Disney’s Tangled had a huge jump in their marketing not to long ago, and as expected it was the first of many more to come. A few wanted/found videos uploaded to YouTube aren’t the only things Tangled is giving us, though. Learn about Tangled sweepstakes, wanted ads, and more after the jump.
After the Double Rainbow parody they did, Disney came out with 2 trailers right afterward for the Rapunzel reimagining. Since this a heavily character-based movie, it’s only appropriate to dedicate a short video for each one, hosted at Disney’s YouTube channel. They’re categorized as “Tangled – wanted:” or “Tangled – found:” with typewriter like- style titles all throughout, showing clips focusing on that character. Every once in a while they mix it up a little. My personal favorite is Pascal’s, being a “Lost:” ad. That tiny lizard has such a soothing voice.
On to the sweepstakes! The theme of Tangled is about following and living your dream. Flynn’s dream apparently stinks, so what’s yours? Disney wants to know, and sharing your dream could win you several prizes like a trip to Disney, movie premires, 1,000 dollars, and more! Choose from a variety of lanterns, type in your first name, state, and write out your dream in less than 140 characters. Don’t have just one dream? No problem, you can do this 10 times a day. If you want to see mine, search the name “Kristopher.”
If that wasn’t enough, over at Tangled’s main page is a 60 second interview with Zachary Levi (Flynn) and Mandy Moore (Rapunzel). The questions are not surprisingly one sided though. Finally, check out the Twitter interview with Mandy Moore from yesterday.
That’s it for now, but more wanted/found shorts will be uploaded soon, focusing on Maximus (the horse) and Mother Gothel. I’ve been following this movie for almost a year and can’t wait for this Disney classic to come out! Dan and myself will be doing separate reviews, so stay tuned for Dan’s early review of Tangled sometime before the premiere.
Tangled premieres this thanksgiving, November 24th, in both 2D and 3D.
