Earlier this month, Disney announced a new Disney channel movie for 2015, entitled Descendants.
This live action TV-movie will star the children of famous animated Disney characters. Specifically, the children of Sleeping Beauty, Mulan, Rapunzel and the Fairy Godmother will face off against their rivals, the children of Cruella De Vil, Jafar, Maleficent and the Queen from Snow White.
The movie takes place in a high school, and it is, of course, directed by the man who directed High School Musical. Will our teenager heroes succumb to the pressure of acting like their parents, or will they follow their own hearts? (I'm pretty sure they'll learn to follow their own hearts.)
So...am I the only person who thinks this premise is absolutely ridiculous? It sounds crazy to me. What are your thoughts?
Beauty and Beast's son is somehow involved in the movie, but it was unclear to me how he comes into play. Maybe the movie starts with him moving to Disney High.
