Did you know that Disney’s infamous villains have children? In the first Descendants movie, the villain kids of the “Isle of the Lost” are given an opportunity to go to Auradon prep by Prince Ben, as his first proclamation before he takes the throne. Their parents have something else in mind for them at Auradon Prep , but will they go through with the plan or rid themselves of their evil ways for the greater good?
Here’s a first look at Disney’s Descendants 2
Descendants has gotten three times the trouble? The cast added a few new characters also known as “the villain kids/VK’s” to the movie. The Vk’s consist of Captain Hook’s son, Harry, Ursula’s daughter, Uma, and Gaston’s son, Gil. Thomas Doherty, China Ann McClain, and Dylan Playfair decided to take up the roles on the film as the pirate gang.
Cruella De Vil’s son, Carlos, Evie, the daughter of the Evil Queen, Maleficent’s daughter, Mal, Jay, the son of Jafar, and Queen Belle, and King Beast’s son, Ben are portrayed by Cameron Boyce, Sofia Carson, Dove Cameron, Boo Boo Stewart, and Mitchell Hope.
The gang returns to the Isle of the Lost after the pressure to be royal became too much for Mal to handle. Mal could not believe her eyes when she found “her archenemy Uma taking her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the rundown town.” The Vk’s and the pirate gang still have a grudge held over prince Ben’s head for not being selected to go to Auradon Prep. A big problem arises when they find out their plan to break the barrier and unleash all the villains on the Isle, once and for all.
Ben undergoes “villain training” in order to not get caught rescuing Mal amongst the Villains, but he is not going full villain.
Behind the Cast

Carson was also recognized by Radio Disney’s “Next Big Thing” for her song “Love is the Name.”
There’s even a romance brewing between a few of the Descendants 2 movie stars! Cameron Boyce has been dating Brenna D’Amico who plays the Fairy Godmother’s daughter, Jane since August of 2016.
After breaking it off with Ryan McCartan her costar on Liv and Maddie, fiancé of six months, and boyfriend of four years; Dove and Thomas made it official on February 15, 2017, after dating rumors that started through their Snapchats and she assured People Magazine that they are keeping their relationship private because it is better that way.
We’ll have to see what’s in store for the Desendants sequel this summer.
