‘Descendants’ ‘most ambitious’ Disney movie

Los Angeles, July 26 (IANS) Kenny Ortega’s forthcoming film “Descendants” is by far the biggest and most ambitious movie Disney has ever attempted, says the channel’s president.

The TV movie premiered on Friday at Walt Disney Studios. Before the screening, Disney Channel president Gary Marsh spoke about the two-and-a-half years of work that went into the project, reports variety.com.

“We have now made 100 Disney Channel original movies, and this is by far the biggest and most ambitious movie we’ve ever attempted,” Marsh said.

The feature follows the malevolent teenage offspring of popular Disney villains from “Sleeping Beauty”, “Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs”, “101 Dalmatians” and “Aladdin”. It is infused with classic tales and high school drama with original music for Mickey Mouse fans of all ages.

“Because it deals with fairy tales that we all know and love in every generation, the continuance of these stories will bring everyone together,” actress Sofia Carson said about her Disney Channel original movie debut.

The film also features Kristin Chenoweth, Disney Channel veterans Dove Cameron (“Liv and Maddie”) and Cameron Boyce (“Jessie”) along with network newcomer Booboo Stewart.

“Descendants” will beam on July 31 on Disney Channel.
