The long awaited and highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants, has officially received its premiere date. On July 31 at 8 p.m., Disney Channel viewers will have the chance to see the latest film.
The film features a wide array of familiar Disney characters both good and bad.
In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from 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?
