Wait, What is Happening in This First Look Photo for Descendants 2?

Okay, Descenders.  There is no time for niceties; we need to get right to this news. Disney Channel just released a first look image for Descendants 2, and it has so many little details that we need to talk about.  Here it is:


We have many, many thoughts. Here they are in no particular order:

  1. Carlos (Cameron Boyce) has new hair.
  2. Obsessed with Evie (Sofia Carson)’s braid and choker.
  3. Is Jay (Booboo Stewart) wearing velvet pants?
  4. Mal is rockin’ that fringe.
  5. The floor is very shiny.
    1. Is he evil? Impossible.
    2. So he must be undercover, right?
    3. Maybe he’s just sporting a new look?

This synopsis might provide a clue:

The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit “Descendants,” as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon. When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town.  Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.

And director Kenny Ortega sheds even more light on the mystery: “”When Ben realizes Mal has left Auradon, he decides to go after her. Mal’s friends — Carlos, Evie and Jay — decide to go with him to help, but first they have to teach him their wicked ways so he can sneak around the Isle of the Lost without being recognized.”

Intrigue! Okay, just for fun we’ve put the first image from the first Descendants on top of the new one to show how different (and more grown up) everyone looks. Slide or drag over the images to compare:
