Tangled (film) A princess stolen from her parents’ castle as a baby, Rapunzel is locked away for years in a hidden tower. When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit, Flynn Rider, hides out in her tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel, now a beautiful and feisty teen with 70 feet of magical golden hair. Flynn’s curious captor, who is looking for a way out of the tower, strikes a deal with the handsome thief, and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with a super-cop horse named Maximus, an over-protective chameleon named Pascal, and a gruff gang of pub thugs. With the secret of her royal heritage hanging in the balance and her captor in pursuit, Rapunzel and her cohort find adventure, heart, and humor. Released on November 24, 2010.
