If you have a ‘Decendants’ obsessed person at your house get ready because there’s going to be another film in this universe called “The Pocketwatch.” This sequel film has been announced for Disney+ and will reportedly focus on Wonderland from ‘Alice in Wonderland.’
Previously we were introduced to the Kingdom of Auradon and the Isle of the Lost, but in this film we will be taken to familiar realms and now Wonderland.
“The Pocketwatch returns to these lands and also takes audiences through the rabbit hole to the hostile unincorporated territory of Wonderland, a magical, mysterious place made famous in Alice in Wonderland.”
New characters will include Red, the daughter of the Queen of Hearts and Chloe who is the daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming.
“In order to prevent an impending coup in Auradon – one that looms during the celebration of a new royal baby –, Red must join forces with Chloe to travel in back in time, via the White Rabbit’s pocket watch, to stop an event that would lead to grave consequences.”
The new film will be directed and co-executive produced by Jennifer Phang with a script by Dan Frey and Russell Sommer. There will also be seven new songs and Disney classic songs.
Also returning to Descendants is Gary Marsh as an executive producer and Mark Hofeling as the production designer.
It does seem like we are going to look at some culturally different cultural dynamics in this one according to the director:
“Regarding directing the upcoming movie, The Pocketwatch presents a delightful canvas with fantastical world building. Musicals sparked my imagination when I was a kid and are a huge part of what drew me to filmmaking. I think that’s because they have a way of conveying these lovely, nuanced ideas through song and expressive movement. I’m also always inspired by the diversity of families that exist all around the world. So I really jumped at the chance to craft a supercharged musical experience and explore some new, invigorating themes inside an expansive Disney universe.”
Production is set to begin this fall.
