Singer Mandy Moore has been cast as the main character voice of Disney’s next animated film Rapunzel while Chuck star Zachary Levi will play the prince. The Rotten Tomatoes website had the chance to ask Moore a few question about her role in movie that is scheduled for a December 10th 2010 release.
“She’s definitely the quintessential sassy, young Disney heroine,” Moore told RT. “She’s a bit of a spitfire too, and a very curious young woman. She’s really curious about the world she’s never really seen and she’s coming into her own.
I’ve done a little bit of work already,” Moore said, “but the bulk of it I’ll start when I get back home. It’s a lot of fun. And there’s music involved; really great music. It’s just so cool to be added to such great lineage,” she said.
“I’m going to be a Disney princess! I grew up watching Disney films and singing The Little Mermaid. It’s hard to wrap my head around [the fact] that I’ll be following suit. When the opportunity came up to audition I remember thinking, ‘I’m probably not going to get something like this but I’ll go up for it. I’m sure I’ll be one of many.’ It was one of those things that you didn’t necessarily think much of. You just think ‘What are the chances?’ So it was a very nice surprise. There’s a lot of imagination that goes into doing an animated film, and this really is my first proper, proper one,” she told Rotten Tomatoes.
“It’s a lot more draining than you expect. I’m sure you figure, you show up in whatever you’re wearing and you don’t have to be all made up and there’s no waiting around. I think because there’s so much that has to take place in your mind, there’s so much to imagine. And a lot of the time you’re not reading with anyone. It can be taxing in a different way than sitting around waiting all day on a set.”
