About a Disney Anniversary: The Fun of ‘Tangled,’ 10 Years Later

by 

Ten years ago, a little animated film called Tangled appeared in theaters. The film, from Disney, re-imagines a classic fairy-tale, and features beautiful vocals plus some pretty animation too. While it may not be one of Disney’s most loved films, it is a good one, and so today we look at Tangled ten years later.

The plot is a Rapunzel-esque plot about a young girl kept isolated in a tower for the majority of her life. The women who keeps her here is the woman she calls “mother,” and anytime she wants to see Rapunzel, all she has to do is climb the girl’s hair. By happenstance, adventurer Flynn Rider meets with Rapunzel’s trusty frying pan, and together, they set out on an adventure neither could predict.

As I reflect on one of my favorite Disney films (of recent years), I thought I’d share a few of my favorite things about Tangled in celebration of its tenth year.


Tangled Ten Years Later


1: COLOR

The “look” of this film is pretty stunning, and much of this is driven by the color. The greens (which is sort of like the “first” we see of the world experienced through Rapunzel’s eyes) is lush which then sets up for the richer hues of a night sky (like the lantern scene).

2: DREAMING

This fosters dreams because of Rapunzel’s desire to see something she has never before seen.

3: [THE] LANTERNS

This is kind of a silly add-on, but this scene is just so pretty, and well done. It’s also a lovely little romantic scene sure to remind you of Disney’s classic The Little Mermaid.

4: MUSIC

This one has lots of gorgeous soundtrack music for us to become lost in, and furthermore what’s best about it is it doesn’t overwhelm the story. This is one of my biggest pet peeves in musical stories; I don’t like the music to overtake good plot or character development.

5: SIDE CHRARACTERS

The side characters are always fun, but what I love about Max (a determined white horse) is that he has a personality all his own. He doesn’t have a voice (which I like), but he’s nonetheless his own personality, which makes him a fun addition. tangled ten years later

6: VOICE TALENT

Even though we don’t see the talents of Mandy Moore (as Rapunzel) or Zachary Levi (as Flynn), they are very “present” in their characters, and of course, the vocals (songs) are stunning.

7: WONDERMENT

Perhaps what I love best about this film is the sense of wonderment it evokes in the way Rapunzel sees the world. She sees the world with a sense of childlike wonder, and it’s lovely. Would that we all look at the world (in terms of the beauty of it) more like this. There is beauty everywhere, we just don’t slow down to see it.

  1. I’ve actually never seen this movie, which is surprising because I love Disney and all the princess movies. It’s one of my sister’s favorites!
