Tangled has the weight of Cinderella’s castle on it’s shoulders, as the film has the honor, and pressure, of being the 50th animated feature in Disney’s classic line. From Snow White to Bambi, Lion King to Princess and the Frog, the entire long line leads squarely to this modern day look at the Rapunzel fairy tale from the Brothers Grimm. After 5 years of development, a Pixar-less shot at CG animation for Disney, a bulk of over 70 feet of magical hair, and billed as Disney’s “final” fairytale, the film had a major amount of responsibility to uphold the classic name, both in theaters, and the four-disc Blu-ray and DVD combo pack on March 29, 2011. So? How’d it do?

The wait is over. Today, November 24th, the House of Mouse introduces Rapunzel to the world as the latest Disney Princess in the new film Tangled. The gorgeously rendered CG and 3D toon is opening up on roughly 4,000 screens across the U.S., ready to entice audiences with the modern take on the Brothers Grimm fairytale. Along with Flynn, Pascal and Maximus, Rapunzel’s goal is to escape Mother Gothel and the soaring tower, return to the kingdom where she once lived as a baby, and reach the festival to relish in her freedom — and miles of hair. Take a look at the trailer after the break, then get out there and buy your tickets for the big screen!!

Every great story needs a great villain. Star Wars has Darth Vader, Thundercats has Mumm-Ra, Scooby-Doo has … well, hundreds of different monsters and creepy old guys in masks. In Disney’s latest film, Tangled, the House of Mouse has pitted Rapunzel and Flynn Rider against a malevolent, yet funny, villainous named Mother Gothel. Not only does she have her own magical garden, but she’s also the proud owner of a secret jail tower that measures, oh, about a mile high. Oh, and did we mention she kidnaps baby princesses to be mean to, like, forever!? If that doesn’t sound evil enough to you, and you can’t wait until the film hits theaters on November 24th, just check out this clip and pictures!

With 70ft of hair, we can only imagine how much shampoo you’d go through on a daily basis. Then there’s conditioner, gel, hair spray… and geez, just imagine the time you would have to invest in brushing it! These are just some of the challenges Rapunzel must face in her newest adventure, Tangled. The CG and 3D toon film from Disney retells the story originally created by the Brothers Grimm, twisting a number of details just as the title would indicated. The main tale stars Rapunzel, of course, and her would-be dashing hero, Flynn Rider. Though, he’s not exactly the best example of a hero, nor is she the best example of a damsel in distress. Still, they make for a lovable couple, and intriguing characters. How do we know? We just checked out these two video profiles! You should do the same now, and let us know whatcha think
