Rapunzel is a fictional character who appears in Walt Disney Pictures' 50th animated feature film Tangled (2010) and its sequel Tangled Ever After (2012). In both appearances, Rapunzel is voiced by recording artist and actress Mandy Moore. During the beginning of Tangled, a young Rapunzel is voiced by child actress Delaney Rose Stein.

Created and animated by supervising animator Glen Keane, Rapunzel is loosely based on the main character of the German fairy tale by The Brothers Grimm. In the Disney adaptation, for which the character was adapted into a less passive and more proactive rendition of herself, Rapunzel, a princess born with long, magical golden hair, is abducted as an infant and raised by a vain woman named Mother Gothel, who exploits her hair's unique healing abilities in order to remain youthful for several years. Locked by Gothel in a secluded tower for eighteen years, where she is kept unaware of her true identity, Rapunzel enlists the help of a thief named Flynn Rider to see the floating lanterns in time for her birthday.

Critical reception towards Rapunzel has been generally positive, with critics complimenting her spirited, lively personality and independence. Chronologically the 10th Disney Princess, Rapunzel was officially inducted into the line-up on October 2, 2011, becoming the franchise's first computer-animated member. Her physical appearance and personality have drawn much comparison between her and preceding Disney Princess Ariel from The Little Mermaid (1989), by whom she was inspired.
