What, you didn’t think this was the end of the story… did you? While you may have noticed, I am absolutely in love with Disney’s Descendants 2, I couldn’t help but notice something. There are still kids we have yet to see! Whether it be kids we know exist from other Disney movies or simply want to see through wishful thinking, let’s take a look at the forgotten Disney Descendants.
Melody, Daughter of Ariel and Eric
One of my favorite sequels is The Little Mermaid II: Return to the Sea. In this movie, Ariel and Prince Eric’s daughter, Melody, becomes a mermaid and battles with Ursula’s little sister, Morgana. As beautiful as this movie is, for some reason they decided not to include Melody in the Descendants franchise. This is particularly disappointing when you consider the addition of all the sea fairing kids we met in Descendants 2, including the daughter of Ursula, Uma. Also, in the third book of the novel series, we meet her cousin, Arabella.
CJ and Harriet, the daughters of Captain Hook
We learned from the novels and animated series that Harry Hook has two sisters! However, they were not even mentioned in the movies! Personally, I love sibling interaction and would have loved to see another member or two of Uma’s pirate gang in the form of Harry’s sisters…Uma needed more female friends.
Aziz, son of Aladdin and Jasmine
Another kid that was mentioned in the books but not in the movie, Aziz—son of Aladdin and Jasmine! Now, in the first movie we got to have a fun moment where Mal and Audrey met and talked about their moms’ beef. Also, they were going for the same guy. It would have been fun to see how Aziz would have interacted with Jay, especially since in the books, they are apparently friends. Ben and Mal even had a dinner with the couple that’s all over the news for the second movie, but with no mention of Aziz!
Jordan, daughter of Genie
Jordan was a major character in the short series, with a few episodes even taking place inside her wicked awesome lamp. She would have been a magical addition to the crew in the movies, but alas, she seems to have disappeared from the spotlight.
Now, I know, I know, we have the Percy Jackson movies… sort of. But considering we did have the movie Hercules and there are a couple of kids of the Greek gods mentioned in the books (and the animated Hercules series), it seems only fair we get a few in the Descendants movies! Also, if they included Melody like I said earlier, we could see a fun little family dynamic since Melody’s grandfather, King Triton, is the son of Poseidon.
Ally, Daughter of Alice
In other works we also get to know the wonderful Ally, also known as the daughter of Alice. She is once another descendant that is MIA during the movies. Granted, she’s not exactly my favorite character. But it is still odd that she played such a big part in the other aspects of the franchise and was non existent in the movies.
This one I understand would be a challenge given she is voiced by the phenomenal China Anne McClain, who also plays Uma. However, I still think it would have been fun to throw some voodoo into the mix in the movies.
Honestly, this list could go on forever, but I’m going to stop it here. Who are your favorite forgotten Disney Descendants not on the list?
