It looks like there are still many more ways to be wicked when it comes to the third installment of Disney Channel’s Descendants franchise. While it seemed as though Mal’s dad would be playing a major character, and perhaps the main villain, in the new movie, we now know that there are definitely two baddies from the Bayou on their way to Auradon to rouse up some trouble. EW exclusively reported that Jamal Sims (below) and Jadah Marie have officially joined the cast as The Princess and the Frog’s voodoo troublemaker Dr. Facilier and his daughter Celia.
In addition to his villainous role, Sims will also serve as a choreographer for the film alongside director Kenny Ortega. The two join a returning cast of Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, China Anne McClain, Mitchell Hope, Thomas Doherty, Dylan Playfair, and Anna Cathcart who are all reprising their roles from the first two films. The film is expected to premiere sometime next summer.

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’.
