Disney princesses: Mandy Moore on Rapunzel and an extended look at The Princess and the Frog

Mandy Moore recently talked to Empire about voicing Rapunzel in the upcoming animated Disney film. Disney is set to release its 50th animated feature, Rapunzel sometime in December of 2010. The project is 3D animation but even though it's 3D animation, the images are designed to look like a traditional 2D film. The visual style is said to be based on Jean-Honoré Fragonard's painting The Swing.

Kristin Chenoweth had been cast as the voice of Rapunzel but was replaced by Mandy Moore after the entire project was overhauled. Moore discusses Rapunzel's personality and her favorite Disney princess:

"She's sort of the quintessential sassy, feisty Disney heroine. She's quite modern, quite a curious girl as well," says Moore of the once-entowered princess. "She's just coming into her own and is anxious to figure out a way to see the world around her that she's been kept away from for so many years."

"I just feel honoured to be in such good company. Being a Disney Princess is kind of every girl's ultimate dream."

"I was always really fond of the Little Mermaid growing up, so I would probably have to go with Ariel."

As pathetic as Ariel is, she's my favorite Disney princess as well. Sounds like this modern incarnation of Rapunzel is the opposite of Ariel.
