It’s been quite the journey from 2015 for Mal and King Ben, but the time has finally come for a royal wedding! Disney has announced the bad-turned-good gang is returning this summer for Descendants: The Royal Wedding.
The summer special is a new take on the fan fave movie series––it’s going to be animated! Everyone is heading back to Auradon with nearly the entire cast voicing the OG characters.
So who is reprising their roles? You’ll hear 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.
Notably missing is the late Cameron Boyce who voiced Carlos. His absence will be acknowledged in the story and he will be honored in the telecast.
President and chief creative officer, Disney Branded Television, Gary Marsh 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.”
Did you catch that? More Descendants seem to be in our future!
