Right now, the internet can’t stop talking about the upcoming live-action Tangled movie. It was announced last week that the beloved animated film is set to receive the live-action treatment, and fans of the original movie are eagerly waiting for more information.
The story of Tangled is a modern retelling of the classic Rapunzel fairytale. Rapunzel, a creative and outspoken young girl, has been locked in a tower by Mother Gothel in order to protect her and her magical hair. Rapunzel dreams of seeing the lights of the city beyond but fears that will never happen. All that changed when Flynn Ryder, a loveable thief, burst into her tower and changed her life forever. Tangled is funny, heartwarming, and stunning to look at, making this film an instant hit.

Rumors have been swirling that Florence Pugh is Disney’s choice for Rapunzel, but some fans have other ideas.

These singers also have acting credits under their belt, making them a semi-realistic option for this role. It was even revealed that Harry Styles was a choice to play Prince Eric in the live-action The Little Mermaid.
A fan used AI to create what the iconic duet “I See the Light” would sound like with this duo, and fans can’t get enough.
