The new Disney movie “Tangled” is a cute, creative take on the traditional Rapunzel story. Having just taken my granddaughter to see it, I highly recommend it. It spins the tale of a teenage girl with healing powers who has spent her life locked up in a tower by Mother Gothel, who, amusingly, uses the healing powers to retain her youthful appearance. Rapunzel’s sheltered world takes a hit when she makes a deal with a bandit in hopes of finding the mysterious lights that’s she sees on her birthday. Though the story differs from the original, which I believe I enjoyed reading when I was a child, these characters are both familiar and fresh, with new ones added to the old. The movie has a modern twist, and the 3D style gives the animation true life. Tangled is a great family movie, entertaining and lovable for children, teens and adults alike. Why not take your whole family out for a post-Thanksgiving outing?
