Earlier this year I shared coverage for an amazing press trip, including sitting down with Descendants Director Kenny Ortega! Watching the film there at Disney Channel – I knew Descendants was going to be a big hit! And it was – coming in as cable tv’s fifth highest-rated movie of all time.
Descendants sequel in the works:
“Domestically and globally – ‘Descendants’ has already become one of the biggest entertainment properties of the year,” shares Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer, Disney Channels Worldwide. With that said, Disney announced Descendants will have a sequel!
