Descendant 1 Plot Summary
The story is set in present-day Auradon where King Adam and Queen Belle (from beauty and the beast) announce the crowning of their son after 25 years of their marriage. Prince Ben being the crown prince proclaims that he will free the descendants of evil characters such as Maleficent, the evil queen, Cruella, Jafar, etc. These descendants are prisoned on a forbidden island alongside their parents and other villains because of their evil history.
Ben receives a lot of criticism from people but he is adamant about freeing the children so they can receive schooling just like the Disney heroes. The descendants are confused about which path to follow. Their parents force them to steal the fairy godmother’s magic wand to that they can lift the magical barrier of the forbidden island. This conspiracy puts all the descendants into a great dilemma.
At first, Mal, the daughter of Maleficient fails to get her hands on the wand. Later on, they are admitted to the Auradon Prep where they make new friends. Jay, son of Jafar gets into the school’s tourney sports team, Carlos befriends a mutt which is a school dog, Evie has a crush on Cinderella’s son, and Mal befriends Jane who is the daughter of the fairy godmother. Mal has evil intentions at first and she uses Jane’s insecurities for her evil mission. Jane isn’t happy with her physical appearance so Mal uses some magic to slightly change a few things about her to make her look beautiful.
The descendants are so close to redeeming the fairy godmother’s magic wand when they hear she will be using it on Ben’s coronation. Mal decided to give Ben a love potion to be seated in the front during coronation day. Ben falls in love with Mal but the effect of the love potion is broken when Ben swims in the enchanted lake. Mal finds out that Ben has genuine feelings for her and she reciprocates the same feelings.
On coronation day, Jane gets hold of the wand before Mal could do to change her appearance with magic. She mishandles the wand and accidentally lifts the barrier from the forbidden island. Maleficient makes an entrance and she is angry with her daughter. She transforms into a dragon and freezes everyone. Mal uses her magic to reduce her in size and unfreezes everyone. Everyone realizes that there is some goodness in the villainous kids while Mal’s eyes give a green flash signaling that there is more to the story.

Descendant 3 Plot Summary
The third installment of the descendants clearly undermines human nature. It indicates a person can’t be entirely good or entirely bad through Audrey and Mal’s character. The royalties continue to bring villain kids to the Auradon prep. This time around, Mal and her friends are supposed to pick new kids for this purpose. They select Dizzy, Celia, Squeaky, and Squirmy. Dizzy is the granddaughter of lady Tremaine, while the others are the children of Dr. Facilier and Mr. Smee.
The whereabouts of Uma are still unknown which puts Mal into great worry. Meanwhile, Ben proposes to Mal, and Audrey grows hatred in her heart for Mal because she was Ben’s ex-girlfriend. She turns evil in her envy, steals, the queen’s crown, and a Maleficient scepter. She turns Mal into an old hag, out of her jealousy and put a sleeping curse on everyone at Jane’s birthday party.
Not only that she also turns Ben into a beast, to undo Audrey’s doing, Mal and her friends visit the Isle of the lost to get Hades’ staff. They manage to get hold of it and Mal learns that Hades’ is her father. They must not wet the staff otherwise it will lose its powers.
On their way back, Uma steals the staff but she agrees to give it back only if she decides to release all the children from the forbidden island. Uma and Mal must work in unison for the best of both lands. Both of them succeed in undoing everything Audrey has done out of jealousy. In the end, Mal is thankful to Uma for helping her repair the damage that has been done.
Moreover, Ben and Mal are engaged, and Mal decides that she cannot be the Queen of Auradon only. She wants to unite both the isle of the lost and Auradon through a bridge so that children can freely seek education. Which brings utter happiness to the villain’s children.
Descendants 4, What Could Be The Possible Plot
Disney hasn’t yet announced or confirmed the release of Descendants 4 but fans are eagerly waiting for the fourth part. There were a few things left open-ended in the third part of the movie which gives us a suspicion that descendants 4 is on its way. However, there hasn’t been any news about the release date or anything else. Unfortunately, we don’t even have any official trailer through which we can guess the storyline.
Many fans have been randomly guessing the possible storyline of the descendants 4. At the end of the third part of the movie, Mal says she can’t be the Queen of Auradon only. For both the worlds to work in union, she has to be the Queen of the Isle of the lost too. Moreover, she builds a bridge between Auradon and the Isle of the lost with the permission of Ben and Fairy’s godmother. The bridge allows free movement of the villain’s children. With the bridge open, there could be a possibility of evil entities moving freely to the Auradon.
Moreover, there is a complete change of perspective about good and evil when Audrey turns into evil out of jealousy. She tries to use magic on Mal out of pure revenge, because Ben, her ex-boyfriend proposes to Mal. Moreover, many villain kids from the forbidden island prove to be good and try to protect Auradon from evil. This shows that everyone is capable of doing good and bad and that no one is inherently good or bad.
The new story of the descendants 4 can take inspiration from these events and thoughts. Ben and Mal are to be married which seems to be the union of supervillain Mal and Good Ben according to the common binary in the eyes of the world, however, this union can bring many possibilities for both the worlds. Even though we don’t know the release date of the movie but according to the release dates of the first three parts it seems that the descendants might make its appearance in 2023 but it’s only a guess.

What do the descendants focus on?
