Rapunzel has always been one of my favorite fairy tales. A woman with beautiful and awesomely long hair, who can heal with her tears–what’s not to love?
I was excited a few years ago when I heard that Disney was going to make a Rapunzel movie. But when I finally saw the trailers for it…I was very underwhelmed. I had no desire to see it. The trailers made the movie seem very silly. I wasn’t interested in seeing a movie with a girl with hair that seems to have a mind of its own (I have enough problems with my OWN thank you very much). Disappointed, I didn’t plan on seeing the movie when I came out.
But then my friends started watching it. And raving about it. All of them. And I thought, well…maybe I should see it.
I was totally blown away with how awesome it was. The trailers…they sucked. Big time. But the movie was so much better than I had dared to hope. The visuals in the movie took my breath away. And the story was amazing. The characters very well written.
I immediately went home and started looking up the concept art from the movie. There is some really beautiful art from this movie. I particularly fell in love with the art of Claire Keane, who designed the look of Rapunzel.
