Disney Descendants

More Disney villain action is on the way with an upcoming novel based on the Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”. Late last year Disney announced an original movie coming in 2015 titled “Descendants”. The movie will be featuring the teenage children of Disney’s most infamous villains.

Disney Publishing Worldwide has confirmed that they will be launching a novel titled “Isle of The Lost” to be written by bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz (THE WITCHES OF EAST END, BLUE BLOODS). This novel will be a prequel to the story told in the upcoming film that is premiering on the Disney Channel in 2015.

Legend has it that long ago, the most infamous villains were imprisoned on the Isle of the Lost, cut off from the rest of the world as a punishment for their misdeeds. In this dark and dreary place, the likes of Maleficent, Jafar, Cruella de Vil and the Evil Queen reside and evil reigns supreme. Mal, Evie, Jay, and Carlos are their descendants, the teenaged sons and daughters of the Isle’s most villainous characters, and they are coming of age on the Isle of the Lost.

Disney Publishing Worldwide SVP and Group Publisher Jeanne Mosure, with Disney Channel conceived a prequel that would act as a lead up to the new movie.  Mosure Then tasked De la Cruz and her longtime editor, Emily Meehan of Hyperion, to the project of painting the back story for the book with the film’s creative team.

Says de la Cruz, “I’m absolutely thrilled and honored to have been chosen for this fantastic project and to once again be working with Disney Publishing with whom I‘ve had a long and wonderful relationship, and to be partnering with Disney Channel is beyond amazing. The opportunity to write and expand the story with these beloved characters is a dream come true for this Disney aficionado!” Adds Mosure, “It’s a joy to be working synergistically with the brilliant team at Disney Channel, who have helmed some of the highest rated films in cable TV history, and have allowed us to bring our creative engine to the table to help enhance this delightful story featuring classic Disney heritage characters.”

This wickedly delightful book will be swooping in as a hardcover original and goes on sale May 5, 2015.
