Disney has lastly made Tangled, a film about Rapunzel!

Having taken Disney almost 70 years to get there, Tangled realizes the studio’s long-held ambition to fetch the legend of Rapunzel to the big screen. THIS is the movie you will be advising to friends by saying, "You have got to go see it for the horse!".

The horse in question is called Max, one of the funniest characters Disney have ever created, up there with Robin Williams' genie in Aladdin - and he doesn't even speak.

  • Rapunzel (voiced by Mandy Moore)
  • Flynn Ryder (Zachary Levi)
  • Mother Gothel (Donna Murphy)
  • THE BIG 5-0
It's just one of the reasons to watch this retelling of the Rapunzel story. At £160million it is the most luxurious animated film ever made. But more highly, Disney's 50th animated characteristic marks the dawn of a new era for the studio. One in which they have effectively married their traditional storytelling with modern comedy and the latest animation techniques.

You know the classic story: Rapunzel is a princess with a huge barnet who is kidnapped as a baby and locked in a tower. Then a handsome thief rescues her after she whacks him over the head with a frying pan. There are some singing thugs, a chameleon called Pascal and of course there's the aforementioned angry horse.

The classic Rapunzel story. Contrast to the likes of Toy Story 3, the themes here of boy and girl falling in love feel old-fashioned.

It's the top songs, stunning 3D visuals including an astonishing dam-bursting sequence, funny script and laugh-out-loud physical comedy that make this a hugely pleasant experience for kids and adults alike.
