Zachary Levi considers returning as Flynn in a live-action ‘Tangled‘ remake if Florence Pugh plays Rapunzel. He finds it amusing because his real last name is Pugh, creating a playful ‘Pugh Pugh!’ moment in the movie.
Levi addresses rumors that Pugh is Disney’s top choice for the role of Rapunzel in a live-action ‘Tangled’ movie.
Levi said, “There was this thing floating around the internet, I just saw it, somebody sent it to me, that Florence Pugh potentially might play the role of Rapunzel. And If Florence plays Rapunzel, what about me? Which would also be a trip because my real last name is Pugh, p-u-g-h, Zachary Levi Pugh, so you’d have [makes pew-pew noise] in Tangled. Come on!”
‘Tangled’ is a Disney animated musical film released in 2010. It is loosely based on the German fairy tale “Rapunzel,” which was popularized by the Brothers Grimm.
The story follows a young woman named Rapunzel, who has spent her entire life trapped in a tower by an enchantress named Mother Gothel, who uses Rapunzel’s magical hair to stay young. Rapunzel’s hair has the ability to heal wounds and injuries when sung to by someone with a special song. The film was produced by Walt Disney Animation Studios and distributed by Walt Disney Pictures.
The film grossed $592 million worldwide. Its popularity led to the idea of a live-action remake. Recently, it was announced that the studio plans to make a live-action ‘Tangled’ once the WGA and SAG-AFTRA strikes end. Fans are most excited about who will play Princess Rapunzel in the remake.
