We’re almost a week away till Disney’s Descendants premieres on Disney Channel!
To hold us over, Disney released the first six minutes to the film on their YouTube channel today, which includes a sneak peek to “Rotten to the Core” — a pulsating musical number that introduces Mal (Dove Cameron), Evie (Sofia Carson), Carlos (Cameron Boyce) and Jay (Boo Boo Stewart), the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains.
Descendants is 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.
Made for kids, tweens and families, the movie is directed, executive-produced and choreographed by Emmy Award-winning Kenny Ortega.
Disney’s Descendants will premiere Friday, July 31st (8:00pm ET/PT) on Disney Channel. Check out the first six minutes of Descendants below!
