Red: she is rising, in the new teaser for the upcoming Descendants: The Rise of Red, the latest movie in Disney’s hit franchise. Plus, there’s also a poster for the new movie, which features a mix of returning and new cast members in the July 12 premiering movie.

In the short teaser, we meet Red (Kylie Cantrall), the daughter of the Queen of Hearts. You know, the one from Wonderland? To the tune of Joan Jett & The Blackhearts’ “Bad Reputation,” she runs through the halls of Auradon Preparatory, a school for the kids of both Disney villains and heroes, spray-painting sideways, broken hearts on pictures of the casts of the previous Descendants movies.

The kicker is the introduction of Chloe (Malia Baker), the daughter of Cinderella and King Charming, catching her, uh, red-handed. Red reveals the whole hallway has been painted in blacklight paint… And that she’s goody-two-shoes Chloe’s roommate. Yuh-oh! Can nobody stop Red from rising? Help!

While the teaser isn’t really heavy on plot – it is a teaser, after all – we do know a little bit about what actually happens in the movie. Here’s the synopsis, via a press release from Disney:

Descendants: The Rise of Red follows Red, the rebellious daughter of the Queen of Hearts, and Chloe, Cinderella’s perfectionist daughter. When the tyrannical Queen of Hearts incites a coup against Auradon, polar opposites Red and Chloe must join forces and travel back in time to undo the traumatic event that set Red’s mother down her villainous path.”

There you go! The cast is packed as well, with the return of the iconic Brandy as Cinderella, Rita Ora as the Queen of Hearts, China Anne McClain as Uma, Melanie Paxson as the Fairy Godmother, and – deep breath – Dara Reneé as Uliana, Ruby Rose Turner as Bridget/Young Queen of Hearts, Morgan Dudley as Ella/Young Cinderella, Joshua Colley as Young Hook, Peder Lindell as Morgie, Grace Narducci as Fay/Young Fairy Godmother, Jeremy Swift as Principal Merlin, Paolo Montalban as King Charming, Leonardo Nam as Maddox Hatter. 

You can watch the teaser – and check out the full poster – below. Descendants: The Rise of Red premieres Friday, July 12 at 3 am ET / Midnight PT on Disney+. It will have an “encore” showing on Disney Channel on Friday, August 9 at 8 pm ET/PT.
