The theme this July on Disney Channel is “offspring and offshoots.”
Kicking things off at 8/7c is Descendants, which centers on the teenage sons and daughters of the most infamous Disney villains. Directed and choreographed by Kenny Ortega (High School Musical), the movie stars Kristin Chenoweth and Dove Cameron (Liv & Maddie) as Maleficent and her daughter Mal; Maz Jobrani and Booboo Stewart (X-Men: Days of Future Past) as Jafar and his son Jay; Wendy Raquel Robinson and Cameron Boyce (Jessie) as Cruella and her son Carlos; and Kathy Najimy and newcomer Sofia Carson as the Evil Queen and her daughter Evie. Watch a new trailer below.
Premiering immediately after the TV-movie is Bunk’d, starring Jessie‘s Peyton List, Karan Brar and Skai Jackson. The series premiere finds the Ross siblings (sans Luke) leaving their New York penthouse for Camp Kikiwaka, the rustic Maine retreat where their parents met as teenagers. Miranda May (Liv and Maddie) and newcomers Nina Lu and Kevin Quinn also star.
