Disney Cancels “Descendants 3” Red Carpet to Make Donation in Cameron Boyce’s Memory

The red carpet premiere was scheduled for July 22, 2019.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, The Walt Disney Company will instead be making a donation to the Thirst Project, a charity that Boyce advocated for. The non-profit helps provide low-income communities around the world with safe drinking water.

In addition, Disney will reportedly be using the world-premiere telecast of Descendants 3, which is set to air in August.

“With permission from the Boyce family, Disney Channel will dedicate the telecast of Descendants 3 in Cameron Boyce’s memory” Disney Channel said in a statement.

Boyce was one of the stars of the Descendants franchise, portraying Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil. In addition to Descendants, Boyce was best known for his role as Luke Ross on the Disney Channel series Jessie, as well as the spinoff series Bunk’d.
