You can't really buy a \"wait until after you're big, with a house and job and money\" line for a movie. But that's how Tangled 2 moves past the \"been there, done that\" issue that followed the first movie's release. Sure, it's a romanticized version of a story mothers and fathers have already told their kids, but it makes for an adorable and tame sequel that is sure to appeal to kids.
Rapunzel also introduces us to her two male favorites, Prince Charming and her princely protector, Flynn. They're less played out than they were in the Disney theme parks, both have slightly more likable sides. Dizzy Gillespie's mellifluous jazz numbers help balance out the quaintly old-fashioned tale, but the inclusion of main character Rapunzel's stalker from the prologue, Gothel, lessens the movie's appeal. Rapunzel's story would be a great success regardless of all this (and she is a better character than her aunt-turned-stalker), but it's worth noting that this Tangled sequel is the only foray Disney has made into mashing up film and TV in order to make a stronger picture. 7211a4ac4a
