China Anne McClain Dishes On Sword Fighting For 'Descendants 2'

China Anne McClain Dishes On Sword Fighting For 'Descendants 2'

There are just a handful of months left until we see China Anne McClain as Uma in Descendants 2!

The actress stars as the daughter of Ursula in the sequel film, and will be singing a version of “Poor Unfortunate Souls” for the flick — but that’s not what we want to know. We want to know about the sword fighting!

“The sword fighting is one of the hardest parts of this entire production. For all of the rehearsals, all of us were like, ‘Okay, next is sword training. Let’s get ready,’” she shared in a new BTS look at the TV movie.

China adds, “It’s tough. It’s different than dancing and it’s unnatural for the body if you’re not used to it you get tired out very quickly.”

China Anne McClain Was Destined To be a Superhero & Joins CW's 'Black Lightning'

China Anne McClain Was Destined To be a Superhero & Joins CW's 'Black Lightning'

China Anne McClain is going to be a superhero’s daughter!

The Descendants 2 actress has joined The CW’s Black Lightning, according to Deadline, in an exciting new role.

China will play Jennifer Pierce, an independent, outspoken scholar-athlete with a wild streak of her own.

Black Lightning centers on Jefferson Pierce (Cress Williams): He made his choice: He hung up the suit and his secret identity years ago, but with a daughter, Jennifer (McClain) hellbent on justice and a star student being recruited by a local gang, he’ll be pulled back into the fight as the wanted vigilante and DC legend Black Lightning.

In the comics, Jennifer and her older sister Anissa actually follow in their father’s footsteps and become superheroes, taking on the names of Lightning and Thunder.
