When Kenny Ortega’s Descendants 4 premiered on Disney Channel in 2015, there were high expectations for the newest Disney Channel original film. Descendants: The Royal Wedding is just one of a slew of new live-action and animation projects that Disney has announced since the film’s debut.
To Hades’ chagrin, Mal and Ben’s wedding was depicted in the animated feature as a happy ending. Even while the future may have been intended as the franchise’s final chapter, the film instead seems to set the stage for Descendants 4 in an unusual change of events.
Is Disney just imagining things, or could there be a fourth film in the popular series in the works? Descendants 4‘s release date, cast, and more are all covered in the following paragraphs!
Descendants 4 Release Date-
A fourth Descendants film hasn’t yet been announced, so it’s not certain when it might be released on Disney.
As early as 2022 could be the release date for the picture, depending on when Disney formally announces the project and whether it will be live-action or animated.
Descendants 2 was released in July 2017, Descendants 3 was released in August 2019 and Descendants: The Royal Wedding will be released in August 2021 and so on.
Descendants 4 Cast-
Descendants 4’s cast hasn’t been revealed yet, but it’s expected that most of the original cast members will return to reprise their roles for the fourth film in the series.
Dove Cameron (Mal), Sofia Carson (Evie), Booboo Stewart (Jay) and Mitchell Hope (Mitchell) are the early favourites to return in the fourth film (Ben). More of Audrey and China Anne McClain (Sarah Jeffery) is very certainly on the way (Uma).
Besides familiar faces, the fourth film is believed to be inspired by Lewis Carroll’s novel Alice in Wonderland. As a result, we may expect to see characters from that storey like Alice, Queen of Hearts, or the Mad Hatter.

- Jay, son of Jafar – Booboo Stewart (The Twilight Saga, X-Men: Days of Future Past)
- Evie, daughter of the Evil Queen – Sofia Carson (Austin & Ally, Tini: The Movie)

Is There Going To Be A Descendants 4 For Sure?
Following the youngsters as they returned to the Isle of the Lost in search of more evil children to join them at Auradon Prep school, Descendants 3 was a hit with the audience.
Many films have ended with a character saying, “You didn’t believe this was the end of the storey, did you?” or some variation thereof to the camera. Descendants 3, on the other hand, didn’t, which suggests that the series has reached its nadir.

It was also the final appearance of Cameron Boyce as Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil, in the third film. He passed away on July 6th, 2019 from problems related to his epilepsy, and Descendants 3 was made in his honour.
