Descendants 2 Is Coming — And Another Disney Channel Star Is Joining The Dove Cameron Sequel!

We’re not saying Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo to this news!

While it’s been a few years since Disney Channel cast a spell on cable television with original movies like High School Musical and Camp Rock, the House of Mouse managed to recreate that magic in 2015 thanks to Descendants.

That’s why it should come as no surprise that the network officially picked up a sequel to the origin story on Friday morning!

Descendants 2 will begin production this Summer for a 2017 release and will see the return of Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, and Mitchell Hope as the offspring of Disney’s greatest heroes and villains.

However, they won’t be alone… because it was also just announced that A.N.T. Farm‘s China Anne McClain will be joining the cast as Ursula’s daughter Uma!

Disney Channels Worldwide President and CCO Gary Marsh issued a brief statement about the DCOM on Friday, saying:

“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.”

So mysterious!

What’s most interesting about the casting news, however, is that China actually plays Dr. Facilier’s daughter Freddie from The Princess and The Frog in the animated spinoff Descendants: Wicked World… but we guess that movie wasn’t popular enough to get the live action treatment!

Which Disney Channel stars do U want to see as Captain Hook and Gaston’s kids in Descendants 2??
