The fairytale world is a place for imaginations to run wild and for dreams to come true. It looks like the Disney Channel has take this to heart with Disney’s Descendants.
The new Disney Channel Original follows the children of the fairytale world’s banished evil baddies—Sleeping Beauty‘s Maleficent (played by Kristin Chenoweth), Aladdin‘s Jafar, 101 Dalmatians‘s Cruella de Vil and Snow White‘s Evil Queen—as they are granted admission to Auradon Prep. While mingling with the offspring of fairytale heroes, the spawns of evil must decide if they’re really bad to the bone or noble souls.
