PRAGUE – 1 September, 2015 – Disney Channel will premiere its eagerly anticipated original movie, “The Descendants,” in the Czech Republic on Saturday, 19 September at 10:30 a.m.
Staring Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce, and Booboo Stewart, “The Descendants” introduces Disney fans to the offspring of its infamous villains you never knew they had. In this unexpected story of what happens after the “happily ever after,” the trouble-making descendants of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil and Jafar are offered a chance at redemption after being sequestered on the Isle of the Lost for 20 years.
Can these sons and daughters of evil peacefully attend prep school alongside the teenage progeny of Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan? Only time will tell if these evil teens will turn toward goodness or follow in the footsteps of their wicked parents.
Enjoyable for the entire family, “The Descendants,” gives a knowing wink to traditional fairy tales and fuses castles with classrooms to create a contemporary, music-driven story about the challenges in living up to parental and peer expectations.
