First Look at China McClain, Thomas Doherty & Dylan Playfair in “Descendants 2”

descendants2-piratesIn September, we got our first look at our favorite villain kids in “Descendants 2” and now we have a sneak peek of the new cast!

China Anne McClain, Thomas Doherty & Dylan Playfair join “Descendants 2 as Uma (daughter of Ursula), Harry (son of Captain Hook) and Gil (son of Gaston) and the first image of the trio in character and their pirate garb has hit the web thanks to Entertainment Weekly. In “Descendants 2,” teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains – Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) – try to find their place in idyllic Auradon. When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.

We honestly can’t wait to see these three in the movie. Is it 2017 yet?

If you can’t wait until 2017 to see the cast of “Descendants,” you’re in luck because they’ll be hitting your TV this holiday season.
