Maleficent. The Evil Queen. Cruella De Vil. Jafar.
One might say rotten to the core.
We all know their stories. Or do we?
Take a stroll into the future, one where Disney villains become parents. That’s what you’ll find in this original new story of Disney villains parenting (or not) their teenage offspring.
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 in May.
In The Isle of the Lost, we are first introduced to the characters we’ll also find in the original movie, Disney Descendants. In fact, Disney Descendants happens “after”…….so reading the book sets you up and really introduces you to the characters well. It doesn’t spoil the plot of the movie at all.
We’ve watched Disney Descendants several times since it premiered on the Disney Channel last week and best of all, you can own it now too. It went directly to DVD! And it includes never before seen footage and a FREE bracelet!
Here’s the basic scoop”
In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic “Beauty and the Beast”) 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.
These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes, including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?
My daughter and I both loved the movie (and book) and love that there are so many catchy songs in it too. In fact, there is a Disney Descendants Soundtrack that we will be buying!
Disney Descendants already has an amazing line of Disney Descendants Dolls, Decor, School Supplies and Halloween costumes too!
It’s rated G and if you are a Disney fan, it’s fun to see the future of all the Disney characters we’ve grown to love and despise. 🙂
