Disney Animations new story Tangled, based on the story of Rapunzel, has been a long time coming.  It’s nice that the old animations group was able to have a huge hit like this when everyone wants to write  them off and give all the credit to Pixar.  Having both teams firing on all cylinders is a good thing for Disney, for sure.   This story is a nice twist on the old story.  The original story was so dark and sad, that the twists they threw into this one to liven it up are a great improvement for a feature film.  The idea is that a drop of sunlight dripped to earth and created a magic flower.  An old crone found the flower and hid it from the world, but it had the ability to heal and to restore one’s youth.  Meanwhile the Queen is about to give birth and she falls very ill.  The king sends out all his soldiers to search for the rumored magic flower and finds it.  Rapunzel is born and has golden hair which has the same abilities.  She’s stolen away by the old crone and put in a high tower to keep her secret away from the world.

The colors and shades of this animated film are beautiful.  It’s also in 3D and with the CGI animation, the characters look like real people.  Rapunzel is such a lovely girl, and she’s truly worthy of the princess title and the rest of the characters are very good.  Like most films,  Rapunzel has a sidekick.  This time it’s a chameleon that is her companion in the lonely tower.   The feeling of this film reminds me more of Mulan than anything with the thieves and thugs and nasty bad guys throughout, but Disney has another big hit with this one.  It has all the stuff that makes Disney films great.  Evil witches, not so bad boy heroes that redeem themselves,  and animals for humor.  Everyone from children to great-grandparents should love this fairy tale.  Great film!  The voice characters are perfect as well.
