Disney+ Expands the Descendants Universe with Movie Musical The Pocketwatch

Disney+ is officially taking fans down the rabbit hole. The Disney streaming service is expanding the Descendants universe with movie musical The Pocketwatch.

In the film, director Jennifer Phang, executive producer Gary Marsh, and writers Dan Frey and Russell Sommer are taking viewers back to Auradon and down the rabbit hole to the hostile territory of Wonderland. There we will meet Red—the unruly daughter of the Queen of Hearts, who will reluctantly join forces with Chloe (daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming) and travel back in time using the White Rabbit’s pocket watch to prevent an impending coup in Auradon.

The world of Descendants has opened the door for endless opportunities to revisit favorite Disney stories in new ways. Jennifer Rogers Doyle (Senior Vice President, Franchise and Integrated Planning, Networks, Disney Media Entertainment and Distribution) is thrilled for fans to meet Red and Chloe in this chapter of the Descendants story, which has “tapped into what parents and kids love—a contemporary story with familiarity.”

The Pocketwatch will feature seven new songs, along with a few Disney classics. “With a captivating script and Jennifer Phang’s directorial vision, we’re setting a new high bar of creativity and imagination, with a movie that ups the ante on story, song, and dance to entertain young viewers, their families, and the global fan base that grew up with the aspirational story of Descendants,” said Ayo Davis, president, Disney Branded Television.
