Hi everyone! So, I got the chance to watch "Tangled" and its special features last night. I had so much fun! :) Let me just say, aside from the great story and music that takes me back to the films I grew up on ("The Little Mermaid", "Beauty and the Beast", "Aladdin"...), this is an absolutely breathtaking film. I love the beauty of the animation. It's so fun to see all of the attention to detail, especially on the human characters. The lighting, the scenery...everything blends together to make a perfect mix. Since I'm familiar with the story, it was fun being able to focus on details this time around.
As far as special features go, I was a little bit disappointed. I only watched the regular Blu-ray, so I don't know if there are more special features on the 3-D Blu-ray. I won't know for a long time, as I don't have a 3-D compatible TV.
The features they had were fun...I just was expecting more of them. Maybe I'm too used to the "Diamond Edition" Blu-rays with loads of extra stuff. There were a few deleted scenes, a couple of extended songs, lots of fun Tangled trailers (a lot of which I'd seen on Disney.go.com), and a really fun countdown of all 50 animated features from Disney. That will be nice to have as a reference. :) There was also a behind the scenes featurette hosted by Mandy Moore (the voice of Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (the voice of Flynn/Eugene). The featurette was fun and light (it looked like something that was probably made for the Disney channel), but didn't go into as much detail as I was hoping for.
There also didn't seem to be any sort of pop-up menu on this Blu-ray like there has been for others. Oh well, maybe I'm just too picky! :} I'm sure there are at least a couple of Easter Eggs, since there usually are on Disney films. I was hoping to check the Web today and see if anyone has discovered them yet.
So, I guess that's about it. Overall, I'd give the Blu-ray a 4 out of 5 stars, just because I would have liked to see more Bonus Features. I'd be interested to hear what all of you think, too. :)
P.S. My dolls got to have a movie night and watch with me. Tess did a post about it on her blog, and she'd love it if all of you checked it out. For now, here's a pic of all of them enjoying the movie. :)
