[QUOTE=papa bear;1053983]As was already mentioned, “Tangled”, Disney’s version of Rapunzel, is the new digitally animated film coming from, well, Disney.
From what I’ve read (can’t remember where), Disney’s marketing department had a heck of a time trying to attract young boys to “The Princess and the Frog” because, according to the article, little boys were turned off by the word “Princess” and therefore were not interested in seeing the movie.
So in order to avoid a similar marketing problem, i.e. having a female/feminine name in the movie title, Disney opted to change the name to “Tangled” in lieu of “Rapunzel”. If you’ve noticed, they also feature quite a bit of the male lead character in the trailer, all with the hopes that it will attract the “little boy” demographic (and their parents as well) this time around…[/QUOTE]
OK, IMHO if they want to market to little boys, then they should make more movies for little boys. I love all the princesses and Tangled look hilarious, but with a major remodel coming aimed directly at girls and such a push towards all things princess, I think little boys and older kids are left feeling a bit disappointed. There are so may way they could include more for boys.
Sorry for the thread jack, I am looking forward to this movie and meet the characters. I think we will be heading down for 4 or 5 day in Nov., so I look forward to meeting them. From the pics I have seen, the set look really cute.
