On Friday, Disney Channel memorialized Cameron Boyce with an emotional tribute video at the end of the premiere broadcast of “Descendants 3.”
“Tonight’s premiere of #Descendants3 is dedicated to #CameronBoyce and is a celebration of his talent and the joy he brought to the world. You’ll always be in our hearts, Cameron,” the network said in a post on Twitter shortly after the film concluded.
The video features footage of various interviews with Boyce, outtakes and bloopers, candid footage, as well as praise and admiration from those he worked with. “Everything you are, every smile, every laugh, every dance, every hug, every moment, everyone you touched, you mean everything to us,” reads the message that flashes onscreen during the video.
Boyce, who was born on May 28, 1999, was found unresponsive in his home on July 8. “He passed away in his sleep due to a seizure which was a result of an ongoing medical condition for which he was being treated,” a Boyce family spokesperson told ABC News the day after. “The world is now undoubtedly without one of its brightest lights, but his spirit will live on through the kindness and compassion of all who knew and loved him.”
Boyce starred in Disney’s “Descendants” franchise, in Adam Sandler’s “Grown-Ups” movies, as well as on TV’s “Jessie,” among other series and films. Watch the tribute video below:
