Tangled Before Ever After | Film Review

It is no secret that Tangled is one of my all time favourite Disney films, with Rapunzel being my favourite Princess and Pascal being my favourite sidekick. I am not sure what took me so long to get round to watching this film but I loved every second of it and I couldn't recommend it enough.

I am sure that we can all remember the short, seven minute film, Tangled Ever After being released in 2012 where we were able to watch Rapunzel and Flynn Rider's (also known as Eugene) wedding (as well as everything that went wrong) and laughed over the mischief that Pascal and Maximus got up to in regards to the wedding rings but what a lot of people aren't aware of is that in 2017, prior to the release of Tangled: The Series, Disney Channel released an hour long exclusive film called Tangled Before Ever After which enables us to learn about everything that happened after Rapunzel was rescued and reunited with her parents. 

I quickly learnt that this film was completely different to Tangled and one of the key things that changed was that in this film, Disney had taken the animations back to their original style which takes a while to adjust to, but I love just as much. There were a lot of new character within this film including Cassandra who is both a friend to Rapunzel as well as her handmaiden.

The plot of this film was so different to what we saw in the original and at the beginning of the film, Rapunzel had her short, brown hair before sneaking out of the castle with Cassandra, against her fathers rules and coming across some black rocks which made her 70 feet of hair, magically grow back but even stronger than before. This film focuses on Rapunzel trying to fit into her new life in the kingdom of Corona as a Princess but of course, she has a different idea of what sort of Princess she wants to be as an oppose to her parents and everyone around her. One thing that hasn't changed is the comedy within this film, I lost count of the amount of times I burst out laughing and Pascal, really begins to come out of his shell.

Of course, it wouldn't be a Disney film without new songs and this film features both Life After Happily Every After and Wind in My Hair and I love them both so much, especially Wind in My Hair as it is so fitting to Rapunzel and her personality. Even if you don't watch the film, give the songs a listen because they are honestly incredible.

I honestly couldn't recommend watching this film enough, especially if you're wanting to watch Tangled: The Series as it fills in the missing time between Tangled and Tangled: The Series. I am so excited to start the series although, I am not sure how it is going to top both Tangled and Tangled Before Ever After.
