I am starting a thread to reply to Ruiz's post in another thread in regard to the movie 'Tangled.' While I see the concerns expressed I disagree on the supposed 'rebellion.' If an 18 year old young women desired to escape from a kidnapper who had imprisoned her for her entire life I would support such an escape. She should never have to remain captive to her abductor. In the movie Rapunzel does not make the final act of 'rebellion' until she recalls that she is not the daughter of the kidnapper. This cruel abductor was using an innocent child purely for her own gain. I don't believe we can make any excuse for her. Rapunzel was kidnapped, lied to, imprisoned, and misled to benefit a selfish child abuser. In the end she knew that she had to get back to her real mom and dad. Disney is far from perfect. They have done plenty that I disagree with, but this film, despite a few minor flaws, is not the evil it is portrayed to be.
