We can’t wait to watch Sofia Carson and Thomas Law in A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits TONIGHT on Disney Channel!
The film, which premiered on Freeform late last year, will hop over to Disney Channel for the long holiday weekend.
“I love Cinderella Story so much; and the opportunity to work with Michelle Johnson, who is such an amazing director,” Sofia recently told us about the role. “Tessa is a modern day Cinderella and as far as these stories go, she has a horrible, horrible step family.”
“Her stepmom is played by Jennifer Tilly, amazing Oscar nominee, who is absolutely hysterical,” Sofia added. “She’s made her life absolutely miserable, however, Tessa has this big dream of being a performer, a singer, to be on big stages. That is her fairy tale.”
A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits premieres TONIGHT, Monday, January 16th @ 5:25PM ET/PT on Disney Channel.
In her N.B.T. feature, Sofia was very passionate about her education and made it her mission to complete her degree by any means.
“I have nine classes left to graduate,” Sofia excitedly told us when we spoke last. “I’m a communications major /international relations minor at UCLA.”
She continued, “I had to take the last quarter off because of Descendants 2, but I’ll be back in January working on it. I don’t know exactly when I’ll be getting my degree, I don’t think it will happen next year.”
But don’t fret — Sofia WILL get her degree! “I will be so happy the day that happens because school is such a big part of who I am. I was always a big nerd growing up and I’m lucky was able to give me an education like this and it’s so important to me. I’m excited to get that diploma and wear the robes.”
“In Awe. I cannot express the honor that it was to have been in the presence of our beloved First Lady…” Sofia wrote on her Instagram.
She adds, “Thank you @michelleobama for your grace, your warmth, and your beautiful heart. Most importantly, thank you, from the bottom of my heart, for all that you have done….I will cherish this moment for the rest of my life.”
Cameron also shared a great little video of President Obama personally thanking all of his staffers during the party later that night. You can watch it below!
