What will ‘Descendants 3’ be about?
Even though plot details have been kept tightly under wraps, we do have a bit of insight as to what we can expect to happen in the third movie. That’s right, you guys! This time around, the Villain Kids will make their return to the Isle of the Lost to “recruit a new batch of villainous offspring to join them at Auradon Prep.”
While they’re gone recruiting new villains, though, Mal decides to permanently close the barrier, as she fears that her nemeses will try and wreak havoc on the kingdom in their absence. Still, the people of Auradon find themselves in grave danger, and as usual, it’s up to the Villain Kids to save everyone and bring the kingdom back to safety.
In addition to that, the original trailer also leads us to believe that we will finally solve the big mystery about who Mal’s dad is in this movie. Plus, when Cameron stopped by Hollywire, he spilled a little tea on what fans can expect to see in the upcoming DCOM.
“In the third one especially, we, I think, make political statements. There’s some really interesting stuff that we sort of bring together,” he said. “There’s stuff going on in our world now and there’s stuff going on in the Descendants world that I think mirror each other a little bit and I’m really proud to present that to kids in a way they can understand it. Bright colors, loud dancing, but there’s a message, nonetheless.”
And that’s not all he’s got in mind for the third movie. “I want the barrier to come down on the Isle so the parents come to Auradon and we have an epic duel between the kids and the parents. That would be ideal. That’s my dream,” he told Teen Vogue.
Talking to Movie Maniacs, he also said, “I picture [Carlos] in the third movie as sort of like the guy with like 18 computers all of a sudden and doing all of the planning. I picture Carlos as a really pivotal part of the group and sort of a component that can’t be replaced in the group,”
Okay Cam, we are so here for this. Not to mention that Sarah Jeffery, who played Audrey in the first film but didn’t appear in the second, is back for D3 and gave us a little tidbit of info too.
“There is very little I can say about my role in Descendants 3 without giving it away, but I will say that I think people will be pleasantly surprised with Audrey’s return,” she said to TVInsider. “In addition to that, the scope of this film is pretty massive, it’s visually beautiful, the music and dancing in it have leveled up yet again… and we have such a wonderful, talented cast, I think people will be really stoked when they see it.”
And that’s not all because Sofia dished on the third movie too. While speaking to Movie Maniacs, she said, “I would love a Descendants 3 but Evie out of the four VKs, maybe Evie and Carlos, she was never really that mean, her evil characteristic was being vain. You’ve never really seen a wicked side of Evie. So I don’t know if in Descendants 3 something happens, either she goes under some spell and we see a truly wicked side of Evie and she becomes kind of villainous and poisoning apples for real,” the actress said.
OK, now that would be really interesting to see since she feels right at home un Auradon. As for Booboo’s plot thoughts? He’s ready for the OG villains to make their comeback.
“I do think there’s a lot to explore. I would love to see our parents again, I think that would be very, very, very cool and would create a lot of drama there,” he said to Movie Manaics about what he would like to see happen in the next installment.
Plus, Dove’s got some ideas about what she would personally like to see go down with Mal in the third movie.
“In the third one, I think I would like to see [Mal] really, truly fledge herself out as an individual and kind of unlock this weird limitless, chosen one power she has threw being the most evil’s daughter. Because I really do think that’s an incredible combination to take the power of the most evil person but the heart of a good human and couple those things together. I want her to become her own individual. And I really don’t care about the love story! It’s a beautiful thing that adds to it and I love romance but I would really love for her to Mulan her way in the third film and just became this amazing, limitless entity,” Dove said in an interview with Movie Maniacs.
