Ben, now the king of Auradon, attempts to help Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay adjust further to their lives at Auradon. However, when Ben proposes to Mal, she cracks and returns to the Isle of the Lost. So Evie, Carlos and Jay help Ben disguise as a VK so they can return to the Isle, find her, and without being recognized. Also, Mal is shocked to find that Uma (China Anne McClain), Ursula's daughter, along with her friends, Harry (Thomas Doherty), Captain Hook's son; and Gil (Dylan Playfair), Gaston's son, have taken her place as ruler of the island. Uma was still resentful over the fact that she wasn't being selected by Ben to come to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids. So she gathers her pirate gang, including Harry and Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains who were imprisoned on the Isle once and for all.
