Sofia Carson Picks Sabrina Carpenter as 'Cinderella Story' Successor!

Sofia Carson is already passing the Cinderella baton on to another actress!

JJJ got the scoop on A Cinderella Story: If The Shoe Fits from Sofia, and while talking, we found out that Sofia would love for Sabrina Carpenter to be the next Cinderella!

“There are so many incredible actresses out there that this is hard to choose!” she shares with us. “The first one that came to mind though, is Sabrina Carpenter.”

Sofia adds, “She’s not only a close friend of mine but she’s such a talented girl. She can sing, she can act…I think she would do great at this. I really love her. She’s a really special girl.”

We actually did the same with Lucy Hale back in 2012! For her Cinderella Story movie, she picked Zendaya as her successor!

DO YOU THINK Sabrina Carpenter would make a good Cinderella?

MUSIC: Sofia Carson Sings 'Why Don't I' on 'Cinderella Story' Soundtrack

MUSIC: Sofia Carson Sings 'Why Don't I' on 'Cinderella Story' Soundtrack

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.

Sofia Carson Dishes on 'A Cinderella Story' - 'It Was A Dream!'

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.”

Hilary Duff, Selena Gomez, Lucy Hale…just to be part of that list and the legacy is such an honor,” she adds.

Star Sofia Carson Wonders If Evie Has Any Siblings In 'Descendants'

Have you ever looked at Disney animated fairytales and wonder just why no one has a sibling?

Sofia Carson is wondering that exact same thing about her movie, Descendants!

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?

TELL JJJ: What’s the one thing you’re still wondering about Descendants?
