Did you know that many of the adults in the fantasy universe, including the Evil Queen, Maleficent and Jafar, are also parents? In this new offering, they have to deal with their own kids, who happen to have inherited their parents’ penchant for mischief.

The teaser introduces Jay (Booboo Stewart), the son of Jafar from “Alladin,” who’s vice is stealing; Evie (Sofia Carson), the daughter of the Evil Queen from “Snow White,” who lives by the principle that “beauty is pain;” Carlos (Cameron Boyce), the son of Cruella De Vil from “The 101 Dalmatians,” who has an abnormal fear of dogs; and Mal (Dove Cameron), the daughter of Maleficent from “Sleeping Beauty,” who uses her magic to make everyone’s life hellish.

The kids live in exile in secluded island with their parents being villains and all. The moms and dads are played by  Kristin Chenoweth (Maleficent), Wendy Raquel Robinson (Cruella de Vil), Kathy Najimy (Evil Queen) and Jafar (Maz Jobrani). But in a special decree by the new prince, the kids are then thrown into a world they will find most challenging: High School.

Forced to mingle with other kids, these batch of misfits have to learn to either stick to the ideals their villain parents have taught them or discover something new and different from what they know. Will they embrace their roots or adapt  the goodness of the world?
