Disney just added two new faces to the upcoming Descendants!
Sofia Carson has been tapped to take on the role of Evvie, the daughter of the Evil Queen from Snow White, one of four villain kids in the Kenny Ortega-directed flick.
Booboo Stewart, who we all know from New Moon and the upcoming X-Men: Days of Future Past, has joined the project as Jay, the son of Jafar.
The project, set in a present-day idyllic kingdom where the benevolent teenage son of King Beast and Queen Belle, Ben (Mitchell Hope) offers a chance at redemption for the troublemaking offspring of Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal), the Evil Queen (Evvie) and Jafar (Jay), will start production in late May.
Dove Cameron also stars.
Jaden Smith has just been cast in the upcoming slavery film The Good Lord Bird!
According to Deadline, the 15-year-old actor/singer will star alongside Liev Schreiber in the big-screen adaptation of the 2013 National Book Award winner by James McBride.
The book is about Henry Shackleford (Smith), a young slave living in the Kansas Territory in 1857, when the region is a battleground between anti- and pro-slavery forces. When John Brown (Schreiber), the legendary abolitionist, arrives in the area, an argument between Brown and Henry’s master quickly turns violent. Henry is forced to leave town — with Brown, who believes he’s a girl.
Over the ensuing months, Henry — whom Brown nicknames Little Onion — conceals his true identity as he struggles to stay alive. Eventually Little Onion finds himself with Brown at the historic raid on Harpers Ferry in 1859—one of the great catalysts for the Civil War.
Congrats Jaden on the sure-to-be amazing role!

Chloe Moretz is bringing another book to life for the big screen, The Wrap reports.
The 16-year-old actress is in final negotiations to play Cassie Sullivan in an adaption of Rick Yancey‘s “The 5th Wave”, which was a JJJ Book Club pick.
Read the book’s summary below: After the 1st wave, only darkness remains. After the 2nd, only the lucky escape. And after the 3rd, only the unlucky survive. After the 4th wave, only one rule applies: trust no one.
Now, it’s the dawn of the 5th wave, and on a lonely stretch of highway, Cassie runs from Them. The beings who only look human, who roam the countryside killing anyone they see. Who have scattered Earth’s last survivors. To stay alone is to stay alive, Cassie believes, until she meets Evan Walker. Beguiling and mysterious, Evan Walker may be Cassie’s only hope for rescuing her brother—or even saving herself. But Cassie must choose: between trust and despair, between defiance and surrender, between life and death. To give up or to get up.
WHAT DO YOU THINK about this role for Chloe?
