Q & A with the Casts of RAPUNZEL: A TANGLED TALE (In Disney Digital 3D™)

Went for the Premiere Screening of Rapunzel: A Tangled Tale on Wednesday night @ Cathay Cineplex e@Curve, Damansara, Kuala Lumpur
Rapunzel was great! Finally Disney is back with its magical touch! Great songs, beautiful princess, handsome hero, extremely cute pet, hilariously funny smart horse and of course.. a happy ending.
 
Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi (the voice behind Rapunzel and Flynn Rider)

It is an action-packed, swashbuckling, animated musical comedy about the girl behind 70 feet of magical, golden hair.  A princess stolen from her parents’ castle as a baby, Rapunzel (voice of MANDY MOORE) is locked in a hidden tower longing for adventure.  Now an imaginative and determined teenager, she takes off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade with the help of a dashing bandit (voice of ZACHARY LEVI).  With the secret of her royal heritage hanging in the balance and her captor in pursuit, Rapunzel and her cohort find adventure, heart, humor, and hair… lots of hair!
I was glad I went for the Premiere sans make-up (note: without MASCARA) otherwise I’ll be leaving the cinema looking like a ghost with black streaks under my eyes! Rapunzel was an extremely touching movie that made my eyes moist throughout more than half of the show! Even Darling agreed it touched his heart :D Awww…..
The best part was – ETHAN WATCHED THE ENTIRE SHOW WITHOUT BLINKING! – Ok, I may have exaggerated there a little :P I won’t know if he blinked or not as we were all wearing that super awesome space-age looking 3D glasses! 
The extremely cute and lovable Pascal the chameleon :D 

Ethan loves the show especially the chameleon Pascal. Bring your kids to catch Rapunzel, you won’t regret it! 
 Darling loves the horse Maximus best! My gawd, Maximus has the BEST expressions I have ever seen!
There is this part where the King and Queen released the floating lights, followed by everyone else… I just sobs silly there.. extremely touching!

OK~lah, I don’t want to be a spoiler here and spill out everything. You just have got to watch it this time, in 3D ok? 

Wait, before you leave, we managed to get some insights from Rapunzel and Flynn Rider! Tee hee hee.. Here goes:

Q & A with Rapunzel
Q: Describe your relationship with Mother Gothel. Is this a typical mother-daughter relationship, filled with ups and downs?
A: There are certainly a lot of ups and downs—though it usually involves me letting down my hair, and Mother grabbing hold for a ride up into our tower. Is that typical? Mother loves me to death—she says so all the time. She goes to great lengths to protect me… though there are days I wish she wouldn’t.

Q: Your first encounter with Flynn Rider wasn’t exactly ideal. What was going through your mind?
A: Honestly? I was searching the tower for something good to strike him with. I was shocked at first—I mean, there was a person right there in our tower. And a little afraid… there was a PERSON in our tower! But once I knocked him out and dragged him to the closet—I felt…
…strong.
When it comes to intruders—and knocking them out—I highly recommend the frying pan. Very effective.
Q: What are your hobbies?
A: Hmmmm… hobbies. I lead a pretty quiet life, tower-bound and all. Is cleaning a hobby? [SMILES] I do like to read… and play guitar… and knit. I do some cooking and baking and ballet dancing. I like puzzles and pottery and candle-making. And painting. I love to paint. The tower is covered with my paintings—all of them, in some way, reflect my dreams, my fantasies. I do love daydreaming. I like to sit by the window with Pascal— my chameleon and my confidant—and fantasize about someday seeing the floating lights.
 
Q: So what is it about these lights? What makes them so special?
A: That’s what I want to find out! Every year on my birthday—MY birthday—I see hundreds of floating lights. I look forward to those lights. It’s as if each one is a flickering symbol of life… or maybe love… or hope. Yes, it’s definitely hope.
From a distance, they’re beautiful—breathtaking. Can you imagine what it would be like to see the lights in person? [SIGHS] I can.
 
Q: Why would a girl like you pick Flynn Rider to be her guide?
A: He’s worldly, right? Of course everyone seems worldly to me. I knew when I met him that he was right for the job because he was… well… there. I didn’t exactly have a lot of options. And with criteria that included having spent time—any time—OUTSIDE my tower, it was a pretty good bet that he’d qualify.
Besides, I think the whole swashbuckling bandit thing is a big act.
 
Q: Seventy feet of magical hair—burden or blessing?
A: Both.
I mean… it’s a LOT of hair. Brushing it is quite a chore… and hoisting Mother into this tower day in and day out isn’t easy. The hardest part by far though is the hiding. Mother says there are lots of people who’d like to get their hands on my magical hair. So it gets lonely up here.
But all in all, I really do think my hair is a blessing. Mother tells me all the time how special I am because of it. And it really comes in handy—I can hang from the rafters while I paint, and if a bandit should invade my tower, 70 feet of magical hair is an ideal tool for tying him up while I decide what to do next.
How many girls can say that?

Q & A with Flynn Rider
Q: You’ve been described as a “charming” bandit. Are you?
A: Am I charming? [SMILES] Well, you be the judge. [SMILES AGAIN, THIS TIME WITH MEANING] Scratch that. I don’t need another judge—plen-ty of those to contend with already, thank you very much. So… I’m sorry—you want to know if I’m charming. Well, it’s like this. I’m a good guy at heart, you know? I may have borrowed a thing or two from people who have a thousand things or two… thousand. But I mean no harm, really. And if a warm smile or a kind word to them or those they hire to hunt me down makes their day a bit brighter—then so be it: I’m charming.
 
Q: What attracted you to Rapunzel?
A: I’d like to say it was her long golden hair, her big green eyes, her amazing voice, and a—shall we say—spirited personality that could keep even the most charming bandit on his toes. But the truth is… well… it was her tower. Tall. Nearly impossible to break in to… the PERFECT hiding place.
Hey, you wanted the truth. I mean, she is beautiful and all of those things. She’s also good with a frying pan—but not in the way you think. [RUBS HEAD]
 
Q: Do you have a dream?
A: Well… yeah, I have a dream. Everybody has a dream.
Oh—you want to know what it is? [LAUGHS] Dreams are tricky things. People tend to want
the one thing they can’t have. So for me, I’ve always wanted… well, what’s the nice way to say it? Freedom. Independence. A carefree life. And for a kid who never had those things—not in the way I wanted anyway—the only way I knew how to get them was with money. Piles of it.
 
Q: Why would a girl like Rapunzel pick you to be her guide?
A: Why wouldn’t she? [SMILES]
Seriously… why wouldn’t she? I’m an explorer… of sorts. I’ve been around. I know all the best places—caves, castles, pubs. Plus, I’m the first guy to show up in her tower who she could trust. Well, I’m the first guy to show up in her tower, anyway.
 
Q: You’ve teamed up in the past with the Stabbington Brothers, but yet, they don’t seem to be your biggest fans. What gives?
A: Never trust a guy who wears an eye patch… or his brother. These guys grow a few biceps and suddenly they’re in charge, you know? Ah, let’s face it: they’re thieves, I’m a thief—it’s not exactly a relationship built on trust. In the real world, it’s survival of the fittest—or in this case—survival of the clever…est… best looking? Hey, whatever works.
 
Q. What’s up with your horse Maximus?
A. Whoa, whoa, whoa. That fleabag is NOT my horse. MY horse wouldn’t stalk me all day and all night for no good reason. MY horse wouldn’t make it his life’s mission to bring a guy like me to justice. MY horse wouldn’t follow me to the most precarious of circumstances—just to get his teeth on my satchel.
Come to think of it—Max and I have a lot in common. But he’s still a fleabag.

There, now that you know EVERYTHING you need to know, what are you waiting for? Go.. remember.. 3D ok?
