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!

Two years  ago, I had the unique honor of sitting in a theater in Burbank with Director/Choreographer Kenny Ortega to watch Disney's DESCENDANTS before its official premiere, and before it became a phenomenon. From the moment the kids first walked out singing "Rotten to the Core," I new Descendants would be huge, and now the crew is back! As announced earlier this week, Descendants 2 premieres FRIDAY, JULY 21 (8:00 p.m. ET/PT) on five networks – Disney Channel, ABC, Freeform, Disney XD and Lifetime! Check out the trailer below, along with the new music video, "Ways to Be Wicked!"

Last October, Disney made it official that a sequel to their summer hit, DESCENDANTS, was in-development for a 2017 release. Today comes word that all the pieces are in-place, and DESCENDANTS 2 has a greenlight to start production! "Just when you thought 'Happily Ever After' had come to the land of Auradon, 'Descendants 2' turns the page to reveal a whole new level of mystery and surprise," said Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, alluding to the fact that DESCENDANTS 2 will bring the offspring of some additional classic baddies to life, with the children of Captain Hook, Ursula and Gaston set to arrive.

Disney's DESCENDANTS (review here) has been a massive hit here at Rock Father HQ - from the Disney Channel original film itself, to the fashions inspired by the cast. I was lucky enough to have visited with filmmaker/choreographer Kenny Ortega (HOCUS POCUS) this summer, and I had a chance to catch up with both Dove Cameron (Mal, daughter of Maleficent) and Cameron Boyce (Carlos, son of Cruella de Vil) on the sets of LIV & MADDIE and GAMER'S GUIDE TO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING, respectively. My girls (and many of their friends) are DESCENDANTS-obsessed, and today comes rock-solid proof (after a light announcement at the D23 Expo) that DESCENDANTS 2 is happening. Here's the official word...
