Disney Descendants 2 DVD
In Descendants 2 the villain kids are back and the stakes are even higher in the highly anticipated sequel to the Disney Channel Original Movie Descendants.
The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit “Descendants,” as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains 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. Bring home all the mischief on DVD August 15th!

In Disney Descendants 2, the teens are all grown up and preparing for a cotillion. Mal will be a lady of the court. Mal decides that she really just doesn’t belong in the “good” world and instead is meant to be evil. Teens that are struggling to fit in while being true to themselves will certainly be able to identify with this and the typical topics of romances, crushes, and fashion that abound in teen movies. Of course, it wouldn’t be Descendants 2 without sword fights, dancing, and loads of amazing music.
One of the reasons that I love the Descendants films is that they will appeal to tweens because of the tie-in to the Disney princesses and villains. But, they will also appeal to older teens (and adults) who love the costuming and music that comes along with these films. Definitely a must see film.
