Rapunzel is the last princess before Merida, having been released in 2010. I thought she was AWESOME!! Resourceful, witty, helpful, she makes watching the movie Tangled a delight. However, upon closer inspection Flynn takes the reigns and controls much of their journey when she asks him to take her to see the lights that light up the night sky every year on her birthday. Further, her journey to these lanterns is hinged upon Flynn, who she absolutely needs to take her. Why can’t she just make her own way there? Will Disney ever make a princess whose narrative is not juxtaposed to that of a man? Stay tuned for Merida! Here are some funny moments from TangledĀ  to ease the depression of a dependent female character
