Ooh, foreshadowing!

Yes... Yes the narration could've been better.

Some critics made a lot of noise over a character telling Rapunzel she's "Gettin' kinda chubby".

You get a no-prize if you guessed that line is said in the film by the antagonist.

O_O And on the note, I forgot what a horrible bully Mother Goethel was!

She's the worst kind too. The kind who tears you down and then apologizes for it, then does it all over again.

Goethel and Lady Tremain should hang out and swap tips on psychologically abusing their stepdaughters.

Breaking news flash: CGI-animated Disney Princess has big giant eyeballs!

Update: Oh wait, so do most Disney Princesses.

Update: Oh wait, so do most Disney characters, including males.

Hey remember how this sequence of events went completely differently in the teaser trailers?

The whole sequence where Rapunzel explores outside her tower for the first time is awesomesauce.

Some critics claimed Rapunzel was "too ditzy". To which I say, she has been an involuntary shut-in since she was a baby. Give the poor girl a break!

(Too enthralled by the pretty to comment...)

Oh man, the Snuggly Duckling scene...

Rapunzel's hometown is every World Showcase pavilion at once. Yes, even that one. And that one.

Love that they have this scene here. There's a lifetime of heartbreak in this little scene.

And oh my goodness, the lanterns...

O_O Welp, add Mother Goethel to the list of Truly Heinous Disney Villain Deaths...

Now I'm sorry, but this whole finale is awesome and hilarious.

Awwwww!

Yes! Best!

Okay, hang on to your kilts, everyone - "Brave" is next...

Makes me wonder if anyone from Disney has ever taught a college course called "Abusive Relationships 101"?

"Hey remember how this sequence of events went completely differently in the teaser trailers?"

What I'm wondering is how Flynn survived so many frying pan shots to the head?
