Descendants: The Royal Wedding coming this summer to Disney Channel

By Beth Deitchman


Get ready for a wedding that’s shaping up to be the social event of the year… in Auradon. That’s right, the VKs are back! Disney Channel has just announced that Descendants: The Royal Wedding, an animated special that invites viewers to Mal and King Ben’s wedding, will premiere this summer on Disney Channel.

The original cast of Descendants are returning to their popular roles and lending their voices to the animated series, including Dove Cameron as Mal, Sofia Carson as Evie, Booboo Stewart as Jay, Mitchell Hope as Ben, Sarah Jeffery as Audrey, Melanie Paxson as Fairy Godmother, China Anne McClain as Uma, Jedidiah Goodacre as Chad, Anna Cathcart as Dizzy, Dan Payne as Beast, Bobby Moynihan as Dude the Dog, and Cheyenne Jackson as Hades. Descendants: The Royal Wedding will acknowledge the absence of the character Carlos, played by the late Cameron Boyce, in the storyline and Boyce’s memory also will be honored in the telecast.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Branded Television, said, “Descendants introduced a fantasy world of stories and characters, anchored in Disney mythology. For the past six years, it captivated young viewers and grew to become among Disney Channel’s biggest entertainment franchises ever. It had the benefit of immensely talented stars, who we now welcome back for this animated Royal Wedding special that will bridge the audience to what we hope will be a new chapter of compelling Descendants stories and characters yet to come.”

Descendants: The Royal Wedding by Sara Parriott & Josann McGibbon and Ricky Roxburgh is based on the Descendants movies by Parriott & McGibbon. Le Cube serves as producer, with Salvador Simó set to direct.

The fan-favorite Disney Channel Original Movies Descendants, Descendants 2, and Descendants 3 rank as the top-rated cable movies among kids and tweens for 2015, 2017, and 2019, respectively. Each DCOM’s soundtrack reached the top spot on the Billboard chart, and the soundtracks for Descendants and Descendants 2 are gold-certified.
