Disney Releases 50th Animated Feature Film: “Tangled”

In celebration of the release of its 50th animation feature film, Disney is showing all fifty films in the same London location.

Tangled will be screened at NFT1, BFI Southbank in 3D on the day of the film’s UK premiere, 16th January 2011, 4.15pm. This will be followed by a special on-stage Q&A with the film’s directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard. The remaining forty nine animated Disney films will then be shown chronologically at BFI Southbank every weekend for the rest of the year starting with Disney’s first animation feature, and the first-ever animation feature in technicolour, Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs (1937).

The blurb for the 2011 feature, Tangled, is as follows:

Tangled is an action-packed, swashbuckling, animated musical comedy about the girl behind 70 feet of magical, golden hair.  Stolen from her parents’ castle as a baby, Rapunzel is locked in a hidden tower longing for adventure. Now an imaginative and determined teenager, she takes off on a hilarious, hair-raising escapade with the help of a dashing bandit named Flynn Rider. With the secret of her heritage hanging in the balance and her captor in pursuit, Rapunzel and her cohort find adventure, heart, humour, and hair… lots of hair.  With music by Alan Menken, this comedic re-imagining of the classic Brothers Grimm fairytale comes to UK theatres in Disney Digital 3D™ on January 28th 2011.

Further cinematic milestones due to show at BFI Southbank include; Fantasia (1940), the first major motion picture in stereophonic sound, Lady and the Tramp (1955), the first animated feature in CinemaScope, The Rescuers Down Under (1990), the first feature film to be shot using a 100% digital process; Beauty and the Beast (1991), the first animated feature to be nominated for the Academy Award for Best Picture; The Lion King (1994), the highest grossing traditionally-animated film of all time; and Pocahontas (1995), the largest-ever film premiere event with over 100,000 viewers.
