We’re presuming that Disney spent all of its money for Maleficent clothing on the Angelina Jolie.While Kristin Chenoweth’s version above looks pretty cool = and gives us our look at her as the character in the upcoming Disney Channel movie The Descendants – she does slightly look like she got the eBay knock-off costume.
The film’s synopsis gives us a taste for what to expect from this Disney Channel movie: ‘In a present day idyllic kingdom, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Disney’s iconic “Beauty and the Beast”) is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to the trouble-making offspring of Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen and Jafar who have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters.
‘These villainous descendants (Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are allowed into the kingdom to attend prep school alongside the offspring of iconic Disney heroes, including Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan. However, the evil teens face a dilemma. Should they follow in their nefarious parents’ footsteps and help all the villains regain power or embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom.’
The pic shows Chenoweth as Maleficent opposite Dove Cameron as her daughter, Mal.
Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, Cameron Boyce, Keegan Connor Tracy, Dan Payne, Mitchell Hope, Maz Jobrani, Wendy Raquel Robinson and Kathy Najimy also star, with Kenny Ortega (High School Musical) directing. It should air next year.
