I keep telling myself I'm not going to spoil myself by clicking on concept art links for Tangled.

And yet, I do it anyway.

And now I'm even more excited for this movie. Just as excited as I was for Toy Story 3.

I can deal with the fact that it's CG, and I've accepted it at this point. I think the reason everyone keeps raging about it is because it's CG and not traditionally hand-drawn. It's going to have a different look and a different feel to it than all of the other fairy tales Disney animation has tackled. But you know what? Sometimes you have to take that risk. Would you really want to see a movie that was exactly the same as Beauty and the Beast or The Little Mermaid or Sleeping Beauty, and watch it and think, "Oh, this is the same thing as (insert Disney fairy tale movie here)!"? No!

I can deal with the fact that it doesn't follow the traditional Brothers' Grimm telling of the story of Rapunzel. Let's not forget--story development often has to take their own creative liberties just to make a story work for the big screen. All of the fairy tales they've done are drastically different from the original tellings.

I can even deal with the stupid re-branding of the title. I'll just grit my teeth and deal with that. They want to appeal to boys? Fine. It's a stupid move, but I'll deal with it.

But there are 107 days left until this movie comes out, and I. CAN'T. WAIT.

*later edited* Don't click if you don't want to be spoiled, but I'll just say this. Disney has not opened a movie like this since Sleeping Beauty. The Little Mermaid didn't get this, The Princess and the Frog didn't get this, and the closest we got with Beauty and the Beast was stained glass windows. I'm REALLY excited now.
