Sofia Carson is opening up about the upcoming Descendants: The Royal Wedding special!

The 27-year-old singer and actress will reprise her role as Evie in the animated special, along with most of her co-stars.

In a new interview with the Zach Sang Show, Sofia shared how hard it was, even though it’s just voice recording, to do it without her late co-star Cameron Boyce.

“I mean, you guys know how much I adore Descendants and Evie, she changed my life forever,” Sofia said. “This is an animation, like an animated special. There was an animated series for Descendants called Wicked World, and um, Disney wanted to do kind of one last chapter and it’s the wedding special.”

There Was Almost a Chance Sofia Carson Wouldn't Have Been In 'Descendants'

There Was Almost a Chance Sofia Carson Wouldn't Have Been In 'Descendants'

Sofia Carson revealed that there was almost a chance that she wasn’t in the Descendants movies!

In a new interview on Chicks In The Office, the 27-year-old Songbird actress shared that after doing a guest star spot on Austin & Ally, she had an audition for another Disney Channel series, and if she got that role, she couldn’t have been able to make it to her audition for Descendants.

“That opened the door to everything, and it actually happened shortly after Austin & Ally, because I remember I shot Austin & Ally over the summer, and I think my first audition for Descendants was that fall,” Sofia said. “Disney Channel, the casting world had already kind of gotten to know me a little bit, but when I was up for my first role for Descendants, I didn’t get it.

“It was not until I think February, I was up for a role on Liv and Maddie, another guest starring role, and I got sick,” she continued. “And for some reason, I couldn’t do the guest starring role, and that was the reason I was able to go to the Descendants callback.”

“It was this whole weird thing that have I gotten the Liv and Maddie role, I wouldn’t have been able to be cast as Evie.”

We are so glad that Sofia was able to make her Descendants callback!!

'Descendants' Celebrates 5 Years Since It First Premiered!

'Descendants' Celebrates 5 Years Since It First Premiered!

Flashback Friday!

It has been exactly FIVE years since the first Descendants movie premiered on Disney Channel on July 31, 2015.

The Kenny Ortega-directed DCOM starred Dove Cameron, Sofia Carson, Booboo Stewart, Cameron Boyce, Sarah Jeffery, Mitchell Hope, Brenna D’Amico, Kristin Chenoweth and more.

Descendants brought us the songs “Rotten to the Core,” “Evil Like Me,” “Did I Mention,” “If Only,” “Be Our Guest,” “Set It Off,” and “Believe.”

Here’s a synopsis: Driven by exciting music and performance, the story is set in the idyllic kingdom of Auradon where Ben, the benevolent teenaged son of the King and Queen (Beast and Belle from Beauty and the Beast), is poised to take the throne. His first proclamation: offer a chance at redemption to Mal, Evie, Carlos and Jay, the trouble-making offspring of Maleficent, the Evil Queen, Cruella de Vil and Jafar, who have been imprisoned on the forbidden Isle of the Lost for 20 years.

These villainous descendants are allowed into Auradon for the first time to attend prep school alongside the teenage progeny of Fairy Godmother, Cinderella, Sleeping Beauty and Mulan. Only time will tell if these evil teens follow in the footsteps of their wicked parents!

Sarah Jeffery Talks Possibilities of 'Descendants 4' OR a Spinoff!

Sarah Jeffery is dishing on Descendants!

In a recent interview promoting her new song “Even The Stars“, the 24-year-old opened up about a fourth Descendants movie, or even a spinoff.

“It’s such a cool world that they’ve created. There are so many different possibilities,” Sarah told ET. “I feel like a Descendants 4 could totally happen, but also a spinoff could happen, with new characters and new daughters and sons of princesses and princes and other villains. You really have endless possibilities there.”

“I will be forever grateful for Descendants and the family I made there and the experiences I had,” she continued. “So I would love to do something.”

“She’s kind of gone through everything. She’s been the mean girl, she’s been the heartbroken girl, and I just kind of want to see her be friends with people,” Sarah added about Audrey.

“If Audrey were to exist in another iteration of Descendants or another movie, I think that it would finally be nice for her to be a gal pal,” she said. “It’d be nice and cool. I think that would be awesome.”

You know, all of us here in this moment,” Sofia said. “And we actually got to see parts of what you guys created for the Descendants musical, and it was really phenomenal. It really blew us away.”
