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, 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?
“live-action adventure-comedy that taps into Disney’s most evil villains and introduces their children—a modern-day generation of teenagers who ultimately question the evil that’s always been in their hearts.”
Live action movie directed by "High School Musical"'s Kenny Ortega.

“Descendants” Disney Channel movie to star Disney Villains’ teenage children, from the makers of “High School Musical” | Inside the Magic

Live...action. I'd have taken animated...but live action...

Um. I'll watch. No guarantees I'll enjoy it.

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

well the premise sounds............interesting?


I think this movie could work better if it was animated, not live action. And even that's a stretch

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

It's sounds too horrible not to watch.

TBH, I think this would work way better as an animated series. Sounds like they're stuffing this film with too many characters, I expect about half of them will barely have an reason to be in the plot except to say "look, there's an offspring of X in this movie as well!"

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

This is literally like thousands of fan fics who use the same concept of "what if my favorite series's children did stuff?".

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

I am not even remotely interested. I will probably watch it, just because personally I won't be able to officially hate on it otherwise, but god the premise sounds so terrible.

I think this could have worked as a TV series as well. I mean granted the premise still sounds asinine, but it would of had a better shot as a cartoon series than a film. Also, the fact that the film is live action will also hurt it's chances of being good

So much this.

I was intrigued until I saw this.

These villainous descendants are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes.
And then I laughed and nope'd into space.

I read about this on tv tropes last week
Main/High School AU - Television Tropes & Idioms
this happens in alot of fanfic
"The basic overarching plot is, 'What is the contrived nonsense that drives (insert wacky thing here) to take a human form and go to high school?'"

first plot hole didnt all thos bad guys die/expode/vanish ect
when did they have children

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

Why is this happening? Can't they spend their money on better things?

Re: Descendants - "Basically baby villains"

Anyone else find it weird that these Disney characters all had children around the same year?
