It's kind of surprising that it has taken Disney this long to make a big screen movie out of the classic fairy tale Rapunzel, but the new trailer for Tangled makes me think it was worth the wait. The upcoming CG-animated adaptation shows a sassy Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) using her rope-like hair as a weapon to keep arrogant-yet-handsome Flynn (Zachary Levi) in line. Flynn's not exactly Prince Charming though — in fact, he's actually a thief on the run, looking to hide out in Rapunzel's tower.
Disney chose to change the name of the film from Rapunzel to Tangled to appeal to a male audience, and the trailer seems to target boys as well. The focus is largely on Flynn's backstory, though Rapunzel seems pretty badass herself. That said, we'll have to wait for another trailer to get into the gooey romantic stuff. The film opens Thanksgiving weekend, but to get a taste, just read more.
