Rumor: Amber Heard Reportedly In Talks to Star in a Disney Live-Action Rapunzel
Another Disney live-action animated remake is in the works. Emma Stone’s 101 Dalmatians prequel Cruella is coming to Disney+ in May, Tom Hanks will play Geppetto for Robert Zemeckis in Pinocchio, and new versions of Peter Pan, The Sword in the Stone, Bambi, Hercules, The Little Mermaid, Robin Hood and more have all been announced, along with sequels to The Lion King and Aladdin. Now, we’re learning for a new rumor getting a lot of attention. Amber Heard is reportedly in talks to star in a Disney live-action Rapunzel.
As reported by WeGotThisCovered: “Insider Daniel Richtman is now claiming that Amber Heard has talked with the studio about playing Rapunzel in a live-action blockbuster. The classic fairy tale served as the basis for Tangled, and it felt like just a matter of time before the 21st Century’s back catalogue found itself in the crosshairs of the live-action remakes.”
“Based on a quick glance at the internet, though, the general population would definitely not be on board with the idea of the actress taking the role. Of course, Richtman has previously reported that Amber Heard was in talks to play a Disney princess, but he also said over the last several months that she’s spoken to the Mouse House about Star Wars, Pirates of the Caribbean and the MCU’s Fantastic Four. In fact, there’s barely a major Disney franchise out there that the tipster hasn’t linked her with recently and despite his solid track record, we still advise taking this with the usual grain of salt.”
We are Disney nerds. Two kids at heart who love the magic and the memories of Walt Disney World! We follow all things Disney and have great experiences with Disney Vacation Club and RunDisney events in particular. We enjoy the vacations, day trips, weekend getaways and geek out over the planning of such events. From lodging to dining to Fastpasses we have a spreadsheet for every occasion. Mike’s frivolous Disney goal is to acquire a magic band of every style while Jamie’s goal is to experience as many Disney desserts as possible. Usually there isn’t a day that passes without some discussion of the master plan of our next trip to the happiest place on earth. Most people think we’re normal – until they travel to Disney with us. We have been married for 16 years and are blessed with a daughter and a son who have already learned the importance of planning ahead! As a family we thoroughly enjoy the magic and the memories at Walt Disney World and are here to help others experience the magic as well.
