“Saving Mr. Banks” star Melanie Paxson has joined Disney Channel’s “Descendants” movie as the Fairy Godmother character. Melanie will play the mother of the character Jane, played by singer Brenna D’Amico.
“Descendants” will arrive on the Disney Channel next year. Here’s a description of the DCOM:
A present-day idyllic kingdom where the benevolent teenage son of King Beast and Queen Belle offers a chance at redemption for the troublemaking offspring of Cruella De Vil (Carlos), Maleficent (Mal), the Evil Queen (Evvie) and Jafar (Jay).
It sounds like the cast list is almost complete!
