Evil Never Looked So Good in Disney’s ‘Descendants’ Trailer
The children of classic Disney villains make evil look easy (and good!) in the new trailer for the network’s highly anticipated original movie, Descendants.
The movie follows the children of some of Disney’s heroes and villains that we knew, loved and sometimes feared as children. Here’s a description of the film, according to the network:
Descendants is set in a present-day idyllic kingdom, where the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s 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, Evvie 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?
Descendants stars Kristin Chenoweth as Maleficent and Dove Cameron as her daughter, Mal; Kathy Najimy as the Evil Queen and Sofia Carson as her daughter, Evie; Wendy Raquel Robinson as Cruella de Vil and Cameron Boyce as her son, Carlos and Maz Jobrani as Jafar and Booboo Stewart as his son Jay.
The film was directed, choreographed and executive produced by High School Musical‘s Kenny Ortega and premieres this summer on Disney Channel.
