Tangled: Before Ever After
My favorite thing about Tangled: Before Ever After is how sensitive it is to Rapunzel and Eugene’s different childhoods. They both suffered a lot of neglect and abuse but in completely different ways. The conflict of the DCOM wasn’t just external, but internal conflict. What Eugene and Rapunzel both want is so clearly rooted in what they didn’t have as children. For one, security and companionship. For the other, freedom and agency.
It was so much fun to watch because it really understood and appreciated the characters and took care to develop them well.
With Alan Menken and Claire Keane on board like how could it be bad.
P.S. Dat Levi/Moore harmony tho gimme more.
