A Modern Twist on the Fable Rapunzel Unravels This Spring!
Disney’s 50th Animated Feature Film
March 29, 2011
I’m sure that most of us already know the original story of Rapunzel and her golden hair. Disney has put a new spin on this classic story and created a masterpiece.
Rapunzel has lived her entire life imprisoned in a tower and held captive by her greedy mother. All Rapunzel wanted for her 18th birthday was to view the mysterious floating lanterns that appear every year on her birthday.
Flynn Rider stumbled upon Rapunzel’s mysterious tower while trying to escape from his pursuers. After conking Flynn on the head a few times with a frying pan, Rapunzel decides to trust Flynn to help her get to the floating lights.
Kaytlin took Emma to see Tangled in the theatres and informed me that I had to purchase a copy when it came out on DVD. I took her advice and when it arrived… Emma and I had a girl’s afternoon watching Tangled.
I have always loved Disney movies… all of them. Somehow, Tangled has climbed the ladder and become my all time favorite. The character development, the story line… all of it is entrancing and you get sucked into the movie without even knowing it. Tangled mixes humor, passion, drama and adventure with top notch animation.
Best of all, Disney has presented us with a princess who blossoms from a meek and compliant young girl into a young woman with confidence and spunk. She learns to not be afraid to chase your dreams… this is the type of role model I wouldn’t mind my princess emulating.
