New Tangled Trailer

Well, Disney just released the new trailer for the next animated blockbuster, Tangled, and as always, it's leaving people scratching their heads.

A lot of Disney fans think Disney is messing up the marketing on this one.  See, last year, Disney gave us The Princess and the Frog, and even though it was beloved by critics and a hit at the box office, it didn't meet Disney's financial expectations.  The experts say it's because the marketing for The Princess and the Frog focused too much on the princess and the romance and the fairy tale, and thus, boys found it icky.

So, the knee-jerk reaction was the marketing for Disney's next film, their animated take on Rapunzel.  They changed the name to Tangled, and now they're focusing on the prince, his exploits, and trying to make it look more like an action movie...and thus, boys won't find it icky, they'll drag their parents to it, and Disney will make more money. 

Anywho, here's the trailer.  Mandy Moore voices Rapunzel and Zackary Levi voices the prince, Flynn.  It hits theatres November 24.
