Descendants Wiki
This article is about the prop book. For the hardcover book, see Descendants: Mal's Spell Book.

Mal's Spell Book is a book of spells that appear in the Disney Channel movies Descendants and Descendants 2, belonging to Maleficent's daughter, Mal. It used to belong to Maleficent before she gave it to her daughter as a tool to help her get Fairy Godmother's wand when she and her friends were invited to attend Auradon Prep at the request of King Beast and Queen Belle's son, Ben. The Spell Book has a variety of spells that Maleficent formerly used for many occasions. Mal briefly owned the Spell Book, until the end of Descendants 2, when Mal decided to give it to Fairy Godmother for reasonable occasions.

The book features a golden dragon crest on the front cover and the pages inside contain many spells and incantations.

Contents and Spells

  • Manipulation Spell: This is a pretty exclusive spell. It forces a victim to interact with nearby objects. For example, Mal had the museum guard prick his finger on Maleficent's spinning wheel, on display near the security bay. It makes the victim prick their finger with the spindle, making them fall asleep.
    • The incantation: Magic spindle, do not linger. Make my victim prick a finger.
    • Prick the finger, prick it deep. Send my enemy off to sleep.

      • Make it easy, make it quick. Open up without a kick.
      • Toad's breath and vampire's tickle, open up this door a little!
  • A Spell for Better Hair: The spell for better hair can give people new or better hair, and is used quite often by Mal as many girls at Auradon Prep ask her for new hairdos.

Variations of this spell allow changing other elements of the appearance of a person or a portrait.
