Entertainment Weekly shared a first look at Kristin as Maleficent in the upcoming Disney Channel movie "Descendants". The photo shows her with her on-screen daughter Mal, played by Dove Cameron and in the background the offspring of the Evil Queen (Evie), Jafar (Jay), and Cruella de Ville (Carlos). Take a look below:

Additionally, director Kenny Ortega is quoted of saying:
"Who didn't love to hate Maleficent? You have the incomparable Kristin Chenoweth with this fantastic chemistry with Dove Cameron, who plays her daughter, and wonderful wit and good humor with Kathy Najimy, who plays her neighbor, the Evil Queen. It's just a dream."

Kristin extends Godmother role at Royal Caribbean

09 June 2014 by *Iris • comments 0
Already last year we learned that Kristin would be the godmother of Royal Caribbean's newest cruise ship, the 'Quantum of the Seas'. As such, her main job was and is the promotion of the ship and, of course, the obligatory christening that is to take place in November before the Inaugural Cruise.
Now, Royal Caribbean announced that Kristin will play an expanded role as Quantum experience advisor for Entertainment.
"Royal Caribbean International is pulling out all the stops when it comes to the entertainment offerings for its newest ships, Quantum of the Seas and Anthem of the Seas, with a keen eye on pushing boundaries and introducing brand new innovations that have never before been seen on land or sea. With such a strong emphasis on entertainment, the cruise line has partnered with some of the most creative and talented minds in the industry to lend their expertise, including Quantum of the Seas' godmother, Kristin Chenoweth, who has been named Quantum Experience Advisor for Entertainment. Chenoweth joins a lineup of Quantum Experience Advisors who are working with Royal Caribbean to ensure the amenities and activities onboard Quantum of the Seas are nothing short of amazing, including HGTV-star and interior designer Genevieve Gorder, athlete and adventurer Dhani Jones, and James Beard Award-winning chef Michael Schwartz.
A triple-threat, Emmy and Tony award-winning performer, Chenoweth brings an invaluable perspective to her role as Advisor for Entertainment. As Advisor, she's had the opportunity to participate in an executive review committee, previewing the concepts for all of the shows, productions, and themed events in development for Quantum of the Seas, and giving feedback on every aspect ranging from sets and music, to costumes, casting and more.
"Kristin is by far our most involved godmother yet and it is such a joy to be working with her," said Lisa Lutoff-Perlo, Executive Vice President, Operations, Royal Caribbean International. "We are privileged to have a world renowned performer such as her, sharing insights and feedback on the entertainment that we are so passionate about. Seeing the excitement and energy she has for what we are doing with Quantum of the Seas is such a powerful reinforcement that we are creating something truly special."
"It has been such a wonderful experience to be the godmother for this incredible ship, and I am delighted to make my contribution as the Quantum Experience Advisor for Entertainment," said Chenoweth. "I have been blown away by what I've seen so far from the entertainment onboard Quantum of the Seas and am just so impressed, and that's not easy to do. This is the real deal, and audiences have a lot to look forward to.""

Last week, Kristin attended at event at the Royal Caribbean headquarters in Miami were the Quantum of the Seas Entertainment was presented. Check out a video below:

In addition, Kristin, alongside alongside Nick Weir, Royal Caribbean's Vice President, Entertainment, will be hosting a live Google Hangout on June 11, 4pm EST to reveal the lineup of entertainment offerings onboard Quantum of the Seas, and for a Q&A. Everybody is welcome to join here.

I am Harvey Milk

Kristin is set to perform at the one-night-only concert performance of "I Am Harvey Milk" on October 6 in New York.

"I Am Harvey Milk" is a 60 min oratory by Andrew Lippa commissioned by the Gay Men's Chorus of San Francisco about Harvey Milk, the first ever gay politician voted into the public office in the 60s who was assassinated only a few months later. Andrew Lippa himself is appearing as Harvey Milk, Kristin will be the solo soprano. They will be joined by Orchestra of St. Luke's and introduce the 120-member All Star Broadway Men's Chorus.
The piece was first performed in San Francisco last year and the recording rose to #1 in the Classical Music itunes charts (with Laura Benanti). It is available here.
The performance will take place at Avery Fisher Hall (Lincoln Center) at 7:30 on Oct 6, tickets are on sale NOW and are available here. Since this is a gala event (benefiting the creation of the Harvey Milk Arts Fund) tickets are quite pricey, but affordable ones are also available (ranging from $40 to $250).
