There was a grandmother who originally ran this pub when it was new. She planted a cute tree that has now grown and grown…. Now it is pushing over the pub and has become incorporated into it. –DOUG ROGERS, DESIGNER

Rogers says there’s a shrine to the grandmother in the Duckling that no one will ever see.

The comparison of this concept art with the final film version illustrates this quote about how Directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard changed the tone of “Tangled” when they came on board:

We went from a Rembrandt-meets-Ridley-Scott vision to something more like ‘Cinderella’ – bright, cheerful, saturated, even in its darker story moments. More indicative of a traditional Disney feel. It’s just lighter. In all senses of the word, lighter.  –DAN COOPER, CO-ART DIRECTOR 

I can completely see the “Ridley Scott” comment in the left concept art. There’s something brooding and almost menacing in it – like a Renaissance “Blade Runner.” In some ways, I expect (and hope) that “Brave” will stick a toe into this territory.

What constitutes a villain? It’s somebody who wants something with such intensity and such great need but comes to a place of not being bound by any kind of moral code or any sense of what’s ethical. Or any sense of being concerned with any consequences and how they might affect someone else. They will do anything to get what they want.   –DONNA MURPHY

I started … documenting my life in a sketchbook and turning it into Rapunzel. Cleaning up my house, putting away clothes, separating the dirty from the clean. I’m singing while I’m doing it. That leads to a life-as-art thing, where everything Rapunzel is doing is another opportunity for art.   -CLAIRE KEANE

This collage is of all Rapunzel’s self-portraits in the tower. I love how Claire Keane had Rapunzel transfigure all her ordinary activities into magical moments.
