Rapunzel to be released this winter

The first look to Disney's Rapunzel, to be released November 24, 2010--the birthday of my second cousin and niece. The original version was that a girl got pulled from the modern world and replaced Rapunzel, and Rapunzel got turned into a squirrel. But now, thank the lord, it is going more traditional. It is a unique film as it is the first to be animated with new technology, to make it sound simple--they use special pens to draw and it ends up in the computer, they want the look to be more like watercolor paintings. As you can see above, this gives the film an unique look.

Mandy Moore provides the voice to Rapunzel, Zachary Levi as Flynn Ryder, and Donna Murphy as Mother Gothel. Disney has announced the future addition of Princess Rapunzel from the computer animated film.
