We know that the Disney Channel’s upcoming Original Movie Descendants will feature some familiar Disney characters and their offspring, and now we know who will play some of them! Yesterday (May 1), Disney announced Broadway star Kristin Chenoweth to play Sleeping Beauty villain Maleficent, who they say will be nothing like Angelina Jolie’s interpretation of the witchy character.

Descendants will also star Liv and Maddie’s Dove Cameron as Maleficent’s daughter, Mal, Twilight actor Booboo Stewart as Aladdin villain Jafar’s son, Jay, and Grown Ups actor Cameron Boyce as Cruella de Ville’s son, Carlos.

The Hollywood Reporter unveiled new details about the plot along with today’s exciting announcement: “Descendants is set in a present-day idyllic kingdom, with the benevolent teenage son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle), Ben, poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal), the Evil Queen (Evie) and Jafar (Jay), who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with the other villains, sidekicks, evil stepmothers and stepsisters.”

Can’t wait for what these talented actors have in store for us! Who are you most excited to see?
