DESCENDANTS - Disney’s Newest Movie out now! #Descendants #DisneyDescendants #sp

From the Emmy Award-winning director and choreographer Kenny Ortega (“High School Musical” franchise) comes this original contemporary story of classic Disney characters reinvented and the introduction of modern Disney lore. Enter this new epic universe of relatable tween characters on a journey of self-discovery. New on Disney DVD, and complete with never-before-seen bonus and a FREE bracelet!

In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic “Beauty and the Beast”) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella de Vil, Maleficent the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes, including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?

Purchase Descendants on Amazon for $14.85 & FREE Shipping on orders over $35.

A favorite quote of mine from the movie: "Don’t focus on the past or you miss the future" – Fairy Godmother

This is a super cute movie that the entire family will enjoy.  Growing up loving the classic fairy tales, it was so cute to see how the kids of our favorite villains and royalty turn out.    This is a great story, it teaches kids you don't have to let where you come from define you...your make your our future.  The cast was amazing, some familiar faces from the Disney channel and then some new young stars on the rise.  I think this is the next new hot series, High School Musical started it all, then Teen Beach...but I could see a trilogy or at least another episode of the Descendants.
