My 2 youngest girls ages 8 and 9 LOVED this sequel. Descendants 2 starts off with some w-i-c-k-e-d music! The characters are still at Auradon Academy. Their new life is chafing their old life. It's a story about self discovery and acceptance of others. However, it's told through some awesome songs, great dancing, choreography, and a talented cast. There is humor, drama, and things to think about. Overall, it's a nonstop Disney celebration of self love, acceptance, and friendships all set to snappy, cool dancing music.
Kids thought it was well done. Typical Disney version of good vs. evil. ( Spoiler Alert *Dark enough to keep plot turning , twisting, / Light enough that no one takes it too seriously - evil back to good with each change in lead characters hair style ! ) Great Dance numbers and special effects.
