Disney is giving fans a fresh take on four of its villains by making them parents.
The Disney Channel has just revealed its first trailer for The Descendants, which sees Maleficent (Kristin Chenoweth), the Evil Queen (Kathy Najimy), Cruella de Vil (Wendy Raquel Robinson) and Jafar (Maz Jobrani) deal with their children in today’s world.
Billed as the “next generation of villains“, Mal (Dove Cameron) is the daughter of Maleficent, Evie (Sofia Carson) is the Evil Queen’s daughter, Carlos (Cameron Boyce) is Cruella de Vil’s son and Jay (Booboo Stewart) is the offspring of Jafar. The new king of the Disney land outside of the prison for villains decrees that their ‘innocent’ children should be allowed to live with everyone else and be given a chance to redeem themselves.
And like any teenager, this group really push their parents to the limit, regardless of dark magic.
Our favourite Disney villains are also in safe hands, with High School Musical‘s Kenny Ortega as director, choreographer and executive producer.
The TV movie, The Descendants, will debut on the Disney Channel this summer.
