On Disney's official Facebook page, producer Roy Conli (The Hunchback of Notre Dame) announced that Walt Disney Animation Studios' next movie, Rapunzel, would now go by the title Tangled. Conli also offered a brief synopsis of the animated reimagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, but did not provide an explanation for the name change.
I have some exciting news to share, and it was important to me that YOU guys — the Disney fans — hear it first. I want to tell you about Walt Disney Animation Studio's 2010 release, Tangled. It's a really fresh, smart take on the Rapunzel story.
In our film, the infamous bandit Flynn Rider meets his match in the girl with the 70 feet of magical golden hair. We're having a lot of fun pairing Flynn, who's seen it all, with Rapunzel, who's been locked away in a tower for 18 years.
I'm so proud of the crew working on this film — they're doing a fantastic job creating an awesome story with great characters and a stunning world — and it's all going to look amazing in 3D. All of us here at the studio are incredibly excited for you to see Tangled when it comes out in theaters this November.
Tangled features the voice talents of Mandy Moore, Reese Witherspoon, Zachary Levi, Dan Fogler, Kristin Chenoweth, and Donna Murphy.
