This past Valentine’s Day, the news broke that Disney is reportedly working on a new Rapunzel live-action film. We are still unsure if the upcoming live-action movie will follow the storyline of Disney’s animated movie, Tangled, or if this live-action movie will be its own version of Rapunzel’s story.

But that hasn’t stopped Disney fans from all over already casting who they think would make the perfect Princess Rapunzel and dashing Flynn Rider in the upcoming live-action Rapunzel film.

Let’s take a look at what some of the Rapunzel and Flynn Rider possibilities could be, thanks to Disney fans everywhere (Someone even gave their opinion on who they’d like to see cast as Mother Gothel):

Florence Pugh as Rapunzel and Tom Holland as Flynn Rider

Florence Pugh as Rapunzel and Jacob Elordi as Flynn Rider

Emily Bett Rickards as Rapunzel and Ben Barnes as Flynn Rider

 Josephine Langford as Rapunzel

Dove Cameron as Rapunzel

And someone even chimed in on who they would like to see play Mother Gothel. This Twitter user is rooting for the one and only Idina Menzel to play the villain. (From Elsa to Mother Gothel, it could work).
