With "Descendants 2" coming next year, not only the fans are excited for the release but also cast members of the fantasy movie. More magical characters and storylines are expected for the sequel.

Excited for role

British actor Thomas Doherty has expressed his excitement for being able to play the role of Captain Hook's son, Harry Hook. The 21-year-old claimed that he was challenged with playing something that is extremely different from his own personality.

"I arguably play the most evil character of them all...It's just that you get to bring such a different energy to set, because the character is so different from yourself," Doherty noted. "So when you get on set and get in costume you really can immerse yourself."

Release date and teaser

Disney earlier announced that "Descendants 2" will premiere in summer next year. A sneak peak on the second movie showed Dove Cameron saying that the sequel is better and way more fun than the first one. For her part, actress Sofia Carson explained that the movie will explore where the characters came from as it is an integral part of who they really are.

The story of "Descendants 2" revolves on the lives of the children of four Disney villains -- Maleficent's daughter Mal, Snow White's Evil Queen's daughter Evie, Aladdin's Jafar's son Jay and Cruella de Vil's little boy, Carlos. All four characters decode to travel to the Kingdom of Auradon from the Isle of the Lost so they can start brand new lives.

Global popularity

It has been two years since the Disney hit film "Descendants" was released and fans of the original movie have long been waiting for a sequel. The first release gained worldwide popularity and had high rating even in Belgium, Portugal, South Africa, Italy and Spain, among others.
