Moore talks Rapunzel

09.29.2009

Here's a bit of news out of the Mouse House for those of you who haven't been paying attention. A) Disney is planning a 3D RAPUNZEL musical (I showed you concept art for it a while back) and B) Mandy Moore is voicing/singing the lead role. That second part escaped me until now, when she sat down with Empire and talked a little bit about becoming a Disney Princess.

"She's sort of the quintessential sassy, feisty Disney heroine. She's quite modern, quite a curious girl as well," says Moore of the once-entowered princess. "She's just coming into her own and is anxious to figure out a way to see the world around her that she's been kept away from for so many years…. I just feel honoured to be in such good company. Being a Disney Princess is kind of every girl's ultimate dream.”

John Lasseter has been cooking up this project for years, and it’s going to be Disney’s 50th animated feature when it’s finally released. I’m still not sure how base an entire movie around a fairly tale that involves a dude climbing up a girl’s magically long hair in order to rescue her, but I’m sure Disney has a few tricks up their sleeves in order to make this a worthwhile endeavor, and casting Mandy Moore ain’t a bad start.

Oh and one more pivotal piece of information before we go, Moore’s favorite Disney princess: "I was always really fond of the Little Mermaid growing up, so I would probably have to go with Ariel."

Extra Tidbit: My favorite Disney princess is Amy Adams. Is that cheating?

I love me some Mandy Moore. Not only is she unbelievably adorable, but she's just talented as all get out too.

Just give me the chance...

I would marry Mandy Moore in a heartbeat. I'd convert to mormonism if it meant I could have all 3 of my wives, Mandy, Natalie and my current wife. We'd all be so happy together!

Rapunzel

When is Rapunzel set for release? I hope they make this a 2D animated film like Princess and the Frog, I'll be watching for more developments.

That's definitely not cheating Paul, because I'm right there with ya. Amy Adams is a very beautiful lady. As far as this movie goes, don't really care and I will probably never watch it.

wait...

So Rapunzel is 26, I must have missed that. Well anyway her path to being taken serious as an actress will go way up with doing a kiddie movie, maybe her best friend Hillaery Duff can make a cameo!!! Crap has a distinct smell.

Thank God. I've been waiting awhile for someone to speak out on the matter that we should disregard all upcoming films due to the overall superiority of The Expendables.

The people that give a shit are those that have a wider range of taste in movies. It is not mentally insane to be interested in movies that aren't violent and filled with testosterone. In fact, someone who watches only violent movies is more prone to be mentally unstable. Trust me, I have a degree in Psychology.

well considering one of my favorite films is Finding Nemo and you all can't take a joke, I think that qualifies you as mentally insane.

Lol I feel bad. I didn't mean to be an asshole, I just have a really hard time passing up a good opportunity to express brutal sarcasm. My apologies.
