Mandy Moore Reveals Why She Said Yes To Returning as Rapunzel For 'Tangled: The Series'

JJJ always hoped that we’d have another Tangled movie someday…but we got something better instead — an entire series!

Mandy Moore, who voices Rapunzel, recently dished about why she returned for the project after being a little weary about it.

“I mean, as Tangled the movie came to a close, Rapunzel was happily reuniting with her parents. And then with Disney’s Tangled Ever After short a year or so later, we saw her getting married to Eugene…So it originally seemed — to me, anyway — that there just wasn’t a whole lot of story left to tell,” she revealed.

However, she was convinced to return after seeing there was way more story to tell.

“[Executive producer] Chris [Sonnenburg] put together a very compelling argument that – as Tangled the movie was ending — Rapunzel and Eugene were actually in a pretty precarious position. As a couple, they were really just getting to know one another,” Mandy figured out. “Plus Rapunzel – after all those years of being trapped in that tower – had not only just learned that Mother Gothel wasn’t really her mother, but that her real parents are royalty.”

“Which makes her a Princess. Which means that – someday soon – she’s going to have to rule over this entire kingdom!”

Mandy added, “When Chris put it like that, it really did become clear to myself and Zachary Levi that there was a whole lot more story to tell here. A whole lot more to learn about Rapunzel and Eugene.”

And JJJ is so glad she did!

Tangled: The Series will premiere next Friday, March 24th on Disney Channel.
