TheWrap.com: Disney's 'Tangled' Rocks Girl Power
Please check out my latest Hollyblog on TheWrap.com: "Disney Gets 'Tangled' Up in Girl Power."
CC has been so excited to see Disney's latest (and 50th) animated movie, "Tangled," an updated version of the fairytale "Rapunzel," and I'm happy that this new version sports a femme lead that's self-sufficient and resourceful -- rather than the usual damsel in distress.
As you'll read in the post, CC's found it really difficult to find books on her bookshelf that have girls as the main characters -- which has forced some unexpected gender modifications for existing boys. (Sorry, Piglet.)
Check it out, and please let me know what you think. And, as always, feel free to leave a comment on the post. There are already a few interesting ones, which point out that, ironically, Disney has been working hard to market "Tangled" to little boys.
