Remember, you’re invited! A new animated special, Descendants: The Royal Wedding welcomes audiences to Mal and King Ben’s wedding, Auradon’s epic social event of the season. The special premieres this summer on Disney Channel.
Reprising their popular roles are 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.
The absence of Carlos’ character, played by the late Cameron Boyce, who passed away at age 20 in 2019, will be acknowledged in the storyline, and Boyce’s memory will be honored in the telecast.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Branded Television, says, “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 and McGibbon. The film will be produced by Le Cube, while Salvador Simó is set to direct.
