I decided to start a series of analyzing the DP Couples in depth (and later, the other 迪士尼 Couples) after I got bored one day, and wanted to write a series of articles. 你 can recommend me which couple to do 下一个 in the couples section. So here is how it is going to go. I will first explain my 总体, 整体 statement about the couples in a paragraph, and then I will analyze each scene to look at the inner and outer feelings of the characters individually an the couple itself.
Here is the first DP Couple Analysis:link First thoughts right after watching the Movie
Right after watching Tangled,I believe that Rapunzel and Flynn were in love, and were very realistic in the way they did. They actually talked to one another about themselves, their pasts, interests, and grow to fall in 爱情 with one another, and not instantly fall in love. They tell each other their biggest secrets, and trust one another to the point that they become one another's new dream. Things are seen differently now that they have one another and they are with one another. Putting my feelings of the movie and characters aside, I have to say that this is most likely the best-written couple in 迪士尼 history.
So, when we first see Rapunzel and Flynn together, she knocks him out after he unintentionally invades in her home. She hides him in the closet to 显示 Mother Gothel that she is tough enough to take care of herself, but when that fails, she decides that she is going to use him to take her to the towers. So, she ties him up to the chair with her hair, and waits for Pascal to wake him up. She hides in the dark at first to ask him what he wants with her and her hair (this coming from what Mother Gothel told her), and Flynn knows nothing of what she is talking about. Thinking of her as being a simple girl who could easily be charmed, he tries to first charm her with the "Hi, how 你 doing" in that smug voice, which fails on her. Then he realizes that his 书包, 挎包 is missing, and asks her where it is. She says that he will never find out where it is. He guesses it is in that big bowl, and she knocks him out again to hide it in a better place, and when he wakes up, she tells him that now he will never find it. She makes a proposition with him saying that after he takes her to the lights on her birthday, only then will she give him back his satchel, saying that she promises and that she NEVER breaks her promises. Flynn then realizes that she is persistent and says that he did not want it to come down to this, but he has to give her the "dashing" smolder. He feels a bit embarrassed when that fails to work on her. I forgot to mention a point that took place before all of this happened. When Flynn walks up to the tower and gets knocked out, Rapunzel looks at him in interest and curiosity, and then looks at the drawing that Mother Gothel drew (men with pointy teeth), she uses the frying pan to open his mouth, and is shocked to the fact that he has no pointy teeth. She then moves the hair that is covering his eye, and then she looks at him in awe, like he is the most beautiful thing she has ever seen. At the end of the tower scene, Flynn does not think much of Rapunzel other than the fact that she is getting in the way of his plans, and she is a bit attracted but also intimidated 由 him (by knocking him out three times as an automatic reaction).
Flynn is upset that his charm did not work in his favor of getting out of dealing with Rapunzel, while she is 更多 than thrilled that she is outside the tower for the first time. She is thrilled of doing simple things like smelling the dirt/grass, and feeling the summer breeze. She then goes through a range of emotions afterward, because of how Mother Gothel would feel about it, which he notices and tries to use towards his advantage. He says that rebellion is a good thing (saying that she needs to crush Gothel's 心 like a grape, knowing that she is too good-hearted). He says that he is taking her out of the deal "for her own good" , and when she refuses, he practically yells "Oh come on". At this point, he does not care for her as a person and still does not have much of an opinion of her, and she does not really have that much of an opinion about him either (though finding him a bit cute when seeing his face for the first time). After that, a noise is heard, and she automatically thinks it is ruffians and thugs (thanks to Mother Gothel), and automatically jumps on his back. This shows that she trusts him to protect her, even though there has not been any proof of him willing to do so at this point. Now knowing that she is afraid of ruffians and thugs, he uses this to try to scare her out of the deal again, 由 taking her to the Snuckly 小鸭 pub. When they reach the destination, the thugs almost instantly recognizes Flynn as the wanted man, and each of them want to sell him for money, and they all literally fight for him and pull him in all directions. Rapunzel interrupts them and tells then that she needs them to let him go, so he can take her to the lanterns and asks him if they have ever had a dream, thus "I've Got A Dream" is sung. After the song takes place, the guards of Corona enter the pub looking for Flynn. He grabs Rapunzel and hides (I think at this point, he gave up trying to get her out of the deal and abandoning her after realizing how persistent she is, and realized that he is stuck with her). The pubs help them hide and for them to escape without the guards finding them. At the end of this part, Flynn is 更多 open to Rapunzel in the fact that she is not just a pest, and both are interested in one another as people, but don't know much about one another.
Here is where their relationship gets a lot 更多 interesting. They are in the secret tunnel that they entered from the pub, and Flynn says that he did not know that she had the toughness in her at the pub. She pulls her hair back in that crush-y way, and then asks him about his past, and refuses to answer (his biggest secret). He then says that he cannot ask her about her hair, 或者 her mother; so I am assuming that they made an agreement earlier not to talk about it 或者 something. He does say that he is interested in her past. I do believe that here is where he started to take a real interest in her life and as a person. He asks her why she did not leave the tower earlier, and she did not have the time to answer because the guards, Maximus, and the Sabbington Brothers 显示 up, and they have to escape them and to not get trapped in the water. They have both saved one another in that life-threatening experience. They ended up in a blocked crevice that is slowly getting filled with water. They feel bad about almost dying and being in the situation that they found themselves in. Rapunzel feels really bad that she put him in the situation, and apologizes. He tells her that his real name is Eugene because someone should know, and she tells him and remembers that she has glowing hair. These were one of their biggest secrets, and they must have built a lot of trust for one another to tell this. Her magic hair helps them out of the situation and ends up saving their lives. They come out of the river, and he still cannot get over the fact that she has hair that can glow, and then gets up. I noticed that she called him 由 Eugene, she calls him it 3 times before he actually responds, and I think this is because he was not used to someone calling him 由 his name. At the campfire, she tells him that her hair just does not just glow, but it also heals people, and he now understands why she was not allowed to leave the tower. He then tells her about his past in his orphanage and so on. He feels things are a bit weird, so he goes to get firewood. Mother Gothel shows up and in "Mother Knows Best Reprise", Rapunzel reveals that she has romantic feelings for Flynn.
At this point of the film, it is clear that their relationship is turning romantic, but it is not very romantic yet. At the "Kingdom Dance" scene, Flynn's feelings develop a lot in this little scene. He smiles when he sees her dancing, and when the little girls were braiding her hair, ad tried to dance with her 更多 than a few times, but both weer dragged 由 the people of the kingdom, and both caught one another after being tossed at the end of the scene. Some person yells "TO THE BOATS". When they are at the boats, Rapunzel is terrified about actually seeing the lights because she is worried about it not being as fulfilling as she thought it was, and about what she would do afterwards, and he says that 你 find another dream. During their duet, they say that everything is different now that they are in one another's lives, and neither are scared about life anymore now that they have one another. They are about to kiss, until Flynn spots something weird on the surface. They like one another because they are easy to talk to, understand one another, and everything is clear to each other when they were around one another.
After Rapunzel finds out the truth about her birth parents and her life, she fight Gothel to get away from her, and put to restraints. Flynn escapes prison, and asks the Sabbington Brothers what they did to Rapunzel, and they tell him that Gothel has her and that she was up to everything about his capture and their plan. The thugs from the Snugly 小鸭 help him escape, ad he goes to the tower. When he enters the tower, Gothel stabs him, and Rapunzel makes a deal with Gothel that she will go with her if she saves his life. She is about to heal him, but eh cuts her hair, sacrificing his life for her freedom. After Gothel dies, Flynn tells her that she was his new dream, and she tells him the same, and he dies. She cries and sings the healing song for a last hope, and the tear heals him and brings him back to life. He realizes that he is alive, and she pecks him in excitement. He kisses her passionately afterwards, and then we zoom out of the tower (nothing probably happened after we are zoomed out, but we never know). In the epilogue, both are extremely happy, and play around with one another in the way that couples do. They took time to finally get married after he proposed to her many times, and she finally accepted. We don't know what happened in between then, but they took a lot of time, unlike most DP Couples. Final Thoughts
After analyzing this couple, I do believe that initially, they did not think much of one another, but grew to care and 爱情 each other over the course of the film. Their relationship is probably the one with the least conflict and issues compared to the other 迪士尼 Couples, which made their relationship develop less quickly, which makes their relationship a lot 更多 realistic. They trusted one another so easily (especially on Rapunzel's case), and just opened up to one another just because they listen to one another, and it was really easy to. Their relationship is probably the most natural, believable relationship 迪士尼 has ever created, and 你 understand what attracted them to one another. They made sacrifices for one another, got to know one another as people, and did things for themselves and each other when needed. They are still individuals when in a relationship, and not defined 由 their relationship with each other instead of individuals. If 你 have any recommendations of which couple do 你 want me to do next, say it in the comments, and explain how 你 feel about this relationship, and how the movie executes it.
