maria Owens, who cast a spell on herself to avoid the pain of love after being abandoned while pregnant. This curse follows the Owens women through generations, leading Bullock and Kidman’s characters to challenge and break free from its grip.

The original film was praised for its enchanting score by Alan Silvestri and the realistic portrayal of magic by Dunne. Additionally, the soundtrack featuring songs by Stevie Nicks and Joni Mitchell added to the mystical atmosphere of the movie.

As fans eagerly await the release of “Practical Magic 2,” they can revisit the magic of the first film through its quirky and romantic trailer. Stay tuned for more updates on the return of the Owens sisters and their bewitching adventures.
