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.

The cast of THIS IS US is on the cover of this month’s Variety magazine, which features a great article about the show and its formula to success. One of the pages features a beautiful quote by Mandy on what the show represents to her “I’ve maybe had one other instance in 15, 16 years of doing this where the affection and love you have for a project is matched by the affection and love the audience has for it. That’s so rare an special”. Both the scans and the photoshoot have been added to our photo gallery, thanks to our friend on Twitter @Mandy_MooreFan.

Mandy and Milo Ventimiglia talked to The New York Times recently about the public’s unexpected appreciation for THIS IS US. The article also featured a new picture of the stars, which has been added to our photo gallery.

Mandy Moore and Milo Ventimiglia, stars of the NBC drama “This Is Us,” were on the set one day last month, sitting in their fictional family’s living room, as they discussed a fairly remarkable feat: how network TV can still create hits.

Ms. Moore said she realized “This Is Us” was gaining real steam after a couple of unusual things happened: There were raves from people who usually watch “the cool show on Amazon,” not over-the-air TV; then there was praise from, of all people, Sarah Silverman, the caustic comedian, who has taken to Twitter armed with adoration. (“I’m a puddle of tears,” she tweeted recently, among some profanities.)

“I’m like ‘Whaaat?’ I would never have thought she would have been watching,” Ms. Moore said.

Mr. Ventimiglia jumped in to add: “You’re, like, HBO. What are you doing on NBC?”

“This Is Us,” which airs on Tuesday nights, is the biggest hit for the broadcast networks since “Empire” sent shock waves through the industry two years ago. NBC has taken the bold step of already renewing the show for a second and third season, even though just 13 episodes have aired. And as with the meteoric rise of “Empire,” “This Is Us” has seen its audience growing week to week; the most recent episode drew 14.6 million viewers, according to Nielsen data covering three days of delayed viewing.
