Haven't seen it yet? Thoughts on 'Tangled.'
Since its animated musical, The Princess and the Frog, not doing so well with audiences, those at Disney wanted their next movie to be a hit. Opting not to title the feature “Rapunzel” because they were convinced males wouldn’t want to see a movie strictly about a princess, they also entirely altered the leading male character.
The cast ensemble consists of Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy, Brad Garrett, and Mandy Moore (the last clearly gave the film its entire potential simply by tying in her voice.) The graphics have vastly improved as well, and though it doesn’t look at all like any of Disney’s past popular movies, it only goes to show audiences that this is a new age and time for animation and things are only going to get more advanced.
If you don’t count Disney’s desperate move in changing the title and male character to obtain a more balanced audience, I would rate this film well and recommend you going to see it no matter your age. Like most animated features, it is heart-warming and hits you deep with its morals, and even earns several laughs with its childish remarks.
This modern-day story of Rapunzel is armed with a frying pan, has a chameleon as a sidekick, and shows a girl following the biggest dream of her life.
