Step aside, Dr. Doofenshmirtz: you’re not the only one dealing with adolescent angst. The teenage kids of Disney’s most notorious villains are coming to Disney Channel in 2015 as part of a new original movie.
Directed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical, Gilmore Girls), these high-schoolers are the children of Disney’s classic characters – most notably its villains. In fact, Nerdist recently spoke to Kristin Chenowith about playing Maleficent.
Here’s a little teaser trailer — you can spot the villainous parents in the shadows.
According to Disney, the plot revolves around the teenage son of Belle and the Beast (from… do I really have to tell you? Beauty and the Beast). As he prepares to ascend the throne, he declares that the spawn of Cruella De Vil (101 Dalmations), Maleficent (Sleeping Beauty), The Evil Queen (Snow White), and Jafar (Aladdin), who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island, will be allowed into the kingdom to attend a prep school alongside the children of the Fairy Godmother (Cinderella), Aurora (Sleeping Beauty), Rapunzel (Tangled) and Mulan (again – do I have to tell you? Mulan). There, Carlos (Cameron Boyce), Mal (Dove Cameron), Evie (Sofia Carson) and Jay (Booboo Stewart) will have the chance to redeem themselves and prove that they can be good. OR CAN THEY?
