Sofia Carson Gives Empowering, 'Descendants'-Inspired WE Day Speech

Sofia Carson Gives Empowering, 'Descendants'-Inspired WE Day Speech

Sofia Carson took the stage at 2017 WE Day Toronto!

The Descendants 2 actress spoke to 20,000 students and educators from more the 600 schools at the event held on Thursday (September 28) at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto, Canada.

WE Day is an educational and inspirational event that celebrates the power of young people to make a positive difference in the world by taking action on local and global social issues.

Other speakers and performers included Kelly Clarkson, Vanessa Hudgens, Bailee Madison, Prince Harry, Jacob Tremblay, Lilly Singh, Sabrina Carpenter, Shawn Hook, Gaten Matarazzo, and Andre De Grasse.

“Can every girl in this room proudly raise her hand?” Sofia asked the crowd during her speech. “This story is for you… Once upon a time, there was a girl named Evie who lived in a movie called Descendants.”

“Behind the magic, the fairytale, and the blue hair, Evie was just a girl who was scared and confused,” she continued. “A girl who was told that she would never be good enough (like many of us feel), a girl who was told that her self-worth was defined by her reflection in the mirror (like many of us do), a girl who felt she just wasn’t smart enough…. Until, one day, she picked up a book and changed her life.”

Vanessa Hudgens Would Definitely Make 'High School Musical 4' If It Was THAT Fan-Made HSM4

Vanessa Hudgens Would Definitely Make 'High School Musical 4' If It Was THAT Fan-Made HSM4

Vanessa Hudgens is totally on board to make that High School Musical 4 movie, inspired by that fan-made trailer.

Speaking with Young Hollywood recently, the actress, who played Gabriella Montez in the movies, revealed that she was majorly impressed by the visual.

“I saw it on Monique [Coleman]‘s Instagram, actually,” Vanessa says of the first time she saw it. “I kind of died [watching it]. I loved it.”

The visual saw the core six Wildcats reunite in many different ways.

“I had dinner with Ashley [Tisdale] that night after watching it and I was like ‘Babe, did you see this? It’s insane.’ She was like ‘Oh my God, yea. If we did that movie, I’d do that movie.’”

So, Vanessa would be in, Ashley is in, Monique is in. KayCee Stroh is in and maybe Lucas Grabeel too.

Disney, time to wake up!

Vanessa Hudgens Spills on Her Latex Halloween Costume!

Vanessa Hudgens Spills on Her Latex Halloween Costume!

Vanessa Hudgens has big plans for Halloween this year!

The 28-year-old actress, who’s known for her annual Halloween bash, says the party will be Freak Show themed but her costume won’t be related!

“I love AHS: Freak Show so much. I love all the different seasons. I’m trying to find all the props and secondary is the costume. I don’t hire someone to do [the event planning]. I do it all myself,” Vanessa told People.

She added that her costume is all about latex!

“Because I wore latex to Las Vegas recently for the [Mayweather vs. McGregor] fight, I was like, ‘This is fun. When’s another time you can wear latex?’ And I was like, ‘Halloween!’ So I’m trying to find a good, legit Catwoman Michelle Pfeiffer costume,” Vanessa said.

We can’t wait to see her costume come together!
