The network has announced that casting is now under way for a contemporary live-action adventure-comedy called Descendants that explores the teenage lives of the children of some of Disney’s greatest villain characters.
Here’s the scoop: Beast and Belle rule over an idyllic kingdom with their kind teenage son, who looks to be taking the throne, but his first proclamation involves a shot at redemption for the misbehaving kids of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen from Snow White, and Jafar (named Carlos, Mal, Evvie, and Jay, respectively).
The teens attend the kingdom’s hottest prep school alongside other famous offspring, including the children of the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel, and Mulan. The villainous teens face a dilemma of nature vs. nurture, and whether they’ll follow in their parents’ footsteps or embrace their own inner hero.
The film comes from a script by Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott, and will be helmed by Emmy winner Kenny Ortega. Kenny was the director director/choreographer behind High School Musical.
Coincidentally, last summer a doll line was launched called ‘Ever After High‘ was launched and follows the famed characters through high school.It’s a refreshing equal to Monster High.
