Descendants 2 is a following of the first movie “Descendants”. In the last movie, Mal (Dove Cameron), Evie (Sofia Carson), Carlos (Cameron Boyce) and Jay (Booboo Stewart) all moved to Auradon. In this movie, a few months have passed and Mal (Dove Cameron) is having a hard time adjusting to her new life as a celebrity. Because she is now the girlfriend of King Ben (Mitchell Hope), she is trying to fit in by dying her hair blonde, wearing pretty dresses, and behaving like a lady.

However, she has been using her mother’s spell book to do all those things. She has been basically relying on her mother’s spell book to do everything. Evie scolds Mal for using magic to resolve her issues that she is going through. And even though Mal has talked to her friends about how she is feeling regarding her new-found fame, they don’t really pay attention to her and her doubts. They feel at home in Auradon and are having fun; they like their life there. Evie for example is designing which is something she loves. Jay is the captain of the fencing team and Carlos still loves and cares for Dude, the dog. But nowadays, he has a crush on Jane (Brenna D’Amico), daughter of the fairy godmother.

One day on a date Ben discovers that Mal has been using magic. And not only that, but she has been relying on magic to do everything. So Mal tells the truth about the insecurities that she’s been having. A disappointed Ben leaves. Mal is now also brokenhearted so she decides to go back home, back to the isle. However, Mal is going to find out soon that there is a new villain in charge, none other than her old nemesis Uma (China Anne McClain), daughter of Ursula. Uma’s friends include Harry Hook (Thomas Doherty), son of Captain Hook, and Gil (Dylan Playfair), son of Gaston. Mal and Uma never got along, Mal even had a nickname for Uma which was “Shrimpy”.

Uma never forgave Mal since she got to go to Auradon and she didn’t. Quickly news is spread that Mal is back on the isle. Meanwhile back in Auradon, Mal’s friends discover that she has gone back to the isle and they went to talk to Ben. However, Ben is kidnapped and Uma blackmails Mal. In exchange for Ben, Mal must bring the fairy godmother wand to Uma.
