Filming for Adventures in Babysitting happened over a year ago with Sofia Carson and Sabrina Carpenter but I had the chance to sit down with them and talk with them about the process and their roles in the movie a few months ago. First off you can tell they both get along so well as they joked together during the interview and said how much fun it was to film together and the 5 kids in the film. During the filming they all became like a family to where they would even have get together on the weekends that involved singing, dancing and games.

It’s no surprise that these 2 will be great role models for little girls everywhere but when we asked who their role models were growing up this is what they had to say.

Sofia Carson: My role model’s always been my mom. She’s the most incredible woman in the world. Most incredible woman I know. I strive to be just a little bit like her every day, even if it’s just like 10% of what she is, that would be enough, because she truly is my hero.

Sabrina Carpenter: My mom and dad, and my older sisters. My whole family. The Carpenter bunch is kind of a special bunch. My parents always stressed in my head that I was unique, special and different and that I could do whatever I put my mind to. Those are the kind of people who you want to have in your life forever. And I’m lucky to call them family.

The original Adventures in Babysitting movie came out in the 1980’s and we asked them if they have seen the original movie before.

Sabrina: Absolutely. Disney came to both Sofia and I and we auditioned together. We’re very lucky that it worked out perfectly.

Sofia: I did see the movie. I was already a big fan. My mom was also a big fan of the movie. We were able to create a new version of such a classic, beloved tale for the new generation and I was honored to do that. It was an incredible experience. Apparently, I have a thing sequels, and remakes.

In the movie Jenny is played by Sabrina Carpenter and Lola is played by Sofia Carson. We asked both of them if they are more of a Lola or Jenny.

Sofia: I would say I’m kind of an in between. Lola is this really cool free-spirited young girl who isn’t afraid to just live life, despite the consequences of sometimes making irresponsible decisions. But she’s really passionate about her art and a strong girl something I’m also very passionate about. We have a really strong, incredible moms. And they taught us to be strong girls or represent girl power. And Lola and Jenny are both like that. Even though Jenny is a little bit more inside the box, she’s still a strong, powerful young girl. And we both save the day together.

Sabrina: What she said. It’s true, though! I think just because both of us take from Lola because she’s got that edgy sense of humor and she’s very passionate about her art. Whereas Jenny can’t be creative to save her life. I think that’s kind of what I spend my life doing. But I will say that I am sort of a perfectionist like Jenny. Jenny’s also not funny, like me!

The entire movie is great but both girls had a favorite part.

Sofia: My favorite part of the movie besides the part where we first meet, ’cause I think that totally shows the dynamic of these two new babysitters and gets you ready for the adventure that you’re about to go on and the rap battle.

Sabrina: I love the simple bathroom makeover scene for Jenny. She’s not getting a full makeover where they’re glamming her up and making her look like someone she’s not. But just kind of letting her hair down in a way where she can be a little bit more adventurous like Lola. It just kind of shows you what she’s taken from this whole adventure that they’ve had together. I also like how she’s a little bit more confident than she was before and of course, the rap battle scene.

Be sure to tune in tomorrow, June 24th at 8 p.m. ET/PT for the airing of Disney’s “Adventures in Babysitting” on the Disney Channel.

“Adventures in Babysitting,” inspired by the hugely popular 1980s film of the same name, is an upcoming Disney Channel Original Movie starring Sabrina Carpenter (of Disney Channel’s hit comedy series “Girl Meets World”) and Sofia Carson (of the hit Disney Channel Original Movie “Descendants”). In “Adventures in Babysitting,” a dull evening for two competing babysitters, Jenny (Sabrina Carpenter) and Lola (Sofia Carson), turns into an adventure in the big city as they hunt for one of the kids who somehow snuck away.
