MFM gets ‘Tangled’ at the BFI Southbank!

We got to see the yet-to-be-released 50th Disney animation, Tangled, to celebrate 'The Disney 50' at the BFI Southbank

Not your average damsel in distress

Our favourite Disney flick – what’s yours?

Nothing beats watching a fabulous movie on the big silverscreen, which is why we were delighted when invited to see the first ever UK screening of Disney’s latest flick, Tangled.


As it’s not being released in the UK until late January, we can’t give too much away about the film. But what we can say is that it’s definitely Disney at it’s best. In 3D. With a talking horse, dastardly Ogres, a green chameleon shoulder companion and the token evil witch. Oh, and lot’s and lot’s of hair…

Giving the classic Rapunzel fairytale a modern and kick ass twist, the long-haired leading gal is no pushover. Disney has moved on from the true love kiss and it’s the girl who is calling the shots in this movie – and it works!

Admittedly, I’m a big fan of Disney, but I think this film (which is released in the UK on January 28, 2011) has enough action, funny one liners and subtle adult humour to keep even the most anti-fairytale entertained – after all, everyone wants to live happily ever after right?

Cosied up in the HUGE screen at BFI Southbank, we were there not only to see the preview of Tangled, but to hear about the BFI’s latest venture. Joining forces with The Walt Disney Company, to give young and old audiences the chance to watch every single one of the 50 Disney animated films ever made.

Spanning the seventy years of films from the first ever technicolour feature film, Snow White, to The Lion King, the BFI will screen these films every weekend throughout 2011 in chronological order.

That’s right, you can take your little ones to Southbank every weekend and relive your Disney memories on the big screen in 2011. To refresh your memories, here are the films they’ll be showing in 2011…
