Grossing over 400 million dollars in global theatrical sales to date, TANGLED, The Walt Disney Studios blockbuster animated feature that takes a modern twist on the famous hair-raising fable Rapunzel, debuts as the ultimate 4-Disc Disney Blu-ray Combo Pack (3D Blu-ray + Blu-ray + DVD + Digital Copy in a single package) on March 29, 2011. As the 50th full-length animated feature in The Walt Disney Studios’ celebrated library and the first animated feature film to ever debut day-and-date on Disney Blu-ray 3D, TANGLED’s uniquely packaged home entertainment release ensures that viewers of all ages can enjoy this film on a variety of superior, hi-def media platforms while diving further into the history and quirky details behind the making of this film via amusing and informative bonus features.
When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of ZACHARY LEVI) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of MANDY MOORE), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower she’s been locked away in for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief, and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an overprotective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
We were lucky enough to have been invited for a VIP viewing of this movie in the theater when it was first released. DD loved Tangled when we saw it in the theater. Since then we have visited the Disney store a number of times and stock up on a lot of Rapunzel dresses, dolls and toys for her. She had also been counting the days until she could watch the movie on her DVD player. So, you can imagine her excitement when our review copy arrived. As soon as I opened the package, she asked to watch the DVD right away. She really enjoyed watching the movie again (and I was glad to see that we can finally give the other Disney DVDs a break). I watched the movie with DD and I really like that Rapunzel is presented as a strong girl who ends up saving the her prince at the end (her tears bought him back to life) -- from that prospective, it is very different from your traditional princesses who sat around waiting for their princes to rescue them. I thought the bonus features were a lot of fun too. It came with 2 original storybook openings so you can watch them and see how the final version came to be. If you have a little girl, I would say that this is a must have DVD for her. My daughter loves it and I think it is a wonderful film as well.
