Get ready for another healthy dose of mayhem! The premiere of the Disney Channel’s Descendants 2 is just around the corner and we’re sure we’re not the only ones ready to strap in for another action-packed adventure with our favorite villainous kids!

To get you pumped up for the premiere this summer, we’ve come up with a list of things you need to know before you tune in to Descendants 2. Check them out below!

1. We’ll be returning to the Isle of the Lost.
Maleficent’s daughter, Mal (Dove Cameron), may be gearing up for her royal cotillion, but it’s clear from the get go that her new life on Auradon isn’t everything she’s been hoping for. When the pressure gets to be too much, we’ll see Mal going back to her roots as she ventures back to the Isle of the Lost. Her time back home is bound to make for quite the adventure— especially given how much things have changed!

2. There’s a new villain in town and she’s bound to give Mal a run for her money.
The original Descendants may have introduced to the likes of Evie (daughter of the Evil Queen), Jay (Afar’s son) and more, but it looks like there are plenty more villain kids (also known as VKs) we’ve yet to meet. In fact, one VK we’ll be seeing tons of is none other than Ursula’s daughter, Uma. As the first trailer for the sequel reveals, Uma’s become the reigning villain in Mal’s absence and it’s clear she’s not happy about her return to the Isle of the Lost!

3. Uma won’t be the only newbie on the Isle!
And we’re betting you’ll be all too familiar with her friends’ notorious parents. Joining Uma on her quest to take over the island and eventually free the villains forever are none other than Captain Hook’s son, Henry, and Gaston’s son, Gil. The villainous trio is bound to give Mal and her pals a run for their money as they try to stop whatever plot they’ve got cooking!

4. Just like the first, it’ll be chockfull of original music.
Get ready to sink your teeth into a brand new crop of original tracks. Just like 2015’s Descendants, it looks like Descendants 2 will be bringing the fire with all new original music. If the first track, “Ways to Be Wicked,” is anything to go by, the new tunes are bound to be stuck in your head for days after your first watch of the movie!

5. There’ll be even more ways to watch!
The original Descendants made a total splash when it premiered on the Disney Channel back in 2015 and this time around, the House of Mouse is pulling out all the stops for the premiere. As we reported back in April, when Descendants 2 makes it’s grand debut, it’ll do so on six different networks. As originally reported by EW, the sequel is set to air on the Disney Channel, ABC, Disney XD, Freeform, and Lifetime. That means fans who just can’t wait for an all new adventure will have plenty of ways to watch when the movie hits the small screen in July!

Descendants 2 premieres July 21, 2017 on the Disney Channel.
