Are you as excited as I am? Because this week is Descendants 2 release week! That means we finally get to see how the villain kids have adapted themselves to living in sweet, beautiful Auradon in comparison to the dark and rotten Isle of the Lost. And, of course, if Mal and Ben have kissed yet. Because let’s face it, it was a massive disappointment when they were so close at the end of the movie and I still believe that should have been the bang on which the movie could have ended nicely.
So maybe we will have more luck in Descendants 2!
But I must warn you because there is a new ship (pun intended) on the horizon. Well actually more than one, but I’ll get back to that in a minute. The confirmed bad guys for Descendants 2 are non-other than Uma, daughter of Ursula and her most loyal gang members Gil, son of Gaston and Harry, son of Captain Hook. It took an awfully long time before we could hear Gil speak. As matter of fact, the only time when he did talk was in the behind the scenes video (Click here to see), but we never heard his voice in a trailer. Harry, on the other hand, has been featured in most of the trailers. Can’t blame the makers, because from what I can tell he seems like an interesting character. Now back to the ship I was talking about. Although it’s not yet confirmed, and it might not be until the movie comes out, but there is some kind of chemistry between Uma and Harry and it is really good! For example in the behind the scenes video for the What’s My Name music video we get to see an extension of a scene that wasn’t in the eventual video. And in that scene, there might be a deeper connection between Uma and Harry. But also the way Uma winks at him in the What’s My Name music video and the way he looks at her at the beginning of that video makes me believe that we have found the next big ship of this fandom. But also in Auradon love blooms more than ever. In the behind the scenes video we get our first glimpse of something beautiful between Carlos and Jane.
Next to all this new love developing, the villain kids will experience their next adventure. Here is what Disney Channel has to say about that:
“When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula from The Little Mermaid, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle once and for all.”
