Watch The Trailer For Disney Descendants

Descendants-Poster

Ever asked yourself what happened to the Disney Villains after the movie ends and our favorite heroes get their happily ever after? Well, wonder no more. According to Disney Descendants, an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, they were banished to the Isle of the Lost where they raised their children without magic, but with a healthy amount of mischief.

Add Ben, (Belle and Beast’s son) convincing his dad to let the Villain Kids go to school with all the children of heroes and royalty at Auradon Prep! Of course, the villains see this at their chance at redemption, and the Descendants see it as a chance to make their parents proud, but as the trailer tells us, high school is complicated.

Disney Descendants is directed by Kenny Ortega (of High School Musical and Newsies fame), and stars Dove Cameron as Mal (Maleficent’s daughter), Booboo Stewart as Jay (Jafar’s son), Cameron Boyce as Carlos (Cruella de Vil’s son), Sofia Carson as Evie (Evil Queen’s daughter), Kristen Chenoweth as Maleficent herself, and Kathy Najimy as Evil Queen.

Disney Descendants airs on Disney Channel this summer!

Tim Burton To Direct Disney’s Live-Action Dumbo Film

dumbo-tim-burton-director-1200x520

Following his recent Margaret Keane biopic Big Eyes and the currently-in-production Miss Peregrine’s Home for Unusual Children, director Tim Burton is making plans to return to Walt Disney Pictures for a new live action adaptation of an animated feature. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Alice in Wonderland helmer will take on Dumbo, first announced for development last summer.

The original animated Dumbo, released in 1941, marked Disney’s fourth full-length animated feature and told the story of a young circus elephant who, mocked for his enormous ears, discovers that he can actually use them to fly.

The new film, which is planned to blend CGI and live-action, will feature a screenplay by Transformers scribe Ehren Kruger.

Disney has been finding quite a bit of success lately with live action takes on their classic films. The recent Maleficent grossed more than $750 million worldwide while Burton’s own Alice in Wonderland took in more than a billion. The studio will release Kenneth Branagh’s take on Cinderella this Friday while a Jon Favreau helmed take on The Jungle Book is slated to hit the big screen April 15, 2016.

Starring Eva Green, Asa Butterfield and Samuel L. Jackson, Miss Peregrine’s Home for Unusual Children will arrive in theaters March 4, 2016.
