Last year, Maleficent gave us the untold story of one of Disney’s most iconic villains. This year, Descendants offers the untold story of Maleficent’s bratty teenage daughter Mal — as well as the kids of Jafar, the Evil Queen, and Cruella de Vil.
In the Disney Channel original movie, Mal (Dove Cameron), Jafar’s son Jay (Booboo Stewart), Cruella de Vil’s son Carlos (Cameron Boyce), and the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie (Sofia Carson) are sent to prep school to mingle with the children of other, less villainous Disney characters. Watch the Disney Descendants trailer after the jump.

Barely Lethal appears to fuse the high school movie with the actions sequences from an espionage thriller. Hailee Steinfeld is the orphaned and highly trained operative who escapes life as an agent in order to experience “normal” teen life. Samuel L. Jackson is the taskmaster who wants her back; Sophie Turner is the rival; and Jessica Alba is the enemy agent who provokes everyone into a frenzy. Check out the new Barely Lethal trailer below.

The upcoming Disney Channel Original movie, Descendants, has a fantastic idea. We know all the heroes of Disney movies live happily ever after, but the villains don’t die. So what happens to them? In Descendants, we learn all the villains have been exiled to the Isle of the Lost. When the new King of the Kingdom, the son of Belle and the Beast, takes the throne, he offers the kids of the villains a chance to redeem themselves. So the teenaged kids of Maleficent from Sleeping Beauty, the Evil Queen from Snow White, Jafar from Aladdin and Cruella de Vil from 101 Dalmatians leave the Isle and join prep school alongside the kids of Disney heroes.
Casting is complete and now Disney has released the first image of the four stars of the film. Below see Mal, the daughter of Maleficent, played by Dove Cameron; Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen, played by Sofia Carson; Jay, son of Jafar, played by Booboo Stewart; and Carlos, son of Cruella de Vil, played by Cameron Boyce.
