Additionally, pop star Rita Ora, 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) have also joined musical fairytale sequel. The new cast members will be joining previously announced Descendants alums who will be returning for the film, including China Anne McClain as Uma, Kylie Cantrall as Red, Dara Reneé as Ulyana, and Melanie Paxson as the Fairy Godmother.

The Pocketwatch will feature Red and Chloe crossing paths at a momentous celebration in Auradon when unexpected chaos breaks out,” reads the synopsis. “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.”

The full character descriptions of the new cast are listed below:

  • Brandy – Cinderella, the classic Disney character, who is elegant, warm, good-hearted, and diplomatic.
  • Rita Ora – the withholding, tyrannical Queen of Hearts, who rules over the kingdom of Wonderland with an iron fist.
  • Kylie Cantrall – Red, the rebellious 16-year-old daughter of the Queen of Hearts. Red knows she’ll never get the Queen’s approval, so she finds ways to provoke her mother and stir up trouble.
  • Malia Baker – Chloe, the cheerful 16-year-old daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming, who is book smart and athletic, but her privilege makes her somewhat naive about the real world.
  • China Anne McClain – Uma, daughter of the infamous sea-witch Ursula, a role she previously played in Descendants 2 and 3. Strong and fierce, Uma always fights for what she thinks is right.
  • Dara Reneé – Ulyana, the younger sister of Ursula. She’s a teen sea witch and mean-girl bully with eight wicked tentacles and a crew of lackeys.
  • Ruby Rose Turner – Bridget/Young Queen of Hearts, who is sweet-natured, bubbly, generous, and the complete opposite of her grown-up self.
  • Morgan Dudley – Ella/Young Cinderella, who is blunt, pragmatic, and has a bit of a chip on her shoulder about being forced to work for her wicked stepmother.
  • Joshua Colley – Hook, one of Ulyana’s sycophants, a rich kid with a hoop earring and a shiny hook where his left hand should be. His arrogance is only surpassed by his vanity.
  • Melanie Paxson returns as Fairy Godmother, the wise and kind headmistress of Auradon Prep.
