Directed and choreographed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, the original Newsies film), Descendants took Disney Channel by storm back in 2015. The story of the children of Disney’s villains 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.
Tony winner Kristin Chenoweth played Maleficent to Cameron’s Mal, and the two reunited on screen as mother-daughter-duo Velma and Amber Von Tussle in NBC’s Emmy-nominated Hairspray Live!
The sequel to the movie (also directed by Ortega) about Disney’s baddies, Descendants 2, will air July 21. In advance of the premiere, the cast performed two original songs from the movie musical on Good Morning America. Watch the mashup of “Ways to Be Wicked” and “What’s My Name.”
