'Descendants 2' Stars Mitchell Hope & Dylan Playfair Are Really Good Friends Off Set

It’s true — Descendants 2‘s Ben and Gil are really, really, really great friends in real life.

Dylan Playfair and Mitchell Hope were spotted out at a concert over the weekend with director and fellow pal Kyle McCachen.

“Saturdays are for the boys @mitchellhopeofficial @dylanplayfair1,” Kyle captioned his Instagram of the two stars.

We are loving that Dylan and Mitchell are close off screen, even though they play sons of a couple that would never, ever be. (Belle and Gaston from Beauty and the Beast)

“He’s like one of my brothers,” Dylan shared in an interview with PopMania about Mitchell.

Dylan also confesses in the same interview that the two liked to wrestle on set and even got yelled at for doing so. Ha!

We knew the original cast of Descendants was close, but the D2 additions became part of the family as well.

We recently caught up with Dove Cameron and Sofia Carson to talk about what it was like working with newbies Thomas Doherty, China Anne McClain, and Dylan Playfair.

We also talked to China about coming into the successful franchise!

“It was a little bit overwhelming at times, to be honest. The sets are so massive and unique. You haven’t really seen anything like it. With Uma’s pirate ship, and all of these amazing sets, and Thomas and Dylan were so excited as well,” China told us. “It was great. The first movie was so good, and the whole cast welcomed me. I felt like I was family after the first day.”

“It’s been so special to grow our family,” Sofia said. “And they all feel like long-lost brothers and sisters who were always part of the family. China is amazing. She’s a force to be reckoned with and she did an incredible job bringing Uma to life.”

“We met our first day, but a month before shooting, we do bootcamp where we learn how to sword-fight, we learn choreography, we work with Kenny [Ortega, the director] on our character development,” she continued. “I met China when she was recording ‘What’s My Name?’” I met Dylan and Thomas and everyone in our first day of rehearsal. You bond pretty quickly in those rehearsals because you’re there for hours and hours of the day.”

Dylan was completely new to me. He’s still one of my favorite people on the planet,” Dove told JJJ. “He’s incredibly intelligent, so if you made that character really intelligent, that would be Dylan. He’s so happy-go-lucky. He’s so sunny.”

China and I have known each other for quite some time,” she said. “I feel like it’s sort of a written rule that all the Disney girls have to cross paths. We actually met at a bunch of auditions. So I was really excited to be working together.”

As for her real-life boyfriend, Dove told us, “And then Thomas and I are obviously dating [she shows us a cute pic of them as her phone background]. That was the best. It was amazing to be able to work with them.”

And this cast spent a lot of time together off-screen too.

“We were always together. There’s this restaurant, we’d go there every night,” China said. “We went there so much that Thomas noticed when they changed one little thing on the menu. It was super fun. Or we would spend time in someone’s hotel room, and we’d play music, have our guitars, and sing and dance. It was really fun.”

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.

Kenny Ortega Says You'll Fall In Love With Uma's Gang of Pirates in 'Descendants 2'

China Anne McClain, Dylan Playfair and Thomas Doherty are about to become your favorite pirates ever.

The three newcomers to the Descendants family star as Uma, Gil and Harry in the upcoming Descendants 2 and word on the street has it that they’re incredible — just take director Kenny Ortega‘s word for it.

“And as great as it was to land China – who’s this amazing triple threat: actress, singer, dancer – and then see what she could do with the character of Uma,” Kenny boasted in a new interview with Huffington Post.

“…I think that ‘Descendants’ fans are also going to get a big kick out of Uma’s two lieutenants: Harry, Captain Hook’s son played by Thomas Doherty, this terrific young actor from Scotland. We’ve also got Dylan Playfair, who does a great job as Gil, the son of Gaston from Beauty and the Beast.”

Get ready Descendants fans, because “these three really add to the fun of this film.”

Descendants 2 will premiere on Friday, July 21st.

“I know that the pirates got some,” Dove told us. “And I don’t care what you say, Kenny. Me and Thomas and Dylan…we talked Kenny into getting one with just the four of us. And then he backed out. But I’m going to get him.”

Before Dove Cameron fell in love with Thomas Doherty, there was something in particular that struck her about him.

The 21-year-old actress recently talked to JJJ about what she first noticed about her Descendants 2 co-star, and now-boyfriend.

“The first thing I loved about Thomas…honestly, that’s a really hard question to answer because I’m dating him now,” she told us. “So I think the first thing I maybe noticed positively – because I didn’t love him for a while – was that he was very…every conversation you had with him was very intimate. He saw through me immediately.”

Aw! How sweet is that? She recently told us the whole cast and crew noticed their chemistry before they even became a couple.

Dove also gushed over her other new co-stars – China Anne McClain and Dylan Playfair.

“First thing I loved about China – her and I have known each other for many years and we clicked immediately,” she said. “We’ve always been friends. She’s very happy and I’m very happy.”

“First thing I loved about Dylan was how immediately connected we were,” Dove told JJJ. “We’re kindred spirits. We talk for hours about philosophy and travel, and he was a very fast friend.”

'Descendants 2' Villains Take Center Stage on Rebellious New Poster!

'Descendants 2' Villains Take Center Stage on Rebellious New Poster!

Thomas Doherty, China Anne McClain, and Dylan Playfair star on this brand new poster for Descendants 2!

The music-driven sequel follows the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal (Dove Cameron), Evie (Sofia Carson), Carlos (Cameron Boyce), and Jay (Booboo Stewart) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon.

When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma (McClain), the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town.

Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry (Doherty) and Gaston’s son Gil (Playfair), to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.

Descendants 2 hits Disney Channel this summer.
