For the first time in five years, there’s a new Descendants movie.

The hugely popular series of Disney Channel musical movies about the children of famous Disney villains hasn’t had a full-fledged film since 2019’s Descendants 3. Now the franchise is back with The Rise of Red, which Disney is billing as “the next installment in the mega-hit Descendants franchise.”

The new film is premiering on Disney+, although it will also air on Disney Channel this summer as well. You can watch the first teaser for The Rise of Red below.
