Disney Channel has just announced the sequel to Descendants, last year’s delightful DCOM about the children of Villains, which we absolutely loved. (It also happens to be the #1 cable TV movie of 2015 so we know you guys loved it too.) Descendants 2 will begin filming this summer to be released in 2017; here’s what we’ve learned about the sequel so far:
- Kenny Ortega is returning as the DCOM’s director, executive producer, and (our favorite) choreographer.
- Dove Cameron (Mal), Cameron Boyce (Carlos), Sofia Carson (Evie), and Booboo Stewart (Jay) will all reprise their roles, thank goodness!
- There’s going to be a new VK! Uma, Ursula’s daughter, will be played by China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm).
- Yet to be cast are the children of Gaston and Captain Hook.
- All-around cutie and newly coronated King Ben will also be back, with Mitchell Hope reprising his role.
According to Disney Channel president and chief creative officer Gary Marsh, “Just when you thought ‘Happily Ever After’ had come to the land of Auradon, Descendants 2 turns the page to reveal a whole new level of mystery and surprise.”
We can’t wait to go back to Auradon!
