hollybrooke: (Rapunzel fixes Flynn with a withering st)
This will end up being a special feature on the Tangled Blu-Ray/DVD, but it needs to be shared. I knew I had read about it opening in the traditional "storybook" format and I was all psyched up for it, considering Disney animation hasn't done a "storybook" opening since The Sword in the Stone.

Dang, I wish they had stuck with this. If there was one thing I didn't like about the movie, I would go with the fact that they had Flynn narrating the opening. I can overlook it, but still...

32 more days till the DVD release!

....I can't quit laughing. Flynn's face. Priceless.

43 freaking days left till it comes out on DVD!!
hollybrooke: (Frying Pan)
Your daily Tangled countdown fix, of course.

Flynn gets Rapunzel out of the tower....and they go to a Kings' game?

You think they had to PAY for all of those seats? (No. Flynn STOLE them!)

As soon as they mentioned "White Bronco," I about lost it laughing. (For those of you too young to remember, a throwback to when OJ Simpson was being chased down by the cops.)

The soundtrack came out yesterday. I have yet to purchase it, but here's "When Will My Life Begin" in its entirety. THANK YOU, YOUTUBE!!!

I think I've listened to it, like, five times this morning. I like it! It's not like a lot of the other more "classic" songs, but like I said...if you want something to sound like Beauty and the Beast or Cinderella, go put in those DVDs. (The opening of this song almost reminds me of "Pinball Wizard" from Tommy, actually.) And I like how they want to give Rapunzel's musical cues a guitar-sound. I think I read in D23 earlier this year Mandy Moore saying that when she first heard this song, she said it kind of reminded her of "Chelsea Morning" by Joni Mitchell. I don't know, what do you think?

Here's your daily Tangled countdown fix for Tuesday!

BEST viral video I've seen for this movie! But don't you think healing cut wounds with your hair is....I dunno....not very hygenic?

Here's some stuff for ya!

Mandy Moore is TALL, man. (That's from the premiere. I like Mandy's dress, but I'm not thrilled about her hair. Looks like no effort went into that at all.)

Early sketches of Rapunzel and Flynn, who looks as huge as a bear (*hee hee*), by Glen Keane.

Ever seen You Don't Mess With the Zohan? "I want to make the hair silky smoooooth!" (And wow, how creepy-looking does this look?)

First of all....how on Earth can you actually physically DO that with hair without risking it getting all kinds of split ends and breaking? And wouldn't that HURT your poor scalp?! (I have to keep telling myself that "it's MAGICAL hair.")
Second of all....wow, Mother Gothel's kind of a snippy, condescending bitch.

OMG, I'm just as excited as you are, Rapunzel! It's like this gif never ends!


On a related note, my hair is bra-strap-length at this point. It's not like I've been actively trying to grow it out; it just grows super-fast. Hell, I just got two inches trimmed a few months ago, and now it looks like four inches have grown back.
hollybrooke: (Too much hair!)

It's the Japanese poster for Tangled. (Without text, I guess.) It's pretty, but how in the world would Maximus be able to ride in the boat and have it stay afloat?

hollybrooke: (And yet ANOTHER Rapunzel icon)
Yeah, it's another Tangled countdown bonus. I couldn't pass THIS one up.

OMG, the detail on the eyes!!!

Aw crap, I can't wait till tomorrow to post this as well! ANOTHER CLIP FROM THE MOVIE!!! *bouncebouncebouncebounce*

This is "Something That I Want" by Grace Potter, the ending song to the movie, in its entirety.

Like they mentioned on [livejournal.com profile] d_princesses, I'm anxious to see what Disney will do for the ending credits, if it'll be illustrated like they did with Enchanted and The Princess and the Frog.

This is not a song that Rapunzel sings in the film, and this is not a pop version of anything that is sung in the film (like they did with "Beauty and the Beast" and "A Whole New World"). And I've heard complaints that what we've heard of the soundtrack doesn't sound like "classic Disney" at all. Well....not to get pissy or anything, but in the songwriters' defense, this is not a classic. Yet. And you can't recreate the magic that Howard Ashman and Alan Menkin had with The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast. I think it's cool that this is the direction the animated movies are starting to take, because let's be honest, they were starting to get kind of formulaic song-wise after Aladdin. I like that the ending song is upbeat and pop-ish, and not a romantic, mainstream version of "I See the Light."

The point I'm trying to make is, quit contrasting and comparing. This is a new direction that Disney animation and songwriting is going. If you expect it to be like Beauty and the Beast or The Little Mermaid or Sleeping Beauty, then go pop that in your DVD player.

hollybrooke: (And yet ANOTHER Rapunzel icon)
Yeah, it's your daily Tangled countdown fix. (I'M NOT OBSESSED! REALLY, I'M NOT!)

There you see her
Look at her you know you do
Possible she want you, too
There is one way to ask her
It don't take a word, not a single word
Go on and kiss the girl

...'Kay, yeah, I'm obsessed, LOL. And now I've got my mom excited about seeing this, too! I'm probably going to take her and Gramma Julie on opening day. :)

Fifteen days left!!
hollybrooke: (Default)
27, to be exact!

If anyone can make me an animated gif of Rapunzel zooming down the stairs like that, I'll love you long time. :D
