Tangled is a 2010 American computer animated musical adventure movie which was released by
Walt Disney Pictures, it is loosely based on the fairy tale ‘Rapunzel’.
There are many factors that distinguish Tangled from all other Disney princess movies.
Tangled has been my personal favorite and anyone who watches it falls for this adventure musical instantly.
Tangled also covers the little details of the modern world which is another reason why it is different from the usual princess movies.
Another reason which makes it so special is that many people especially girls and women out there
can easily relate to Rapunzel, she is a determined and multi-talented girl who knows how to take
care of herself in every aspect also adding to the fact that many people could relate themselves to
Rapunzel during the lock-down amidst the on-going pandemic since Rapunzel was also kept away from the outside world.
What makes Rapunzel unique
1)She is not a damsel in distress
Some of the most fascinating facts about the details of this movie is that how she manages to take
care of every situation despite being locked away from the real world for almost 18 years.
The most hilarious parts being just like any other common girl she uses the Pan to protect herself
later she also manages to save Eugene from getting caught by the soldiers.
All of this depicts how Rapunzel is a unique princess who doesn’t need a prince to protect herself ,
she knows how to take care of herself.
2)Rapunzel is an all rounder
In the song ‘Wonder when will my life begin’ it has been seen how Rapunzel manages to make
use of her time when she is alone in the tower,
She does all her house hold chores including baking,knitting and reading.
She is also a very good painter and had painted all the walls of her tower apart from all this she also
knows how to protect herself after all there is that Pan for the self preservation.
3)Eugene is a perfect companion
Apart from being the thief Eugene is a very good man, he agrees to help Rapunzel and also tells her
his real name which is not Flynn Rider but Eugene Fitzherbert , he helps her and also comes back for
her in the end and their cute love story makes them all the more adorable
4) The movie
The music , the songs and of course Mandy Moore’s voice blend altogether to make a perfect combination ,
from the cute face to Rapunzel’s hair and to her voice every bit of this movie is a true fairy tale , how
beautifully every little details have been perfected from naughty Pascal (Rapunzel’s pet
chameleon) to mighty Maximus(the horse), perfection is what Tangled is.
I also find the whole movie to be a bundle of cuteness which gives us huge number of giggles and
I would personally recommend anyone to watch this beautiful magical musical.
The movie starts with a drop of sunlight falling on to the Earth and which grew a magical flower
capable of healing illness, decay, and injury.
The flower was first discovered by an old lady who used the power of the flower to make herself young again,
The old woman named Mother Gothel, used the powers for many years until the queen of the
nearby kingdom got sick with the baby and the soldiers came in search of the flower to save the Queen,
The soldiers find the flower and take it away to heal their Queen, so it happens the queen gives
birth to a beautiful golden haired princess;
Mother Gothel secretly enters the princess’ chamber and sings the very song she used to regain her
youth and discovers that the hairs have the magical power and they start glowing when Mother
Gothel cuts a bit of the hair so that she can use the power of the flower, the strand of the hair loses power.
Gothel then abducts the baby princess and raises Rapunzel as her own daughter in an isolated tower.
In order to hide Rapunzel from the rest of the world , Mother Gothel lies to her about the outside
world and tells her that she has kept her locked away just to save her from the cruel world.
Every year on Rapunzel’s birthday the king and queen released thousands of lanterns in the night
sky in the remembrance of their lost daughter;
Rapunzel is intrigued by the lanterns and wishes to see them personally and not just from her Tower,
On the eve of her 18th birthday, Rapunzel, who sees the lanterns each year on her birthday, asks
Gothel to see them personally but she reluctantly refuses , Rapunzel is disheartened but on the
same day earlier a thief name Flynn Rider and entered the tower unknown of the fact that
somebody lived their , he had just flee after stealing the crown of the lost princess,
Flynn aka Eugene
Rapunzel hits him with her pan and he faints, since she had not seen a single person other than
Mother Gothel she gets scared of him but when she sees that he has no pointy tooth or scary face
and that she can take care of herself she gets determined.
She hides Flynn in her closet and does not tell Gothel about him after she forbids Rapunzel from
leaving the tower,
When Gothel leaves Rapunzel threatens Flynn with her Pan and tells him that she has hidden his
satchel and will only give it to him if he takes her to see the floating lights or the lanterns,
They both set off for the journey , during the journey Rapunzel discovers many things including the
fact that she is the lost princess , in the end when Eugene or Flynn Rider tries to save Rapunzel from
Gothel he is stabbed by Gothel but when Rapunzel goes to save him he cuts off her hair removing
the magic from them , seeing herself becoming old again Gothel turns mad and falls off the tower,
when Eugene dies in her arms Rapunzel cries and mourns him when her tear drop falls on him his
wounds heal and Eugene gets saved, turns out Rapunzel had magic in her tear drops as well not
only the hair.
Ending is a happy one , she returns to her true family and marries Eugene and its a happily ever after.
