VOICES OF Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi
WRITTEN BY Dan Fogelman
DIRECTED BY Nathan Greno and Byron Howard
Yes, this CG-animated, 3-D film is Disney’s take on the classic fairy tale of Rapunzel, about a literally headstrong girl (Mandy Moore) trapped in a tall tower and blessed with a prodigious mane. And yes, both Rapunzel and dashing thief Flynn Rider (Chuck‘s Zachary Levi), who scales her tower, break into song. But after the female-targeted The Princess and the Frog failed to make box office magic last year, the studio changed the title from Rapunzel to Tangled — and the action-packed trailer focuses almost entirely on Rider. Why? ”This movie is about Rapunzel and Flynn Rider,” says co-director Nathan Greno. Fair enough.
