This has been the half term from hell, I’ve caught a coughing virus and have been really ill all week – it turns out not being able to breathe and coughing your lungs up all week is a complete bummer when you have a small child off school. I feel awful she’s not even been to the park or shops all week, we’ve not done any art or gone to the beach. I have huge Mummy guilt for her crappy half term.
So Disney sending me their new release Tangled has been an utter godsend. She’s watched it to death and for a kid who’s not exactly into princesses – she’s more of a pirate girl – she really enjoyed it. It’s the story of Rapunzel updated and Disneyfied, as you can imagine the animation is beautiful and while there aren’t the memorable songs of ‘Aladdin’ or ‘Beauty and the Beast’, Alan Menkin’s score is fun and right on the mark. There aren’t any majorly scary bits and it’s I think one of the better Disney films of the last few years – more Pixar like with it’s humour and pace.
Here’s the trailer:
And there are some nice little games on the website to play as well – check them out if you’re kids are into the film. I hope you’re all having a better half term than us x
