In order to prevent an impending coup in Auradon – one that looms during the celebration of a new royal baby – Red, the whip-smart and rebellious teenage daughter of the Queen of Hearts, must join forces with Chloe, the perfectionist and athletic daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming, to travel in back in time, via the White Rabbit’s pocket watch, to the hostile unincorporated territory of Wonderland to stop an event that would lead to grave consequences.
In addition to some of Disney’s classic songs, the film will include seven new songs. Jennifer Phang is set to direct and co-executive produce the film. It is unknown if characters from the Descendants franchise will appear, but the idea is that they will in some capacity. Casting is currently underway.
