During the premiere of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Freaky Friday we were treated to a teaser for Disney’s new short form special, Under the Sea: A Descendants Story! This special will air in September to tide us over (#SeaPuns) until the premiere of the highly anticipated movie, Descendants 3 in 2019 – and we can’t wait!

In the special, our favorite arch-nemeses Mal and Uma will go head to head in an underwater battle so epic, it needs its own (mini) movie! Dove Cameron and China Anne McClain will be back as Mal and Uma! Thomas Doherty and Dylan Playfair will also be back in their roles of Harry and Gil in this live-action short-form special that Disney says will be filled with “dazzling visual effects and high-energy music and dance.” BRING. IT. ON.
