Well here is the first look at Kristin Chenoweth (‘Glee’, ‘The Pink Panther’) in her role as ‘Maleficent in the upcoming live action television show ‘Descendants’. We’ve known that Disney has been working on ‘Descendants‘ for awhile which is a new show that will focus on the children of classic Disney villains.
As Chenoweth has had a lot of experience working with both music and comedy, this could be a great role for her. Not only that but she is used to playing a witch as she did an outstanding job as Galinda in Broadway’s ‘Wicked,’ which I was fortunate enough to see. In the first image you’ll see below, it seems as if she is up to know good (shocking I know!) with Dove Cameron (‘Liv and Maddie’,’Cloud 9′) who plays her daughter Mal standing behind her.
Are you a Disney villain fanatic that can’t wait to check out the latest show? Do you think after the amazing job that Angelina Jolie just did at portraying the character that Chenoweth will be able to pull it off as successfully? Share your thoughts below!
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?
Descendants will air on Disney Channel in 2015.
