Descendants 2 is in Development! Which is music to my nieces ears literally, as well as mine because we all know how much I love Disney. Descendants is the new High school Musical and is a hit with all preteens 8-13ish. I watched Descendants about six times in the course of a 48 hour weekend while we had the girls and I still can hear the music playing in my head. I know each word to “Rotten to the Core” and most of the other ones. The girls love it because its cool, but parents love it because it is wholesome and they know it’s safe. I am sure it will be safe to say that Descendants 2 will be just as big of a hit as Descendants and of course High school Musical as well.
Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon.
When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.
