On March 29th, Disney will bring Tangled home to Blu-ray and DVD, as well as downloadable formats. Tangled retells Rapunzel, the classic fairy tale by the Brothers Grimm. In addition to offering a fresh take on the iconic story, the film is also the 50th animated feature in the Walt Disney Animated Classics series, appropriately lofting yet another Princess to Disney lore. John Lasseter, of Pixar megafame, was key to the development of the movie, helping to craft the production and storytelling, maximizing both the humor and the heart. Wouldn’t it be interesting to hear his thoughts on them? Of course! So take a look at this exclusive Q&A interview with John Lasseter, and let us know if you agree with his perspective!

Disney’s Tangled triumphs at the box office

Disney's Tangled triumphs at the box office

Just one week after narrowly losing the top spot to Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Disney’s Tangled brings Rapunzel’s tale to the top spot at this past weekend’s box office. Granted, both were much lower, comparatively, than they were the week earlier, but the battle of wizards and princesses continued to wage between them. Megamind, the only other animated tale on the list for both weeks, dropped from third to sixth, but still managed to pull in another five million, bringing the DreamWorks Animation film’s total to 136 million. Check out the full box office ranking, and let us know what you saw!

Harry Potter tops Rapunzel's Tangled at the box office

Wizards and princesses topped the list this weekend at the box office, as Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows narrowly beat out Tangled for the number one spot. Harry’s adventure was in the second week, forging another strong tally after bringing in a whopping $125 million during last week’s debut. And though the top spot was taken, Disney’s latest Princess adventure made a very strong showing, just barely losing out to the Harry Potter juggernaut. Rapunzel’s tale (tail??) wasn’t alone in the rankings for CG toons, either, with DreamWorks’ Megamind in third place – a distant third, but still pretty good for it’s fourth week, bringing the total to over $130 million. Take a look at the full box office ranking, and let us know what you were watching this week!

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.

On November 24th, Disney will welcome a new Disney Princess to their collection: the first since the Princess and the Frog’s Tiana. This time, the House of Mouse is going back to the Brothers Grimm for another tale, Rapunzel, remaking the classic as Tangled. So much effort is being put into the visuals and animated style of the film, which will be the 50th animated classic from Disney. Jean-Honoré Fragonard’s painting “The Swing” is being used as an inspirational point for the film, along with Disneyland’s Fantasy Land. The goal is to make the 3D and CG film play out more like a traditional, hand-drawn Disney Classic, offering “The Best of Both Worlds,” so said director Glen Keane. The trailers surely make it look like they were successful, but we’ll let you guys be the judge when you see the film!

Mother Gothel goes evil in Disney’s Tangled

Mother Gothel goes evil in Disney's Tangled

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
