'Tangled' World Premiere in Hollywood

I cobbled together some media footage from last weekend's premiere of Tangled at the El Capitan Theatre in Hollywood. This is somewhat of an experiment as I don't do a lot of video editing, but I liked the results and hope you do too. My apologies in advance for the murky voice over. I'm working on a microphone upgrade as we speak.

I was skeptical at first of Tangled, but I have to admit a few days prior to its U.S. release that it's growing on me. I was leery of Disney purposely distancing itself from The Princess and the Frog by changing the title to Tangled from Rapunzel and I didn't feel comfortable at all with the early trailers focusing mostly on Flynn Ryder. Disney seemed seriously afraid of making another "princess" flick. As more movie material has been released, however, I'm relieved to see how Tangled could work not just as a fairy tale, but as an action adventure with a sense of humor. The animation looks rich and the characters benefit from a talented voice cast. The early buzz is excellent with Tangled scoring a 100% rating from a handful of critics already on Rotten Tomatoes. I'm looking forward to seeing it this week.
