actually, admitting you lurked went a long way to showing your nerdfighterian character...i'd say.  anyway, welcome Sue.  i also find myself going, 'do they even care? ...why don't they care? this is fascinating stuff!'


I know, I get really annoyed that people don't get as excited about things I am interested in. I get so frustrated. -.- And thank you for the warm welcome :)


What do you know about Tangled?

I heard they made a lot of changes, adding more action and even changing the title to something besides the princess' name so as to attract more male viewers.

I've been trying to find out what the original plans for the story and characters were...

I know that it was supposed to be called Rapunzel, and the title and the role of Flynn Ryder  was change because Princess & The Frog kind of bombed, and Disney thought it was because it was too girly. Flynn Ryder was supposed to originally fail in getting anywhere near Rapunzel, and actually falls in cahoots with the 'mother'. So Rapunzel escapes herself, and Flynn Ryder was there to drive her back to her 'mother'. 

But apart from being way too dark, Disney dropped the storyline after it felt there wasn't much interest for boys. So, he ends up being a bit of a lovable rogue, supposed to be based on Aladdin from the Disney adaptation. As that is one of the few 'Princess' movies that boys really liked. So a lot of the ideas put in Tangled, were rejections from Aladdin.


The original sounds a little like The Incredibles, with Mirage and Flynn playing similar roles. I think it would have been interesting with a little more darkness...


Yeah, Disney seem to always back down when stories take a turn to being darker.

Hello. :)

I just joined, though I've been checking out the site for a little while. I don't normally join things like this- I'm too shy. But nerdfighters seem my sorta people, so I guess I thought why not become one? So I'm hoping I don't feel too stupid after posting, haha x]

I guess I'm a nerd because, I'm  just an all round nerd? I don't specialise in any particular area, but I love gaming, literature, science, manga and anime, discussions, random factual information and good grammar.

I think that's about it really. Hello!


I'm generally too shy, too. On the internet and beyond.

Grammar lovers unite, here. People generally type pretty well on here, it rocks. :D

So I've noticed; it does rock. :D
welcome Hannah!  good timing with the love of random factual info...
So it seems! I love Disney films (:
Hello Nerdfighteria! I'm Chloe, and I've actually been a nerdfighter for a long time, and I've been getting into more lately. In what ways am I nerdy? In every way! I'm an avid reader, I play ukulele, I knit, I've been to the last three midnight premieres of Harry Potter, I can quote all the Lord of the Rings movies.

Can't wait to get out there and spread the awesome, one ukulele song at a time :]
