Descendants 2 – Now on DVD!
*This post is sponsored by Disney*
My niece has a slight obsession with Descendants. By slight, I mean she knows all the words and dances, her bedding is Descendants, she owns all the dolls… I bought her all that but still. She’s obsessed. When the new movie came out, she had my sister-in-law hold a viewing party for all her friends (and her auntie.)
The movie picks up not long after the first movie ended. Mal is expected to become the perfect royal girlfriend to Ben – but the pressure becomes too much. She returns to the Isle of the Lost, where her archenemy Uma, the daughter of Ursula, has taken her spot as self-proclaimed queen of the run-down town. Uma is resentful that she was not one of the four selected to go to Auradon Prep with the other villain kids. She works with her pirate gang including Captain Hook’s son Harry and Gaston’s son Gil, to work against Ben and Mal and break the barrier between the Isle of the Lost and Auradon, and unleash all the villains and their kids.
The movie has some great new songs, such as “Chillin’ like a Villain.”
Unsurprisingly, my niece loved the movie. I still like the first one better, but I found the second enjoyable. There are a couple of hokey parts, like the talking dog and how people go from wet to dry every other shot at the end of the movie. My favorite part was her dress at the end – trust me, it is beautiful.
Make sure to pick up the movie in stores now. And check out these bloopers before you go!
