Crossfire | Flynn & Rapunzel (Tangled). [UVC]

Rapunzel, voiced by Mandy Moore, made her debut as the newest Disney Princess in the new animated film “Tangled.” A modern twist on the classic fairy-tale Rapunzel, the movie combines comedy, life-like characters, and a surprisingly romantic love story together to make a cute, classic Disney movie.

When Rapunzel’s mother, the queen, was about to give birth, she fell ill. To save her, everyone in the kingdom went looking for the legendary magical flower with wondrous healing properties. They find the flower and give it to the queen, and she is at once healthy again and gives birth to a healthy baby girl with shimmering blonde hair.

Meanwhile, the old hag Gothel, voiced by Donna Murphy, who has kept herself alive for hundreds of years by singing a special song to the flower, sneaks into the palace and kidnaps the baby girl, whose hair now has the same magical quality of the flower. But, if cut, the hair looses its power, turns brown, and doesn’t grow again.

So, Gothel hides the baby in a tower in a secret part of the kingdom for years, raising her as her own daughter, and names her Rapunzel. This way she can keep her for herself, and stay young forever.

Everything changes on Rapunzel’s 18th birthday, when she asks if she can venture out of the tower to see the lights that appear every year on the day of her birthday. Gothel, her “mother,” says no. Then, the intriguing character Flynn Rider, voiced by Zachary Levi, enters the scene. He’s a wanted thief, and climbs up into the tower to hide. Rapunzel takes the treasure he’s stolen (the lost Princess’ crown) and won’t give it back to him until he takes her to see the lights.

From there, the movie turns into a wild adventure, with quirky, funny characters and beautiful scenery. The unlikely couple makes friends with thugs at the Snuggly Duckling tavern, falls in love, and tries to escape from Gothel and the evil Stabbington Brothers.

“Tangled” is also the most expensive animated film to date, with a budget of around $260 million, and, like most new movies, it is shown in 3D as well as the regular 2D.

This movie is a must-see for all fairy-tale fans, or really for anyone who likes a cute, funny animated movie. With memorable characters, a heart-warming love story, and comedic fun, “Tangled” claims its rightful position as a great Disney animated film.
