Seven A.M., the usual morning line-up, start on the chores and sweep 'til the floor's all clean, polish and wax, do laundry, and mop and shine up, sweep again, and by then it's like 7:15

And so I read a book, or maybe two or three, I'll add a few new paintings to my gallery, I'll play guitar and knit, and cook and basically

Just wonder when will my life begin?

Tangled's life began like every other Disney movie. In fact, it was quite similar to Enchanted; a live-action/animation hybrid called Rapunzel Unbraided.

Rapunzel Unbraided would become Rapunzel, which would become Tangled, and unlike Rapunzel's 70ft golden locks, it's a bit of a messy story, with lots of change behind the scenes, lots of delays and a lot of talk of "four quadrant appeal".

Tangled's long, arduous production would lead to it becoming the most expensive animated film ever made - a feat shared with The Lion King (2019), and it would also pave the way for Walt Disney Animation Studio's highest grossing animated film since The Lion King (1994)...

I would love to hear your thoughts on Tangled !
