  • Descendants moves quickly through its two-hour-long running time, builds momentum off of a handful of peppy tunes, and delivers a colorful confection that's sure to impress the younger crowd.

  • The movie boasts a stronger, more assured story than most of the recent youth-oriented live-action musicals Disney has offered, with plenty of brightly colored bells and whistles as well as songs that range from Broadway to rap.

  • Will Descendants create the next Zac Efron or Vanessa Hudgens? Of the crowd, [Dove] Cameron seems to have the most star potential.

    September 9, 2019 | Full Review…
  • Thanks to winning performances by [Dove] Cameron, [Kristin]Chenoweth and others, it's a flick the family can sit down and enjoy.

  • It's no High School Musical, but the songs are catchy, and the junior villains are worth rooting for.

    September 9, 2019 | Rating: B | Full Review…
  • The lesson of Descendants is to choose love instead of hate. Those are definitely lessons worth learning, even if they are dressed in song and dance numbers and simplistic dialogue.
