Disney has been on a roll the last few years with their animated films, with Tangled, Frozen, and Big Hero 6 (I am talking Disney proper, not Pixar. I KNOW how good Inside Out was). Good news for Tangled fans, as the cartoon series will be premiering in 2017 on the Disney Channel with Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles as Rapunzel and Flynn.
And while you are waiting those two years, here is something that will attempt to curb that appetite. In the above video, Disney has re-imagined the classic tale of Rapunzel in emoji form (Our own Rachael Berkey posted about Frozen’s emoji makeover a few months ago. You can check that out here). From Rapunzel being taken by Mother Gothel to Flynn’s sacrifice to save her to everyone living happily ever after, you can see all the great moments done in the style of someone not linking using the text function on their device.
In our July 22nd Movie Morsels, we reported that Sony was producing an Emoji movie. At least now they will have some inspiration. I wonder if they have to cancel production if their head animator drops his or her phone in a puddle.
For more Disney goodness, you can check out videos on their YouTube channel.
So what do you think? Has Disney innovated an whole new way to tell stories? Or was it merely an excuse to sit on their phones all day? What other Disney classics would you like seen in emoji? Let me know on Twitter or in the comments below.
