Career

In 2006, Hope made his film debut in a short film called “Earth’s Last Remnants.” The movie, written and directed by Blake Borcich, was released in Australia. Hope played the role of ‘Amir,’ but the film was not a big success.

In 2012, Hope starred in another short film titled “Down the Way,” directed by Melia Rayner.

That same year, Hope also appeared in another short film called “Yes Mum,” directed by Jonathan Burton. He played the part of ‘Jonno’ in this emotional film about a young man’s phone call to his mother. The movie received critical acclaim.

In 2014, Hope made his first appearance on TV in the mini-series “Never Tear Us Apart: The Untold Story of INXS.” He played the young version of ‘Tim’ in two episodes of the show, which was based on the lives of the members of the Australian rock band, ‘INXS.’

At the beginning of 2015, Hope was struggling to find acting offers despite his appearances in several short films. He even considered quitting acting and continuing his university studies. However, his manager informed him about auditions for the ‘Disney Channel Original Movie’ called “Descendants.” Hope recorded the audition tape himself and sent it to Los Angeles. Impressed by his talent, the makers of the movie called him for a screen test.

“Descendants,” released in 2015, became a big break in Hope’s career. Directed by Kenny Ortega, the fantasy film tells the story of the teenage children of fictional characters from Disney pictures, such as ‘Maleficent’ and the ‘Evil Queen.’ Hope played the character of ‘Ben,’ the son of ‘Queen Belle’ and ‘Beast.’ His portrayal of a character designed to impress audiences with his innate goodness of heart earned him numerous admirers. The movie was highly popular.

Following the success of “Descendants,” Mitchell Hope was offered roles in the sequels of the movie.

The actors from the original movie lent their voices to the animated characters in the series, including Hope who voiced ‘Ben,’ the ‘King of Auradon.’

Hope showcased his dancing skills in the closing song of the movie “Descendants” called “Set It Off.” He performed the song with his co-stars Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Stephanie Bennett, and Cameron Boyce. The song gained millions of views on YouTube.

In 2017, Hope was cast in the sequel to “Descendants” titled “Descendants 2.” He reprised his role as ‘King Ben’ in the movie, which focused on the strained relationship between the King and his girlfriend, ‘Mal.’ The movie ended with the reunion of ‘Ben’ and ‘Mal.’ Just like its predecessor, this movie also enjoyed immense popularity.
