Meet Disney's "Descendants"!

I was driving in the car with my kids last night, and as we pulled up to the drive-thru window (busy night!), my son suddenly breaks out in this refrain:

     "Don't you want to be EVIL?   Don't you want to be NASTY?  Don't you want to be RUTHLESS?"

He fairly screamed the words, trying to imitate the amazing Kristin Chenowith, who plays Maleficent, in the song "Evil like Me" from Disney Channel's new movie Descendants.



I can only hope and pray the girl at McDonald's is familiar with the movie.  Otherwise she might be wondering just what it is I teach my kids!
What am I teaching my kids?  I'm sharing my love for all things Disney with them.  My kids have grown up with Disney, get to go to Disneyland every few years, and seem to have inherited my love and excitement for whatever Disney's got up its sleeves!
On July 31st, Disney's Descendants aired on the Disney Channel.  It is a really fun musical movie, detailing the stories of the sons and daughters of some of Disney's most famous heroes and villains.
We absolutely love this story in our family!  I bought my daughter the book Isle of the Lost, so she was really excited for the movie to come out.  It is fun to see where some of my favorite characters ended up, and interesting to think about what their children might be like
.
I have kids from ages 6-10, boys and a girl, and they all really enjoy the movie, as well as listening to the soundtrack.  You can buy both at Walmart.
You can also buy the Descendants fashion dolls at Walmart.  I picked out Mal and Evie for my kids.  
Mal is the main character, a conflicted daughter of (who else) Maleficent, 
while Evie is the daughter of the Evil Queen from Snow White.
As soon as we got them, my kids insisted we turn on the soundtrack so they could dance around and re-enact scenes of the movie with the new dolls.  I just wish they had some of the boy dolls when I was shopping.  It would've been fun to have Carlos, son of Cruella De Ville, and Jay, son of Jafar.

Do you have to be evil if you're born to a Villain?  Does being born to a Disney Princess automatically make you good?  These are interesting and fun discussions to have with your family after watching the movie.  Anything that gives us quality time together is a win in my book.
If you're a Disney fan, you need Descendants in your family.  Who is your favorite Disney Villain and why?
