Studio's animated pic, 'Tangled,' based on classic fairytale
Disney has given “Rapunzel” a new name: “Tangled.”The animated pic, a comedic reimagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale, will still unspool November 12 as a limited release, and open wide on November 24 in 3D. Roy Conli, the film’s producer, announced the new title on Disney’s Facebook page on Friday. “It was important to me that YOU guys — the Disney fans — hear it first,” he wrote, calling it “a really fresh, smart take on the Rapunzel story.” In the film, bandit Flynn Rider meets his match in the girl with the 70 feet of magical golden hair. Mandy Moore voices Rapunzel with Zachary Levi voicing the bandit. Pic will feature original music by Alan Menken (“The Little Mermarid” and “Beauty and the Beast”) and lyrics by Glenn Slater. Byron Howard (“Bolt”) helms.
