The entire world was devastated on July 6, 2019, when Cameron Boyce suddenly passed away at the age of 20 after suffering from a seizure in his sleep. The Disney Channel star’s tragic death came just weeks before the premiere of his new movie, Descendants 3, so fans quickly started to wonder how the network would handle the upcoming film. We went ahead and rounded up everything there is to know about the premiere.
In case you missed it, Disney Channel announced back in May that the third installment of our favorite franchise would hit screens on August 2, 2019. The movie is still set to premiere as planned — however, the network did do away with having a red carpet premiere. Instead, they made a donation in the star’s honor.
“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,” Disney said in a statement on Thursday, July 11. “Thank you for your understanding.”
We know there are a lot more questions surrounding the upcoming premiere, but don’t worry, you guys, we’ve got you covered. Scroll through our gallery to uncover all the details on Descendants 3.
