It's a contractual holiday, I've been catching up on my recreational sleeping, so here's some new Disney art (cribbed from other corners of the internets) of the oncoming CGI feature formerly known as Rapunzel.
I've had people tell me (as Floyd Norman has mentioned here in comments) that the Tangled preview hasn't gotten huge responses from theatre audiences.
Well, the trailer amused me (though I cringed at Rapunzel's line: "Best. Day. Ever!" It's beyond cliche and why the hell do we need it?)
I think the picture will perform well, despite the long development time and despite some of the brickbats that have been chucked at it. For my money, it combines the best of CG with the best of early nineties Diseny hand-drawn features. (My caveat: I haven't a clue how the story plays ... or even exactly what the story is.)
Insiders tell me the story is good; insiders tell me the story is "so-so." But I don't think insiders are necessarily the best judges. They're too damn close to the product to see the thing objectively, and they often change their opinions over time.
