Disney’s Descendants 2 DVD Review

Disney's Descendants 2

We are a Disney family. Truly, we heart all things Disney from films to collectibles and even theme park visits. Though being in the Midwest, means we only get to enjoy the mass market side of things all year round with a favorite being movie nights with our beloved characters and villains.

As my daughters aged, they began to watch more of the live action Disney films vs the traditional animated. One series that continues to make the top of their watch list is the “Descendants,” which is made up of the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains, Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) and now with today’s DVD release of Descendants 2.

Disney's Descendants 2

The newest of this action packed arena is Descendants 2 where the story deepens in the music-driven sequel focused on the characters trying 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.

Descendants stars a well-know kid cast: Dove Cameron (“Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (“Jessie”), Sofia Carson (Hollywood Records recording artist, “Adventures in Babysitting”), Booboo Stewart (“X-Men Days of Future Past”), and Mitchell Hope reprising the roles of Mal, Carlos, Evie, Jay and King Ben, respectively. Starring as the new villains are China Anne McClain (“A.N.T. Farm”) as Uma, the daughter of Ursula; Thomas Doherty (“The Lodge”) as Harry, son of Captain Hook; Dylan Playfair (“Some Assembly Required”) as Gil, son of Gaston; and Anna Cathcart (“Odd Squad”) as Dizzy, daughter of Cinderella’s evil stepsister Drizella and granddaughter of wicked stepmother Lady Tremaine. Also reprising their roles in this sequel are Brenna D’Amico as Jane, the daughter of Fairy Godmother; Melanie Paxson as Fairy Godmother; Dianne Doan as Lonnie, the daughter of Mulan; Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad, the son of Cinderella; Zachary Gibson as Doug, the son of Dopey; Keegan Connor Tracy as Belle and Dan Payne as Beast.
