Disney's take on the Rapunzel fairytale gave us a lovely new princess heroine who's beautiful, brave (except for one moment of completely reasonable anxiety), and a whole lot of fun. Along with possession incredible, magic hair, she's also plucky and an adorable badass with a frying pan. The movie, Tangled, is sweet without being cloying, and the two leads - Rapunzel and Flynn Rider - are wonderfully charming, yet imperfect as to allow the audience to actually relate to them. Though this tale still has the male hero coming to the rescue of the princess, Rapunzel isn't without agency, and it's a fresher take on the Disney formula.
