We’re only a few hours away from the premiere of A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits, which means we have to take a listen to the full soundtrack!
“In my experience of making movies, I’ve been really lucky that the movies I’ve been part of have had a big music part,” star Sofia Carson told us. “I tend to become closer to the character in the process of being in the recording studio and the dance studio when music is involved. I loved recording songs with Tessa.”
Sofia also chatted about the one track that means the most — “Why Don’t I?”
“I love ‘Why Don’t I?’ which is the anthem of the movie. You hear it quite a few times throughout the movie, and the first time you do, my character is in disguise for her first rehearsal in Cinderella.”
She adds, “She sings this song and even though she’s on stage and in front of a lot of people, it’s an intimate moment where she’s asking herself ‘why don’t I?’ and it’s the first time that she believes she can really do this and make her dreams come true. It’s an empowering song and it actually gave me chills when I heard it for the first time before I recorded it. The lyrics are so beautiful.”
A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits premieres TONIGHT, Sunday, November 27th @ 8PM ET/PT on Freeform.
Who’s ready to watch Sofia Carson in A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits?! We know we are!
JJJ had the chance to talk with Sofia about the movie and she dished on almost everything — from the soundtrack, to filming in Cape Town, South Africa, and even about her Prince Charming, Thomas Law.
“Cape Town was…just a dream!” she told us about where the film was shot at — and how she had two very long flights to get there!
Sofia continues, “When I got the call I had got the part of Tessa, I couldn’t really believe or wrap my head around the fact that I’m going to be a part of this franchise that I wanted to be a part of for so long.”
JJJ spoke with the actress earlier this week and while we couldn’t get any Descendants 2 spoilers out of her, she did pop that question that everyone is wondering about the movie and its plot.
“We all have started to wonder if we have any siblings,” Sofia shared about her cast.
Do you wonder that? Does Evie have an evil brother? Or does Jay have an equally mischievous sister? What would their names be? What would the look like? Who are they and more importantly, where are they?
