As we’ve posted before, Mandy has been promoting the Tangled series on Disney’s D23 Expo this week, along with co-star Zachary Levi. They were on a panel yesterday, and even though we couldn’t get a video of it, the channel’s official website has a summary of the most important information that was shared at the event – including the confirmation that we will be getting new songs by Alan Menkin! You can read their article below.

We have three words for the Tangled: The Series presentation at D23 Expo… Best. Panel. Ever! (You had to know that was coming.)

After appearing alongside the other Disney Princesses on Friday, Mandy Moore (voice of Rapunzel) swung onstage to give Tangled its moment in the sun. And she wasn’t alone. Also in attendance were Zachary Levi (voice of Eugene), Jeremy Jordan (voice of Varian), Eden Espinosa (voice of Cassandra), Chris Sonnenburg (Executive Producer), Benjamin Balistreri (Co-Executive Producer), and Alan Bodner (Art Director). The only ones missing were Pascal and Maximus!

Aside from blessing us with Mandy and Zachary’s off-screen chemistry (the sparks are real, people), the panel shined a light on what’s to come for the colorful series, including a few fun facts and surprises. So make the clock reverse, because we’re letting those shine:

1. Eden Espinosa originally auditioned for the role of Rapunzel in Tangled (she also auditioned for Frozen).

A self-proclaimed Disney nerd, Eden originally worked as a cast member at Disney Parks before trying her hand–or voice–at acting. And the first role she auditioned for?

“Rapunzel. Obviously, I didn’t get it,” Eden said as she side-eyed Mandy (such a Cassandra move). “But when I found out Mandy got it? Look, I’ve been a huge fan of hers since… *breaking into song* ‘I’m missing you like candy!’ So when I found that out, I just thought it was perfect.”

2. The series has a clear ending—and it’s already known.

While elaborating on the series’ complex mythology, which will “wrap everything together by the end,” Balistreri revealed, “This is all planned out. We know how it’s going to end. And man, it gets you. The whole journey is something so special.” The hype is real.

Mandy was at Disney’s D23 Expo once again today! We don’t know much about her appearance, but since she was joined by Tangled Ever After co-star Zachary Levi, it seems safe to assume they were promoting the show. They were seen at the festival’s parade, along with some of the company’s most iconic characters (such as Mickey Mouse), and also signed autographs at the talent booth. Our gallery has been updated with images from the event!

Mandy attended the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, yesterday! As you probably know, she voices Rapunzel in Tangled Ever After, which makes her a part of an amazing group of actresses that have lended their voices to the most iconic princesses. She joined them on stage – Ariel (Jodi Benson), Belle (Paige O’Hara), Jasmine (Linda Larkin), Pocahontas (Irene Bedard), Tiana (Anika Noni Rose), Merida (Kelly Macdonald), Anna (Kristen Bell) – to promote their appearance in the upcoming “Wreck-It Ralph” sequel, Ralph Breaks the Internet. During an interview on the red carpet, Mandy said “I met Jodi Benson today, Ariel. She is the sole reason that I started singing. I didn’t manage to tell her that, because I didn’t want to creep her out too much [but] I will. Before the day is done, I’m going to lay that on her”.

  Photoshoots

As part of Mandy’s campaign for the upcoming Primetime Emmy Awards – in which she is a Leading Drama Actress contender for her work in the hit television show This Is Us, she sat down for a conversation with ETOnline about the paths she’s chosen in her career. It is a beautiful piece and definitely worth the read.

“I’m in a completely different chapter of my life, and I don’t begrudge anything.”

On a balmy Sunday afternoon in April, Mandy Moore lounges on a white leather couch in a corner of a bare four-star West Hollywood, California, hotel room, counting down the final minutes of a rare day of work during a picturesque spring weekend. Glam in a chic designer black dress and barely there makeup from a prior event, gone in that moment is any sign of the bubbly teenage blonde pop star singing about puppy love in “Candy.” In her place is a mature, fulfilled 33-year-old who has since demanded the world’s attention on This Is Us.

In NBC’s undisputed breakout family drama, Moore slips into the complicated world of Rebecca Pearson, wife and mother of three (twins and an adopted son), with a signature performance that’s deft and understated in its time-jumping complexities. Getting to this point in her career, though, didn’t come immediately to Moore, who at one point was best known for her pop music and teen roles in films like A Walk to Remember, The Princess Diaries and Saved!.

“It’s all led me to where I am now. I’m happy to acknowledge [the past], but also stay focused on the present,” she says honestly, referencing past credits in a candid conversation with ET. “I think it’s cool to have different chapters of your life and career and for there to be a portion of an audience out there that just knows me from [This Is Us]. I’m totally fine with it because there’s plenty of stuff in the past I’d like to forget.”
