Disney’s ‘Tangled’ Hi-Res International Poster Leaves Flynn Rider Hanging by a Hair

French poster for Disney's TangledOur good friends at Animatie.blog.nl have given us a look at this vibrant French poster for Disney’s Tangled (a.k.a Rapunzel, a.k.a. Raiponce).

In the poster, Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) finds himself at the mercy of Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) and cham-pal Pascal as he finds himself dangling from the hidden tower. Apparently 18 years of home-study hasn’t gone wasted on Rapunzel who has learned the importance of simple machines such as the pulley and might also be interested in teaching Flynn the concept of terminal velocity.

To view the poster at its original size, click on the thumbnail and then on the re-size icon on the image.

Disney Fears ‘Toy’ May Get Burned by ‘Dragon;’ Abandons Coveted Annies

The most successful animated film of all time, Disney/Pixar’s Toy Story 3, will not be recognized this year by one of the most highly prized awards in the animation industry — at least if Disney can help it.

The Walt Disney Company is withdrawing sponsorship and consideration from the International Animated Film Society, ASIFA-Hollywood and its 38th annual Annie Awards which is scheduled to take place on February 5, 2011 at UCLA Royce Hall in Los Angeles, CA. This represents the first time in the award’s near-forty year history that Disney will not be sponsoring the event in some capacity.
