The creator of High School Musical, Kenny Ortega, has his latest Disney project Descendants hitting the Disney Channel later this month and now you can check out the first six minutes of the new movie. Descendants is all about the children of Disney’s most evil villains, Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians, Jafar From Aladdin, and the Evil Queen from Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs. You can check it out below.
Here’s the set up:
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 of 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 are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes. 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?
Now I could go off on a soap box rant, but to tell you the truth, I am not the target audience of this movie. I wasn’t the target audience of High School Musical either, so I wasn’t expecting much from Descendants.I’m sure this will do well with the target Disney audience, and some o the adults who are really, really, really into Disney. It’s not my cup of tea though, so I’ll be passing on Descendants until some niece of nephew is visiting and wants to watch it.
