Descendants 4 is still in the talks, folks! After the massive success of Descendants 3, Descendants 4 is definitely going to happen, there’s no doubt about it, but to date, there’s no official news from Disney’s end.
Descendants 4 What’s the Current Status?
Despite Descendants: The Royal Wedding serving as a basis for the fourth Descendants film, Disney has not yet confirmed a fourth Descendants film. We all saw the camera pan to a pile of white roses painted red as the animated spectacular came to an end, and then the screen went black. According to the teaser, there will be another Alice in Wonderland sort of film coming out soon in the Descendants franchise.
At this point, we’re well aware that Disney plans to continue the series in the future. A fourth live-action film may be on the way, but it will be interesting to see whether the series goes the animated route or stays on the live-action path.
Expected Release Date
A release date for Descendants 4 on Disney has not been announced since the studio hasn’t yet announced whether a fourth Descendants feature is in development. However, Disney could announce the project as early as 2022, and the release date will depend on whether it will be live-action or animated.
Historically, Disney has released new episodes every two years. Descendants debuted in July 2015, Descendants 2 in July 2017. Similarly, Descendants 3 in August 2019, and Descendants: The Royal Wedding in August 2021. So, if Disney follows a similar release schedule for Descendants 4.
Then we can expect to see Descendants 4 around the summer of 2023.
However, it is possible that Descendants 4 may not be available on Disney Plus until early 2024 if the film airs on Disney Channel in the summer of 2023. Disney Plus releases Descendants films around six months after they premiere on Disney Channel.
Descendants 4 Cast: Who is coming back?
As Disney still hasn’t officially renewed the series for a fourth film, no cast has been announced yet. Despite this, it is expected that many original cast members will return for the fourth film. Among the early favorites to return are Booboo Stewart (Jay), Sofia Carson (Evie), Dove Cameron (Mal), and Mitchell Hope (Mitchell).
There’s also the possibility that China Anne McClain (Sarah) and Sarah Jeffery (Audrey) will appear in further episodes. Besides familiar faces, Alice in Wonderland is believed to be the inspiration for the fourth film. There is therefore a possibility of seeing characters from the story like Alice, Queen of Hearts, and the Mad Hatter.
Unfortunately, no trailer or clip related to Descendants 4 is available right now. However, don’t worry; the moment we get our hands on any news, we’ll definitely let you know. Till then, keep on following our blog!
