Adam Sandler's latest Netflix movie, "Hubie Halloween," is a fun-loving comedy that will get you in the mood for the spooky season. But it will also pull at the heartstrings when the end credits hit.

Halfway through the credits things get somber when a title card comes up that pays tribute to actor Cameron Boyce, who died in 2019 at the age of 20 from epilepsy.

Boyce played one of Sandler's sons in his 2010 comedy "Grown Ups," and its sequel in 2013.

"In loving memory of Cameron Boyce," the tribute reads. "Gone away too soon and one of the kindest, coolest, funniest, and most talented kids we knew. You live on forever in our hearts and are truly missed every day."

Boyce is known best for his roles in Disney Channel favorites "Descendants" and "Jessie." Sandler certainly had a soft spot for the young actor. The comedy legend even made a cameo on "Jessie" in 2013, where he shows up at the school dance and gives relationship advice to Boyce's Luke character.

In May, Sandler posted a picture of Boyce on what would have been his 21st birthday. "Such a great kid. We all miss him a lot," Sandler wrote, including a link to the website, which brings awareness epilepsy risks and aims to tackle epilepsy deaths.

"Hubie Halloween" is streaming now on Netflix.
