Mandy Moore might need help seeing the light—because this fan theory is dark. As the voice behind Disney's Rapunzel, the actress and singer weighed in on an Internet hypothesis connecting her Tangled character with Frozen and The Little Mermaid. Here's some background on the ongoing theory—first, fans noticed Rapunzel and Flynn in the crowd of attendees at Elsa's coronation in Frozen. While Disney is known to leave easter eggs hidden in films for viewers to catch, aficionados took the subtle presence of the characters one step further by coming up with a reason for why Moore's princess would attend a separate character's »
In our age of cinematic universes, it’s fun to indulge in fan theories that link movies together in creative ways. But “Tangled” star Mandy Moore thinks that one attempt by Disney fans to link her film with “Frozen” might have gone a bit too far. In “Frozen,” fans were surprised to see what looked like Rapunzel and Flynn in the crowd attending Elsa’s coronation. From that subtle Easter egg sprung a morbid fan theory: the reason why Rapunzel and Flynn were in Arendelle is because Elsa and Anna’s parents died in a shipwreck en route to Rapunzel and Flynn’s wedding, »

That’s right, I’m talking about the fourth wall-breaking confessionals, which have been a staple of the sitcom ever since it premiered in July 2013. You probably never wondered why the characters do them, but a reason was given during Friday’s finale — and, honestly, it was kind of brilliant.

“That’s a pretty morbid fan theory, »

A veteran screenwriter filed a federal lawsuit Tuesday accusing Disney of stealing his idea for the hit animated film “Zootopia.”
Gary Goldman alleges that Disney took character designs, themes, lines of dialogue, and even the name “Zootopia” from a project that he first developed in 2000. He alleges that he twice pitched the project to Disney executives, in 2000 and 2009, and was rejected. The lawsuit accuses Disney of a long history of stealing ideas from others, and contends that “Zootopia” is only the most recent example of an embedded corporate practice.
“Although The Walt Disney Company rigorously enforces its copyrights, it has developed a culture that not only accepts the unauthorized copying of others’ original material, but encourages it,” Goldman alleges. “Instead of lawfully acquiring Goldman’s work, Defendants said they were not interested in producing it and sent him on his way. Thereafter, consistent with their culture of unauthorized copying, Defendants copied Goldman’s work. »

Disney’s in-vogue trend of rebooting their animated classics shows no signs of abating, as their live-action take on 1991 masterpiece Beauty and the Beast waltzes onto screens. Starring Emma Watson and Dan Stevens in the lead roles, it’s a movie that hews pretty closely to the template of the original (with one or two additional vignettes including a new Beast solo performance), and one critical aspect of its nostalgia is the return of composer Alan Menken.
A man synonymous with the Disney brand ever since the company’s renaissance back in 1989, Menken’s return to Beauty and the Beast territory is a key factor in the new movie’s success, the composer bolstering his original, enchanting score with reworked versions of classic tunes like »

Ten-year-old Mandy Moore is too cute!
The 32-year-old actress took to Instagram on Friday to share an epic throwback pic of herself as a child, permed bangs, braces and all!
"Red carpet ready. For some inexplicable reason, my mom let me perm and temporarily color (!) my hair when I was 10. Permed bangs? Mom," Moore hilariously wrote alongside the photo. "Also, I only had those braces for 6 months (shoulda been longer cause my teeth are Not straight) but I took full advantage of the colored rubber bands for the holidays."
"Ps: there was no way I was excited about that travel version of Clue," she added. "Just saying...: »
We’re only hours away from the This Is Us finale, and the cast and crew are counting down the final episode of the season.
This Is Us creator Dan Fogelman shared a hilarious (and very Nsfw) text exchange he had with series star Milo Ventimiglia, who plays beloved patriarch Jack Pearson, after the 39-year-old actor read the finale script for the first time.

“My text exchange with @MiloVentimiglia after he read tonight’s finale,” Fogelman tweeted Tuesday, alongside a screenshot of their text chain from late January.
“Just read it,” Ventimiglia wrote Fogelman in his original text. “Holy f**k, Dan. This is gonna be heartbreaking and beautiful.”
“People are gonna go crazy. Excited to see what you guys do w it!” Fogelman wrote back.
But Ventimiglia seemed to be rendered speechless at the final season one script.
The first chapter of This Is Us is almost over!
NBC’s breakout hit wraps up its freshman season on Tuesday with the anticipated season finale, titled “Moonshadow,” and things aren’t looking so hot for beloved couple Jack (Milo Ventimiglia) and Rebecca Pearson (Mandy Moore).
In the latest episode, Jack heeded the advice of a 15-year-old daughter, Kate, stepping behind the wheel -- after having a few beers -- and making the two-hour trek to Cleveland, Ohio, where Rebecca’s first concert of a five-city tour (which happened to include an ex-beau) was kicking off, all in a last-ditch effort to fix his marriage.
Who knows what lies ahead for the couple in the immediate future, but one thing’s for sure: The honeymoon period is over.
Because we here at Et are all about Jack and Rebecca’s happier »

It’s time to return to the magical world of Corona, because Tangled is back!
The 2010 movie gets a sequel in the form of Tangled: The Series, which picks up right where we left Rapunzel and Eugene (nee Flynn Rider). The show kicks off with the Disney Channel Original Movie Tangled Before Ever After, premiering Friday night.
“It's kind of been seven years in the making almost,” star Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) gushed to Et at the movie’s Beverly Hills premiere. “It's bizarre to be here finally talking about it, we've arrived.”
The film already got a mini-sequel in the form of the 2012 short Tangled Ever After, which saw Rapunzel and Eugene make it down the aisle and wed. The new show tells the story of what happened between the movie’s final scene and that short.
“This is the story of them really, truly getting »
Imagine if your favorite Disney princess was your mom. That's the dream that came true for the young cast of This Is Us when they found out Mandy Moore, their TV mom and grandmother, was actually the voice of Rapunzel in Tangled, which is set to return as a TV series, Tangled: The Series, on Friday, March 24. "I've loved Tangled ever since it came out," Lonnie Chavis (little Randall) told E! News a screening of the Disney Channel Original Movie, Tangled Before Ever After, with his on-screen brother Parker Bates (aka little Kevin) saying, "Rapunzel's my favorite princess and when I met Mandy, I was like, 'I think you're Rapunzel, right?!'" Moore's »
Even though This Is Us is filled with some heartbreaking moments, there was a little bit of joy in this week's episode when the show stuck in a hidden Easter Egg. In two scenes - one in the present day and one in the past - Rebecca and her son, Randall, have a little saying. "I love you," Randall says. "I love you more," Rebecca responds, to which Randall says back, "I love you most." Not only is the exchange simply adorable, but it happens to be straight out the song "Mother Knows Best," from Mandy Moore's Disney film, Tangled! The actress, who has been promoting Tangled: The Series, confirmed the reference during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. "I have to imagine that [the show's creator] Dan [Fogelman] had a hand in putting that on the small screen," she said. "Everybody on Twitter was like, 'Was that a Tangled reference?' I thought »

Mandy Moore is quite literally living the dream—her dream—by playing Rapunzel in Disney's Tangled: The Series. "It honestly was one of the best jobs I've ever had. Being a Disney princess? I mean, it kind of doesn't get any cooler," Moore told E! News at the Tangled premiere event. "That was maybe my greatest dream as a child and the fact that it somehow came to fruition still boggles my mind." Tangled: The Series kicks off on March 24 the Disney Channel, after Tangled: Before Ever After debuts on March 10, and follows Moore's Rapunzel and Zachary Levi's Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert in adventures set after the 2010 flick and before the 2012 short Tangled Ever »
Mandy Moore is feeling your pain.
The This Is Us star caught up with Et one day after Tuesday’s heartbreaking episode, where Kate (Chrissy Metz) confessed that she was the reason her father, Jack (Milo Ventimiglia), is dead. The episode closed with Jack, clearly drunk, stepping behind the wheel and attempting to make the two-hour drive to fix his marriage to Rebecca (Moore), heeding to a young Kate’s advice.
“People are really upset,” Moore told Et on Wednesday while promoting Disney Channel’s Tangled: The Series. “People are bummed. But there’s one more episode, and I would caution people to let the story unfold the way that it’s going to.”
Fans went haywire on Twitter following the final scene, tweeting »
Auli'i Cravalho is taking a cue from her portrayal of Moana these days. “I think I’ve become a little more adventurous through her character,” the 16-year-old explains to Et. “I’ve traveled across the world and am able to meet all these wonderful people.” Like the Disney-animated princess who voyages across the ocean in search of a demigod named Maui, Cravalho, who voiced the title role in the film (now available on Blu-ray and Digital HD), is venturing all over New York City for the next three weeks as she tapes a live-action pilot for a new NBC show called Drama High.
“I am very excited. I get to wear scarves and coats because it's cold,” the Hawaiian native exclaims. The show centers on talented students from a working-class town in a standout high school drama department, who are enriched by their impassioned teacher. The project, which Cravalho says is more realistic than Glee, is the latest »
Mandy Moore is crying.
Given that she’s filming a scene for NBC’s breakout hit “This Is Us,” tears might as well be written into her contract. But the actress is trying to get through a particularly impassioned speech to Sterling K. Brown, who plays her adopted son, Randall, and it’s taking its toll. Take after take on the tree-lined streets of L.A.’s Hancock Park, which stands in for New Jersey, she pushes herself, the tears threatening to destroy the prosthetics that turn the 32-year-old star into a sixtysomething grandmother — until a passing bird “releases,” as Brown puts it ever so politely, on her hat.
The crew erupts in laughter, dissipating the tension that’s been building all afternoon.
Bryce Duffy for Variety
It’s that cry-until-you-laugh alchemy that has made the series the success story of the fall. The drama — which charts the lives of Rebecca and Jack Pearson (Moore and Milo »
