Disney’s ‘Descendants’ to Premiere Friday, July 31 on Disney Channel
This show tells the stories of the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains in a contemporary musical story about the challenges of living up to what your parents and peers expect.
And it’s all done with a nod to traditional fairy tales.
The cast of Descendants includes Dove Cameron, BooBoo Stewart, Cameron Boyce, Mitchell Hope, Kathy Najimy, and Kristen Chenoweth.
Emmy Award winner Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) directed, choreographed, and executive produced Descendants.
The story is set in the kingdom of Auradon and explores what happens after happily ever after. Ben – the son of Beast and Belle, who are also king and queen – is set to take the throne and his first proclamation is to offer redemption to the kids of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil, and Jafar.
The villains’ offspring – Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay – have been forced to live on the Isle of the Lost but are allowed to come to Auradon to attend prep school with the kids of the Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty, and Mualn.
Descendants airs on July 31 at 8 p.m. on Disney Channel.
