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.

Claire Holt Says Filming '47 Meters Down' Was 'Exhausting'

“Exhausting. It was a rigorous shoot,” Claire said on Today. “And I think Mandy and I had no idea what we’d gotten ourselves into. But by the end of it, we had a real affinity for the water, I think. And we got used to it and loved it. But it was tough.”

Tangled's Mandy Moore Isn't A Fan of the Frozen-Tangled Theory

Tangled's Mandy Moore Isn't A Fan of the Frozen-Tangled Theory

There are so many fan theories over Disney and DisneyPixar movies…but none really as famous as the Frozen-Tangled theory.

The theory is that Anna and Elsa’s parents, the King and Queen of Arendelle, were headed to a wedding when they left — and fans, understandably, connected it to Tangled with Eugene and Rapunzels’ nuptials.

It isn’t that far out there. Germany, where the Kingdom of Corona is thought to be based, is just across The North Sea from Norway…which are treacherous waters; not to mention there is a clear family relation (it’s those eyes!).

And, it also explains just why Rapunzel and Eugene were at Elsa’s coronation just three years later. (We know, pretty much every royals from every country was, but still…)

However, Mandy Moore (who voices Rapunzel) isn’t a big fan of the theory though.

“That’s a pretty morbid fan theory,” she says. “It feels like someone really reaching into Lost territory or something… or This Is Us territory.”

She adds, “There is no connection, as far as I know, but I don’t think there’s any connection, no. But sure, people can imagine what they will all day, that’s their prerogative.”

WHAT DO YOU THINK ABOUT THE FAN THEORIES?

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

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.

Mandy Moore Chats Rapunzel

Mandy Moore Chats Rapunzel

Mandy Moore gets the giggles as she sits down to chat about providing the voice of Rapunzel in the upcoming Walt Disney animated film.

Opening on November 12, 2010 in limited theaters, the classic fairytale about the girl with the super-long hair features the voices of Mandy, Chuck star Zachary Levi and Donna Murphy.

In Disney’s version, Rapunzel (Moore) tells the tale of a princess stolen from her parents’ castle as a baby and locked in a hidden tower longing for adventure. Now an imaginative and determined teenager, she takes off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade with the help of a dashing bandit (Levi). With the secret of her royal heritage hanging in the balance and her captor in pursuit, Rapunzel and her cohort find adventure, heart, humor, and hair.
