Disney Channel’s Descendants has been a hot topic at my house since 2015 and this summer, we are getting a sequel DESCENDANTS 2. While this is MacKenzie’s favorite movie, I admit that I also really like it. It’s a twist on the Disney Princess story, introducing us to the next generation of Disney Princesses and Villians. It also has an amazing soundtrack and dance, thanks to the legendary Kenny Ortega.
I was invited to Los Angeles for the Guardians of the Galaxy Vol. 2 red carpet and press junket, but one of my favorite activities, was watching never-before-seen clips from DESCENDANTS 2 and then interviewing the villian kids Mal (Dove Cameron), Evie (Sofia Carson), Carlos (Cameron Boyce), Jay (BooBoo Stewart) and China Anne McClain who joins the cast as UMA, daughter of Ursula.
I try hard to keep a secret, but when it comes to Disney’s Descendants, I’m telling ALL!

The Descendants sequel will once again follow the story of the VKs (Villain Kids) Mal, Evie, Carlos, and Jay, as they try to find where they belong in Auradon. Mal, tired of being pressured into being royal, quickly returns to the Isle of the Lost, looking to go back to her more rotten roots. Only, there’s a new queen in charge as Uma, Ursula’ daughter and Mal’s nemesis, has taken over the island with her pirate gang — which includes Captain Hook’s son Harry, and Gaston’s son Gil.
