My Thoughts

I give the Disney’s Descendants 2 DVD a B.

Chances are if you are a fan of Descendants you might have already seen Descendants 2 as it aired on the Disney Channel on July 21st.  If you love collecting DVDs and Blu-rays you’ll definitely want this to be a part of your collection.  Unfortunately, this isn’t being released on Blu-ray but the quality of this film did not falter.

I’m not afraid to admit that I actually enjoyed this film.  I don’t normally like musicals.  In fact, I hate them but with this one the music fit right in.  It wasn’t over bearing.  There wasn’t a constant stream of breaking-out in song while you’re doing everyday tasks or singing about the love of your life.  The songs actually added to the energy of the film and matched the character’s personalities. The music drew you in and gave the characters something you could relate to.

I loved Mal (played by Dove Cameron).  I liked her more when she decided to go back to her true self.  That’s when you could see she was comfortable in her own skin and not trying to hide who she is.  The cast did a wonderful job at portraying their characters.  I could really picture them as the kids of some of our favorite villains.

All in all, Descendants 2 is a great film to watch with the entire family.  Not only will your kids love it, you might enjoy it as well!  Catch Disney’s Descendants 2 out on DVD Tuesday, August 15th!
