'Descendants' Celebrates 5 Years Since It First Premiered!

Flashback Friday!

It has been exactly FIVE years since the first Descendants movie premiered on Disney Channel on July 31, 2015.

The Kenny Ortega-directed DCOM starred Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, Cameron Boyce, Sarah Jeffery, Mitchell Hope, Brenna D’Amico, Kristin Chenoweth and more.

Descendants brought us the songs “Rotten to the Core,” “Evil Like Me,” “Did I Mention,” “If Only,” “Be Our Guest,” “Set It Off,” and “Believe.”

Here’s a synopsis: Driven by exciting music and performance, the story is set in the idyllic kingdom of Auradon where Ben, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Beauty and the Beast), is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay, the trouble-making offspring of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil and Jafar, who have been imprisoned on the forbidden Isle of the Lost for 20 years.

These villainous descendants are allowed into Auradon for the first time to attend prep school alongside the teenage progeny of Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan. Only time will tell if these evil teens follow in the footsteps of their wicked parents!

Dove Cameron Reveals Her Dream Co-Star & Has Already Worked With Her -- Twice!

We all have big dreams on just who we’d want to work with if ever given the chance — and Dove Cameron is no different.

In her Modeliste mag cover story, the Descendants 2 actress revealed a ton of stars that she’s dying to work with.

“My two male actors that I’m obsessed with are Stanley Tucci and David Tennant,” she says. “I love them so much. I feel like I know them. I’m like a fangirl. I’m obsessed with them.”

Another one is “Lee Pace. I fell in love with him during his Pushing Daisies days. That kind of comes fast. Then for women, I love Jessica Lange. Who else do I love? Obviously Meryl Streep.”

But her ultimate dream co-star is actually Kristin Chenoweth!

“[Kristin] was my main hero that I really wanted to meet and spend time with,” Dove reveals. “We’ve obviously built a really incredible working relationship. I want to work with her for the rest of my life. It’s a lot.”

If you didn’t know Dove and Kristin played mother and daughter not only in Descendants, but also Hairspray Live!
