Descendants 3 Premiere Gets Canceled In Honor Of Cameron Boyce
Disney announced on Thursday that they have canceled the red carpet premiere for Descendants 3 after the untimely death of actor and star Cameron Boyce.
“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 and instead, The Walt Disney Company will make a donation to the Thirst Project, a philanthropic organization to which Cameron was deeply committed,” Disney said in a statement.
