Tenzing Norgay Trainor
Ben, son of Belle and the once selfish Beast, is poised to become next on the throne, however he is not ready and allows the villain kids from the Isle of the Lost to attend Auradon Prep. From there, things go way down hill.
Each child of the Lost (Evie, Mal, Jay, Carlos) have a design on the back of their beginning costumes. Mal- A green heart formed by dragons. Evie- A bedazzled crown. Jay- An orange snake or serpent. Carlos- Crossed black and white dog bones. They all are symbols of their parent's and their fairy tales. See more »

[In Remedial Goodness 101]
If someone gives you a crying baby, do you a: curse it, b: lock it in a tower, c: give it a bottle, or d: carve out its heart?
[Evie raises her hand]
What was the second one again?
[smiles, tries not to look disappointed]
Oh, okay. Anybody else?

After the promotion this Disney Original Movie got, I had to go on great lengths to watch it.
The movie reminded me a lot of the 90's Disney Originals and held a familiar sensation which I will attribute it to HalloweenTown. The notions were childish and simple but totally in tune with the Disney Originals tradition which can be seen when Magic and Fantasy is involved.
The movie from the perspective of an adult or an overly mature teen might miss the point. Yes, this movie is not great but it managed to convince us that the silliness of the Golden Age of Disney Animation was not forgotten. On the contrary somewhere the Disney villains settled down and had kids. As a 90's kid I have to admit that I feel somewhat satisfied.
The plot is simple and the musical parts were not half bad but will pass with difficulty in the D.O.M. Hall of Fame as High School musical and HalloweenTown did. I believe that Disney could pull off a great series with this material which would have been perhaps hilarious but as a movie it's something less than Cinderella 1997 of Rodgers and Hammerstein but more of the last attempts to follow the last decade's magic/ghost/zombie and vampire trade.
Therefore, if you think about watching it beware. It may seem great and nostalgic but absurd on several points. In my opinion the plot at some points had great thoughts, badly put together but that's just my opinion. Young children and teens will probably like it but their parents will be a tad disappointed. This is an attempt to lure the young generation back to Disney's animation and live action traditions but parents and young adults alike will be emotionally conflicted.
