Home of the Fighting Puritans? I don’t think so. The Moses Brown School is famously home to the delightfully perverse Fighting Quakers. (I got your gentle persuasion right here.)*
The new trailer for ‘Hocus Pocus 2’ opens with this trio walking under an arch on the Moses Brown campus. (The overlay here is a fuzzy screen grab from the trailer — I try.)
Later in the trailer one can also spot a cemetery and the spire of an old white church — filming also took place at the Newman Church in Rumford.
Variety reports that the movie premieres on Disney+ on September 30th.
*I attended a wrestling match at the school several years ago; trash talk included, “Don’t be so tentative.”
