Walt Disney Animation Studios’ 50th animated feature film Tangled is out today in stereoscopic 3D and 2D, so now it’s time to have some fun. I had interviewed stars Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider) individually, so I knew the two of them together would make for a great on screen interview. Turns out, I was right. I delved into questions that are more serious individually, so this time around I wanted to lighten the mood and ask some questions they perhaps were not used to answering. Hit the jump to see the video interview as we discuss dressing up kids as Tangled characters, whether they get lifetime passes to Disneyland, why Zachary is a fan of Donald Duck, and whether wearing a band’s t-shirt to their concert is taboo.
As usual, I have time stamped the video interview so you can skip to your favorite parts. The interview is short but a lot of fun, and if you need more encouragement to see the film I have my full review up online, I have a final interview with Donna Murphy, the voice of Mother Gothel, set for tomorrow. Of course, you should also check out my video interview with Tangled directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard and my discussion with director of animation, Glen Keane. Included after the interview is a personal favorite featurette that showcases Pascal.
0:01- Asked if Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore get lifetime passes to Disneyland after making a Disney animated film.
- 0: 18- I ask if they were given any tips about the voice work sessions by the directors; also ask how long the sessions were.
- 2:02- Zachary is a big Donald Duck fan, so I was hoping to get a bit of the voice from him. Instead, he goes into detail about why he is such a fan of the character, which was actually well reasoned and interesting.
- 2:52- Looking towards the future, I wonder if either of them would ever dress up their kids (if they have some) as their characters from the film. Zachary likens that to wearing the band’s shirt to their concert and we discuss if that is taboo.
- 3:27- Mandy gets back on topic and we quickly diverge again onto their encounter with the two actors that dress as Rapunzel and Flynn at the Tangled events and how dedicated they are to staying in character.
