Isla Fae - I Give You My First Bg Film I Had So...
The three first met in junior high. After graduating from college, they regrouped and moved to Los Angeles, where they struggled to find work and began making short films, combining absurdist comedy and occasionally music. Among the first performers to post their material on the Internet, they involved themselves with Channel 101, a non-profit monthly short film festival. Their popularity at the screenings led to unsuccessful pilot deals with Fox and Comedy Central and a writing job for the 2005 MTV Movie Awards. Subsequently, that show's host, Jimmy Fallon, recommended them to Lorne Michaels, the creator of Saturday Night Live.

In September 2000, they moved to Los Angeles and created their website, which would host short films. They named themselves The Lonely Island, after the "modest, low-rent" L.A. apartment that they shared with roommates Chester Tam and Matt Bettinelli-Olpin. The latter was a musician, and their late nights together often led to the trio making comedic rap songs, which they began to upload online. Their videos were produced via borrowed equipment and edited on a single PowerMac, and they were first uploaded to websites such as iFilm and Heavy.com. Their first "fake rap" song, "Ka-Blamo!", was uploaded in September 2001. They released their work under Creative Commons licenses, which allowed anyone to distribute their content (such as blogs and peer-to-peer networks), perhaps leading to wider audiences. In December 2001, they produced a pilot for a television series titled The Lonely Island; the first episode involved the three becoming addicted to teeth whitening products. The video gained the trio agents, and it was notable for a scene in which they mug an elderly woman. During the shoot, actor Kiefer Sutherland, not realizing it was a video, stopped and tried to intervene. Their agents requested they convert their shorts to VHS tape because they did not have high-speed Internet at the time.
Unable to secure full-time positions, the trio took temporary jobs; one season, they worked at Fox Television over the holidays, tying ribbons around metal snowflakes the studio gifted to their employees. Eventually, Schaffer worked as an assistant at a movie poster company, while Taccone and Samberg became production assistants on Spin City. In 2003, they produced a second pilot for a The Lonely Island series. The film premiered at the Comedy Central Stage in Los Angeles, the cable network's proving ground for new talent. The network purchased the series, but further scripts did not move forward. They became involved with Super Midnight Movie Club, a club hosted by screenwriters Dan Harmon and Rob Schrab, which evolved into Channel 101, a non-profit hosting monthly short film festivals. Their first submission, Ignition TV Buzz Countdown, was voted back after its premiere, but ended after two episodes. Their second Channel 101 series, The 'Bu, is a parody of Fox's The O.C. and was enormously successful at the screenings, running for eight episodes. It was pivotal in their early successes, demonstrating to television executives their popularity among tastemakers and a younger audience. Samberg's former producer at Spin City passed along the trio's demo reel to the United Talent Agency, which would lead them to their first major television deal.
"Lazy Sunday" aired on December 17, 2005, when the comedy troupe were little known to even Saturday Night Live's most devout fans. By the following morning, it had spread online nationwide. Schaffer and Taccone also were contacted by friends who heard the track played on radio stations and in bars. "Lazy Sunday" inspired a line of T-shirts, released during the initial boom of popularity in the weeks after its release. The film was one of the first viral YouTube videos, and it increased the trio's recognizability, particularly Samberg's, nearly overnight. Their success, according to New York, "forced NBC into the iPod age"; the short was initially available after its broadcast through the iTunes Music Store, made free for subscribers.
They are the main couple of the film series. They first meet each other at the beginning of Descendants and they later started dating and became a couple. In Wicked World, the two are shown to flirt, with Mal often complimenting on how cute Ben is and being impressed when he lied to Jay, while Ben encourages her to do her best and being a good person. The two had shared a romantic dance in Episode 16 and when he was kidnapped, she was extremely worried and happy upon learning he was safe. The two are still in a relationship in the novels Return to the Isle of the Lost and Rise of the Isle of the Lost. In Descendants 2, it is shown that they are each other's true loves, as revealed when Mal frees Ben from a spell using True Love's Kiss, and since then they have been madly in love with each other. In the beginning of Descendants 3, Ben publicly proposes to Mal and she happily accepts. They officially got married in Descendants: The Royal Wedding and are now living happily ever after. They are the current reigning King and Queen of the United States of Auradon
After their escape from the sword fight with Uma and her pirate gang and driving in the limo, Ben apologizes to Mal that it didn't go the way she wanted and says that he was grateful to Uma who allowed him to see what the Isle was like and when Mal tries to argue back he compares Uma to how Mal was when she first came to Auradon, a angry girl with a bad plan. Upon returning to Auradon, Jane approaches Ben to finalize the surprise he has for Mal for the Cotillion he asks if she wants to cancel. Ben then tells Mal to do what she needs to do and leaves giving her the space to sort out her thoughts. During Cotillion, much to everyone's surprise Ben introduces Uma as his new girlfriend and apologizes to Mal saying that he realized that the two of them were not meant to be together since Mal had never told Ben that she loved him. While dancing with Uma, Mal and the other VK's along with Doug and Lonnie prepare to leave but Jane quickly requests to Lumiere to unveil Ben's gift for Mal which is showed to be a beautiful glass painting of the two of them with Mal in her purple hair and green eyes. Ben pauses and stares blankly at the glass painting with Mal realizing that Ben truly does love her for who she is. Uma then reminds Ben of his gift to her and when Beast tries to talk Ben out of it, he retorts back at him with everyone shocked at his sudden change of character. Ben then orders Fairy Godmother to bring down the barrier as his gift to Uma, when Fairy Godmother refuses he demands her to listen to him as her King. With Mal realizing that the real Ben would never have said these things and do that to her and that he's been spelled, she approaches Ben telling him that he always believed in who they are and what they can be and says that she was afraid of telling him she loved him because she thought that she wasn't good enough for him and she thought that he would realize that Mal then confesses that she's always loved Ben and kisses him with True Love's Kiss breaking the spell, Ben looks lovingly back at Mal and smiles embracing her with Mal smiling and embracing him back reconciling. Uma realizing her plan has been foiled tries to escape and ends up jumping off the ship and transforming into a large octopus like her mother. She starts attacking them which enrages Mal who transforms into a dragon and the two of them begin fighting. Ben notices Mal's eyes changing before she turned into a dragon and is concerned. Ben is surprised that Mal turned into a dragon and was watching her. Ben seeing at how the fighting is never ending gives a large roar before jumping into the sea getting between Uma and Mal. When he's between them Mal gets closer to him and is protective. When Uma insults him Mal growls at her. He answers that fighting isn't the answer and that they have to listen and respect each other, he invites Uma once more to Auradon and help him make a difference but Uma simply returns his signet ring which he had given to her earlier while he was spelled by her and disappears beneath the sea. Both Ben and Mal return to the ship, Mal transforms back into herself, but in the dress she's wearing in the glass painting with Ben smiling at her. She bows and he bows back. She walks up to him smiling and he pulls her in for another kiss, he then thanks everyone for helping him and asks if there is anything he could do. Mal gives up her spell book saying she doesn't need it anymore and Ben smiles at her. Mal playfully splashes water at him and he playfully splashes water back at her and then embracing smiling. Everyone then celebrates on the ship with Ben and Mal singing and dancing and then he places his signet ring back on her finger as they look forward to their future together smiling and embracing each other. (You and Me).
While celebrating their royal engagement at the port, Mal is asked to make a speech. Mal philosophizes on how everyone is capable of good and evil, no matter where they come from, and she cannot simply be Queen of Auradon, but also the Isle of the Lost. Her heartfelt speech moves Ben enough to decide for the barrier around the Isle of the Lost to come down at last. Fairy Godmother hands over her Magic Wand; Mal, Jay, Evie, and Carlos say the spell together to remove the barrier and form a solid bridge to the Isle, allowing everyone to come through. Uma, Celia, Harry, Gil, and the rest of the islanders cross the bridge to celebrate the eventful occasion with the rest of Auradon, who have now fully accepted them. Hades crosses the bridge last and asks to be invited to the wedding. Mal embraces him, and Hades then gives the couple his blessing, but when Ben is embracing Mal, Hades gives him the "I'm watching you" warning. (Break This Down). 041b061a72
