Meet the new Prince of The Descendants!
Mitchell Hope, 19, was just announced as Ben, the son of the King and Queen of Beauty and the Beast fame for the Disney Channel project.
“We were intrigued by Mitchell’s natural acting style, boyish charm and winning personality and when we brought him to Los Angeles to read opposite Dove [Cameron], it was apparent that he embodied the inherent good nature of ‘Ben’ and the sense of fairness that the character represents,” Judy Taylor, Disney Channel’s Senior Vice President of Casting & Talent, shared.
Set in a present day idyllic kingdom, Ben, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters.
WHAT DO YOU THINK of Mitchell as Ben?
