“You didn’t think this was the end of the story, did you?”
This line, just like in the first movie, ended Descendants 2 with Uma (China Anne McClain) emerging from the water and uttered those magical words. This line brought hope to many Descendants fans all over the world and it was confirmed by Disney Channel that Descendants 3 is happening.
With the plot not yet announced, we can be sure it will feature Mal’s father as we have been given a small teaser trailer.
Watch the teaser trailer below:
Although there is no exact premiere date set yet, it has been confirmed that the third film will arrive in Summer 2019. But if I had to guess, it will probably air in the US in July as the previous movies aired then.
Descendants 2 has been viewed over 71.5 million times across 159 countries, with the soundtrack landing in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 chart.
All the original cast will be returning, meaning we will see the former villains we know and love: Dove Cameron (Mal), Cameron Boyce (Carlos), Sofia Carson (Evie), Booboo Stewart (Jay) and Mitchell Hope (Ben). Also returning is China Anne McClain as Uma.
As much as I will love having new characters, there are a few others who could potentially come back like: Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad Charming, Dianne Doan as Lonnie and Zachary Gibson as Doug. Lets not forget the character who were introduced in the sequel: Thomas Doherty as Harry Hook, Anna Cathcart as Dizzy and Dylan Playfair as Gil.
Having new characters would also be amazing and there are so many I would love to see. Obviously, we will be introduced to Mal’s father as he was featured in the teaser trailer. Hopefully, the parents from the fist movie will come back, fingers crossed. As a lover of the animated mini-series ‘Descendants: Wicked World, there are many characters that I really want to see appear in the threequel. Genie’s daughter Jordan and Captain Hook’s daughter CJ Hook are two of the characters I would love to be featured.
Production will begin in Vancouver, Canada on May 16, 2018.
I am currently working on a post about what I would love to see in Descendants 3, which will posted this weekend.
Until then, thank you for reading.
