Maleficent and her daughter in Descendants

DStv Compact and DStv Extra customers will have the opportunity to watch the Descendants on Disney Channel.

To celebrate the exclusive launch of the highly anticipated Disney Channel Original Movie, Descendants, Disney Channel (DStv channel 303) will be open to DStv Extra and DStv Compact customers from Tuesday, 8 September to Monday, 28 September 2015.

Descendants is a musical fantasy television movie featuring the children of Disney’s most infamous villains. Set in present-day magical kingdom of Auradon, the story follows Prince Ben, the son of King Beast and Queen Belle, who’s poised to take over the throne.

His first official proclamation is to give redemption to the children of defeated and exiled villains and give them a chance to live in Auradon. The teenage children of Maleficent, Cruella de Vil, Jafar and the Evil Queen are then granted permission to attend prep school alongside the kids of Disney heroes’ like Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan.

What follows is a classic Disney superhero vs supervillain showdown. Will these children follow in their parent’s evil footsteps or will they choose to embrace their goodness and save the kingdom? Starring Dove Cameron, Cameron Boyce, Booboo Stewart and Sofia Carson, Descendants will premiere on Disney Channel (DStv channel 303) on Friday, 18 September at 17:00.

DStv customers can also look forward to the launch of a new season of the hit telenovela, Violetta (Season 3), which premieres on Monday, 21 September at 16:10. This will be followed by Disney Channel’s first South African local production I ♥ Violetta on Friday, 25 September at 17:00. I ♥ Violetta is a companion series hosted by three local presenters who were selected from hundreds of entries following a nationwide talent search earlier this year, who will be taking viewers through all things Violetta.

The entertainment doesn’t stop there! Customers will also get to catch brand new premiere episodes of new and fan favourites such as Jessie, Liv & Maddie, I Didn’t Do It and The Next Step as well as a slew of classic original Disney movies like The Incredibles, Enchanted and The Princess Diaries.

The whole family is in for a treat this September as DStv Extra and DStv Compact customers get to sample some of Disney Channel’s exclusive hit shows and original classics, only on DStv Channel 303.
