Tangled Honest Trailer

Following the box office performance of The Princess and the Frog (which was only seen as a disappointment thanks to Avatar stealing all of the attention), Walt Disney Animation Studios decided to abandon traditional 2D animation and charge into the computer animated arena with a new take on Rapunzel. However, eager to move away from the Disney princess moniker that didn’t appeal to boys as much, they called the movie Tangled, and it was the beginning of a whole new creative era for Disney.

Unfortunately, since Tangled was the first, it wasn’t quite as polished as the movies that would follow, like Frozen and Moana. In fact, while some of the characters and writing might be a little more clever in some respects, as the Tangled Honest Trailer will point out, the soundtrack isn’t exactly full of the most memorable tunes, even with music composed by Disney legend Alan Menken.

wreck it ralph 2 disney princesses

One of the most highly anticipated moments in Ralph Breaks the Internet is the scene where the Disney princesses of the House of Mouse meet the modern gamer girl, Vanellope (Sarah Silverman). More than just a glorified cameo, the scene brings back the majority of the original voice actresses and shows our favorite princesses in a new light.

But what do the princesses get up to when they’re not wielding glass slippers as weapons? Apparently, they love to lounge about in casual wear just like us. And we have been blessed with a first look at the brand new outfits that the princesses wear in their downtime.

wonder woman spoiler review

(In our Spoiler Reviews, we take a deep dive into a new release and get to the heart of what makes it tick…and every story point is up for discussion. In this entry: Patty Jenkins’ Wonder Woman.)

It’s astounding that in this day and age, when superheroes are either disillusioned or self-deprecating, that we can have a hero like Wonder Woman. In the bleak DC Cinematic Universe, where nihilism reigns supreme, here we have a hero who champions the ideas of hope, compassion, and goodness.

Diana (Gal Gadot) is not dissimilar from the Disney princesses, who have long been heroes of overwhelming empathy. They are aspirational figures who exist in an elevated reality — fairy tales themselves are metaphorical by nature, and rarely depict anything other than a black and white reality. This is Diana at the beginning of the film, the embodiment of the ultimate Disney princess, for all the gifts and faults that they have — though thankfully without the frequently troublesome depiction of an “evil” mother or stepmother figure commonly seen in fairy tales.

Tarzan - Disney Easter Eggs

Any Pixar Animation fan can tell you that the computer animation studio loves to sneak characters from their upcoming movies into the preceding releases that hit theaters. We even featured a video that shows off a kind of Russian nesting doll of Pixar characater Easter eggs. But they’re not the only ones to have some fun with their character library.

Walt Disney Animation has been putting character Easter eggs in their movies for years, and a new video points out some of them. It’s not quite as organized like the chronological Pixar video, but it does have some Disney Easter eggs that I wasn’t aware of at all. Watch below! Read More »

Tangled Sequel Trailer

Last fall we got a teaser for The Disney Channel’s new Tangled animated series. Instead of being computer animated like the original movie, this is a 2D stylized animated series that takes place after the events of the hit movie from Walt Disney Animation Studios. But before that series begins, it will be preceded by a TV movie, and the first trailer for it has just arrived.

Tangled: Before Ever After has Rapunzel and Eugene back (voiced again by Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi), and while the end of the movie saw the long, flowing blonde hair done away with in favor of a short, brunette style, it looks like that doesn’t last long. Some kind of magic gives Rapunzel back her golden locks, but I’m not entirely sure why that’s a bad thing.

Watch the Tangled sequel trailer after the jump. Read More »
