There are plenty of reasons why Descendants 2 had 10.9 million total viewers joining Descendants as the Top 2 Cable TV Telecasts in four years among young people. Kenny Ortega and the Descendants 2 cast knocked one out of the park with the airing of Descendants 2 on the Disney Channel this summer. Just minutes after watching it (and enjoying the premieres’ secrets from the set) they were asking to watch it again. Yes they watched it two times in a row! Then they said “Mom!!! We have to have it when it comes out on DVD.” Well guess what? It’s NOW available and you can watch it over and over again and experience why so many viewers loved the music, dance, cast and story of Descendants 2 so much.
If you haven’t had the chance to enjoy Descendants 2 at home yet with your children here’s a little bit about the movie.
The villain kids are back and the stakes are even higher in the highly anticipated sequel to the Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”! The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit “Descendants,” as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains try to find their place in idyllic Auradon. When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.
