Dove Cameron Cast In A Lead Role For “Descendants”


According to a report from Variety, Dove Cameron has been cast as the lead in “Descendants!”

The DCOM will be a contemporary live-action adventure-comedy that taps into Disney’s heritage characters, notably its most evil villains, to introduce their progeny, a modern day generation of teenagers who ultimately question the evil that’s always been in their hearts.

Miss Cameron will play Mal, daughter of Maleficent, the evil witch from 1959′s “Sleeping Beauty.” She’s the ringleader of a group of teenage kids of famed Disney villains who wind up tangling with the good-hearted son of the King and Queen from “Beauty and the Beast,” among others.

The soon-to-be 18 year old plays both Liv and Maddie in Disney Channel’s “Liv and Maddie,” she will be seen next month in the Disney Channel Original Movie “Cloud 9” and has a great start on her music career. Variety has mentioned that she will be singing for this role as well.

Judy Taylor, Disney Channels Worldwide’s senior veep of casting and talent relations said of Dove:

Dove is a multi-dimensional actress whose undeniable charisma allows her to conjure the many facets of Mal, the sharp-edged yet vulnerable daughter of one of Disney’s most wicked villains.

Production is set to begin in the spring and the movie will premiere in 2015. This coming off the heels of Angelina Jolie in the live-action “Maleficent,” which will arrive in theaters next summer.

The “Liv and Maddie” starlet had mentioned some big news coming soon for her and to keep our “eyeballs peeled,” this must be what she was referring to!

Congrats, Dove!
