Ever wonder if pure evil skips a generation? Then the Disney Channel has the original movie for you!
Disney has announced that it's working on a new live action flick called Descendants that will focus on the children of Disney's most iconic villains!
Apparently the story takes off as Beauty and the
Beast Prince's teenage kid offers a second chance to the offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar (who would ever tap any of these fiends is beyond us), who have all been imprisoned on a forbidden island!
Wait, is it Alcatraz?! Because this would make a great sequel to The Rock.
Carlos, Mal, Evvie, and Jay, those meanies' kids, decide whether or not to follow in their parent's footsteps or become good while attending a prep school with the kids of Disney heroes, including the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan.
All this needs is Ja'mie, and we're completely sold.
Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer of Disney Channels Worldwide, had this to say about the magical new series:
“We mined Disney’s treasure trove of stories and developed a new, comedic approach to the fabled characters everyone knows and loves. The result is a modern and unexpected re-interpretation of classic heritage characters utilizing contemporary, relatable settings and themes.”
Honestly, this idea is sheer brilliance, especially since High School Musical's Kenny Ortega will be directing, and we're so excited to hear more about it!
