Disney’s brilliance never ceases to amaze me.
When The Lion King came out in 3D in the fall, I debated whether to take my girls, considering we have the video already in the cupboard. I love the theatre so much that we went ahead, and the big screen and 3D magic really did add to the experience. (But let’s face it, movies are expensive to begin with, let alone adding on the 3D cost.)
I’ve been excited about Beauty and the Beast being rereleased to theatres in 3D this Friday, and since it’s one of my all-time favourite Disney movies (Belle is the absolute best princess, in my opinion) I had already planned on taking my daughters. I know there are many others out there, however, who have the same “Is 3D worth it when we own the DVD (or in my case, VHS)?” question in their minds.
To add a little incentive, When BEAUTY AND THE BEAST in Disney Digital 3D hits theatres on January 13th, moviegoers will also get their first look at TANGLED EVER AFTER, a new animated short film from TANGLED directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard. The new short spotlights the royal wedding of Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) and Flynn Rider – a.k.a Eugene (Zachary Levi).
Greno and Howard bring back some of Disney’s most beloved characters when TANGLED EVER AFTER picks up where TANGLED left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?
Frannie and Maggie loved Tangled, and I know this will be a definite bonus for them.
