New 'Rapunzel' Pictures

A Brazilian blog, Animations, has several magazine scans featuring the first photos of Rapunzel, the new CG Disney film which will transport audiences to “to a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and, of course, the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses. Expect adventure, heart, humor, and hair, lots of hair.”

The film is being directed by two bigwigs from Bolt: Byron Howard and Nathan Greno.

As you can see, the style of the film (as made by Glen Keane) is very interesting. It is said to be in the style of the painting "The Swing" by Rococo artist Jean-Honore Fragonard. The film 'uses a non-photorealistic rendering technique which will make the surface look like it is painted but still containing depth and dimensions.'

The animated film will come out on Christmas of next year (with the first trailer most likely surfacing as an attachment to the summer release of Toy Story 3), and is rumored to have a cast consisting of David Schwimmer, Kristin Chenoweth, and David Fogler, among others.
