On Friday, August 2, "Descendants 3" premiered on the Disney Channel, almost a month after Boyce's passing, featuring the late 20-year-old who played the role of Carlos, Cruella de Vil's son.

The tribute consisted of a two-minute video containing footage and photos of the young actor during the years he spent working for Disney, including his appearance on "Jessie."

REMEMBERING THE STAR THAT WAS CAMERON BOYCE

The video, which was included at the end of the movie, even featured the episode of "Jessie" in which former First Lady of the U.S. Michelle Obama made an appearance.

A very young Boyce can be heard saying "I made her laugh" while hugging the 55-year-old. But there were other funny and touching moments in the tribute.

For two whole minutes, fans were treated to clips of Boyce dancing, laughing, hugging people on set, having fun with his family and even auditioning for a role.

A little piece of text could also be read throughout the tribute:

“Everything you are, every smile, every laugh, every dance, every hug, every moment, everyone you touched … you mean everything to us.”

THE ACTOR'S CAUSE OF DEATH

Boyce passed away in his sleep on July 6, with the Los Angeles County Department of Medical Examiner-Coroner confirming that he died of epilepsy.

It has been reported that The Walt Disney Company will make a donation to the Thirst Project in Boyce's memory, an organization that the young actor was passionately committed to.

Obama, who, as aforementioned, met Boyce on the set of Jessie, took to her official Instagram account to honor the late 20-year-old.

The former First Lady shared a photo of herself and Boyce, and considered herself lucky to have shared enough time with him to realize how talented he was how much of a good heart he had.
