Mandy Moore is already sweet enough to give you a couple of cavities, so her latest role might burn your taste buds right off your tongue.
The former "Candy" singer (turned Ryan Adams bride) is venturing away from sappy, nonsensical chick flicks as she joins Jasmine, Belle and Snow White in the fabulous world of Disney princesses. Moore will voice Disney's latest princess heroine in the form of Rapunzel in Tangled. The animated feature is an adaptation of the classic tale of a lovely lady (with the longest magical blond locks you've ever seen!) who has been trapped in a tower her entire life.
The adventure begins when handsome bad boy Flynn Rider (voiced by Zachary Levi - aka Chuck) stumbles upon Rapunzel's tower on a run from the law. Upon entering her tower, Flynn is taken hostage by Rapunzel (and those long magical blond locks!).
The unlikely duo make a deal and plan an escape...and surely they'll fall madly in love and sing a duet together that will plant a lump in my throat the size of a grapefruit.
This is going to be Mandy Moore's greatest role yet. Guaranteed. Let's take a gander at some of her previous roles: She starred opposite Office hunk John Krasinski in one of the cheesiest rom coms of the last five years, License to Wed. Ugh. In Because I Said So, Mandy played a two-timing, unlucky-in-love baker. Mmm, cake. She was nothing but obnoxious in American Dreamz, a Jesus freak in Saved and a troubled teen (fathered by Sandy Cohen!) with a preggers bff in How to Deal. She made us - and a misunderstood Shane West - sob as a Christian cancer patient in A Walk to Remember. And let's not forget her first Disney movie where she played a bitchy high school cheerleader out to get a bushy browed Anne Hathaway in The Princess Diaries. She's come along way, dontcha think?
Tangled is set to hit theaters (in Disney 3D!) November 2010.
