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 the animated film, Tangled or if this movie will be its live-action version of Rapunzel’s fairy tale story.
But that hasn’t stopped Disney fans from all over already casting who they think would make the perfect Disney 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).

And this Disney fan 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).

More Information On The Rapunzel Live-Action Film
The upcoming live-action Rapunzel film is expected to have screenwriter Ashleigh Powell write the script, which you may know from her work writing the screenplay for The Nutcracker and the Four Realms.
Some of the others rumored to be on production include Michael De Luca (Captain Phillips) and Kristin Burr (Christopher Robin). Zoe Kent (Lilo and Stitch remake) is currently being looked at to executive produce the project. Jessica Virtue (Mulan remake) and Lucy Kitada are rumored to oversee the live-action Rapunzel film.
Suppose this rumor does turn out to be accurate. In that case, the upcoming live-action film based on Rapunzel will join other Disney live-action remakes, including Jon Favreau’s The Lion King and The Jungle Book and Dumbo Aladdin, Pete’s Dragon, Mary Poppins Returns, and more.
Other Live-Action Projects
While Disney fans wait for more information to be released on the upcoming live-action Rapunzel film, they look forward to the live-action remake of Mulan, set to debut in theaters on March 27, 2020, and the forthcoming live-action Cruella film and live-action Lilo and Stitch film.
