Fans of the Disney Channel's Descendants franchise and the actor were shocked and saddened to learn of the passing of film and television star Cameron Boyce on Sunday.

Extended Trailer For Disney's Descendants

Disney has released the trailer for the Disney Channel movie Descendants… and I have to admit I'm curious why this wasn't a feature film.
