Total US domestic and worldwide box office since wide release is $355 million +.  With a whopping production budget of $260 million, "Tangled" has put the quality and return of Walt Disney Feature Animation back on the map.  A profit past break-even of a huge $95 million.  Wow!  Bravo, Disney, keep it up with your future animated film releases!

"Tangled" since opening 12-weeks ago has earned $193,291,000 in the US and $285,100,000 in foreign markets, for a total of $478,391,000 worldwide.  Fewer people nowadays buy movie tickets, and the movie did open in 3-D which commands higher than usual ticket prices.  Still, it's gratifying that people and families have embraced the return of Disney Feature Animation this way around the world.  Hoping for more good, family, movies from Disney FA in the future!  This weekend it's still playing in US theaters, but not many, and it's #16 this weekend vs. #13 last week.

And here's a full review, a day before "Tangled" goes into wide-release on home video and Blu-Ray.  For those of you who have home theaters plus love Disney movies, DVDizzy UltimateDisney.com has always written intelligent expert reviews of Disney home video releases.  If you are into the nitty-gritty of high tech home video, historic film restoration and transfer to digital technologies, is the movie just plain ol' any good or not, are the extra features any good or not....  DVDizzy - Ultimate Disney.com is worth bookmarking.  They are also on Facebook.

Full review of "Tangled" here at this link.

On DVD and Blu-Ray Tuesday, March 29, 2011.

Since Disney bought Pixar and installed Pixar's John Lasseter as head of Disney Feature Animation (in addition to still heading Pixar animation and heading Walt Disney Imagineering) the time and patience and dollar investment into retooling and reviving Disney Feature Animation finally paid off with "Tangled".  I mean in a box office money-making way.  

At Box Office Mojo "Tangled" webpage of box office statistics, you can see "Tangled" is an international box office hit.  While it didn't earn back it's massive $260 million production budget here in the US, it came close at around $197 million or so.  The rest of it's worldwide profits came from, well, the world.  The $200 million mark in the US is definitely blockbuster, and with more than $500 million world wide "Tangled" made back it's steep production costs, has it's own Princess merchandise, and you can meet the characters of Flynn and Rapunzel in the Disney theme parks.  "Tangled" is a money-maker people really, really liked.  World-wide.

This is Disney Feature Animation's best movie in terms of box office since Disney bought Pixar, and since the late 1990s-early 2000's.  Probably "Lilo and Stitch" was the last Disney Feature Animated movie that audiences liked, the studio made a profit off of it, spawned a TV cartoon series, and reintroduced Elvis Presley to a new generation.  And that was in 2004-2005.  

After that it was downhill creatively and profit-wise until John Lasseter came on board and started trying to build Disney FA back up again.

Now with "Tangled"'s success, Disney Feature Animation is back!  It's challenge with future film projects:  Keep up this success especially when studios like DreamWorks, Fox, Universal, Sony, Nickelodeon and others are clearly capable of issuing CGI family movies and borderline family movies (such as Nickelodeon's successful "Rango" this year starring Johnny Depp as a lizard, directed by Gore Verbinski who directed the three "Pirates of the Caribbean" movies for Disney).  Disney, even Pixar, not assured to be at the top of the heap with mass audiences.  Each new film is a challenge to keep up past successes.  When you practically let go of most of your animation staff, as Disney had done under Michael Eisner in the latter years of his being CEO at Disney (closing the Florida animation studio after "Lilo and Stitch), then other competing studios reap the benefit of talented skilled workers needing a job, who are motivated to do better at their new employer than the employer who closed their prior shop.  Disney has a tough row to hoe to return to the high quality and prestige that Walt built the Animation Studio up to be.  "Tangled" represents success at last in that rebuilding process.

"Tangled" represents a return to a lot that is familiar to Disney fans:  Disney Princess, European fairy tale retold for modern audiences with twists, the Disney musical.  It's score and a couple of songs were nominated for movie music awards.  It's newer twists include soft-pedalling that it's a Princess movie, it's music and songs, and to bring to the forefront it's emphasis on the lead male character Flynn.  It's the introduction and acknowledgement by Disney that Princess ultra-feminine movies and most of their characters make boys and guys squirm and to instead create male characters that boys and guys will like so that the whole family literally is entertained.  

If you remember the feeling of watching "The Little Mermaid" and "Beauty and the Beast" in the theaters in the late 1980s-early 1990s and thinking how great the music and characters and story were done, that's "Tangled" in 2010-2011.  Smart and clever, musical and with characters that are contemporary and buddy-like in part, romantic pay off at the end.... It's pure Disney but also pure Disney taking part in the contemporary time we're in.

Give it a try, on home video and Blu-Ray or download March 29, 2011 !   :pixiedust:  :thumbsup:

There's a direct link to Amazon.com at the bottom of this page.  Your support of the link doesn't cost you a cent extra in costs should you choose to use it.  But shopping at Amazon.com through the link at the bottom of this page (scroll down) can save you a bit of money and when combined with other online shopping can qualify you for free shipping or other deals.  The link takes you to Amazon.com's home video section, and from there "search" for "Tangled", and from there you can browse to other departments Amazon.com offers and shop for Disney things like theme park guidebooks or gifts, things you need for home or computer needs, etc.   :bowdown:
