Disney to Honor Cameron Boyce

descendants 3 cameron boyce

Disney is canceling its red carpet premiere of Descendants 3 in honor of Cameron Boyce.  Instead, they will be donating to a charity that was close to Boyce’s heart, the Thirst Project.  This organization’s focus is to bring clean drinking water to places where there is none.  Cameron was passionate about this cause and was active in fundraising for this organization before his death, raising over $30,000 for Eswatini.

Although the Descendants 3 red carpet premiere will be canceled, it’s Disney Channel August premiere will be dedicated to Boyce.  You will be missed Cameron Boyce but your positivity will live on.

LaRoyce Hall, girlfriend Carynn, and three-year-old daughter Zayda were recently visiting the Disneyland Parks from San Antonio, Texas after Zayda wanted to visit “The Disney Channel” after watching it on tv.

While visiting the Disneyland Parks, Hall, an eager Toy Story Fan jumped into the queue after visiting Bo Peep. While waiting, the Toy Story fan had a quick wardrobe change while waiting for Andy’s favorite toy, Woody, when both Buzz Lightyear and Woody appeared to his amazement and the picture shows what happened next.

The dad too excited about meeting characters explains, “We were taking pictures with all the characters around the park but Toy Story is my favorite movie! Originally it was only supposed to be Wood coming out, but then Buzz came out too! So I was like a kid on Christmas.” He goes on to add, “We did let my daughter taker her pictures first, then I quickly ran to them for a selfie. I didn’t realize my daughter was by my leg trying to get in the picture.”

Lighthouse Point

According to the Nassau Guardian, Disney Cruise Line has begun the process of pre-qualifying contractors for the Lighthouse Point cruise port on the island of Eleuthera. 

In a newsletter developed for the locals of Eleuthera, Disney explains that they are meeting with contractors while touring local construction sites in search of the right people for the job. 

Disney also expressed interest in local contractors at a recent meeting of the Bahamian Contractors’ Association. 

Additionally, Disney will conduct an environmental impact assessment (EIA) before the project can begin. 

The newsletter also stated, “Our own team of conservation experts is working closely with a highly qualified team of Bahamians and an experienced international firm to perform an EIA of the site that aligns with our company’s long-standing commitment to the environment. This is a detailed analysis being conducted as directed by the BEST Commission. Once a draft is submitted, both the EIA and environmental management plan will be reviewed by the government and made available for public consultation. Only after that process is complete can work begin on the site.” 

Bahamians and Eleutherans have expressed the desire for more information on this project and how it will affect day-to-day life on the island. Disney released this newsletter to hopefully answer questions and keep the public in the loop with the progress of the Lighthouse Point project. 

Disney has also released that they are committed to developing only 20% of the Lighthouse Point property. They will be donating 190 acres of privately-owned land to the government.

The story involves the love story between Ikaris, a man fueled by cosmic energy, and Sersi, who relishes in moving amongst humans.”
