Donna Murphy joins Rapunzel

Spidey star Donna Murphy joins Disney’s Rapunzel

Spider-Man 2’s Donna Murphy is joining Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi in Disney’s animated movie Rapunzel.

Byron Howard and Nathan Greno (Bolt) are directing the musical comedy, which reimagines the Grimm fairy tale of the girl with the magic golden tresses. Murphy, working in animation for the first time, will voice Mother Gothel, the witch who keeps Rapunzel prisoner in a tower that had no doors or stairs.

Alan Menken is working on the music for the movie, which will be presented in 3D and released next year during the holidays.
