Disney will bring some of their most beloved characters together all in one place for an upcoming Disney Channel original movie, but it won't be the timeless heroes that are being concentrated on for this upcoming movie, but rather the villains who will take centre stage.

High School Musical's Kenny Ortega will direct
As initially reported by D23, the story will be set in the present day, in an idyllic kingdom ruled by Beast and Belle from Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. There, the King and Queen's kind-hearted teenaged son is poised to take the throne, but he has a few changes lined up and in his first proclamation he decrees that the troublesome offspring of well-know villains Cruella De Vil, Maleficent, the Evil Queen, and Jafar all be given a second chance at redemption. Their respective, nefarious parents have been imprisoned on a forbidden island with all the other villains, sidekicks, evil step-mothers and step-sisters from the Disney back catalogue and their children are left on the periphery of society, until now. These villainous descendants (called Carlos, Mal, Evvie and Jay, respectively) are granted access into the kingdom so they may attend prep school alongside the offspring of several iconic Disney heroes, including the Fairy Godmother, Sleeping Beauty, Rapunzel and Mulan, but the question remains over the villainous children and their actions.
