When Mal and the gang return for Descendants 2 in 2017, they’ll be sporting some bold new fashions.
The Disney Channel original movie’s core crew — that’d be Mal (Dove Cameron), daughter of Maleficent; Evie (Sofia Carson), daughter of the Evil Queen; Jay (Booboo Stewart), son of Jafar; Carlos (Cameron Boyce), son of Cruella de Vil; and now Ben (Mitchell Hope), son of Belle and the Beast — got a major hair-and-wardrobe update for the highly anticipated sequel, as seen in the photo above.
When we last saw the Descendants, they were celebrating their decision to be good, rather than follow in their evil parents’ footsteps. Of course, a final-moment flash of darkness in Mal’s eyes had fans wondering if their might be more to her story.
“It was a bookend,” director Kenny Ortega told TVLine of the final shot. “We begin with Mal welcoming us into her story, and Mal’s story isn’t over — there’s a bigger story. Whether we get to do a sequel or not, that’s in the hands of the audience, but Mal’s story is definitely bigger.”
Little is known about the plot of Descendants 2, though Disney Channel has announced several new additions to the cast in recent weeks: China Anne McClain (A.N.T. Farm) will play Uma, daughter of Ursula; Thomas Doherty will play Harry, son of Captain Hook; and Dylan Playfair will play Gil, son of Gaston.
Thus far, all we’ve seen is this little teaser video, featuring Uma and her wicked li’l laugh:
