Walt Disney's Tangled (formally Rapunzel) gets a teaser.

This teaser will presumably be included with DVD/Blu Ray release of The Princess and the Frog, which comes out on March 16th. It comes out November 24th, 2011. Hopefully that means it will actually open wide over Thanksgiving weekend, instead of playing in two theaters until a mid-December wide-release, by which point everyone has moved onto the next big movie. Although, if Disney chooses the same release pattern, Tangled will open wide on December 10th, where it will go head to head with The Chronicles of Narnia: The Voyage of the Dawn Trader. If you recall, Chronicles of Narnia used to be a Disney franchise, until they chickened out over the comparatively underwhelming box office ($419 million worldwide on a $225 million budget) of Prince Capsian. Fox then snapped up the rights from Walden Media, setting the stage for a potential showdown between the past and present keepers of Narnia. It seems that I find myself becoming more entertained by the politics than by the movies themselves.
