Last year, Disney announced it is developing a brand new music- and dance-filled original movie called, “The Pocketwatch”, which will expand the fantastic world created in “Descendants,” the global entertainment megahit franchise that introduced the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most iconic classic characters and infamous villains.

The bold new story of “The Pocketwatch” will take audiences through the rabbit hole to the hostile unincorporated territory of Wonderland, a magical, mysterious place made famous in “Alice in Wonderland.”  The expansive new story introduces “Red,” the whip-smart and rebellious teenage daughter of the Queen of Hearts (“Alice in Wonderland”) and “Chloe,” the perfectionist and athletic daughter of Cinderella and Prince Charming (“Cinderella”). 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.

Brandy and Rita Ora will star in the film as Cinderella and the Queen of Hearts, with China Anne McClain playing “Uma”, Kylie Cantrall playing “Red” and Dara Reneé playing “Ulyana”.

Disney has released a video featuring. some of the stars of the film, that has announced that production has now begun on making the film.

The new film will feature seven new songs, and Disney classic songs will advance the story.

Jennifer Phang (“Advantageous,” “Half-Life,” “Foundation,” “The Flight Attendant”) is directing and is also a co-executive producer of the movie.   The film’s script is written by Dan Frey and Russell Sommer (“Magic: The Gathering”). Returning to the franchise is production designer Mark Hofeling (“Descendants,” “Zombies,” “High School Musical”). Gary Marsh is an executive producer, and the casting directors are Alexis Frank Koczara and Christine Smith Shevchenko (Disney Branded Television’s upcoming “The Naughty Nine,” “The Mighty Ducks: Game Changers,” “black-ish” and “grown-ish”).

“The Pocketwatch” will be coming soon to Disney Channel and Disney+.
