The 'Descendants' team is back with what looks like another amazing addition to the franchise! On February 15th the Disney Descendants YouTube channel posted a teaser titled 'Threat to Auradon' showing footage from the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie. Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce and BooBoo Stewart reprise their respective roles of Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay in this new installment - set to debut in the summer of 2019.
The video begins and we see Mal unlock a gate emblazoned with the text 'GET LOST' and a sign bewaring entrants of a three headed dog, seemingly styled after imagery from the Disney film Hercules.
The following clips show the cast in action scenes preparing for battle, musical sequences, and a Princess and the Frog themed location titled 'Dr. Facilier's Voo Doo Arcade.' It all ends with a close up shot of Dove Cameron's Mal with glowing green eyes. So exciting!
According to the teaser's description, the main characters unknowingly unleash a force of evil in the film and must resolve to conquer it.
Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay return to the Isle of the Lost to recruit a new batch of villainous offspring to join them at Auradon Prep. When a barrier breach jeopardizes the safety of Auradon during their departure off the Isle, Mal resolves to permanently close the barrier, fearing that nemeses Uma and Hades will wreak vengeance on the kingdom. Despite her decision, an unfathomable dark force threatens the people of Auradon, and it's up to Mal and the VKs to save everyone in their most epic battle yet.
The 'Threat to Auradon' teaser come a full year after the project was originally teased on the channel. Check out the clip from 2018 below.
Actor Cheyenne Jackson was announced to join the cast in the role of Hades and China Anne McClain will re-join the sequel reprising her role of Uma, daughter to Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
