OK – it seems we aren’t quite done with the musicals yet. Disney’s Descendants 2 is back in it’s full singing and dancing glory.
The story deepens in the music-driven sequel to the global smash hit “Descendants,” as the teenage sons and daughters of Disney’s most infamous villains — Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay (also known as Villain Kids or VKs) — try to find their place in idyllic Auradon.
When the pressure to be royally perfect becomes too much for Mal, she returns to her rotten roots on the Isle of the Lost where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma, still resentful over not being selected by Ben to go to Auradon Prep with the other Villain Kids, stirs her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains imprisoned on the Isle, once and for all.
Review: Descendants 2
I’m going to completely come clean here and tell you that musicals are not at all my favourite thing. However, if anyone was going to win me over, it would be Disney.
The positive messages in all of this singing and dancing come through loud and clear. Be the best version of yourself that you can be. You past and where you come from do not define your future. You can move beyond your circumstances without forgetting where you came from. And never, ever try to be anyone other than yourself.
The storyline actually employs a couple of plot twists and leaves the franchise entirely open to another sequel. So, spoiler alert – I can completely see another DVD on the horizon.
