  • Before I begin the review, I must say that Disney has made quite an accomplishment in making this the 50th animated movie in their history since “Snow White” back in 1937! What an era that was!

    As for the movie, changing the title to “Tangled” from “Rapunzel” does indeed reach out well with its young audiences. The cast was well-selected, the animation was complex, yet brilliantly crafted, and the song arrangements felt traditional in terms of what the past Disney fairy tale-based films had done before, which captured my attention and kept me interested even more. After all, Mandy Moore did a stunning job providing the speaking and singing voice of Rapunzel herself. The song titled “I See the Light” was very noteworthy among them all since I felt a similar, positive feeling as I did with Aladdin’s “A Whole New World.”

    I wasn’t bored in the least on the storyline, it made me want to see more as the plot began to develop even further. At one point, I couldn’t help but feel sorry for the two main characters’ (Flynn and Rapunzel) inner struggles and how they really feel about one another, but that’s exactly what I was hoping!

    Growing up among Disney’s most memorable canon animated films throughout its history has been something I’ve followed since I was born (the late 1980s). I have seen all of the previous 49 animated movies and “Tangled” has definitely made itself worthy to reside in its rightful place as the official #50! THIS is a must-see and I think I’ll be looking forward into seeing it again and again whenever I choose!
