Evil intrigue is at play  in Descendants 3, the latest in this popular Disney Channel movie series now available on DVD. It is a musical, dance filled adventure led by the children of well-known Disney villains like Maleficent, the evil fairy in Sleeping Beauty who cast a spell on all the people in the land and Captain Hook, the pirate captain in Peter Pan

The Plot & Characters

In the first movie of this series audience members are introduced to a set of devilishly lovable characters, all of whom are the children of famous villains. Mal (Dove Cameron), the daughter of Maleficent, is the leader of this vibrant posse. Her three loyal friends are Carlos (Cameron Boyce, who sadly passed away suddenly last month), son of Cruella De Vil, Evie (Sofia Carson), daughter of the Evil Queen in Snow White and Jay (Booboo Stewart), son of Jafar. 

Each subsequent Descendants film furthers the story spun in previous picture. The third installment in this evil magical journey introduces us to Hades (Cheyenne Jackson), the god of the Underworld, who threatens to break through the barrier surrounding the Isle of the Lost, home to all villains. 

Follow beloved old characters and mischievous new ones in this thrilling third installment as they embark on a mission to recruit new villainous children from the Isle of the Lost to bring them to Auradon Prep, the school for the children of heroes. 

When Auradon is threatened by a new and unexpected villain, Mal and the rest of the gang fight to protect their beloved home. Join this courageous team on their harrowing journey as they battle cunning enemies, but will they be able to protect the land of heroes they have come to call home?

More about Descendants 3

You can catch Mal and the gang premiering in Descendants 3 premiering on Disney Channel on August 2nd or get it on DVD now and watch it again and again with the whole family. 

Hey, parents? Don't worry, although this movie is loads of fun, there is also a strong moral kids can learn from it. Interwoven into all the fun songs and perilous chases is the beautiful message of learning to put aside our differences to help one another. When children see the Villainous Kids ("VK")  learning to do this amidst all their wild adventures, they too will learn to recognize that what makes them unique is a strength they can use to help others. 

MBE's review is dedicated in memory of young actor Cameron Boyce who passed away unexpectedly of natural causes on July 6, 2019.
