...Can I say ANYTHING down here that wouldn't feel like I was explaining the joke? Anything? I could talk about something completely different. That wouldn't be explaining the joke.
Okay... I know! Did you know that--wait, I plan to use that in the next storyline comic commentary. Um... hm.
OH! Did you guys hear about that Disney movie they're making called Tangled
? Yeah, it's inspired by Rapunzel
and was originally going to be called that, but they changed the name in an attempt to appeal to a wider demographic based on the theory that The Princess And The Frog
underperformed due to having a girly title (in spite of doing well, it apparently didn't do as well as expected).
Given that they're concerned about the young male market, I guess that makes sense, but I actually like "Tangled" over "Rapunzel". It's not like the movie will be a faithful retelling of the original. "Tangled" gives it a fractured fairy tales
sort of feel that I find appropriate and fun. Knowing why they changed it sort of diminishes that, but on it's own, Tangled
sounds more fun than Rapunzel.
