After what feels like forever, Descendants 2 finally made its way to our television screens and we can totally admit it was worth the wait. Seriously, the music is next level, those dance numbers are insane (hello Cameron Boyce doing a mid-air split IN WATER) and the new characters Uma, Harry, and Gil fit perfectly in this new chapter of the series. Obviously, everyone wants to know now if and when a Descendants 3 movie is happening and based on that final scene we're going to go with YES.
Spoiler alert: at the end of the movie, we see Uma herself still in the water with her tentacles and all giving us major Ursula from the end of The Little Mermaid vibes so yeah, she's just like her mom! But she then looks into the camera and delivers the line, "You didn't think this was the end of the story, did you?"
And as any fan knows, this is the same line Mal said at the end of the first movie when she looked right at the audience over Ben's shoulder, a hint of green flickering in her eyes letting us know D2 was going to happen.
Since Uma uttered those same few words again, it's safe to say that this story is clearly not over and that little cliffhanger scene wasn't in the original version of the script, but was added later on. So that's saying something there! And the cast is totally down to keep this series going too. When we spoke to Uma herself China Anne McClain, we just had to ask her about this mysterious final scene and while she played coy since as of right now there hasn't been an official word from Disney about another movie yet, she admitted she would be so ready to come back.
"Descendants is so great and I really loved playing Uma. I really hope that in the future, since I know this is not the last time you’re going to see the VKs, I really hope that I’m involved," China exclusively said to J-14. "Every time Disney asks me to do something, I’m like 'Yeah!' That’s my family. They’ve done such great things for my career and I’m very grateful for that. Anytime they want me, they can just call."
OK, so she believes in her heart the core Villain Kids Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos' journey isn't over yet and she will be there ready to bring Uma back to Auradon to wreak even more havoc. There's still plenty of unfinished business with Uma at the end of this movie too since she's out at sea being a literal sea witch like her mom, still rather bitter she didn't get her way. So let's hope there is another film that solves all of this unfinished business! Someone else who wants to make it happen too? Dove Cameron. The actress told Access Hollywood on the red carpet that will make as many of these movies as she can.
"Oh yeah, I was to see Descendants 3, 4, 5, 6. All of it. Bring it on!" Dove said. And Cameron said he is down to come back too, despite that he's ready to move on from his Disney days.
"My tenure has been abnormally long for the average Disney kid – most only last three or four years. I’ve been around the Disney Channel for seven years, so this has been on the horizon for a while. And even now I can’t say for sure that I’m out after the uproar from Descendants fans insisting on a Descendants 3, so I could be in for one last ride after all," Cameron said to Vulkan Magazine. His allegiance to the series will legit be the reason why he possibly has ome more Disney Channel chapter left in his career that is a true testament as to how important these movies are not only to the fans, but to the actors who bring these beloved characters to life. Sofia Carson, the only and only Evie, added more fuel to this D3 fire when she said that it's something everyone in the cast is on board for.
"You know what, the whole cast would love for that to happen. I think it’s up to the fans, to see their reaction, if they love the second film as much we do, hopefully they’ll be a third," she said in an interview.
No joke, all of the OG stars are totally down, and the director, the legend that is Kenny Ortega admitted he already has a dream cast in mind featuring Vanessa Hudgens, who you know he worked with on High School Musical, Miley Cyrus and the Jonas Brothers.
"I would like Miley to come back and I would like Vanessa to come back. How about the Jonas Brothers could all come back and be our Lost Boys? I’m a big fan of so many of the artists that have come out of the channel and have gone on to have great careers, those that I've had an opportunity to work with and those that I haven’t had an opportunity to work with," Kenny said to People's Choice. OK Kenny is getting all of our hopes up with that one. He wants this movie to happen too, as long as the fans want it! He did admit though that he hasn't really thought all that much about a third movie. At least not yet.
"Every once in a while, I think about new characters. Or I think about the characters we already have and what their next journeys might be. But none of us are really thinking about a third movie right now. We don’t want to jump the gun. We’re waiting to see how the fans respond," Kenny said to TVLine.
Umm, okay Kenny, we already have some story ideas in mind if you need some help. We've been over here thinking about another movie so let's hope he will be too. Considering that 13 million people tuned in, making D2 the second most-watched DCOM of all time behind another one of Kenny's movies, High School Musical 2, it's safe to say everyone needs another movie in this saga. And if anything, Kenny's success with HSM is a good indication of what's to come. That series was made up of three movies with the final film being a theatrical release so perhaps that will happen again. Descendants fans are a passionate bunch so time to make it known you're all in need of D3 and it'll happen. We have a good feeling about this one.
