You know how fans find connections between different movies in the Pixar world? Well apparently that happens in Disney movies as well, as someone’s found a definite connection between Frozen and Tangled, and possibly all the way back to The Little Mermaid. More
We met Mandy Moore from her 1999 single “Candy” and although she was often lumped in with the Disney girls, her career had the opposite trajectory: She started as a singer, then branched out as an actress.
