If your not familiar with the Descendants story line, it the story of Mal (Maleficent’s daughter), Evie (the Evil Queen’s daughter), Jay (Jafar’s son) and Carlos (Cruella de Vil’s son). In part one they meet Ben, the king of Auradon (and son of Belle and the Beast), who after a series of events allows the children to leave the island of Lost where they were banished with there evil parents and live in Auradon to go to school and live a normal life.
That film was so popular it was no suprise Disney would want to to a sequel. In fact the gimmick with Descendants 2 is that it was actually broadcast on six different channels at the same time. ABC, Disney Channel, Disney XD, Lifetime, Lifetime Movies and Freeform all aired it simultaneously.
Descendants 2 picks up where we left off with the kids living life in Auradon all are happy except for Mal who is questioning if she belongs or if she is truly evil. She finally snaps and returns to the island of Lost where she meets Uma (China Anne McClain), "The Little Mermaid's" Ursulas daughter. Her Freinds all go after her to save her but Ben is kidnapped.amd the others are forced to steal the Fairy Godmother's Magical Wand so I'ma can remove the holding spell on the island.
With some great musical numbers (especially the opening sequence) and a surprisingly action packed final sword battle the film is actually a lot of fun for adults and children both. In fact I think I actually preferred it more than my son.
Overall if you liked part one you will like part 2 if your unfamiliar with the storyline check out part in first then get this one it's a fantastic sequel and a refreshing film in general.
Overall 3 out of 5 Stars!
