Surely by now you have heard about the Disney Channel original movie coming out called Disney Descendants. The live-action made-for-tv film follows the children of some of the most infamous Disney villains of all-time and has been quite a hot topic amongst Disney fans over the last few weeks. Well, there is a prequel novel, called The Isle of the Lost, which will tell you everything you need to know about the events before the movie, and you can pick-it up now to prepare yourself for this movie event which will air this summer:



The spellbinding prequel to the Disney Channel movie event!

Evil tree. Bad Apple?

Twenty years ago, all the evil villains were banished from the kingdom of Auradon to the Isle of the Lost–a dark and dreary place protected by a force field that makes it impossible for them to leave. Stripped of their magical powers, the villains now live in total isolation, forgotten by the world.

Mal learns from her mother, Maleficent, that the key to true darkness, the Dragon’s Eye, is located inside her scepter in the forbidden fortress on the far side of the island. The eye is cursed, and whoever retrieves it will be knocked into a deep sleep for a thousand years. But Mal has a plan to capture it. She’ll just need a little help from her “friends.” In their quest for the Dragon’s Eye, these four kids begin to realize that just because you come from an evil family tree, being good ain’t so bad.

  • Chef Skinner from Ratatouille, because he’s deceitful. Nice to your face in a rude way, but conniving behind your back. The kind of jerk I love to see lose in the end. :)

    By the way, I’d love the prize pack as a Mothers Day gift surprise for my wife.

  • Maleficent is my favorite villain. Simple enough I like her evil ways, as she can turn from a witch into a dragon. I like her as the ?

  • My favorite Disney villain is Captain Hook, because who doesn’t love a pirate? He lives in that gray area of life being the best leader he can be to his crew and fulfilling their purpose, while still battling his nemesis with that delicious touch of evil. He’s flamboyant like any good Pirate Captain should be, ruthless yet a gentleman. His character has had great development in subsequent works making Hook fun to watch in just about every retelling of the Peter Pan story that I’ve ever read or scene. I love Captain Hook!

  • I’d have to go with Jeffrey Katzenberg. Jeffrey was a high ranking Disney executive, and then (like a soviet spy) he left the company and stole the ideas he heard and made cheap copies of them at his new studio “Dreamworks”. If that isn’t pure evil, I don’t know what is.

  • My favorite villain is Mother Gothel. She’s hilarious and her hair is similar to mine. :)

  • There can be no other but the original Disney villain – Pete! (That’s Mr. Badass to you!!) I mean just look at his resume – he’s a kidnapper, an extortionist, a greedy sleazeball, a slumlord, a thief, a spy… just an all-around bad guy. And his appearance – slovenly, missing teeth, always chomping on cigar, and you know he reeks too. He’s the epitome of a villain. What’s not to love?

  • It’s all about Ursula for me, she is mysterious, crafty, and unfortunately knows a little magic. She alludes to a past in King Triton’s Kingdom but gives no specifics. She’s bad to the bone and really doesn’t want to be good. I like the no excuses attitude she personifies. She will cut a fish and not blink twice … it’s a talent she’s always possessed.

  • My favorite Disney villain is Chef Louis from The Little Mermaid. He can sing, he can dance and he can throw a mean cleaver. Since Chef Louis is French, it would have been great for him to have a cameo in Beauty and the Beast, maybe as a line cook at the tavern.

  • I’ll go with Cruella de Ville–such a nasty evil plan, and it’s great fun to cheer on the puppies against her!

  • Maleficent is my favorite! She is a classic, extra points for turning into a dragon!

  • Ursula! She is straight forward with who she is and makes no apologies. Plus who doesn’t like Octopus Sushi?

  • Ursula is my favorite… I’ve always wanted to be an octopus….. I could do so much more with 8 hands and arms!!! I can’t count how many times I’ve said, “I’d love to be an octopus right now” Besides, just being able to say what you mean in a blunt fashion… incredible. Who wouldn’t want to be an octopus??? ;)

  • I would have to say my favorite villain(s) are the British and Governor Ratcliffe. They are true villains based off real life villains. They took land, killed natives, and exhorted true evil upon the Americas and the Native Americans. If thats not a villain I don’t know what is? Id love to grab this pack for my sister for mothers days since this is her first year as a Mom :)

  • I’m going to have to say Maleficent because she is one of the original wicked witches and she does turn into a dragon :)

  • The Trolls from Frozen, they’re so villainous that no one even recognized them as the villain. Elsa’s power might run amok? Not without the Trolls telling her. Hans turns evil? Not before the Trolls said they’ll take care of Anna not being single for Kristof. Trolls, pure evil.

  • I like Jiminy Cricket. He quits being a wooden puppet’s conscience- literally a FAKE boy’s BFF – after, like, 24 hours. What a baddie.

  • Like so many others, Maleficent. She is graceful, elegant, and she is absolutely stunning! If I ever personally work at Disney as a face character (yes, it’s doubtful) then I would audition to be her – I just feel like it fits! Is that crazy? When I first met her this past October, I just about lost it. I also have a plush who has been to every Disney park I’ve visited for the past seven years.

  • I would like to say Captain Hook because I just adore pirates! Especially the cunning, witty pirate who tries to get at Peter Pan and spoil his fun! :) Plus I’ve seen Pirate Fairy and saw how he became thee captain hook!

  • I don’t know if I can still enter but I love Ursula and Hades because they seem the most sassiest and the funnest villains to hang out with.
