Taylor Swift as Rapunzel: Is She the New Disney Princess?
Taylor Swift is still probably best known for her singing career – a career that has won her millions of fans and multiple Grammys. But Swift has also branched out into acting, starring in ‘Valentine’s Day,’ providing her voice to ‘The Lorax’ and even hosting ‘SNL.’ And now you can see Taylor Swift star as Rapunzel for Disney.
While Disney recently updated the classic Rapunzel story in the animated film ‘Tangled,’ they’ve cast Taylor Swift as Rapunzel in a new ad campaign for Disney Parks.
The official Disney Parks and Resorts site today debuted the first image in the new campaign starring Taylor Swift as Rapunzel. The photo is just one of the Disney Dream Portrait series from famed photographer Annie Liebowitz. Previous photos have included Olivia Wilde as the Evil Queen, Rachel Weisz as Snow White, Tina Fey as Tinkerbell, Jessica Biel as Pocahontas, Beyonce as Alice in Wonderland and Scarlett Johnasson as Cinderella.
And we’ve got to say, Taylor Swift has got the Rapunzel role down pat.
While we don’t know what this means to Taylor Swift actually playing a Disney princess on film, she’s certainly got the look, the acting chops and the voice to pull it off. Check out a behind-the-scenes video of Taylor Swift as Rapunzel below, as well as more photos from the Disney Dream Portrait series.
