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…

As fan fervor for Disney’s DESCENDANTS grows around the world, a sequel script has been commissioned from the movie’s screenwriters Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon who will also serve as executive producers on the project, DESCENDANTS 2 (working title), it was announced today by Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide. DESCENDANTS is cable television’s fifth highest-rated movie of all-time.

“By almost every measure – domestically and globally – DESCENDANTS has already become one of the biggest entertainment properties of the year and we’re eager to delve deeper into the unfolding mythology of Auradon and Isle of the Lost. This kind of compelling, innovative storytelling, alongside our animated DESCENDANTS: WICKED WORLD shorts and unique transmedia campaign, continues to lay the groundwork for multiple franchise opportunities across virtually every line of business at The Walt Disney Company.”Gary Marsh

On Saturday, October 17, the stars of Disney’s “Descendants” including Dove Cameron (Disney Channel’s “Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (Disney XD’s “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” Disney Channel’s “Jessie”), Booboo Stewart (“X-Men Days of Future Past”) and Sofia Carson, and Kenny Ortega will celebrate with fans during an onstage, music and dance-filled event at Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California.

This is one of those moments where I feel the urge to put the “acting cap” back on and hire a new agent. I wonder if there’d be a place for “The Rock Father” in Auradon? Actually, I’d probably be better-suited as a villain on the Isle of the Lost…
