The clip opens with shots of the blue-and-yellow-adorned drumline, dancers, and marching band at A&T University and the introduction of Drumline favorite Sean Taylor (played by Leonard Roberts), and an early peek at the first installment’s star Nick Cannon, who played newcomer Devon Miles. 

Sean and Devon’s legacy is set to be continued in the sequel by incoming student Dani, played by Alexandra Shipp. The bright young woman defies her parents’ wishes, choosing to attend A&T University in the hopes of joining the drumline.
