Walt Disney Pictures has released the first trailer and some cool info regarding their upcoming CG-animation Tangled.
Walt Disney Pictures presents Tangled, one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told. When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. In theaters this holiday season in Disney Digital 3D, Tangled is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
· Tangled marks Walt Disney Pictures’ 50th full-length animated feature.
· Byron Howard directed Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Bolt, the 2008 animated comedy adventure that grossed more than $300 million worldwide and earned two Golden Globe® nominations (Best Animated Film and Best Original Song), and an Oscar® nomination for Best Animated Feature. Nathan Greno, a 14-year Disney animation veteran, served as head of story on Bolt, and has animation and/or story credits on such other animated features as Mulan, Brother Bear, and Meet the Robinsons.
· Tangled features new songs and a score by eight-time Oscar®-winning composer/songwriter Alan Menken The Little Mermaid, Beauty and the Beast, Aladdin, Pocahontas, and, most recently, Enchanted. Lyrics are by Glenn Slater, a 2008 Tony® and Grammy® nominee for his work on The Little Mermaid.
