Yesterday we brought you a series of clips from Disney’s Tangled which focused on thief (and perhaps hero) Flynn Rider which featured clips from the film not yet released. As we also reported, the series continues today, this time focusing on Rapunzel, voiced by Mandy Moore. It contains plenty of eye candy in the form of never-before-seen footage from the film, most particularly highlighting Rapunzel’s day to day activities.
Update 10/08/10 – Replaced Italian version with English version from Walt Disney Animation Studios
Our good friends at animatie.blog.nl have tipped us off to the new featurette for Disney’s Tangled, titled ‘A Hair-Raising Adventure.’ Featuring a lot of new footage (as well as some story point spoilers), directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno are joined not only by voice talent Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider) and Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) but also by Donna Murphy (Mother Gothel) whose character is prominently featured in the clip.
Tangled opens in theaters nationwide on November 24.
Photo Gallery: Cast and Crew of Disney’s ‘Tangled’ at Studios Press Event, Plus Disney Parks Meet & Greet Characters
Earlier this month, we told you about a press event for Disney’s Tangled held at the Walt Disney Animation Studios in Burbank, California. Today, Walt Disney Animation Studios has provided us with some hi-res photos from the event featuring the cast and crew of the film, including the Disney Parks meet & greet versions of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.
Having seen the photos in full detail and after learning some additional information, we believe our assertions that Rapunzel’s hair will be worked into the meet and greet scene were incorrect. Initially based on the original concept art released by Disney Parks, it would appear to be that case, but due to the following reason which would be considered a spoiler, we see that may have changed:
Of course all is subject to change since it hasn’t been mentioned explicitly that this is how they’ll be seen in the parks, but it’s a good chance this is how it will be.
In the mean time, please enjoy the following photos of directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno, producer Ray Conli, John Lasseter, Alan Menken, Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi. And, of course, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider themselves.
On a very related note, we have been invited to attend a press event for Tangled and TRON: Legacy taking place in the upcoming weeks, so stay tuned!
In addition to the release of two different versions of the trailer for Disney’s Tangled, Walt Disney Studios has provided us with five new stills that we have added to the beginning of our stills gallery below.
As always, click on the thumbnail to see a larger version of the still. You can then click the resize arrow if it appears to view the still at its original size.
Walt Disney Studios UK has released the first official full-length trailer for Disney’s Tangled, the upcoming release from Walt Disney Animation Studios. Consisting of virtually all new footage, the far-more-serious trailer is narrated by Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi) who offers his point on the time he spends with Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) and introduces much of the storyline of the film, focusing on dreams (there are, of course, sub-points/plots to the film as well). The trailer also offers a brief appearance of Hookhand who is voiced by Brad Garrett.
The US trailer, which has been released through Moviefone is substantially different, but follows along the same lines. It also includes a quick look at Rapunzel as a baby when the King and Queen launch the first of the birthday lanterns:

Walt Disney Studios has recently provided us with a slew of behind-the-scene photos, character art and concept art for its upcoming release from Walt Disney Animation Studios, Tangled. If that wasn’t enough, we also received a few additional stills, all of which we are pleased to share with you in hi-res format.
First up is some behind-the-scene photos with the voice talent from the film as they work on bringing their animated counterparts to life. Along with co-directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno, here you’ll find images of Mandy Moore (Rapunzel), Zachary Levi (Flynn Rider), Donna Murphy (Mother Gothel), composer Alan Menken, lyricist Glenn Slater, producer Roy Conli and recording artist Grace Potter (of Grace Potter and the Nocturnals), who wrote a song for the film.
Next up are three additional stills from the film which have been added to the beginning of our stills gallery below.
Next is our Disney’s Tangled character gallery which features portraits of Rapunzel, Flynn Rider, Pascal, Maximus, Mother Gothel and the Snuggly Duckling thugs as well as character models for many of the main characters in the film.
Last, but certainly not least, are new additions to our concept art gallery for Disney’s Tangled which features some amazing landscapes of the Kingdom as well as some street level views.
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.

Disney Interactive Studios today announced “Disney Tangled: The Video Game,” a story-based adventure game inspired by the world and characters featured in the upcoming 3D animated Disney film “Tangled,” an action-packed comedy adventure for audiences of all ages. Featuring Rapunzel, a feisty teen with incredibly long magical hair, and Flynn Ryder, a charming rogue, the video game combines humor with an engaging adventure as players embark on a journey to fulfill one of Rapunzel’s lifelong dreams to see the lights she’s admired from her Tower window. “Disney Tangled: The Video Game” will be released for the Wii™ system and Nintendo DS™ family of hand-held systems, as well as Windows/PC this holiday season.
“Disney Tangled: The Video Game is an exciting and fun experience for every member of the family,” said Craig Relyea, Senior Vice President of Global Marketing, Disney Interactive Studios. “It allows fans of all ages to assume the role of the adventurous Rapunzel or the swashbuckling Flynn while experiencing the thrills and humor of the unlikely duo’s exploits.”
Mandy Moore and Zach Levi, who voice the lead characters in the big screen “Tangled,” will lend their talents to the video game as well. Disney Interactive Studios is also working closely with the film’s producers to mirror the magic and fun of the movie, while providing a compelling and unique gameplay experience.
In “Disney Tangled: The Video Game,” players explore the world of the film and engage with its characters as they travel with Rapunzel and Flynn on an adventure-filled escapade jam-packed with challenges. As Rapunzel, players can use her hair to swing, climb, and rejuvenate. As Flynn, they can scale walls, engage in sword play, and use “Flynntuition,” to discover treasure along the way. There is also a creative play feature in Rapunzel’s Tower where players can paint murals and more.
Ensuring a family friendly experience, the Wii features multiple ways to play, including co-op, split screen and up to four players, all in captivating 3D environments. The DS version introduces “Tangled” to gamers on the go with a storybook 2D adventure that includes familiar locations from the movie and a variety of fun and intuitive puzzles and mini games.
“Disney Tangled: The Video Game” will be available holiday 2010. The title is not yet rated by the ESRB.
Disney Consumer Products kicked off its 2010 holiday tour this past week in New York City and brought representatives from every division imaginable to show off all of the new wonderful products you’ll be finding on the shelves this holiday season and we were there to help spread all the joy with you.
Naturally one of the big pushes is for Disney’s Tangled (nee Rapunzel) and Disney Consumer Products has an amazing array of toys and dolls representing the film from Disney Consumer Products, Mattel, JAKKS Pacific and more. Below you’ll find our gallery and additional information on each of the items, but we’d like to take a few moments to highlight some of the things we found (note there may be some minor spoilers).
First up are some of the offerings from Disney Store. As one would likely expect, there is a role playing dress available ($39.50) along with accessories: a braided ‘hair halo’ with about 3′ of extensions ($14.50) and light-up wand ($10.50), shoes ($16.50) and wand ($10.50).
The 11 1/2 inch dolls come with a whopping 17″ of advertised hair (although a couple of inches may not be readily visible) with glittering strands of hair. This is a tribute to the magical powers Rapunzel’s hair has that cause it to glow when it’s brushed (yes, look for a lot of glowing hair Tangled products). Either way, it’s quite impressive (* scissors optional). The doll will be available in a variety of configurations: as a single with paintbrush and Pascal accessories ($14.50; Flynn Rider also available with share and wear comb/tiara), as the Rapunzel Boutique Set which includes three dresses from the film and two mannequin forms ($29.50) and as a set with Flynn Rider with their ‘celebration’ outfits ($29.50).
Another standout for Disney Store is the Rapunzel Toddler Doll ($24.50) which — I dare say — is absolutely darling and sure to be one the biggest hits of the line. We’re told that Glen Keane was so enamoured by toddler Rapunzel that more of her was added into the film than originally planned and we can definitely see why. She’s made from a soft plastic.
It has been noted that the PVC figurine set ($19.50) may actually be giving us our first real look at Madame Gothel / Mother Gothel.
Finally, there’s Rapunzel’s entry into a new line of Disney Princess dolls from Disney Store — the Singing Doll collection which are fully articulated dolls of many of the princesses with all new a cappella recordings from the original voice artists (when possible) created exclusively for the dolls. We’ll delve more into this when we address Disney Princesses directly, so for now we’ll just note that this particular doll features Mandy Moore singing ‘When Will My Life Begin?’
On that same note (brilliant segue), we’ll just touch upon one of the Tangled products from JAKKS Pacific for now and that’s the 18″ tall Rapunzel from the all new Princess & Me collection. She has a distinctive look and we’ll soon learn why when we explore the Disney Princess collections further.
Most of Mattel’s products have already been previewed during the International Toy Fair back in February, so we suggest you take a few moments to check them out here in case you missed it. Of course Mattel has a lot more to offer for the film than what was on display here and one of those items I was looking forward to revisit is Flynn’s horse Maximus. However, since he was unavailable during the holiday tour, I just want to point out that he represents a first for Mattel — his head can actually rock back and forth as he ‘trots,’ adding to realistic play.

Courtesy of the film’s official Facebook page comes this newly offered sketch from Disney’s Tangled which features Flynn Rider (Zachary Levi), Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) and Flynn’s occasionally-faithful steed, Maximus. Apparently Maximus’ allegiance may belong to someone other than his owner judging by the artwork.
Disney’s Tangled is slated to open nationwide on November 24 with a limited release beginning November 12. For all of our Tangled coverage, see this bookmark.
