Although there is just a smidge of new animation and quite a bit of concept art shown in the featurette, nothing too surprising has been revealed that those who aren’t already familiar with the story of Rapunzel couldn’t surmise (that and the poorly guarded secret that Rapunzel’s hair has magic properties). One interesting observation however is that of the birthday lanterns. Featured prominently in the original concept art released for the film as well as becoming the inspiration of a Christmas tree ornament from Disney Store, Mandy Moore briefly explains that they appear every year on Rapunzel’s birthday, but falls short of explaining anything further other than Rapunzel’s curiosity. Jakks Pacific will also soon be releasing a birthday lantern of their own (which we managed to get our hands on) for the film which plays an instrumental loop from a piece titled I See the Light.
