Rapunzel: Unbraided: According to The Hollywood Reporter, Kristin Chenoweth is in negotiations to voice a lead role in Walt Disney Animation's Rapunzel: Unbraided. She could be joined by Reese Witherspoon, who is in negotiations to voice another role in the project, with several major deal points yet to work out.

The CG-animated project marks the directorial debut of Disney veteran Glen Keane, who has worked as a supervising animator on such traditionally animated films as Treasure Planet, Tarzan, Pocahontas, Aladdin and Beauty and the Beast.

While details of the project are being closely guarded, Chenoweth would play the classic role of Rapunzel, the long-haired beauty trapped in a tower. In a new take on the tale, she encounters a modern girl and boy who have been thrust into her world.
