Since learning that Liv and Maddie star Dove Cameron had signed on for one of the lead roles in Disney Channel's planned live-action TV movie Descendants, we haven't heard much on the promising project. However, this week brings a major update in the form of the great Kristin Chenoweth, who will be playing the role of Maleficent -- mother to Cameron's character -- in the planned movie.

Less than a week after announcing that the casting process has begun in the new live-action Disney Channel movie, Descendants, comes word that Liv and Maddie star Dove Cameron has nabbed one of the coveted roles.
