The animated universe has been dominated by Disney for many years. This is the company that produced the original princess films. Disney realized that these types of films aren't in as high of demand and they used to be. Tangled was announced to be the final princess film released by Disney for the time being. I'm not generally into animated films, but that all changes when it's one of Disney's major films.

The magically long-haired Repunzel has spent her entire life in a tower, but decides to discover the world for the first time with a runaway thief that stumbled upon her. The plot is very simple and sounds similar to other princess films. Despite the clichéd tacky moments guaranteed for a film in this genre, the screenplay is decent. It's not extraordinary, but it gets the job done. Each plot twist and turn is predictable, but it's an enjoyable ride. There are some scenes with good humor that's sure to amuse children and adults alike.

Almost all of the recent animated films have big names behind it. For Tangled, the characters are voiced by Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Donna Murphy, Ron Perlman, among others. Each of the voice actors are good here. Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi do well with the musical numbers together. They bring the characters to life by being perfect for the roles.

Even though Tangled took on the old princess formula, it uses modern animation. Disney continues to do phenomenal work on the visuals. The animation is highly detailed and is executed to perfection. Disney remains aware of the technological changes and always stays on the top of having the best animation in the industry. Those with an HD TV will see the fantastic work demonstrated by Disney here.

Tangled isn't the strongest Disney film to be released. It's cliché and has been done to death, but that doesn't take away from the entertainment value. It's very worthy of being an addition to the Disney film list. The voice actors do a fine job of bringing this film to the screen. Those who enjoy Disney films shouldn't hesitate on checking this out. The studio stated that this will be the final princess film for a while. I'm not into animated films which goes to prove that this appeals to all audiences. Tangled is a cute movie that will be enjoyed by audiences of all ages.
