Disney animator Tom Sito compared the film's box office performance to that of The Great Mouse Detectivewhich was a step up from the theatrical run of the box office bomb The Black Cauldron.

No extra ticket charge! No frantic frenzies of meaningless action! This is what classic animation once was like! As he flips over each tarot card, he persuades her that the killer will continue coming after her and she can trust no one but herself to decide her own fate, as even Roni's promise to protect her is not guaranteed because Henry is her primary concern.
Samdi offers her a magic bean to escape to another realm, but it requires her sister Anastasia 's magic and she can either sacrifice her sister to save herself or let her sister die under Gothel's control. Ivy questions how she is even supposed to find Anastasia after days of searching for her with no success and Samdi provides a facedown card, telling her it will bring Anastasia to her.
She then flips the card over to look at it, which has a picture of Anastasia with the lit lanterns that she and her sister once bonded over as children. Little does Ivy know, the tarot reading Samdi gave her was not completely true and Anastasia was never fated to die, and Samdi lied to her in order to siphon some of Anastasia's magic for his own purposes. He prepares to perform the rest of the ritual, which Ivy believes involves having to kill Anastasia, but Gothel interrupts them by waking up the girl.
As Anastasia's wrath gives way to a storm, Samdi advises Ivy to do what she must do before he flees. Later after Ivy and Anastasia reconcile and leave for another realmRoni returns to her bar to find Samdi waiting for her.
She is upset at him for preying on Ivy, but he states he simply did what he had to and got what he wanted. He shows her the bottle of Anastasia's magic and explains he left Ivy with her sister so they could work out their differences just as the cards told him they would. Sensing Weaver has convinced her that he is up to no good, he reveals Anastasia was never going to die and he just needed some of her magic. He surprises Roni by giving her the bottled magic and insists she uses it to find a way to save Henry.
Roni asks what is the price for his gift, and Samdi assures her that her beautiful smile is all he wants.
However, what Samdi doesn't tell Roni is that he pocketed some of the magic for himself. Upon leaving the bar to get to his car, Samdi is confronted by Weaver, who warns him against attempting to get his dagger or suffer the same fate as those who have tried. Samdi cautions that Weaver's actions will only serve to keep him apart from Belle. In turn, Weaver insists if Samdi interferes with his family, he will find a loophole to end him for good. Samdi comes to the food truck while Sabine is away getting her "secret ingredient" to add to her beignet batter mix and intimidates Drew into fulfilling the debt he still owes him.
That night, Drew gives him a freshly baked beignet he made himself, though he doesn't understand why the witch doctor specifically wanted one from him when he could've gotten one from Sabine. Samdi explains Sabine trusted Drew enough to teach him how to make the beignets, and that while trust is a powerful thing, breaking that trust is even more so.
As Samdi takes the beignet out and taps some of its sprinkled sugar onto a voodoo dollseemingly imbuing it with magic, Drew insists he doesn't care what Samdi is up to as long as their ties are severed now that his debt to him is fulfilled. Samdi disagrees, stating they are done when he says so and warns him against having to remind him again. Later, Samdi visits Nick in the interrogation room after his arrest and reveals himself as the one who woke Nick up in the first place, in the hopes he would get rid of Gothel.
Nick wants another chance to kill Gothel, but Samdi laments that the opportunity has passed since he was caught by the police and now he is too much of a wild card that he needs to be taken out of the deck. Pricking the voodoo doll, Samdi kills Nick, causing him to have severe chest pains until he collapses dead over the table.
