After receiving the healing powers from a magical flower, the baby Princess Rapunzel is kidnapped from the palace in the middle of the night by Mother Gothel. Mother Gothel knows that the flower’s magical powers are now growing within the golden hair of Rapunzel, and to stay young, she must lock Rapunzel in her hidden tower. Rapunzel is now a teenager and her hair has grown to a length of 70-feet. The beautiful Rapunzel has been in the tower her entire life, and she is curious of the outside world. One day, the bandit Flynn Ryder scales the tower and is taken captive by Rapunzel. Rapunzel strikes a deal with the charming thief to act as her guide to travel to the place where the floating lights come from that she has seen every year on her birthday. Rapunzel is about to have the most exciting and magnificent journey of her life. Written by Douglas Young.
Tangled is the newest, it’s actually the 50th animation from Walt Disney, and it stars the story of Rapunzel and her hair. Apparently, Disney really loves the idea of the name Flynn. I saw both Tron and Tangled and they both have the name Flynn in them. Not sure what that means exactly, but nevertheless, and the story is of course Rapunzel — they’ve taking some liberties with the original story, but it is fun. And they do have a charming guy who’s sort of an outcast, outlaw and he is going to rescue Rapunzel or she’s going to rescue him. It’s a fun story. The animation is fairly impressive. There aren’t as many singing and dancing numbers, so some people have not liked this as well. But I think they’re wrong. I think this is a charming story that will appeal to a lot of people. Donna Murphy plays the evil mother. Zachary Levi, whom I don’t know, but is adorable is Flynn, and Mandy Moore plays Rapunzel. Give it three and a half stars.
