First Look At Cheyenne Jackson As Hades in Descendants 3

Descendants 3 Hades

We’re finally getting a glimpse of the newest character coming to the Descendants franchise.  Cheyenne Jackson (American Horror Story, 30 Rock) was cast in Descendants 3 as Hades, God of the Underworld, from the animated film Hercules.  Now, we are getting a look at what his character will look like in the movie.

Jackson will star as the “hot-headed” villain this summer when the movie debuts on the Disney Channel.  We can see that Hades channeling an 80’s rocker look, with a punk ‘blue flame’ hairdo and studded leather jacket.  I’m definitely getting a Billy Idol vibe.

When asked about his role, Jackson said, “I had no idea what a global juggernaut this movie is until I got the role. My friends with older kids freaked out when I told them. It’s incredible to be a part of this fantasy world.”

Descendants 3 was announced to fans with a teaser during the debut of the Disney Channel Movie ‘Zombies‘.  In the clip, it eluded to the fact that Mal’s father will be revealed to us in the new film.  Ever since fans have been scouring the internet for clues as to who the mystery (presumable villain) might be.  Could it be Hades?  I can’t wait to find out!
