‘Descendants 3’ is bringing back an original cast member from the first movie

Disney Channel’s Descendants 3 is bringing back a few more familiar faces for the next installment of the villainous musical movie!

Fans of the Disney Channel original movie, The Descendants, flipped earlier this year when we learned that via a surprise teaser trailer that the network had officially given the green light to a third installment of the series.

We’ve known for a while that a lot of the original cast members would be returning to reprise their roles as the daughters and sons of some of Disney’s most iconic villains.

Now, it looks like Descendants fans can look forward to seeing a few more familiar faces among the bunch!

According to Deadline, actors Sarah Jefferey, Thomas Doherty, and Dylan Playfair will all be returning to reprise their roles for the third move.

Jeffrey should be of particular interest to fans of the DCOM trilogy— especially given that we didn’t see her in Descendants 2.

The actress played Audrey, daughter of Sleeping Beauty herself Princess Aurora, in the original Descendants movie. Though Audrey was mentioned in passing during the sequel, she wasn’t actually featured. With that in mind, we’re sure fans will be interested to find out more about what her character will be up to in the third installment of the musical movies.

Meanwhile, both Doherty and Playfair will be retuning to reprise their roles as Harry and Gil. For those who need a bit of a refresher, Harry and Gil serve as two of Uma’s crew members on her pirate ship. Uma (played by China Anne McClain) also happens to be the daughter of none other than the evil sea witch Ursula.

Directed by High School Musical helmer Kenny Ortega, the next installment in the Descendants trilogy will find Mal (Dove Cameron) learning more about who her mysterious father is.

Descendants 3 is set to begin production next month and will premiere on the Disney Chanel sometime in 2019.
