In 2015 Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants introduced a whole new side to the legacy of Disney villains and even more catchy tunes. The story of the children of Disney’s long-feared baddies, the movie starred Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, and Cameron Boyce as the teenage daughters and sons of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil, respectively.
Aside from a fresh crop of young talent, Disney also tapped established performers like Kristin Chenoweth, who played Maleficent to Cameron’s Mal.
Directed and choreographed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, the original Newsies film), the sequel to the movie (also directed by Ortega), Descendants 2, airs July 21. For the sequel, Whoopi Goldberg provides the voice of Ursula from The Little Mermaid.
The movie musical features new songs such as “Ways to Be Wicked,” “Chillin‘ Like a Villain,” and “Evil.”
Descendants 2 debuts July 21 at 8 PM ET/PT in an unprecedented simultaneous premiere across six networks: ABC, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Freeform, Lifetime, Lifetime Movies plus branded apps.
