    Cute Disney Channel Movie!

    My family (and extended family to include my friends and their kids) loves Disney, so when I saw previews for this movie, I set the DVR to record. Most of their movies turn out cheesy, but still cute, and this one is super cute, but still has a tint of cheese to it, but it doesn't take away from it one bit! The songs are awesome, and if you have a kid that loves other Disney Channel shows, the actors in it (as always) come from those shows. It's a good movie about how you can be your own person. You make the choice of who you are, and you shouldn't blame others for the choices you make, because they're yours to make, and despite the Disney Channel cheese, it's a great lesson for kids to learn. It even had the Be Our Guest song snuck in there (which happens to be from my favorite Disney cartoon) in a remade fashion. Really, overall it was very cute and well made. So much so I ended up buying the DVD (and I hate DVDs I prefer Bluray!) just to watch it again! My cousin's daughter loved it so much she wants to dress up like one of the characters for Halloween. She's obsessed! Apparently everyone else liked it too because frankly all the costumes based on this movie sold out as soon as they got to the Disney stores! Your kids will love it...but more importantly, you'll enjoy watching it with them!

    This Former After School Care Giver and FF Writer

    As a former martial arts studio after school coordinator, I have to keep up with what kids are into. I grew up with and have kept my collection of Disney films, including Beauty and the Beast, Sleeping Beauty, 101 Dalmations, Aladdin, Cinderella, and Snow White. Needless to say I'm a 23 year old male who has the desire to stay young, there again what person my age doesn't? Anyway, this film caught my eye not because it was a run of the mill television movie, but because it gives a fairly unique story about the offspring of classic characters whom we're all familiar with. This film and the animated spin-off series, Wicked World are captivating and funny, needless to say they both have that Disney je ne sais quoi that captivates audiiences in and out of the intended target demographic. If you're looking for a good family night movie I urge you to give this film a try. I know you won't be disappointed.

    My kids love this movie, they are little and they love the music and the fact that there are so many references to other Disney princesses and characters. If you watch the Disney TV shows you will recognize pretty much every kid in this movie, my kids did right away. The story is pretty basic, the kids of evil parents get the chance to reform their wicked ways and be apart of happy magical kingdom land, and guess what? They do! Not a whole lot of surprise or shock here. You might be better off watching it once and then buying the soundtrack.

    I read the first book and picked up the second without knowing that they books didn't contain the content of the movie. So I had to get the movie. Although I feel in love with the characters in the book I wasn't as impressed of them in the movie. Evie in the movie doesn't come across as strong as she does in the book. But loved the casting of Mel. Overall it's a good movie but a lil too much singing for me.

    I really enjoyed this movie. For kids and grownups alike. Was not expecting songs and dancing but the songs do get in your head and you will be humming them days later. So stock up on the soundtrack as well. Well put together story about the children of disney villains. Some nice twists and turns happen along the way. Great film that makes you look forward to Descendants 2. The DVD also comes with a nice bracelet.

    The movie was very cute. You could definitely tell it is a Disney movie... with the predictable plots and the cutesy characters and costumes and the singing. But it still was heartwarming and funny and definitely a recommended movie to spend time with your Disney-lovin' kid or the adult who will never lose their love for Disney anything.

    Love the music in this movie. It's a cute movie and what you would expect for a Disney Channel Original Movie...adorable and cool to see some of our favorite characters come to life, including some of our favorite villains, but don't be fooled, it's all about their kids. Dove Cameron (Mal) is very talented, and so our the other kids. Great family movie.

    A great story on what would the offspring of famous Disney characters would do. Try to live up to their parents legacy of course! The movies tells the tail of the aspiring ambitions of the sons & daughters of famous Disney characters such as Beauty & The Beast, The Evil Queen, Sleeping Beauty, Maleficent & many others. A must buy for any Disney fans.
