Did you happen to catch the Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants” this July on Disney Channel? If not, you’re missing out, or rather, your kids are. Descendants has turned out to be cable tv’s fifth highest-rated movie of all time.
As fan fever for Disney’s “Descendants” grows around the world, a sequel script has been commissioned from the movie’s screenwriters Sara Parriott and Josann McGibbon who will also serve as executive producers on the project, “Descendants 2” (working title), it was announced today by Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide.
“Descendants” Fan Event – California
On Saturday, October 17, the stars of Disney’s “Descendants” including Dove Cameron (Disney Channel’s “Liv and Maddie”), Cameron Boyce (Disney XD’s “Gamer’s Guide to Pretty Much Everything,” Disney Channel’s “Jessie”), Booboo Stewart (“X-Men Days of Future Past”) and Sofia Carson, and Kenny Ortega will celebrate with fans during an on-stage, music and dance-filled event at Downtown Disney District, Disneyland Resort, in Anaheim, California. I definitely advise you to arrive super early to get a good seat!
