Disney Channel's 'Descendants' Casts Heros & Villains with Kristin Chenoweth & More
With the Disney Channel’s upcoming movie, Descendents, set to premiere in 2015, the villainous cast has finally been settled. The film, which focuses on a present-day kingdom where the Beast and Belle are royalty and the evil villains we’ve all grown up with are offered a chance at redemption for their equally villainous children, has found all of its villains through some pretty recognizable celebrity names. Take a look at Disney's good guys and bad guys.

Wendy Raquel Robinson

Which Fairy Godmother you may ask? Well, the one and only Fairy Godmother from Cinderella. Melanie Paxson, from Saving Mr. Banks, is bringing a lighter side to this film.

Booboo Stewart, who first gained his day in the spotlight as Seth Clearwater from the Twilight saga, is playing Jay in Descendants, in addition to many other movies he is working on this year. You may also remember him as the hunk Warpath in the recently premiered film, X-Men: Days of Future Past.
Disney Channel star, Cameron Boyce, from the TV show Jessie, should feel right at home playing Carlos in this Disney Channel Original Movie.

Sofia Carson, who had a small role in one episode of Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally, is set to play Evvie.
