The Little Mermaid's Ariel Inspired Tangled's Mandy Moore To Start Singing

The Little Mermaid's Ariel Inspired Tangled's Mandy Moore To Start Singing

How amazing is this little factoid?!

Mandy Moore admitted that she only got into singing because of Jodi Benson, aka Ariel from The Little Mermaid!

The Tangled star, who voices Rapunzel, told ET about her connection to the red-haired Disney Princess.

“I met Jodi Benson today, Ariel. She is the sole reason that I started singing,” she shared. “I didn’t manage to tell her that, because I didn’t want to creep her out too much [but] I will. Before the day is done, I’m going to lay that on her.”

After the interview Mandy made sure to get a pic with Jodi, who discovered this fact from ET.

“She didn’t tell me [that I inspired her to sing],” she said. “That makes my selfie even more special. That’s really neat.”

Rapunzel & Ariel Love!

Auli'i Cravalho Returns as Moana For 'Wreck-It Ralph' Sequel With Other Disney Princesses

Auli’i Cravalho isn’t done with Moana just yet — she’s returning for a brand new movie, Wreck-It Ralph 2: Ralph Breaks The Internet!

Disney’s newest heroine princess will be back on the animated screen with her Princess predecessors including Frozen‘s Anna (Kristen Bell), Tangled‘s Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), Brave‘s Merida (Kelly MacDonald), The Princess and the Frog‘s Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), Pocahontas (Irene Bedard), Aladdin‘s Jasmine (Linda Larkin), Mulan (Ming-Na Wen), Beauty and the Beast‘s Belle (Paige O’Hara), and The Little Mermaid‘s Ariel (Jodi Benson).

In the clip presented at the D23 expo, Ralph and Vanellope find themselves transported to the most magical place on the internet: OhMyDisney.com, where Vanellope decides to sneak into a dressing room full of Disney Princesses — to mess with them.

When the Princesses discover the tiny intruder, they prepare to attack. Mulan pulls out her sword, Merida grabs her bow, and Cinderella turns her glass slipper into a shiv. In order to save her skin, Vanellope tells the Princesses that she, too, is a Princess — which she is!

After the intrusion, the Princesses defend themselves even more, kicking aside all those princess tropes.

The Wreck-It Ralph sequel opens November 21st, 2018.

Shadowhunters' Emeraude Toubia Would Love To Play Princess Jasmine in 'Aladdin'

Ever since Little Mix‘s Jade Thirlwall was maybe in the running to play Princess Jasmine in the live action Aladdin, our minds have been filled with even more celebs who would be perfect for the role.

Including ShadowhuntersEmeraude Toubia, who has always wanted to play Princess Jasmine.

“I would want to play Jasmine,” she told Latina magazine earlier this year of her dream Disney princess. “She’s Arabic and I’m Arabic, so that would be a dream come true.”

She continued about creating her own princess to play, “I would love to create a Disney Princess whose figure is like what we all look like — she wouldn’t have this extremely tiny waist,” Emeraude says.

“I just want her to look how we do and have a really cool, honest personality. In general, I feel like Disney has done a great job with all these different princess movies and the stories behind them.”

TELL JJJ: Do you think Emeraude would make the perfect Princess Jasmine?

5 Reasons Why Tiana Should Be The Next Disney Princess To Get a Live Action Movie

Beauty and the Beast had the most amazing opening at the box office, earning over $170 million from 4,210 theaters over the weekend.

However, JJJ is here to make an argument for Tiana, from The Princess and the Frog, to be the next in line for her own live action movie.

'Beauty & The Beast' Stars Debate Who The Best Disney Prince Actually Is

While the Disney Princesses get praised, the Disney Princes are mostly looked over…but not today!

Beauty and the Beast stars Josh Gad and Luke Evans, who star as Le Fou and Gaston in the live action film, sat down with People and debated just who really was the best Disney Prince.

While they don’t really like Prince Florian (Snow White), but do love Prince Eric (Ariel), it’s Prince Philip that leaves an impression.

The one I feel really badly for is the Sleeping Beauty prince [Prince Phillip], because he’s got to fight a dragon — a thorny forest,” Josh explains, before busting out into the “Once Upon A Dream” song that’s featured in Sleeping Beauty.

JJJ Fun Fact
: Prince Philip was named after Philip, The Duke of Edinburgh — Queen Elizabeth II’s husband!
