Storyline

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 from The Little Mermaid, 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.

Trivia

As of late 2016, Dove Cameron (Mal) and Thomas Doherty (Harry Hook) are dating in real life, following Cameron's break up with her former co-star Ryan McCartan. They even appeared together in the last few episodes of The Lodge (2016)'s 2nd Season. See more »

Goofs

The first film said that Mal's inability to swim had to do with the island being completely surrounded by the barrier, but there is significant accessible waterfront available to the islanders in this film. Presumably, Mal would have been prevented from accessing this area, but it is an exception to what was previously stated (but then, Mal doesn't control the island and might have limited information as to the extent of the barrier).

This is quite a good children's film. (Bare in mind that I'm grading this by children's TV movie standards and it is what it is. I'm not comparing this to Citizen Kane.) In fact, I'd say this is almost as good as the first one.

The cast is still having fun and the characters still work. The main plot about Mal trying to find herself is a bit predictable, but does the job. I actually found Evie's side story about her trying to leave the past behind to be more engaging and heartfelt.

What really makes the sequel are the antagonists who feel more complete than the villainous parents of the first film. Gaston's son plays the clichéd dumb villain, but he does it so well you won't mind, this is fine family entertainment that while not perfect does make you feel about the characters.ind. Uma as the main villain is surprisingly three-dimensional. You can see that her evil is built through hurt and anger. She also has style and is not a mustache- twirler. But to be honest, it's her right-hand man Harry Hook who steals the show. He's a bit of a nut and steals each scene he's in with flair.

The sets for the Isle of the Lost and the costumes in this are a lot of fun. Very colorful. The musical numbers are one of the biggest draw of the film. With the possible exception of the final one, all the songs are good. (These are modern pop songs, mind you and if they're not your thing then they're not your thing.) The choreography is really impressive.

Compared to the original, I'd say the plot is stronger and more consistent, but the original had the stronger moments.

Overall, this is a fun film for the family that had more effort given into it than you'd suspect.
