New Image from Disney’s RAPUNZEL

By this time next year, you’ll be seeing Disney’s take on the old German fairy tale Rapunzel in theaters, but for now you can analyze this new image from the film. Walt Disney Animation studios promises that with Rapunzel, “you will be transported to a world complete with iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses”. Like so many animated features these days, Rapunzel has a stellar voice cast including Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Matthew Gray Gubler, David Schwimmer, John Goodman, David Cross, Jason Alexander, and Carol Burnett.  Hit the jump for more:

I don’t speak French, but there are enough cognates that I think I get the gist of what they are saying over Disney/Pixar’s French site [via /Film] in their description of the still. The image was scanned from the magazine Studio CinéLive, and features Rapunzel herself (Moore) and “le bandit” Flynn Ryder (Levi). The image is actually remarkably similar to a Rapunzel still we posted in July, except that a completely different character is caught in Rapunzel’s crosshairs. So it could be that tying people up is one of many hair-based running sight gags throughout the film. I’d like to note that Rapunzel’s neverending hair appears to be well-designed (i.e. nice texture, realistic interaction with surroundings). This is difficult in CG films, but probably crucial when telling such a hair-centric story.  They’re also basing the CG on French Rococo artist Jean-Honore Fragonard’s painting “The Swing” so Rapunzel will probably look very different than any CG-animated movie we’ve seen.

Look for Rapunzel to hit theaters on November 24, 2010

    Pixar is producing some awesome movies. I am sure this one will be a GREAT watch as well. I agree … it seems like CG is getting better with each movie. I am looking forward to seeing this on the big screen.

    So this is a Disney Pixar movie?

    It doesn’t look very Pixarish.

    Yes, Disney stated that Pixar will lead their 3D world development including Rapunzel.

    It’s not Pixar. Disney is doing their own CGI films as well. They are going to stagger their CG and 2D releases. The next Pixar films are Toy Story 3, Cars 2, The Bear and the Bow and Newt, in that order.

    Looks good aesthetically, but from the concept art I was expecting something more visually shocking. Maybe I just need to see this in action to see how the look really stands apart from, say, Bolt.
