Rapunzel is an energetic, artistic, and fan favorite Disney Princess, and now she’s supposedly getting her chance to shine in live-action on the big screen. The lost princess story is one of Disney’s most recently announced live action remakes in a seemingly endless list that audiences have mostly lost track of. Tangled itself didn’t debut all that long ago, in 2010, and thirteen years is comparatively young in the realm of animated Disney classics. Nonetheless, the live action Tangled is on its way!

The Walt Disney Pictures animated film Tangled tells the story of Princess Rapunzel, with her long, magical hair, who has been locked away in a tower by an evil witch named Mother Gothel. When a thief named Flynn Rider stumbles upon her tower, Rapunzel’s wish to escape and explore the outside world comes true. The two fall in love and sing the Academy Award-nominated song “I See the Light.”

What Can Fans Expect in a Live Action Tangled?

Considering Disney’s trend toward creative casting decisions and tweaked storylines, fans are understandably nervous about what this could mean for Tangled‘s live action translation. Some fans would rather Disney just leave the animated film “in peace” rather than potentially ruin it.

It is unlikely the original voice cast will return to reprise their roles. However, fans would love to see some kind of cameo from Mandy Moore (the original voice of Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (the original voice of Flynn Rider, AKA Eugene Fitzherbert) in some capacity like that of Jodi Benson in the 2023 The Little Mermaid live action remake.

Famous names are already being thrown out by fans who are willing to get on board. Could Meryl Streep be considered for Mother Gothel? Amanda Seyfried or Sabrina Carpenter for Rapunzel? Either way, cautiously excited fans seem to suggest that good casting will make or break their willingness to see it in theaters.

Some Disney fans have just been burned too many times, though… What’re your thoughts on the live action Tangled news?

About Lana Porter

Lana has never lost a Disney Trivia night. Maybe it’s the hundreds of times she’s been to Walt Disney World Resort in Florida, her love for Disney’s ’90’s era hand-animated musicals, or the fact that she’s often likened to cartoon characters, but Disney and its magic have a special place in her heart. Her favorite Disney experiences include the EPCOT Food and Wine Festival, eating Mickey Bars on the PeopleMover, and crying during the Magic Kingdom fireworks show. One day she hopes to be chosen as the rebel spy on Star Tours. When Lana isn’t Park Hopping, she’s at home reading books of all topics, watching her favs on Disney+, or snuggling her two cats, which she swears are not named after Disney characters. She loves surprising people with her knowledge of the Marvel Cinematic Universe but admits she is still catching up with Star Wars. She is happy to combine her excitement for writing with her love for Disney-style storytelling and share what she can with the world!
