Recently, Cameron Boyce, a young actor known for his role in Disney Channel work like the series Jessie and the Descendants movies, passed away due to complications from epilepsy.

Now, alongside the release of the third Descendants film, Boyce’s last acting role, Disney has released a heartfelt tribute video celebrating the actor and his work. The video explores his career and his dance prowess, from his early days working with Disney to his final appearances.

It’s a sweet tribute to a promising young talent, and includes a few really delightful moments, like one where he makes Michelle Obama laugh during a recording session. The third Descendants movie premiered last night, continuing Disney’s goofy story of the children of supervillains, and it was dedicated to Boyce’s memory.

What a wonderful video. I’m not crying. You’re crying. As a Father who deals with epilepsy and who has a 9 year old daughter who is a huge fan of the Descendant movies his death spooked her. My wife and I spoke to her last night before we all watched the last Descendant movie that Daddy doesn’t suffer the same type of seizures and that she didn’t have anything to worry about. I require no more reminders that life is fragile. I have reached my full capacity. Whether it fades to black, gates get swung open, or you’re purring like a kitten I truly hope you are in a better place. Rest in Peace Good Sir.
