Donna Murphy Joins “Rapunzel” Cast

Donna Murphy (“Spider-Man 2,” “Star Trek: Insurrection”) has joined the voice cast of Disney’s 3D animated musical comedy “Rapunzel” says The Hollywood Reporter.

The story reimagines the Grimm fairy tale and centers on Rapunzel (Mandy Moore), who is kidnapped from her parents’ castle as child and locked in a hidden tower before escaping with the help of a bandit (Zachary Levi).

Murphy will voice Mother Gothel, the witch who keeps Rapunzel prisoner in a tower that had no doors or stairs.

Byron Howard and Nathan Greno (“Bolt”) are directing while Alan Menken is handling the film’s music.
