Disney are going to make a new, live action movie featuring the kids of various Disney Villains and Heroes. This, of course, means that they are all going to be in the same universe and time which could lead to some interesting situations.
The film takes place in a present-day idyllic kingdom, where the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic Beauty and the Beast) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making spawn of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters. These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power, or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?
I am sure the idea would be a lot more pleasing if it were to be animated, but it may be worth a watch. At least we know Belle and Beast lived happily ever after.
Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) is set to direct the film which is due out in Spring 2015.
