Took Ro and Ree to see the very first showing of Tangled (the new Disney Rapunzel movie) the morning it came out. And they were thrilled! They kept saying “No one else in the whole world has seen this movie yet, mama!!” I didn’t get into time zones and preview showings and all that jazz with them, just agreed and enjoyed their excitement. Hee!
They sat at the end of the row (quite far from me in my opinion) with their BFF and ate popcorn and some kind of Sour Patch candy stuff that I can’t even smell without wincing.
They loved the movie, thought it was fun and funny and also kind of scary. The kidnapper woman was vile (Disney villains are just loathsome, aren’t they?! but I swear she is the worst one I remember), but they were hanging pretty well with the movie as a whole until the hero got stabbed. Poor sweeties thought he was dead and cried big huge tears (oh my babies, oh my heart!). It was totally my fault too. I forgot to give them our standard pre-movie talk about how the good guy always wins in Disney movies and everything always turns out alright even if it gets scary for a little bit. Oh man! Bad mama. I scurried over to their side of the theater as soon as I heard the distress and hugged them tight and told them to just watch for another minute and then he would be A-OK. And magically he was (phew!).
They talk about the movie all the time and can’t wait until it comes out on DVD. And they’ve added a few Rapunzel-related items to their Christmas lists, which is so cute. The best part was when Ro was scribbling away at the art table today and handed me this:
Rapunzel in her tower. Swoon--the adorableness just slays me!
I’d love to hear what your kids thought of the movie. Did they like it, hate it, think it was too scary, or something else entirely?
