Catch China Anne McClain’s Wicked Cameo in New ‘Descendants 2’ Promo
Disney released a new promo for the upcoming sequel to their hit TV movie Descendants, featuring a quick glimpse of China Anne McClain’s new villain in action.
China joins the cast of the live-action films for the first time, but she’s no stranger to the Descendants world. The 18-year-old actress also voices Freddie Facilier in Descendants: Wicked World, the movie’s animated counterpart.
“The Isle of the Lost is an island that houses the most infamous villains, so it seemed natural for a pirate gang including the offspring of Ursula, Captain Hook and Gaston to emerge as we take audiences deeper into the Descendants world,” director Kenny Ortega previously said.
The sequel will follow Mal, daughter of Maleficent, as she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost after the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for her. When she gets there, she learns that her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma still has a chip on her shoulder over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, and in retaliation, she encourages 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.
“As our rich story unfolds, Uma, the daughter of the sea witch Ursula, proves that she’s a force to be reckoned with as the leader of a pirate gang and the new self-proclaimed queen of the Isle,” Ortega added.
Descendants 2 sees the return of original cast members 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 Ben (Mitchell Hope), son of Belle and the Beast.
Uma has a quick blink-and-you’ll-miss-it cameo in the new look at the characters from the film:
