Breaking Dawn was the final book in the Stephanie Meyer’s Twilight Saga series, and it was so full, it had to be broken into 2 movies. Parts 1 and 2 revolve around the marriage, pregnancy, birth, and childhood of Edward and Bella’s (Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart) little family, which now include Reneesmee and Jacob (Mackenzie Foy,Taylor Lautner).
Disney’s Descendants took the tween world by storm last summer, as the newest obsession, not seen since High School Musical. This musical story of redemption of the children of Disney villains was delightful and unique. The talented cast already came with a Disney fan base, not that they needed it, but it helps. Although not scheduled to be released until next summer, Disney gave us a 10-second teaser of Descendants 2… well, to tease us.

Horror is a genre that lends itself to anthology probably better than any; whether it be short story compilations from the greats of the genre, from Lovecraft and Poe, to Barker and King, or classic cinematic anthologies like Trilogy of Terror and Tales From the Crypt. These have paved the way for a new generation of short story style scare films. Collections like Trick ‘r Treat (2007), and the more recent V/H/S and ABC’s of Death series have provided fans of blood and gore a wealth of fun times. If you’re a fan of any of those above mentioned films, then Tales of Halloween is definitely worth your time and money.
The new Disney Channel phenomenon, Descendants, aired Friday night to become the #1 cable movie of 2015. In fact, preliminary viewer tallies put it at 6.6 million viewers that night alone.
On the heels of this, Disney has released a teaser of a new Descendants animated short series, debuting this September, with… you guessed it… the 4 evil children as the stars. It’s called Descendants: Wicked World. Come on. It’s Disney. They are very good at capitalizing on success.
Check out the success tweet and watch the animated short teaser below.

Disney Channel movies, no matter if they are good or bad, tend to be very popular and overwatched, for a few reasons:
1) They star established Disney Channel TV Stars.
2) They have catchy pop tunes, sung by Disney Channel TV Stars.
3) They are re-aired twice a day, every day, for 6 months to a year (or until the sequel and/or next Disney Channel movie).
There is sometimes a 4th and 5th reason. It doesn’t happen very often, but when it does, you have to just be happy that it did – the movie has a good premise and some good acting (a few famous adult actors don’t hurt either).
