Disney Is Making a TV Movie About the Kids of Your Favorite Villains


The Disney Channel is making a live action original movie called Descendants about the hitherto unheard of teenage children of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar. Chances are that it’ll be a total disaster, but, guys, this idea is sooooo good.

Descendants will be directed by Kenny Ortega (yes, of NEWSIES fame) and is being described by Deadline thusly:

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?

First of all, LOL at the Disney villains naming their kids plain-ass names like Carlos, Evvie, Mal and Jay because you KNOW Maleficent would be naming her child Ravenia Devilsclaw or some shit like that. Secondly, I’ve aquired an exclusive still of Belle and Beast’s benevolent prince of a son and I think that you all will be really into it.

Fingers crossed, Descendants will be awesome and all of the children will decide to stay evil.
