Descendants: Wicked World is an animated series of shorts, spinning off from the Descendants film series, taking place in-between Descendants and Descendants 2.

Continuing their adventures at Auradon Prep, the Villain Kids are joined by more of their own, but do these newcomers have plans of their own that put Auradon in danger?

The series ended in 2017 after just two seasons.

Tropes in this series include:

  • Brainwashed and Crazy: Mal suffers this throughout the first half of the Jewel-bilee arc thanks to a curse placed upon her birthright jewel when in her possession.
  • The Cameo:
    • A bust of Hades is seen in Dr. Facilier's office when Mal and Freddie are searching through it.
  • Chuck Cunningham Syndrome: Chad, Doug, and Dude the dog were nowhere to be seen nor mentioned throughout the show's run.
  • Dance Party Ending: The Jewel-bilee arc ends on one proper.
  • Disneyfication: The artstyle uses Disney's typical artstyle for its CGI-animated movies.
  • The Faceless: Only Ruby's extremely long hair is ever seen.

  • My God, What Have I Done?: Audrey felt this way when Ally reveals everything Mal did wasn't her fault because she was under a curse caused by her birthright jewel hidden in the necklace Freddie gave her.
  • Rejected Apology: Audrey initially refuses Mal's apology for what she did when cursed by her birthright jewel.
  • Story Arc:
    • The first half of the first season consists of a "wish granted" saga when the VKs encounter Jordan. The second half has everyone preparing for the Neon Lights Ball and solving a mystery.
    • Season 2 focuses on an overarching arc where the AKs and VKs prepare for the Jewel-bilee and Mal tries to stop a curse on her own jewel which involves Yzma's son Zevon.
  • Strange-Syntax Speaker: The spell that Mal casts on everyone (except Evie) causes them to speak like this.
    Audrey: In trouble big you are!
    Ally: What now happening is?!
    Jane: Voices our she's bewitched!
    Jay: Deserve you what get you.
