What’s a girl to do when at Disney World and the premiere of the much-anticipated Descendants 2 is showing on tv? Have a pajama party, watching the Descendants 2 cast in your Animal Kingdom Lodge room of course! That’s exactly where we found ourselves, when my family was on a vacation to Walt Disney World last month. We HAD to watch!
We weren’t alone!
Descendants 2 has reached over 26 million Total Viewers on television alone, since it’s July debut.
It’s one that will be watched over and over in our house, so I’m thankful that my friends at Disney have provided me one to keep and one to give to one of my lucky followers! Keep reading!
That’s right, Descendants 2 released on DVD on August 15th and one of you will walk away with a copy!
But first, the story…
The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit “Descendants,” as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — 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, 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 and Gaston’s son Gil, 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 is a hit for Disney Channel! In fact, Disney Channel has had seven of the Top 8 original cable TV movies EVER:
- High School Musical 2
- Teen Beach Movie
- Wizards of WaverlyPlace: The Movie
- Descendants 2
- Phineas and Ferb the Movie: Acrossthe 2nd Dimension
- Camp Rock
I was first introduced to the concept of Disney Descendants with the breakout novel The Isle of the Lost, which I received at the Disney Social Media Moms Celebration. Both my daughter and I were hooked. It’s been so successful, that there are now 2 follow up novels: Return to the Isle of the Lost and Rise of the Isle of the Lost. (And no worries, they aren’t the same as the Descendants movies…the novels complement the movies)
Last month, during my few days spent at D23 Expo, the Descendants 2 cast – Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson and BooBoo Stewart, appeared and signed autographs at the Music Emporium, and participated in the Expo parade.
There was even more Descendants 2 fun to be had though.
Before the expo opened one morning, we had time to explore the “A Pirates Life For Me” exhibit with a representative from the Walt Disney Archives.
Look what I discovered. Anyone recognize it?
Why yes, this was a costume from Descendants 2, worn by Uma, the daughter of Ursula.
Recognize this one?
Why yes, this was a costume from Descendants 2, worn by Harry, the son of Captain Hook.
It was so interesting to see the costumes up close.
Descendants 2 has been so popular, I’m hoping for a third! Anyone else?
