Some audiences have noted certain similarities between Moore, and her character Rapunzel, such as their facial features and personality. Also, Moore is famous for frequently changing her hairstyle and color from short and brown, to long and blonde, or vice versa, similar to Rapunzel. Furthermore, Rapunzel is seen barefoot throughout the majority of the film. Likewise, it is a known fact that Mandy Moore, as a singer, enjoys performing barefoot.
Although Mandy Moore has voiced Rapunzel in the majority of her appearances since the film, she was unable to reprise her role as Rapunzel in Kingdom Hearts III, where instead the role was given to Kelsey Lansdowne, due to schedule conflicts with her own series, This is Us. Ironically, Mandy was in the first Kingdom Hearts game where she voiced the Final Fantasy character, Aerith.
