The red carpet premiere for TV movie Descendants 3 has been canceled as a mark of respect to the film’s star Cameron Boyce.
Instead Disney Channel bosses plan to make a donation for the cost of the premiere to the young star’s favorite charity, the Thirst Project.
“We’re proud to be part of Cameron Boyce’s legacy by showcasing his talents on screen but we are canceling the red carpet premiere event for Descendants 3 (scheduled for July 22) and instead, The Walt Disney Company will make a donation to the Thirst Project, a philanthropic organization to which Cameron was deeply committed,” a statement reads.
“With permission from the Boyce family, Disney Channel will dedicate the telecast of Descendants 3 in Cameron Boyce‘s memory.”
The 20 year old died in his sleep on Saturday morning after suffering a seizure.
Coroners have determined the former child star died from natural causes. A final cause of death is expected to be announced in the coming weeks.
