Disney’s ‘Tangled’ releases another meaningless trailer
By Scott Mendelson
HollywoodNews.com: Rapunzel is apparently a helpless and useless supporting character in her own movie. She gets maybe three lines of dialogue in the 150 second trailer, with the bulk of screentime going to her dashing and adventurous suitor. At least Rapunzel is uber-pretty, because that’s all girls are good for in the post-“Princess and the Frog” Disney regime, right?
I concede that this may not be the movie as it is, but rather what they are selling in a panic over the alleged under-performance of “The Princess and the Frog” (Oh no! Only $267 million worldwide and the hundreds of millions over the next decade in Princess Tiana merchandise!). But the sour aftertaste that this marketing campaign has left in its wake will be tough to shake.
