Trivia

  • Sofia Carson and Dove Cameron wore wigs during filming.
  • This is the first time that the Classical Disney film canon united in a feature film.
  • As the villain kids progress from bad to good, the changes are reflected in their attire. They start out in their Isle of the Lost outfits, slowly decreasing in rebellious imaging, and finally to their coronation outfits and party clothes worn during "Set It Off".
  • This would've been the second time Dove Cameron and Cameron Boyce worked together. The first time was in Dove Cameron's show, Liv and Maddie.

  • During Rotten to the Core, if one looks closely behind to the group's dancing, the can see another "Long Live Evil" tag with Cruella's outline, and when you look behind Jay you can see the Jafar version of Long Live Evil.
  • If one examines the stained glass windows of the church where the coronation is held, the images include Quasimodo, Snow White, Ariel, Aurora, Belle, Prince Adam, Alice, Fa Mulan, Li Shang, Tiana, various princes, and what appears to be Kristoff. The last image suggests Arendelle is part of Auradon.
  • In the film, the term "prince" seems to be synonymous with wimps as noted by Jay.
  • 18.2 million total viewers (so far) have watched Descendants.
  • Sofia Carson, who plays Evie, originally auditioned for the part of Audrey.
  • Descendants is the #5 cable movie of all time.
  • In "Set It Off", a lyric in the song was "We got the keys. The kingdom's ours." which Ben and Evie sang is a reference to Sleeping Beauty where there is a lyric in a song "I got the keys to the kingdom."

  • There was originally going to be a character named Aziz, son of Aladdin and Jasmine but was cut out for unknown reasons.
  • Each offspring's name starts with the same initial letter as at least one of their parents.
    • Jane doesn't count as an exception since her father's identity was never disclosed.
  • Maleficent's dragon form in the climax took over 2,000 hours to animate.
  • "They're not bad. They're just born that way." is a reference to Jessica Rabbit "I'm not bad, I'm just drawn that way.".
