Descendants Wiki

Descendants: The Royal Wedding is an Disney Channel animated special that aired on August 13, 2021. Based on the Descendants franchise, the special brings viewers back to the United States of Auradon and feature Mal and King Ben's royal wedding. It scored 0.65 million viewers.


Happily-ever-after continues for Auradon's power couple, Mal and Ben, as they prepare to say "I do" at an epic celebration with their friends and family, but Hades threatens to ruin it all.


Mal goes to great lengths to make sure Hades does not ruin her wedding.

Hades reveals that he accidentally caused the commotion by trying to keep Dude away from Maleficent. This caused his hair to light a tapestry on fire, forcing him to put it out (and douse Chad Charming for a laugh). He then fled back home to ensure what was left of Mal's special day wasn't ruined by him.
