Save the Date for the 'Descendants: The Royal Wedding' Premiere

Save the Date for the ‘Descendants: The Royal Wedding’ Premiere. Wedding bells are ringing for Mal & Ben this week on Disney Channel! The bride and groom will say “I Do” this Friday on August 13, 2021, as long as they can handle the disruption from Mal’s disgruntled father Hades.

The Royal Wedding will be featured as an animated special and is expected to have a run time between 30 mins – 1 hour. The special will follow the events of Descendants 3 after Ben’s proposal to Mal, but the father of the bride will soon be crashing this fairytale wedding! Check out the trailer below:

Disney has shared that the choice to make an animated special versus another live-action film was an easy one as the entire cast and crew could not see themselves making another movie without Cameron Boyce who played Cruella de Vil’s son, Carlos. Cameron unexpectedly passed away in his sleep in July 2019 from a seizure brought on by complications with epilepsy. To honor his memory, the special refuses to recast the role and took on an animated spin.

Descendants: The Royal Wedding stars 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.

Written by Sara Parriott & Josann McGibbon and Ricky Roxburgh, Descendants: The Royal Wedding is based on the Descendants movies by Parriott & McGibbon. The animated special is directed by Salvador Simó and produced by Final Frontier Entertainment. Descendants: The Royal Wedding will premiere this Friday, August 13 only on Disney Channel, immediately following the debut of the new Disney Channel Original Movie SPIN.

Disney has yet to announce if/when the special would be added to the Disney+ roster, but we expect Descendants: The Royal Wedding to be added to the streaming service shortly after the premiere on Disney Channel. Descendants 1-3 are currently available to stream via Disney+. Be sure to check back here at Chip and Company for updates and all things Disney Channel!
