The Villain Kids return to the small screen as Descendants 3 premieres on Disney Channel August 2.
High School Musical’s Kenny Ortega returns to direct the latest installment, starring recent Off-Broadway alum and The Light in the Piazza star Dove Cameron. Broadway vet Cheyenne Jackson joins the franchise to play Hades.
The sequel follows the VKs—the offspring of infamous Disney villains—who return to their birthplace (the Isle of the Lost) to recruit four fellow kids, bringing them back to the more idyllic Auradon City and the coveted boarding school Auradon Prep.
