From "Unbraided" to "Tangled," this is the Disney version of the "Rapunzel" fairy tale. Well, the studio just released the teaser trailer for the film, and in a word -- underwhelming!
I thought Disney is on its way to going back to cool old school animation via last year's "Princess and the Frog." But upon checking out "Tangled" teaser (below), I was a bit....disappointed.
The film feels cheesy and cold, and very direct-to-DVD amateur hour! Which was, yes, a disappointment especially hearing that the animators supposedly invented new technology to make the CGI images look like they were hand-drawn. No, they all look lifeless, dead...
"Tangled" features voice work from Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, and Ron Pearlman and is supposed to open November 24th of this year. Let's hope and pray that the great John Lasseter will realize their prized "Tangled" looks fangled!
Here's more "Tangled" info from Yahoo:
When the kingdom's most wanted -- and most charming -- bandit Flynn Rider hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel, a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs.
