Also joining Jackson as newcomers to the cast are Jadah Marie as Dr. Facilier’s daughter Celia, Jamal Sims as Dr. Facilier, and Christian Convery and Luke Roessler as Smee’s sons Squeaky and Squirmy.
We can’t wait to see them join the returning cast of VKs: Dove Cameron as Maleficent’s daughter Mal, Cameron Boyce as Cruella de Vil’s son Carlos, Sofia Carson as the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie, Booboo Stewart as Jafar’s son Jay, China Anne McClain as Ursula’s daughter Uma, Thomas Doherty as Captain Hook’s son Harry, Dylan Playfair as Gaston’s son Gil, and Anna Cathcart as Drizella’s daughter Dizzy.
Here’s a pic of the big, happy family posing with the legendary director, executive producer, and choreographer Kenny Ortega:
