This may be hard to believe, but it’s been more than five years since the first Descendants movie premiered on Disney Channel. Yep, on July 31, 2015, fans were first introduced to Evie, Mal and the rest of the gang. Since then, we’ve been singing along to all the catchy tunes that came straight from the film series!
For those who forgot, the fan-favorite trilogy said its bittersweet goodbye back in August 2019, but fans have already been hoping for a fourth movie! The series followed the teenage children of some of Disney’s most iconic villains as they adjust to life outside the Isle of the Lost. Each of the three movies brought a new task for the gang to overcome. The series starred Dove Cameron, Booboo Stewart, Sofia Carson, Cameron Boyce, Mitchell Hope, Anna Cathcart, Sarah Jeffery and China Anne McClain.
When chatting with J-14 exclusively, Mitchell recalled his epic experience on the movies’ sets. “It’s a great franchise, and it was a lot of fun to be a part of,” the actor said, noting that “there’s always a chance on the horizon [for another film]. I’d be excited to do it.”
Dove, for her part, also spilled some major tea about the possibility of coming back to reprise her epic role for another Disney Channel Original Movie.
“I may or may not have heard something about something that I might be doing involving the franchise. I would never say that it’s over, but I also would never confirm anything at this time. I would be open to doing more,” she said during an interview with DigitalSpy from September 2019. “To be completely honest, as an actor who is not beholden to Disney, I would say that I think it would be smart for them to capitalize on the brand that they created. I think it would be smart to do maybe a spinoff with maybe the younger characters. I know that Disney has been very specific about saying that this world doesn’t really ever end, it goes on forever and the possibilities are endless.”
Although there’s no fourth movie in the works just yet, the Descendants: The Royal Wedding animated installment premiered in August 2021. Of course, the stars have all gone on to nab roles in some other major TV shows and movies, but one thing’s for sure, the Descendants will always be in their hearts!
