Once upon a time in a land far, far away is a whole other world of Disney magic! When Belle and the Beast married, they united all the surrounding kingdoms into the United States of Auradon and imprisoned the villains on a remote island known as the Isle of the Lost. Protected by a barrier that prevents all magic, the inhabitants begrudgingly eke out an existence and raise their families, plotting for the chance to escape and regain their former glory.
Mal, Evie, Jay and Carlos are four descendants of these villains, raised under the banner of evil and striving to survive as they’ve been taught. While the children of the heroes get to live in peace and tranquility, Prince Ben – who is soon to be crowned king – decides that his first proclamation as ruler will be to give a select few of the kids from the Isle of the Lost a chance to redeem themselves and prove that they are more than the sins of their parents.
Seeking this chance for glory, the villain kids agree to attend Auradon Prep while plotting to steal the Fairy Godmother’s Magic Wand and free their parents from captivity. Will the rebel teens follow in their rotten parents’ footsteps or will they choose to embrace their innate goodness and save the kingdom?
