Mandy lets down hair

09.10.2009

Disney has found its latest princess. RAPUNZEL has been in development for what seems like years but the new iteration (relaunched when Pixar took over Disney) has taken a big step forward with new that Mandy Moore has come aboard to star in the film. The film will follow the legendary Rapunzel as she's kidnapped from her parents' castle as an infant and imprisoned. Now a teenager, Rapunzel escapes and goes on the run with a bandit (who will be voiced by "Chuck" star Zachary Levi). I'm going to go out on a limb here and say that they'll fall in love along the way.

Moore replaces Kristen Chenowith ("Wicked") who had originally been cast in the role back when the film was subtitled UNBRAIDED. That title has been dropped and the plot has been significantly retooled. Glen Keane and Dean Wellins, who had been directing the past installment, stepped down and were replaced by Byron Howard and Nathan Greno who previously worked on BOLT. You can read a little more backstory on the RAPUNZEL saga and even get a look at what the character will look like by clicking here.

Extra Tidbit: The very first script had a modern day girl turning into Rapunzel while Rapunzel turned into a squirrel. Huh?

Mandy Moore?

The art for Rapunzel looks amazing. I was excited about Kristin Chenoweth doing the voice for Rapunzel. Now they have this stupid plot and Mandy Moore? Downgrade, Disney. I'll probably still watch it though...

Kidnapped.......uh oh

While I think the original art of Rapunzel looks beautiful I cannot help but wonder.....Girl kidnapped as a child, now a teen, and rescued.

This rings familiar of the recent story of the girl who was adbucted at 11 and found at 28, with two kids, living in a shack in a crazy couple's back yard.

Of course, by next year, that story will be forgotten....but I'm sure it won't stop the anti-Disney protesters....hell they already started protesting because the black prince in "The Princess and

Disney, what is wrong with following the stories as they originally were? You've been doing this for DECADES. What is wrong with keeping a fairytale a fairytale? Is this silly plot even going to explain why her name is Rapunzel, or is it just going to be a movie about a girl with long hair now?
