It's Adam Shankman! He did an incredible job with his version of Hairspray, with his main goal being to please the loyal fans so he is a great pick to be assigned this one too!

A Walk to Remember director Adam Shankman posted his announcement on Instagram alongside a picture of both the scripts of Disenchanted (Enchanted 2) and Hocus Pocus 2

"I feel incredibly honored and humbled to be guiding forward these two Disney crown jewel legacies." Shankman gushed in his post.
