About the Movie
“Meet the next generation of villains in Disney’s Descendants!
Imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost, home of the most infamous villains who ever lived, the kids of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar, and Cruella De Vil have never ventured off the island…until now. Sent to idyllic Auradon, to attend prep school alongside the children of beloved Disney heroes, these villainous kids must execute a plan that helps their evil parents achieve “world domination” once again.

Mom Maven’s Thoughts
I would give Descendants 4 out of 5 stars! The story was intriguing, I love the thought of the villains having children and sharing their villainy with the next generation. The cast has star power that can sing and dance! Without giving away any spoilers, I’ll say this is a fun movie that most Disney families will enjoy.
