“Descendants 3 will be the biggest in the scope of all the previous movies,” Kenny Ortega told EW in February this year. “Everything has been scaled to deliver an epic story. The characters, the sets, the costumes, the dance numbers are all bigger, better and the baddest!”

The four villain kids have to prove that they are free from the evils of their parents. ‘Descendants’ was followed by the second movie in the series, ‘Descendants 2’ which debuted on Disney Channel on July 21, 2017.
