Disney Channel’s “Descendants” reboot just expanded it’s roster in the biggest way possible and we’re so pumped for the upcoming movie.
Cinderella star Brandy and Rita Ora just joined the cast of “The Pocketwatch”, a music- and dance-filled original movie sequel to the hit Descendants franchise.
Brandy will return to the role of Cinderella, which she first played in Walt Disney Television’s legendary 1997 version of Rogers and Hammerstein’s Cinderella.
Rita Ora is set to portray Queen of Hearts.
Additional cast: Malia Baker (The Babysitter’s Club), Ruby Rose Turner (Disney’s Coop and Cami Ask the World), Morgan Dudley (Jagged Little Pill on Broadway) and Joshua Colley (Senior Year). Additionally, Melanie Paxson (Dealbreakers) will reprise her role as Fairy Godmother.
Descendants movies unfurled an imaginative mythology of two new lands, idyllic Auradon and the ragtag Isle of the Lost, home to the teenage progeny of Disney’s most iconic characters and notably, its most notorious villains. Per Disney, The Pocketwatch returns to these lands and also takes audiences through the rabbit hole to the hostile unincorporated territory of Wonderland, a magical, mysterious place made famous in Alice in Wonderland.
Written by Dan Frey and Russell Sommer (Magic: The Gathering), the new story finds polar opposites Red and Chloe crossing paths at a momentous celebration in Auradon when unexpected chaos breaks out. In order to prevent an impending coup, they must join forces to travel back in time, via a magical pocket watch created by the Mad Hatter’s son, to stop an event that would lead to grave consequences.
