Last Saturday I had the opportunity to see TANGLED prior to general release. I remember in high school some of my friends who had to see movies the first night of release – this was WAY cooler than that!
So, since I was one cool mom with advanced screening tickets, I invited a mom friend and her 5 year old daughter to join us. My friend let me do the honors of telling her daughter where we were headed – to see the newest Disney movie! She was so excited to see a Disney movie in the theater. Being the bearer of great news was a wonderful way to start our Saturday mornning!
In case you have not seen the trailers for TANGLED (where have you been???), the movie is a modern take on the story of Rapunzel. It also holds the honors of being Disney’s 50th animated movie. Voicing the lead characters of Flynn Rider and Rapunzel are Zachary Levi and Mandy Moore. I loved hearing Zachary’s voice throughout the movie (ok, yea, I do have a bit of a crush on him).
Overall, I really liked the movie. There was one scene that really resonated with me, and I think it most likely would with many people reflecting on their teenage years. I really think the scene where Rapunzel is struggling with her decision to leave or stay in her tower really rang true. I can remember having similar feelings of internal struggle growing up – though I do not think mine was quiet as comical as Rapunzel’s!
Oh, and did I mention the movie was in 3D? Probably my most favorite movie-going experience at this screening was watching the reaction of my friends daughter. She would take her glasses off and on to see what the changes in the movie screen would look like. And she took such delight in reaching out to try to touch the bubbles or the birds or whatever happened to be leaping out from the screen. It really added a bit of magic to the entire experience!
TANGLED swings into theaters everywhere on Wednesday, November 24th in Disney Digital 3D!
