Disney Channel has a new original movie called Descendants a live-action starring the children of well known villains, heroes, and heroines of Disney stories.This entertainment on the big screen is suppose to be a musical adventure comedy coming out in 2014. According to Entertainment Weekly, the kingdom’s worst villains are exiled to the Isle of the Lost, a remote prison cut off from the world.

After 20 years, Ben, the son of Belle and the Beast, and heir apparent to the throne has a different idea in mind— to free the children of the villains and offer redemption. The main four on the show are Mal (Dove Cameron), Jay (Booboo Stewart), Evie (Sofia Carson) and Carlos (Cameron Boyce) and they attend a prep school where they meet other children but on the Disney heroes side including Mulan’s daughter Lonnie, Cinderella’s son Chad, and Dopey’s son Doug.

The show sounds very familiar to the idea of the cartoon of “Happily Ever After High” that also have the children of well known villains and heroes like Cinderella, Snow White, The Huntsman, and the Evil Queen.

This show is a web series and  a fashion doll franchise released by Mattel in July 2013. Which I’m sure you’ve seen the dolls around at Walmart or Toys R Us. However, I’m excited that Disney is embracing this idea of the children of villains and heroes and making it official… as I always like to say, “If it’s not Disney, it’s not good” and that’s that.

So, do you think the children of the villains will follow their parents’ footsteps or perhaps the children of the Disney heroes will fall and become a villain? Comment below and give us your thoughts…


ABC’s New Series: Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.

ABC is officially releasing “Marvel’s Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.” The series has been picked up by the network for a full season and is expected to hit the screen this fall. The Hollywood Reporter states that ABC will begin marketing the show this Sunday before the season finale of “Once Upon a Time.”

Welcome back Clark Gregg! Many of you know Clark Gregg as Agent Phil Coulson from Marvel’s feature films. Agent Coulson is in charge of assembling the selected agents from S.H.I.E.L.D. and the team investigate different cases that are highly classified and very extraordinary, this screams Men In Black to me.

The team consists of:

  • Agent Grant Ward (Brett Dalton) who is highly trained in combat and espionage
  • Agent Melinda May (Ming-Na Wen) expert pilot and martial artist
  • Agent Leo Fitz (Iain De Caestecker) who is a brilliant engineer
  • Agent Jemma Simmons (Elizabeth Henstridge) a genius bio-chemist

And with them is a new recruit who is a computer hacker Skye (Chloe Bennet).

The series includes Executive Producers Joss Whedon from Marvel’s The Avengers and ”Buffy the Vampire Slayer”, Jed Whedon & Maurissa Tancharoen are pilot co-writers  from “Dollhouse,” “Dr.Horrible’s Sing-Along Blog”, Jeffrey Bell known from “Angel” and “Alias”, and Jeph Loeb from “Smallville”.  All great and wonderful creators!! I’m looking forward to this series already!
