Tangled: References to Other Disney Films
Tangled was a mash up of several of Disney’s old films. Through out the film, hidden Easter eggs referring to their classic films can be found.
Pinocchio appears during the “I’ve Got A Dream” sequence
The “I See The Light” sequence was a direct reference to the “Kiss The Girl” sequence. They both are in boats and the guy is the one who suggested the boat rides to begin with. The songs themselves are similar in that they are trying to tell the guy to make a freaking move. And both romantic moments were ruined by the villains sidekicks. Ariel and Eric’s was ruined by Flotsam and Jetsam when they knocked over the boat, and Rapunzel and Eugene’s moment was ruined when Eugene saw the Stabbington Brothers on the shore.
The Spindle refers to Sleeping Beauty, of course.
The Apple refers to Snow White.
The dresser refers to the Wardrobe in Beauty and The Beast
The Rose refers to Belle and The Beast as a pair
The Shell refers to Ariel in The Little Mermaid
The Slipper refers t Cinderella’s Glass Slipper
