If you haven’t heard, Disney is working on a live-action movie about the progeny of Disney villains. Descendants features the offspring of Cruella de Vil, Maleficent, The Evil Queen and Jafar, and they have to decide whether to be bad like their parents or to make their own choices and follow a different path. The movie will be out in 2015, but Disney’s released the first official image.
Going clockwise from the top left, the picture features Jay, Carlos, Evvie, and Mal. They are the children of Jafar, Cruella de Vil, the Evil Queen, and Maleficent respectively, and you can kind of tell that from their outfits. They aren’t dressed like everyday teenagers, and the bold looks make me excited about seeing the outfits of the heroes in the story and all the resulting cosplay.
Will the movie be corny? Maybe. They look like they’re setting up a merchandise line just to sell Monster High-type dolls. I’m going to give it a shot though just based on these costume designs.
