disney descendants cast Disney's 'Descendants': Meet the kids of all your favorite villains Everyone knows the original Disney villains. From Cruella de Vil to Jafar to Maleficent, these cartoon baddies haunted our nightmares as kids and remind us as adults of the movies we grew up watching.

Disney Channel is preparing to usher in a whole new class of villains with “Descendants,” an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie which will introduce viewers to the offspring of the big bad villains. 

The live action musical adventure comedy, due in 2015, begins with relative peace in the land since all the bad guys have been exiled to a prison called Isle of the Lost. That’s when Belle and Beast’s son Ben makes his first proclamation as heir to the throne to pardon and free all the children of the villains. Faced with freedom for the first time, the kids must choose to live in peace or follow in their parents footsteps.

Check out the first official look at the main cast below (first posted on EW):
