Break out the shampoo, it’s the new trailer for Rapunzel-centric TANGLED
Rapunzel, Rapunzel...let down your hair. In an odd move, Disney decided to rename their upcoming animated film RAPUNZEL to the less recognizable TANGLED. That would make sense if it was more of a deconstruction of the classic tale in the style of ENCHANTED, but this new trailer shows moments we all know and love from the original story. There are some pretty major changes, though - Rapunzel escapes the tower in the first reel, the prince is now a thief, and his horse suddenly knows how to fence. Odd.
Check out the trailer for TANGLED, with voice performances by Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore, after you climb past the jump!
Let's face it. The story of Rapunzel probably needed an update if it wanted to stand a chance at keeping small children from running around the theater screaming and flailing around like they were going to explode if they didn't see daylight within the hour. The original tale is a little stale and static, and needed to be more adventurous and dynamic. The trailer is definitely full of energy, and this one has a chance at finding a place in the annals of classic Disney animation, methinks.
