In reference to the tangled connections between the characters. Disney was originally going to call the movie Rapunzel Unbraided[1]. However, after the failure of The Princess and the Frog[2], Disney decided to take a hint from Pixar and make their titles more gender neutral: Disney hopes the introduction of the slightly bad-boy character will help it ...

As Catija mentioned in her answer, Rapunzel shows Flynn a lock of brown hair in the film which never increased after Mother Gothel cut them: If that single hair streak never changed in her whole life then we can safely assume that her hair will never grow back naturally. But she didn't really lost the power as she was able ...

Contrary to what @AJ says, you can't die of pain. Whatever causes pain - that can kill. Chronic pain can be enough of a stress to make you more susceptible to disease etc., thus indirectly killing you. But pain from a wound can't kill. Worst it can do is make you lose consciousness. The location of the wound is too low to involve the lungs. However, there's ...

I'm going to copy the answer from here. Credit for this answer goes to Valorum. The official 'Tangled Junior Novel' (issued by Disney Press) specifically recounts how Mother Gothel learned the "Healing Incantation": One day, an old woman named Mother Gothel was singing softly to herself during one of her walks along a craggy hillside. She looked down ...

Rapunzel was kidnapped by Mother Gothel when she was just a newborn, and she never met another person until Eugene came along. She mentioned her real birthday before that scene. So its clear that Mother Gothel told her the actual date of her birthday.

Dying from a stab can depend on a couple of things such as the targeted organ, depth of the stab, and lastly pain. We can see he was stabbed on the right side around the ribs. That's where your lung, diaphragm and liver are. The stab might have affected the intestines as well. We can see that she stabbed him with a big knife, so the wound might be deep. And ...

Nope. The film shows that, once cut, the hair never regains its magic. Rapunzel shows Flynn a lock of brown hair earlier in the film that had been cut by Mother Gothel before she was kidnapped that seems to have never grown back/turned blonde despite years having passed. Cutting the hair removes the magical properties permanently.

I've found no references about this anywhere online, so I'm going to say no, they are not (deliberate) references. There are plenty of Easter Eggs that Disney, and Pixar in particular, are famous for. For an example of these, see this link. However, no member of the production team for any of these films has made any comment about observations like yours, ...

Nathan Greno: The original intention was to make a film more closely related to something like Cinderella, where your main character is Cinderella, and there’s also a prince that’s in the movie that shows up once in a while. So we started developing: Okay, who is the male character in the show? We started playing around with scenes with our writer,...

Because all of the Tangled merchandise uses Rapunzel with long hair. So the Princesses are depicted with their common look and standard costume, the actual movie plots have no bearing on their appearance in Ralph Breaks the Internet.

Maybe It's difficult to tell from the film, but the likelihood is that, after 17 years, Gothel has developed a degree of fondness for Rapunzel. That said, her actions are still very much in her own self interest. In order for the hair to work, it must be Rapunzel who sings. A sad Rapunzel who is kept in a bare room with minimal food is unlikely to want ...

In movie Tangled NO. Rapunzel's hair, used as the main source of physical restoration throughout Tangled, turns brown upon being cut and fails to ever grow longer after being cut But in some other version of story YES. Wikipedia In some versions of the story, Rapunzel's hair magically grows back after the prince touches it.

In the Tangled TV series, Rapunzel gets her hair back: Since the movie also contains a reference to Cassandra from the show, it would appear that the movie takes place including TV canon. This reference, by the way, is a painting of an owl on the wall during the princesses scene that looks quite similar to Cassandra's owl ...

Because "Flynn" is a persona he developed, a thief. Reverting back to his birth name indicates his dramatic change of heart -- due to falling in love with Rapunzel. As described by Conny Eisfeld in her book How Fairy Tales Live Happily Ever After: (Analyzing) The Art of Adapting Fairy Tales: In the end, Rapunzel does achieve a transformation of the ...

She won't die immediately. But the movie up to this point established that the hair could stop people (i.e. the witch) from aging and basically grant immortality and eternal youth. So he means that she now has to die like every other human, since the hair seems to be the source of that magic and cutting it/using it up will presumably destroy said source.
