A whole bunch of exciting Descendants 2 news just got dropped on us, and we're sure you'll be thrilled about it all! First off, Disney announced that production on the movie sequel is starting this summer, and the finished film is expected to premiere some time in 2017.
Actors Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Booboo Stewart, Sofia Carson, and Mitchell Hope will all be in the second movie, reprising their starring roles as some of your fave characters: Mal, Carlos, Jay, Evie and King Ben, respectively. But in addition to that, China McClain will also be joining the cast as Uma, the daughter of Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
More new characters are coming soon too: casting will still be announced for the kids of villains Captain Hook from Peter Pan and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast – and we know those are going to be great too!
Judging by Twitter, the cast is already as excited about production on Descendants 2 as we are.
