Cameron Boyce's father and sister filled in for the late Disney star as they showed up to support Kenny Ortega while he received his star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.

The 69-year-old director was honored Wednesday on Hollywood Blvd.

Ortega is perhaps best known for directing and choreographing the three "High School Musical" movies, but he is also the director of Disney's "Descendants" franchise.

The ceremony was held days before the now-canceled red carpet premiere of "Descendants 3," which was scrapped in the wake of Boyce's tragic death.

To honor the fallen star, Boyce's father, Victor, and sister, Maya, were by Ortega's side, along with "Descendants" co-stars Dove Cameron and Booboo Stewart.

During his induction speech, Ortega remembered the 20-year-old star and reflected on the time they spent together.

"His all-too brief appearance in this life inspired me beyond words," he said.

He added that Boyce's inspiration also helped inspire, "many of us here and generations of kids and families all over the world."

As we reported, the Boyce family recently announced a foundation that was launched to honor the memory of Cameron and help contribute to the charities he was passionate about during his life.

According to the organizations mission statement, "The Cameron Boyce Foundation provides young people artistic and creative outlets as alternatives to violence and negativity and uses resources and philanthropy for positive change in the world. The Foundation was established in 2019 to honor Cameron’s legacy."

After forming, Victor Boyce thanked fans for the immense report the foundation has received, and reminded people that if they cannot afford to donate to a good cause, "You can still make a difference by simply being kind, sharing your ideas and being positive."
