If you happen to be one of those eager fans patiently waiting for Disney Channel’s Original Movie, “Descendants,” to hit the screen, like me, here is something that will for sure make you want to see the movie even more. Before the film’s story begins, did you know that there is a prequel? That’s right, a story before a story. And trust me, it is a great one.
In order to prepare for the movie, the book “The Isle of the Lost” by bestselling author Melissa de la Cruz, will lead you on an adventure. This book will bring to life some recognizable characters as well as some new faces. Disney Publishing sent us a sample to read of the book and it is safe to say that the movie is going to be awesome since the prequel book was so good.
Just to give a little glimpse as to what the book entails, imagine this…twenty years ago, some of the most evil villains were banished from the Kingdom of Auradon and sent to Isle of the Lost. This place was known for being dark and having a powerful force field that prevented anyone from leaving. On top of that, all the powers of the villains were taken away.
With the idea of being forgotten, how could they make it back to civilization? Would their evil persona last after all these years?
In this prequel book, your answers await. This book is set to hit shelves on May 5. That means there will be plenty of time to read up before “Descendants” is to air on Disney Channel later this year.
