DISNEY'S "DESCENDANTS" WAVES MAGIC RATINGS WAND FOR DISNEY CHANNEL

Disney's "Descendants," a modern-day, coming-of-age adventure about the teenage sons and daughters of Disney's most infamous villains, delivered an enchanting 6.6 million Total Viewers, including 3.0 million Kids 2-11 with its television premiere, Friday, July 31, (8:00 p.m., ET/PT), on Disney Channel, and posted 1.4 million record-setting views on the WATCH Disney Channel app since Friday, July 24. Its soundtrack (also released Friday, July 31 on Walt Disney Records) is currently at #1 on the iTunes soundtrack chart and #2 on the iTunes album chart, and its prequel novel, The Isle of the Lost by Melissa de la Cruz from Disney Publishing Worldwide, maintains its 10-week stronghold at #1 on the New York Times Best Seller List (Children's Middle Grade).

Tracy Jeffrey is the producer. Mark Hofeling ("Teen Beach Movie," "High School Musical") is the production designer and Kara Saun ("Project Runway") is the costume designer.
