    What can Destroy Evil? Disney’s Descendants Review

    DescendantsDVD

    Get ready for an all new magical musical adventure of self-discovery in Disney’s Descendants, available on DVD July 31, 2015, starring Kristin Chenoweth as Maleficent, Dove Cameron as Mal, Cameron Boyce as Carlos, Booboo Stewart as Jay, Sofia Carson as Evie, and Mitchell Hope as Ben.

    For 20 years villains have been exiled, living in the Isle of the Lost, condemned to eat scraps and annoy each other. Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Jafar and Cruella de Vil remember the better days of power, beauty and a fur coat made from puppies. Now they have children of their own: Mal the daughter of Maleficent, Evie the daughter of The Evil Queen, Jay The son of Jafar and Carlos the son of Cruella de Vil. Thanks to Prince Ben’s royal proclamation, this new generation brings hope to Maleficent as she dreams of a brighter future by using her offspring to steal the wand from the Fairy God Mother. Mal may just get the chance to make all of Maleficent’s dreams come true…and the dreams of her fellow villains as well.

    Descendants  JayDescendants Evie
    Descendants CarlosDescendants Mal

    ~~~~~WARNING: FROM HERE THERE MAY BE SPOILERS~~~~~

    However, there is something Maleficent did not expect, some factor that has the ability to destroy evil, changing their offspring into good model citizens of Auradon. No, it isn’t love. This time around, a prince can’t save the day, a dwarf can’t keep you safe, and a carriage can’t speed you away from danger. Nay, those items are the least of Maleficent’s worries, for hidden in a small red package lies the death of evil and the beginnings of all things good. I give you…The Strawberry. This one little berry that looks so harmless can be the most dangerous of all to a Disney Villain.
    Descendants strawberry 5

    Do you doubt my theory? What if I told you the entire reason for Mal’s change from evil to good lies in the pure innocents of a little strawberry? Seriously, without her indulgence in the foods provided by Auradon, we would have had evil triumph and good exiled to the Isle of the Lost. Maleficent would become queen of all. Here’s the proof:

    After making Prince Ben fall in love with her, Mal accompanies Ben on a date to a wonderful lake-side picnic. All sorts of foods are available including the infamous strawberries. Although her one goal is to use Ben to get close to the Fairy God Mother’s wand and steal it, Mal sees no harm in sampling the delights. She is denied such foods living on the Isle of the Lost and felt she had a right to indulge. With the strawberries sitting right next to Mal, the trap is set. (Personally, I think the strawberries were placed next to Mal strategically by Ben. He knew about the magical properties that strawberries possessed and he wanted Mal to eat one.)

    Descendants strawberry 1

    Amazingly, Mal passes over the strawberries through the first part of the date. Her evil powers are certainly stronger than mine, I would have been all over that berry feast. It isn’t until Ben decides to go swimming that Mal reaches for the closest thing she can hold onto. Having never learned to swim, Mal attempts to avoid embarrassment by claiming she hasn’t had the opportunity to taste a delicious strawberry. As the berry passes her lips, she bites down. The juices run past her tongue leading to a burst of berrylicious flavor. Her eyes dilate and her demeanor softens. Evil begins to melt away as the desire for another taste of that lovely berry kicks her senses into high gear. She shoves another strawberry into her mouth and we lose our once evil Mal.

    Descendants strawberry 2

    This is the turning point in the entire film. At that moment, while Ben is swimming, Mal realizes she may love Ben and breaks into her solo, “If Only.” A heartbreaking realization occurs to Mal as evil melts away making room for love, she will have to defy her mother to keep Ben. All thanks to one little strawberry melting the evil within, Mal no longer wishes to steal the wand for her mother.

    Perhaps, because she ate so many strawberries, Mal’s thoughts travel back to Ben swimming in the lake. Shock leads to horror as she realizes Ben has not come up for air. In desperation she runs into the lake only to remember she can’t swim. Her evil is washed away leaving behind a girl who would give up everything to save her love; love that would not be there if she hadn’t eaten the strawberry.

    Descendants strawberry 7

    In the end, it all came down to a little red berry, innocently sitting in a glass bowl. Mal’s whole world changed the minute she tasted the delicate strawberry. In fact, the whole story changed. Instead of Mal stealing the wand and giving Maleficent power over good and evil, Mal convinced Evie, Jay and Carlos to defy their parents. Maleficent’s plan never comes to fruition, Mal falls in love, and the Descendants are free to live their own life. It is truly amazing what a seemingly harmless berry can do.

    Watch Disney’s Descendants, and see if you agree with my theory. Are strawberries the most powerful berry in Auradon?

    Turbo FAST Season 2 Will be Arriving Soon!

    Turbo_FAST_poster

    On July 31st, Turbo and his crew take Turbo Town by storm in the all-new season of DreamWork’s Animation’s Turbo FAST, premiering exclusively on Netflix July 31st. The world’s coolest snails take a turn off the track and set off on a wild ride filled with hilarious hijinks at every turn. You’ll laugh out loud when they launch into outer space, battle an apocalyptic robot, clash with a ninja stinkbug and escape a booby-trapped treasure hunt!

    I actually got the opportunity to see two episodes from the upcoming season, and let me tell you…AWESOME SAUCE!! Not only is it the art that we have come to love, but all the lovable characters are back in the craziest scenarios yet. You thought expired tomato cans and fast bugs were the enemies, try two robbers with no talent or a superhero that is neither super nor heroic. Not to mention the absolutely ridiculous problem solving ideas. It is well worth seeing for kids and adults.

    While there is so much for kids to love with the coolest snails and racing, the adults will love the pop culture references. For example, in “Home on Our Own”, Skidmark and White Shadow once again find a way to get out of a coaching retreat, to the dismay of Smoove Move. Instead, it is all about binge watching Gossip Girl on Snailflix before spoilers ruin the show. (I have to give props to Netflix, I laughed so hard.)

    TurboFAST Snailflix

    Unfortunately for Skid and Shadow, two incompetent robbers decided to try and rob them. They spend the rest of the night attempting to watch their favorite show and stop the would-be robbers using crazy antics suggested by Gossip Girl. They even go as far as copying a funny trick from the movie “Home Alone”…You’ll know it when you see it.

    Pop culture reference don’t stop there. In “Sting of Injustice”, a new bug comes to town, the Adam West of bugs. With his superhero lines and tough exterior, The Stinger is the Batman of Turbo Town, ready to “Cross the finish line ahead of the wheels of injustice.”

    TurboFast The stinger

    …Or so they thought. Turns out, The Stinger is nothing like Batman, other than the cool dark costume and lavishly long lines. The cheek of injustice may just have to await the firm slap of law and order, as the snails of Turbo Town realize The Stinger is more into causing trouble and making funny poses. But how do the Snails get rid of an unwanted superhero? They create a super villain of course. Behold! Stalk Eye!

    TurboFast Stalkeye

    With a few well placed POWS!! of justice, Turbo Town may just get rid of their new Menace.

    TurboFast Pow

    …or maybe gain a new one…Dun Dun Dun!

    TurboFast Treasure horde

    Get your very own sneak peek into Turbo Fast by watching the hilarious clip below. It is said that music soothes the savage snail. So enjoy this calming musical voyage through space with Chet and Smoove, as they sing about crossing the *true* final frontier while in outer space.

    Free Cubeecraft Paper Craft of Ulrich from Code Lyoko

    Ulrich Stern is a member of the Lyoko Warriors, a team bent on defeating an artificial intelligence known as X.A.N.A. Ulrich and his friends Odd, Yumi, Jeremy and Aelita fight X.A.N.A. by entering the world of Lyoko, a computer program with several zones and towers. These towers get activated by X.A.N.A. and must be turned off to save humanity in the ‘real’ world. The towers are sort of like hacking tools that can enter the systems, like those at Kadic Academy, and cause havoc. Ulrich and his friends must reach the towers and allow Aelita to shut them down. Their main goal is to protect Aelita, because if she dies in the game, she does not regenerate, or at least that is the case for much of the series.

    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

    In the ‘real’ world, Ulrich is a normal boy who attends school. plays sports, and struggles with admirers, especially Sissi, a girl that just won’t stop bugging him. In Lyoko, he is a Samuri master. His weapon of choice is a saber, which he is very proficient with. Ulrich is probably one of the most dangerous Lyoko warriors. He works hard to remain strong and proficient in everything he does, including sports.

    This cubeecraft features Ulrich in the first part of the series where he wears all shades of green. I am guessing it is his favorite color. Ulrich is free, as always, but a donation would help. Cubeecrafts take a lot of time to make so any amount will help keep the hobby alive.

    To Build the Cubeecraft:
    Materials needed:
    Printer
    Card stock
    scissors
    x-acto knife

    To make:

    1. Cut out each item along the outer black lines. Do not cut the long line in the hair. This is a folding line.
    2. Cut along the white on each tab using the x-acto knife
    3. Cut along each red line using the x-acto knife
    4. Fold along each inner solid black line and slide each tab into the slots created with an x-acto knife to form a cube of the head, body, arms, and feet
    5. Slide the arms through the red slots on either side of the body.
    6. Slide the feet through the red slots at the base of the body.
    7. Slide the now completed body through the red lots of the head.

    He is done. To download this cubeecraft click the links below and save them to your computer. Then print and create!
