For everyone out there who has been curious about Descendants 3, the latest installment in the Disney Channel franchise, a new teaser was released tonight!
In the video below, you can see what is effectively the groundwork for a new, very-epic adventure, one that takes some of these characters into new territory where they run into a wide array of surprises. A big part of the fun with this show is just seeing so many versions of Disney classics, spun and adapted for a new generation to enjoy. We’re sure that this is going to continue to be a part of the franchise through at least the end of this movie.
Over the past few years, Descendants has become one of the most-profitable franchise for the Disney Channel and really the entire company as a whole when you consider all of the merchandising — it marks an opportunity for the brand to take some of their established properties and adapt them to what is largely a whole new generation. There’s also just generational appeal for this franchise in general — it’s the sort of thing that viewers young and old can very much enjoy, really no matter who they are or where they come from.
So when will it actually premiere? There is still a little bit of ambiguity on that, but all signs point towards it coming out at some point this summer. A more proper premiere date will likely come down the line, but we’re certainly curious to see, first and foremost, whether or not Disney airs the movie across many of their networks. We’re also interested to see the viewership, given that with many young viewers getting older, the fear is always going to be that they may have eventually aged out of the brand. We don’t think it applies here as much as it does some other franchises.
One way or another, though, we have a feeling that the movie is going to generate big ratings — and that many viewers who liked the first two will be satisfied.
