“I’m rotten to the core, who could ask for more?” That’s the first catchy song of many in the new original movie, Disney Descendants. My kids are OBSESSED and I’ve watched (and sang and danced along) more times that I care to admit too. If you’re not familiar yet with this film, let me give you the scoop. Such a cool premise and Disney does it SO well! Turns out our favorite Disney characters had kids of their own!
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?
