Rapunzel Salvation

We’ve known for awhile now that Disney’s upcoming fairytale animated film was renamed Tangled, even though it was based off the classic Brothers Grimm story Rapunzel, about a princess whose tower-length hair helps her to fall in love with a wandering prince. One could easily deduce that Disney was trying to appeal to a broader audience with the new title, but now an article by the Los Angeles Times spells out their reasoning precisely: getting more boys into the theater.

Disney’s Rapunzel Retitled Tangled

Tangled

Walt Disney Animation Studios’s 2010 computer animated release Rapunzel has been retitled Tangled. Producer Roy Conli explains:

“Hey everyone, I’m Roy Conli, producer of Disney’s next animated film. I have some exciting news to share, and it was important to me that YOU guys – the Disney fans – hear it first. I want to tell you about Walt Disney Animation Studio’s 2010 release, Tangled. It’s a really fresh,  smart take on the Rapunzel story. In our film, the infamous bandit Flynn Rider meets his match in the girl with the 70 feet of magical golden hair. We’re having a lot of fun pairing Flynn, who’s seen it all, with Rapunzel, who’s been locked away in a tower for 18 years. I’m so proud of the crew working on this film – they’re doing a fantastic job creating an awesome story with great characters and a stunning world – and it’s all going to look amazing in 3D. All of us  here at the studio are incredibly excited for you to see Tangled when it comes out in theaters this November.”

First Look: Disney’s Rapunzel

Rapunzel logo

Walt Disney Studios has released a new concept art rendering and logo art from their upcoming Christmas 2010 animated feature film Rapunzel. Click on the image to see it in super high resolution. It should be noted that the image below is an older image of Rapunzel, before they revamped (the project was originally titled Rapunzel Unbraided).

Directed by Glen Keane and Dean Wellins, this new telling of the classic fairy tale, will transport audiences “to a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses. Expect adventure, heart, humor, and hair…lots of hair.”

Rapunzel Concept Art

Director Glen Keane wants this computer animated film to look and feel like a traditional hand-drawn Disney Classic, but in 3D. A short clip of test footage was shown at Siggraph 2005, where is gained a lot of attention. Apparently they will be using a non-photorealistic rendering technique which will make the surface look like it is painted but still containing depth and dimensions. The movie’s visual style is being based on French Rococo artist Jean-Honore Fragonard’s painting “The Swing”.
