While I was not actually aware that the Disney Channel decided to remake Freaky Friday into a movie-musical, I sure am now that I have learned that Descendants 3 will be dropping some sort of “big reveal” during the film’s premiere this Friday, August 10th.
Thanks to a video shared on their official Instagram page, starring Uma herself China Anne McClain, fans were able to see that this is no ordinary intel. She’s seen secretly filming the announcement on her phone before vanishing. Think Blair Witch but Disney-fied.
When China does eventually begin the recorded message she warns fans that she could get in “a lot trouble for this.”
But of course, she’s going to tell us anyway!
Then someone catches her spilling such precious intel and she in turn “freaks out” and drops her phone in the water.
Fans began trying to guess what the news in question could be, from the hopefuls longing for a full trailer to the more reasonable fans who think it will be the release date. One of the more wild theories is that Descendants 3 will premiere in theaters like other DCOMs such as High School Musical 3 and Hannah Montana. You can check out the full teaser video below!
The movie recently wrapped filming in Canada so the chances of a full trailer seems pretty unlikely, but they could probably throw some sort of teaser together to get fans excited!
The official plot of Descendants 3 has been kept under wraps, but we do know thanks to Disney Channel’s teaser announcement earlier this year that Mal’s dad will be playing a huge role. Considering they brought on Cheyenne Jackson to play the role of Hades, many think that he will play into that story. In addition to Jackson, D3 has added Jadah Marie as Dr. Facilier’s daughter, Jamal Sims as Dr. Facilier, and Christian Convery and Luke Roessler as Smee’s sons, Squeaky and Squirmy. They join a returning cast of Mitchell Hope, Thomas Doherty, China Anne McClain, Dylan Playfair, and Anna Cathcart.
Freaky Friday, which is the second remake of the 1976 film, follows a mother and daughter who magically switch places are forced to see life through the eyes of each other. It stars Dolphin Tale’s Cozi Zuehlsdorff and Sing Along’s Heidi Blickenstaff. The film was remade for the first time in 2003 and starred Lindsay Lohan and Jamie Lee Curtis.
Freaky Friday premires Friday, August 10th at 8 pm EST on the Disney Channel. The Descendants news will be revealed sometime throughout its airtime!
What do you think the news will be? Let us know!
Having studied Media & Writing at James Madison University, I always knew that I wanted to do some type of creative writing, but being able to write about zombies, Starks, and superheroes on a daily basis for Fan Fest is my actual dream. While I probably shouldn’t be as proud as I am to be so similar to Nick Miller, I do hope to one day write my own “Pepperwood Chronicles’.
