Production Edit

The production of the series was announced right after the film Descendants finished airing on Disney Channel. Former Phineas and Ferb storyboard artist Aliki Theofilopoulos Grafft announced on Twitter that she was directing the series, with Jenni Cook as producer, and that the original cast would be reprising their roles. Each episode of the series is going to be under five minutes long, and in January 2016 a DVD titled Descendants: Wicked World & More released and had every short from season one, along with the "Rotten To The Choreography" and the "Set It Off" specials. The episodes are about two minutes long.

Trivia and errors Edit

The songs include a retro-soul "Rotten to the Core" remix performed by Sofia Carson, "Night Is Young" performed by China Anne McClain, "Good Is the New Bad" performed by Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson and China Anne McClain, and "I’m Your Girl" performed by Felicia Barton.
  • This is the first animated series produced exclusively to Disney Channel after Mickey Mouse Cartoons (2013 TV series).
  • The intro was first shown at the end of the Rotten to the Core remix music video.
  • Each episode is less than five minutes long.
  • In the trailer, there is a painting of Snow White, as seen in the painting room.
  • In the episode Careful What You Wish For, the user's name that gave Audrey a comment was SABASTIANCRAB1189, which references the character Sebastian from The Little Mermaid.
  • In the first episode "Evie's Explosion of Taste" you see Jafars' staff behind Mal near Snow Whites' painting.
