Cartoon Production Information:


Combined 2-D and 3-D animation.

To date, the most expensive animated film ever made with a budget of $260 million.

Originally to be Glen Keane's directorial debut.

Mark Kennedy, Adam Wilson and Melanie Wilson were initially to be the writers, with screenplay by Josann McGibbon and Sara Parriott. Music was to be by Jeanine Tesori, with songs by Amir Khalifa.

Refocused in 2003 to take a more aggressive and hip tack in story, trying to capitalize on the popularity of DreamWorks' Shrek series.

On April 12, 2007, Dean Wellins was added as co-director. Glen Keane pushed for an animation look that would resemble traditional oil paintings on canvas. Keane wanted to recreate the lunminesent, painterly quality from the painting by French Rococo artist Jean-Honore Fragonard called The Swing. Keane said, "We are using subsurface scattering and global illumination and all of the latest techniques to pull off convincing human characters and rich environment."

In October 2008, Glen Keane and Dean Wellins stepped down from the project, replaced by Byron Howard and Nathan Greno. They bring the story back to once again follow the original tale more closely.

By early 2010, a new direction was in evidence. First, in Febuary, the name "Tangled" replaced "Rapunzel." The story took a decidedly more adveturous tack, and added an Errol Flynn-type character. Disney felt that the 222 million dollars that The Princess And The Frog earned at the box office worldwide was not enough. Disney felt that the "Princess effect" was keeping half their potential market away. So this film was refocused to appeal to boys, too, and the name was changed to make it more acceptable to young men.

Original synopsis:
There goes the prince to deliver Rapunzel from the high tower where the evil witch got her imprisoned. However, when he gets there and asks Rapunzel to throw her long braided hair for him to climb on it, she says she cut it. According to her magazine VOG (Vanity Of the Goddess), it is more fashionable to have short hair...

Commentary:


I went out to Have­lock North to see this film. I could have seen it in Napier but I wanted to see the film that fol­lowed this one so it made sense to see both at the same theatre.

I went to the 5.30 p.m ses­sion on Jan­u­ary 2nd. There were four chil­dren who went ahead of me. The woman on the counter called me ‘a big kid’ for see­ing Tan­gled.



Her com­ment again high­lights so much adult prej­u­dice with ani­ma­tion. It is just not the sole domain of chil­dren. In the film Rapun­zel is almost eigh­teen. The kids watch­ing it with me were no older then ten. What do they know about being a teenager? I, as an, adult had more under­stand­ing of the char­ac­ters than a child could.

I really can’t fig­ure this men­tally out. There is just a raft of good qual­ity ani­ma­tion com­ing out and most adults don’t really real­ize what they are miss­ing. As I’ve said pre­vi­ously I love ani­ma­tion. It, like hor­rors, west­erns, dra­mas, etc, are a genre, and like all gen­res there is the good, the aver­age, and the awful.

Tan­gle is in the good cat­e­gory . In my opin­ion it is one of the best ani­mated Dis­ney films in some years. The ani­ma­tion is just bril­liant, the songs are snappy, and the humor is of a very high stan­dard. I just can’t fault any­thing in this film. I truly loved it. In fact so much so I have since seen it again here in Napier! My two nephews raved about it and I have found the chil­dren I’ve spo­ken to have been pos­i­tive towards it. The few adults who have seen it have been full of praise.

It really is the Dis­ney stu­dio at their very best. Rapun­zel is a lovely char­ac­ter with an unbe­liev­ab­ley neat lit­tle fig­ure!! But my favorite char­ac­ter was Max­imus the horse. I find that no other stu­dio human­izes ani­mals and makes them a stand alone char­ac­ter like Dis­ney. Max­imus is a great exam­ple of this. He starts out being tough and staunch but as the rela­tion­ship between Flynn Rider and Rapun­zel deep­ens his heart soft­ens. At first he and Rider hate each other and con­stantly fight, which brings some of the fun­ni­est moments of the film.

Like all ani­ma­tion it has the moral tone. It is very sub­tle and in my expe­ri­ence most kids never pick it up. They like ani­ma­tion for the humor, and I have always found that is what kids talk about after a film. But I aren’t say­ing it shouldn’t be there. It adds to a sto­ry­line and kids shouldn’t be sub­jected to the com­pli­ca­tions of the adult world. So the moral­ity is a good thing.

It is in a nut shell a film every­one can watch. It is aimed as a fam­ily film but any­one of any age will enjoy it. It is an ani­mated film of the high­est qual­ity, in fact I don’t think they come much better!

See it and enjoy, as it will not disappoint!!!
