Disney Cancels Descendants 3 Red Carpet Following Cameron ​Boyce's Death

Instead, Disney will donate money to Thirst Project

Following the death of Disney Channel star Cameron Boyce earlier this month, Disney has made the decision to cancel the upcoming red carpet event for Descendants 3. Additionally, the company is also going to make a donation to the Thirst Project, "a philanthropic organization to which Cameron was deeply committed," according to a press release.

Descendants 3 was scheduled to hold its premiere on Monday, July 22. The movie will still debut on the Disney Channel as scheduled on Friday, Aug. 2, but now it will be dedicated in Boyce's memory.

In the trilogy of films, Boyce played Carlos, the son of Cruella de Vil, who leaves the Isle of the Lost (where all the villains and their kids live) for the posher Auradon where he enrolls at the school there to try and become a better person. Easier said than done. Descendants created a new franchise for the young-skewing channel -- the story now spans across three movies and has countless merchandise tie-ins. After Boyce's death, it's unclear what happens next and if there will be more movies in the future.

In addition to Descendants, Boyce also starred in Grown Ups and Grown Ups 2, in which he played Adam Sander's son, as well as Disney Channel's Jessie and Jake and the Never Land Pirates.
