In present-day Auradon, Ben, the teenaged son of King Adam “Beast” and Queen Belle, is poised to take the throne. He offers a chance for redemption to the trouble-making teenaged descendants of defeated villains exiled to the remote Isle of the Lost. The villains’ descendants have been granted permission to attend prep school in the kingdom with the Disney heroes’ kids.
My take on this movie: All I’ve got to say is that this movie was sooo good! Okay so this was my second time watching this movie. Once before I read the book and the second time after I read the book. The book was a prologue to the movie and this movie sort of starts right where the book ended. Granted I said sort of because we have to go through Mal talking and bringing us into with what was going through in Auradon if we haven’t read the book.
Sure some people say that this movie sucks but to someone that has watched the old Disney and some of the new Disney that this movie is really good. I love all the songs that was in the movie along with the acting. I love the way that they changed ethnicity of some of the characters in the movie so that it works well with the kids nowadays.
I don’t know for about some other people but I always wondered what happened after each happily ever after that happened in the movies. Now with this movie I can squash that wondering since I have it. I love all of the characters in the movies because they are all different.
The thing that I love is the way that the book tied in even more with the movie. Prince Ben and Mal both have visions of the other in both different locations than of where they were. Mal had a vision of her and Ben’s first date in Auradon and Ben had a vision of Mal helping him up in Isle of the Lost. I also like how Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos’s kind of friendship transferred into the movie.
If anyone asked me about this movie I will say that it is a five butterflies and that they should really watch this movie after they read the book!
