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

Is possibly a prequel to the animated Descendants: Wicked World (2015) shorts, since none of the characters introduced in that are featured in Descendants 2 (2017), and this film takes place not long after the first film. See more »

Goofs

This movie takes place six month after the first "Descendants". Yet in both movies it is summer. Enchanted country or not, they should have more than one season. See more »

It really bothers me Disney isn't doing a better job with this awesome idea
23 July 2017 | by stereo_1999See all my reviews

First off I love the Idea some of the characters of these movies, but the execution is always lacking. Disney made bank off of the first one but it doesn't feel like they put any more money and effort into this one.

First off the CGI is completely HORRIBLE!!!! It really took me out of the show every time there was any CGI.

Second the "Costume Designers" should be fired as a lot of the colors clash and the clothes never seem to fit correctly.

The Acting and story was below what they should be aiming for as some areas felt really forced or unnatural. Cameron Boyce seemed to do OK but non of them can do great with this story.

It also doesn't tie into the Wicked world series as non of the new characters from that show were even in the movie. I also find Wicked Worlds story to be more interesting.

Now on to the singing.... Why was 99% of this show completely auto-tuned??? I know auto-tune can have a cool effect when used sparingly but they used it to the point that ruined songs!

The sets were very basic with horrible lighting.Why does this feel like a good high school drama set?

I also really wish they would add some better characters. Dopeys son feels forced there was no need for chad (the second son to the throne). I would love to see some of the wicked world cast and maybe the mad hatters daughter/son. Someone that is a little mad but in a good way. Pouring tea in a inopportune time or buttering a watch or celebrating someones unbirthday. There seems to be so many opportunities that they missed with the character choice. I also think they need to do something to the Beasts son Ben. Not only is his actor horrible but is character is very bland. Maybe get under a curse that changes how he looks so they can get a better actor and change his personality.

Please Disney I want to love this but your cheapness isn't helping. Just reboot it into a full blown movie and get good people to work on it. These actors could probably do a lot more if you give them something better. Shoot Booboo Stewart was actually good in the twilight Movies (not that I liked twilight that much).
