Francesca Capaldi may only be 10 years old, but she has a LOT going on. Not only does she star as Chloe in Disney Channel's hit show Dog With a Blog, but she also plays Kara Bannister in the new movie The Dog Who Saved Summer, which comes out today, Tuesday 6/2 on DVD and online.
In the latest movie in the "Dog Who Saved..." series, the Bannister family's dog Zeus (who is voiced by Mario Lopez) destroys a family party, causing the family to send him to obedience school. When Zeus proves to be a little difficult to train at obedience school, the Bannister kids fear he'll have to go to the pound.
CHECK OUT OUR INTERVIEW WITH FRANCESCA CAPALDI:
"It’s just a fun movie and it’s just really great and I can’t wait for everyone to see it," Francesca tells M.
Francesca's character Kara is probably one of Zeus' biggest supporters throughout the entire film. She is so terrified that Zeus won't be allowed to be their dog anymore if he can't shape up, that she desperately tries to help him.
"[Kara] is just worried about Zeus because she thinks that if he doesn’t pass the class, he’s going to go back to the pound. She’s just really worried about making sure he passes the class because she loves him," Francesca dishes.
AWW, at least Zeus has Kara on his side! Since Francesca has had so many roles alongside famous talking dogs — she also voiced a character in the upcoming Peanuts Movie with Snoopy — we imagine it was pretty easy for her to channel what Kara was feeling.
"We’re similar because we both care for our animals," Francesca says. "I don’t have any but anytime I see a lost dog I really want to take care of it."
And get this: Francesca revealed her family might be getting a dog of their own soon!
"I love dogs so much. We’re thinking of getting a dog soon. We’re not sure. I hope," she says.
AWW, finger's crossed that she gets a brand new puppy to take care of. But of course, until that day finally comes, Francesca always has Stan from her TV show Dog With a Blog.
"I do not [have my own pets] but Stan is kind of like a pet," she reveals.
Since the movie takes place in summer, we just had to ask what fun events Francesca has planned for the upcoming warmer months.
"We'll probably go to some theme parks and probably hanging out with my friends and having a great time. I'm so excited for summer," she dishes. "I just got out of school. And so I just plan on doing sleepovers."
