Bibbidi, Bobbidi… Boom!
Disney Channel’s Descendants: The Royal Wedding invites viewers to Auradon’s biggest social soiree: Mal and King Ben’s wedding! Happily-ever-after continues for the power couple as they prepare to say “I do” at a magical celebration with friends and family. But Mal’s father, Hades, threatens to ruin the big day: “You didn’t think this was over, did you?”
