The gnarled family trees of Descendants — Disney Channel’s upcoming movie about the children of classic villains — have sprouted several new branches with the additions of Kathy Najimy (Veep), Wendy Raquel Robinson (The Game) and two others, TVLine has learned.
Najimy will play Snow White‘s Evil Queen, the mother of Evie (Sofia Carson), while Robinson will play Cruella de Vil, the mother of Carlos (Jessie‘s Cameron Boyce).
In addition to Najimy and Robinson…
* Maz Jobrani (Better Off Ted) will play Jafar, father of Jay (Booboo Stewart, Good Luck Charlie).
* Melanie Paxson (American Dad) will play the Fairy Godmother, mom of Jane (Brenna D’Amico).
These newcomers join Glee‘s Kristin Chenoweth, previously announced as Descendants‘ Maleficent, mother of Mal (Liv and Maddie‘s Dove Cameron).
