Under the Sea: A Descendants Story is Coming to Disney Channel...

Written by

Perhaps it was a bit of foreshadowing, but at San Diego Comic-Con International last month, there was a display in the Hasbro booth that showed two dolls from their Disney Descendants collection suspended in an underwater scene behind glass. There was a note to make it clear that this was solely an artistic representation - not a playset for sale, but the underwater adventure was being shared by Mal and Uma. Now comes the surprise news that on September 28, Disney Channel with air Under the Sea: A Descendants Story - an all-new short film featuring those very characters. Check out a teaser below!

From the Official Announcement: "Descendants" arch-nemeses Mal and Uma will face-off in an epic underwater showdown when "Under the Sea: A Descendants Story" premieres FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 28 (7:50-8:00 p.m. EDT/PDT), on Disney Channel. Dove Cameron and China Anne McClain reprise their roles as fan-favorite characters Mal and Uma, respectively, in this live-action short-form special filled with dazzling visual effects and high-energy music and dance. Immediately following the Disney Channel premiere, "Under the Sea: A Descendants Story" will be available on the DisneyNOW app and Disney Channel VOD. 

In the story, Mal emerges from the shadows of a mystical forest onto a dark coastline where she crosses paths with Dizzy, played by Anna Cathcart. "Descendants 2" stars Thomas Doherty and Dylan Playfair will appear in their roles of Harry and Gil, respectively, as part of Uma's wicked pirate gang.

P.S. - Here's that Hasbro display from SDCC...
