The film, being produced by North Shore Studios, will star Dove Cameron (Liv and Maddie), Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga), Sofia Carson, and Mitchell Hope, and will be released sometime next year. The project has been titled Descendants, working title Off The Island, as reported by Global News.
There are more expected casting announcements in the near future.
Global gives a succinct synopsis of what the film is about:
“Descendants is set in a present-day kingdom where the son of Beauty And The Beast‘s royal couple is set to take the throne. He offers redemption to the imprisoned offspring of villains from 101 Dalmatians, Sleeping Beauty, Snow White and Aladdin.
Enrolled in prep school with the offspring of Disney heroes like the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan, the trouble-making teens must decide if they want to follow in their villainous parents’ footsteps.”
If that doesn’t get the inner Disney-fanatic in you excited, nothing will!
