The third movie in Disney Channel’s Descendants saga has added its final cast member — and you’re not going to like him when he’s angry.
Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story) has joined Descendants 3 as Hades, the ruler of the Underworld from the 1997 Disney musical Hercules — and, you know, Greek mythology. Though the network’s announcement didn’t confirm that Hades is the father of Mal (played by Dove Cameron), the pieces begin to fit together when you re-watch the movie’s official teaser with this new casting information in mind.
Slated for a Summer 2019 release, Descendants 3 will star returning favorites Dove Cameron as Mal, daughter of Sleeping Beauty‘s Maleficent; Sofia Carson as Evie, daughter of Snow White‘s Evil Queen; Cameron Boyce as Carlos, son of 101 Dalmations‘ Cruella de Vil; and Booboo Stewart as Jay, son of Aladdin‘s Jafar. Also coming back: Thomas Doherty as Harry, son of Peter Pan‘s Captain Hook; Dylan Playfair as Gil, son of Beauty and the Beast‘s Gaston; Anna Cathcart as Dizzy, daughter of Cinderella‘s Drizella; and China Anne McClain as Uma, daughter of The Little Mermaid‘s Ursula.
And be on the lookout for some familiar “good” guys: Mitchell Hope as Ben, son of Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle and Adam; Sarah Jeffrey as Audrey, daughter of Sleeping Beauty‘s Aurora; Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad, son of Cinderella and Prince Charming; Brenna D’Amico as the daughter of Cinderella‘s Fairy Godmother; and Zachary Gibson as Doug, son of Snow White‘s Dopey.
In addition to the returning characters, Descendants 3 will introduce Jamal Sims as The Princess and the Frog‘s Dr. Facilier, as well as Jadah Marie as Celia, his daughter.
