The second Descendants movie ended with a similar ending like the first one. A character told the audience, “You didn’t think this was the end of the story, did you?”. Shortly afterward it was confirmed that Descendants 3 is happening. The first sequel was fairly successful, and it was watched by an audience of over 8 million in the US when it premiered. The number increased to 21 million when delayed viewing was included.
The teaser for the movie has also been released. In the teaser, we can see Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos back. So far there has been no premiere date for the third film. However, Disney has confirmed that the movie will drop in summer 2019. If we take a look at the previous movies, then we can guess when the movie will drop. The first one premiered on July 31, 2015. The second movie was released two years on July 21, 2017.
We can expect the third part to be released in July 2019. The filming for Descendants 3 was finished on July 18, 2018.
The third movie will have the original cast returning. Here is the cast of the movie:
Dove Cameron as Mal, daughter of Maleficent Cameron Boyce as Carlos de Vil, son of Cruella Sofia Carson as Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen
Booboo Stewart as Jay, son of Jafar
Mitchell Hope as Ben, son of Belle and the Beast
China Anne McClain as Uma, the daughter of Ursula
Brenna D’Amico as the Fairy Godmother’s daughter Jane
Thomas Doherty as Harry Hook, son of Captain Hook
Sarah Jeffery as Princess Audrey, daughter of Princess Aurora and Prince Phillip
Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad Charming, son of Cinderella and Prince Charming
Zachary Gibson as Doug, the son of Dopey the Dwarf
Anna Cathcart as Dizzy, daughter of Drizella Tremaine
Jamal Sims as Dr. Facilier
Jadah Marie as Celia
Cheyenne Jackson as Hades.
In the second movie, we saw Mal and Uma fighting each other like a giant octopus and dragon. The movie ended with Mal being united with Ben. We also saw Uma getting away. Mal gave her spell book to the Fairy Godmother.
It is expected that in Descendants 3 we will see Mal being reunited with her unknown father. We will also see VKs in their most exciting battle yet.
