Brandi is returning as Cinderella in the Disney+ original film The Pocketwatch, which will be a continuation of the Descendants franchise.

Rita Ora from Alice in Wonderland is joining the cast as the ever-famous Queen of Hearts. Brandi and Rita are part of an incredible ensemble cast that also includes China Anne McClain, Kylie Cantrell, Dara Rainey, Malia Baker, Ruby Rose Turner, Morgan Dudley, Joshua Cooley, and Melanie Paxson.

Brandi’s Cinderella is “a classic Disney character, elegant, warm, good-hearted and diplomatic.” In The Pocketwatch, Cinderella has a daughter named Chloe with Prince Charming, played by Malia. The 16-year-old is “book smart and athletic, but her privilege makes her somewhat naive about the real world.”

Morgan will play Ella/Young Cinderella in The Pocketwatch. Ella is blunt, practical, and has a bit of a chip on her shoulder about being forced to work for her evil stepmother. Kylie plays Red, the rebellious 16-year-old daughter of the Queen of Hearts. Red “knows she will never get the Queen’s approval, so she finds ways to provoke her mother and stir up trouble.”

China and Melanie are reprising their roles from the previous Descendants films. The role of Ursula’s daughter Uma is China Famous. Melanie starred as the Fairy Godmother in all 3 Descendants films. Pocketwatch will return to the land of Auradon and the Isle of the Lost while taking fans through a rabbit hole into the hostile unconquered realm of Wonderland.

The official synopsis reads: “The detailed new story finds polar opposites Red and Chloe crossing paths at an important celebration in Auradon when unexpected chaos ensues. To stop the impending coup, they must join forces to travel back in time via a magical pocket watch created by the Mad Hatter’s son, in order to prevent an event that will have dire consequences.

The Descendants became a phenomenon for Disney Channel when the first film premiered in 2015. The original cast revolved around the children of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, and Jafar, but the two sequels introduced more children of famous Disney heroes and villains.
