Watch: Disney Releases First 6 Minutes of ‘Descendants’

If you can’t wait another week for “Descendants,” you’re in luck. On Thursday, Disney released the first six minutes of the upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie, which premieres Friday, July 31.

The movie from director Kenny Ortega tells the story of the teenage children of Disney’s most infamous villains — Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Jafar and the Evil Queen.

Kristin Chenoweth stars as Maleficent, and “Liv and Maddie” star Dove Cameron plays her daughter, Mal. The rest of the cast is rounded out by more Disney family faces — Sofia Carson (“Austin & Ally”) plays Evie, the daughter of the Evil Queen (Kathy Najimy); Cameron Boyce (“Jessie”) plays Carlos, Cruella de Vil’s (Wendy Raquel Robinson) son; and and Booboo Stewart (“Good Luck Charlie,” “Twilight”) plays Jay, the son of Jafar (Maz Jobrani).
