A new extended look at Disney Channel’s Original Movie DESCENDANTS coming on July 31, 2015. The highly-anticipated DCOM movie follows the children of some of the most famous villains in a modern-day retelling.
On July 24th DESCENDANTS will be available a week early for the WATCH Disney Channel app and on July 31 it will be premiering on the Disney Channel. At the same time, the movie will be available on DVD at retailers nationwide. The DVD includes a free “Isle of the Lost” bracelet packed inside, plus exclusive bonus features including cast dance rehearsal footage conducted by Kenny Ortega, bloopers and more!
The story, set in the idyllic kingdom of Auradon, playfully presents the unexpected possibilities of what happens after the “happily ever after.” As it unfolds, Ben, the benevolent teenage son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from “Beauty and the Beast”), is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation is to offer a chance at redemption to Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay, the trouble-making offspring of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil and Jafar, who have all been sequestered on the forbidden Isle of the Lost for 20 years. These villainous descendants are allowed into Auradon for the first time to attend prep school alongside the teenage progeny of Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan. Only time will tell if these evil teens follow in the footsteps of their wicked parents.
As these sons and daughters of evil meet the children of goodness, their story incorporates empowering themes about self-confidence, finding the beauty within, freedom of choice, personal responsibility, teamwork, justice and empathy.
