New ‘Under the Sea: A Descendants Story’ Special Coming Next Month


Last night Disney teased that there will be a short 10 minute special next month called Under the Sea: A Descendants Story.  I just told my ten year old daughter and she’s thrilled!

Apparently this is going to take place after the events of Descendants 2, when Uma was swimming away and indicated that it wasn’t the end of the story.

Now Uma and Mal will have “an epic underwater showdown” in the new short.

According to Entertainment Weekly there will be “dazzling visual effects and high energy music and dance numbers.”
