We’re gonna watch Tangled when we hang out, Chelsea.
“The character design of Flynn came from the process which was called the “hot man meeting” by Nathan Greno and Byron Howard, during which they set up a meeting with all of the female employees of the studio in one room and asked them for their opinions of what made a man good looking in order to create Flynn’s character design with features such as eye color, hair color and style and body type. Video footage showed concept art and photos of various male celebrities, including Johnny Depp, Hugh Jackman, Brad Pitt, David Beckham and Gene Kelly on the walls of the room. Director Byron Howard said they wanted to make Flynn “the most handsome, most attractive male lead Disney has ever had.”
“The hot man meeting” is now my second favorite animation design story, after the one about how Pixar animators working on the Dug team for Up had “fat dog day” where they basically went to a shelter and were like “please bring out your fattest dogs,” and then they hung out with the fattest jolliest available dogs, all day.
Pixar wins, everyone else go home

Rapunzel: And we’re living happily ever after!
Eugene: Yes, we are.
I would love it if only the first two panels were true, and the last line of dialogue never happened :P
Why? I’m curious.
Oh thank god, this has always bugged me a little too. Nevermind that this movie in general makes me uncomfortable because of how well it portrays a very emotionally abusive parental relationship (which is great for the movie makers, they clearly did their research and it was a very believable relationship, it just hit way too close to home).
It just bugs me that there has to be a ‘no actually’ explanation here. That it’s absurd for Rapunzel to have asked Eugene to marry her. That because he’s the man in the relationship, of course he asked her. The implication with this line of dialogue is that the viewer is thinking to themselves ‘no, wait, of course he had to ask her! He’s the man!’ and Eugene has to clarify that this is in fact true.
At least, that’s how it’s always come across to me. It’s probably meant far more innocently than that, as a gag, but it always bugs me every time I watch Tangled and I usually just skip the last few minutes because of it.
I never heard it that way. I thought it meant the exact opposite - that he’s making her out to need his awesome self so much that she has to beg and beg to get him to say yes, and Rapunzel is taking him down a peg. I thought it was a fun reversal of usual gender dynamics because it presents the man as being the one in awe of the woman and unable to live without her. She’s clearly running the relationship, as the dip shows. While I have no doubt that she accepted quickly, I feel like he might have actually been worried she wouldn’t.
^I agree with that, although I can see the other reading too.
Main main issue is the second image. They got married like a week later, not years and years. What we should take away from this scene is that Flynn likes to embellish the truth and probably is still trying to impress his “friends” by making it seem that he was the irresistible one, even though they both were crazy for each other.
Also, can I mention how cute it is that Rapunzel calls him Eugene? *squeeeee*
