Kristen Chenoweth has been picked up to play Maleficent in a new movie that will be made for Disney channel. It will be called "Descendants." On Thursday, NY Daily News shared this exciting news with fans. It will be great to see her in this role.

She will be playing the "Sleeping Beauty" villain Maleficent. This movie will be all about the teenage children of these famous Disney villains. It hasn't even started filming yet but will begin production in May of 2015. They are still working on casting this entire movie, but she is now cast and is going to be a very important part of the film.

The new movie "Maleficent" that is coming to theaters actually stars Angelina Jolie. It takes the movie to a darker place though. The new Disney channel movie called "Descendants" will be nothing like that at all. You can expect to see Kristen Chenoweth in a totally different role than what Angelina Jolie is going to be playing in theaters later this year.
