When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) is taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a feisty teen with 70 feet of golden hair who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, the unlikely duo sets off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade filled with adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
Walt Disney Pictures presents “Tangled,” one of the most hilarious, hair-raising tales ever told. When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of Zachary Levi) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of Mandy Moore), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who’s looking for her ticket out of the tower where she’s been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs. In theaters this holiday season in Disney Digital 3D™, “Tangled” is a story of adventure, heart, humor and hair—lots of hair.
Two wildly different movies will be getting stage musical adaptations in the near future, with a Broadway version of the 1993 comedy classic Groundhog Day being developed, while Disney Parks is making a Tangled musical for their Disney Cruise Lines. The Groundhog Day musical is being developed by composer-lyricist Tim Minchin, director Matthew Warchus, choreographer Peter Darling and set and costume designer Rob Howell, the team behind the current Broadway adaptation of the 1996 movie Matilda. They will all collaborate on the play's book with Danny Rubin, who came up with the original Groundhog Day story and co-wrote the screenplay with director Harold Ramis.
Scott Rudin will produce the play with Andre Ptaszysnki's Whistle Pig Productions and Columbia Stage Live. The original movie centered on a weatherman (Bill Murray) who is assigned to cover the Groundhog Day ceremony in Punxsutawney, Pennsylvania, where he gets caught in a time loop and is forced to re-live the same day over and over again. Andie MacDowell, Chris Elliott, Stephen Tobolowsky, Brian Doyle-Murray and Marita Geraghty co-starred in the comedy classic.Read More
