Sofia Carson Says 'Descendants 2' is a Strong Story About Girl Power (Exclusive)

Who doesn’t love a little girl power?

Actress Sofia Carson recently opened up to JJJ about how Descendants 2 has a strong theme of empowerment and self-love.

“In the beginning of Descendants 2, Evie is literally living her dream,” Sofia told us about her character. “She’s a successful fashion designer. She has her own fashion line. She’s living in Auradon, the place she always dreamed of living. But in the rush to fit it, she’s trying really hard to forget who she is and where she comes from, and forget the girl she left in the Isle of the Lost. Evie’s story is a really powerful and beautiful one about girl power, and most importantly about loving yourself and who you are, and where you come from.”

“When Mal runs off to the Isle of the Lost, Evie has to make a decision about whether she wants to go back and run the risk of never being able to leave, or saving her best friend,” Sofia said. “She decides she has to save her best friend. And she goes on a really beautiful journey of self-discovery on the Isle.”

Descendants 2 airs July 21 on Disney Channel.
