DVD Review: Tangled

Flynn, Rapunzel and Pascal the chameleon in a still from Disney's Tangled

Release date

It's out now!

The plot

Flynn and Rapunzel in a still from Disney's Tangled

EXCLUSIVE: Check out one of the bonus songs, I See The Light

Tangled marks Disney's 50th anniversary and re-tells the classic fairytale Rapunzel, with added twists, turns… and songs!

Rapunzel is a princess who is born with magical hair. But she's kidnapped at birth and raised by a witch - Gothel - who uses Rapunzel's magical hair to stop her from getting old.

Rapunzel in a still from Disney's Tangled

Gothel keeps Rapunzel locked away in a tall tower, so she has no idea that she's actually the kingdom's long lost princess.

When a thief (Flynn Rider) stumbles into Rapunzel's tower looking for a place to hide, she tricks him into helping her escape and together they set out on a great adventure.

Best bits

This film is really funny and heart-warming, with all the classic Disney ingredients mixed in.

Our favourite bits are the scenes with Rapunzel's cute and cheeky chameleon sidekick, Pascal. He's fabulous!

Flynn, Rapunzel and Maximus the horse in a still from Disney's Tangled

Maximus the horse is another big highlight. Maximus is part of the king's royal guard and works very hard to track down and arrest Flynn. The scene with the stand-off between Flynn and Maximus is brilliant.

DVD Extras

The DVD offers two alternative story book openings for the film and a countdown of each of Disney's 50 animated feature films, which are pretty cool.

But the Blue-ray version also includes three deleted scenes and two extended songs.

Any weak bits?

Mother Gothel doesn't look this happy when Rapunzel leaves!

The biggest weak point of the DVD is that it doesn't include the deleted scenes and extended songs that you get with the Blue-ray version.

As for the film... the only thing we'd say is watch out for Mother Gothel if you scare easily. She can be pretty creepy at times!

Hit or miss?

A definite hit. Although the DVD extras are disappointing, the film more than makes up for it.
