Thanks to Disney, we’re given a remake of the story filled with much more color, love, lessons, and music!

Tangled tells the tale of a long-lost princess with long, blonde, and magical locks.

Did These Tangled Quotes Push You to Step Out of Your Comfort Zone?

Most, if not all, Disney movies have countless lessons to impart. But, Tangled is one that really touches on the most critical aspects of our lives.

Yes, Tangled talks about love through Rapunzel’s relationship with Flynn Rider. More than that, though, the movie teaches us about being fearless, appreciating the small things, and never giving up. 

Rapunzel was cooped up and hidden from the world in the tower, but she dreamed of being free and exploring the world. It takes a lot of courage to go against our parents’ wishes and step into a place that’s completely new and unknown to us. But, that didn’t stop her; instead, she was brave, and she never got discouraged when reaching her dreams.

When she finally escaped, Rapunzel came across many things she hadn’t experienced before. She saw flowing streams, small and fragrant flowers, and the sunshine shining through the clouds and leaves. These are ordinary, everyday things, but it didn’t escape her curious and appreciative heart.

She serves as a reminder that life’s wonders are made up of the smallest things. Rapunzel also reminds us to always continue on the path toward our goals. We’ll meet different people and come across many things that may or may not be good, but they’re all experiences we can learn from, nonetheless.

We hope you were able to see the more profound meaning and lessons behind Tangled through this list. Whenever you miss the characters or their lines, feel free to take another scroll through this collection.
