Disney's DESCENDANTS (review here) has been a massive hit here at Rock Father HQ - from the Disney Channel original film itself, to the fashions inspired by the cast. I was lucky enough to have visited with filmmaker/choreographer Kenny Ortega (HOCUS POCUS) this summer, and I had a chance to catch up with both Dove Cameron (Mal, daughter of Maleficent) and Cameron Boyce (Carlos, son of Cruella de Vil) on the sets of LIV & MADDIE and GAMER'S GUIDE TO PRETTY MUCH EVERYTHING, respectively. My girls (and many of their friends) are DESCENDANTS-obsessed, and today comes rock-solid proof (after a light announcement at the D23 Expo) that DESCENDANTS 2 is happening. Here's the official word...

"I was so petrified because the 'twin' thing was sort of something that just happened," recalls Dove Cameron about the early days of shooting LIV & MADDIE, the hit Disney Channel series that finds the 19-year-old actress playing the dual title roles.  "They were like, 'by the way, you're going to be playing twins -  we'll see you on Monday!,' and I was like Ha-Ha - I'm gonna get fired. I'm gonna lose my job. They're gonna choose somebody else." Originally cast to play a single role on a show called BITS & PIECES, Cameron found herself returning to work after a nine-month break between pilot and pick-up as twins in a show that had been completely re-worked from top to bottom, premiering in 2013 and becoming one of Disney's most-watched original series. Nearly three seasons in, and the "twin thing" is still a challenge, but it's all a part of the gig. "I've never gotten confused," says Cameron, "but as the seasons go on, [sometimes] I'll walk into a scene, and I'll be like 'Wait, who am I?"

Moments ago, Disney's DESCENDANTS (read my review here) finished its debut airing on Disney Channel, introducing audiences to The United States of Auradon, and the children of some iconic Disney Villains (and some heroic counterparts). The musical from Director/Choreographer Kenny Ortega (read my interview here) is already blowing up social media (#Descendants has been trending Globally tonight), and if you're wanting to relive those musical moments - you're in luck! My friends at Disney have just uploaded every musical number to the Disney Music VEVO Channel on YouTube, and I've assembled them into a handy playlist that's viewable below! But that's not all - want to own the music? The DESCENDANTS Soundtrack is now available from Amazon and iTunes.
