From Alice in Wonderland to Maleficent to the upcoming Cinderella, live-action twists on classic stories are all the rage at the moment.  However, these redos won’t just be relegated to the big screen, as the Disney Channel is getting in on the action with the upcoming TV movie Descendants.  The film reimagines the offspring of famous Disney characters like Maleficent, Jafar, and even Cruella de Vil, bringing them together in a prep school environment.  On the adult side, we have Kristen Chenoweth playing Maleficent and Kathy Najimy as the Evil Queen, but today Disney Channel has released a first look image of Maleficent’s daughter, Jafar’s son, Cruella’s son, and the Evil Queen’s daughter. So take a look at Dove Cameron, Booboo Stewart, Cameron Boyce, and Sofia Carlson in the roles, respectively.  Descendents premieres on the Disney Channel sometime in 2015.

Check out the image below, via TV Line.  Clockwise from bottom left, the characters are Maleficent’s daughter Mal, Jafar’s son Jay, Cruella’s son Carlos, and the Evil Queen’s daughter Evie.
