Disney Channel Developing ‘Descendants’ Sequel
The reformed rotten to the core quartet will be back, thanks to an announcement from Disney confirming that a Descendants sequel is in the works.
Descendants, starring Dove Cameron (Mal), Cameron Boyce (Carlos), Booboo Stewart (Jay) and Sofia Carson (Evie), premiered on Disney channel in July and is currently cable television’s fifth highest-rated movie of all-time.
“By almost every measure – domestically and globally – Descendants has already become one of the biggest entertainment properties of the year, and we’re eager to delve deeper into the unfolding mythology of Auradon and Isle of the Lost,” said Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide in a statment. “This kind of compelling, innovative storytelling, alongside our animated Descendants: Wicked World shorts and unique transmedia campaign, continues to lay the groundwork for multiple franchise opportunities across virtually every line of business at The Walt Disney Company.”
