Rapunzel in The Magic Kingdom


Was surfing the web for things Wicked. At Kristin Chenoweth’s (original Glinda on Broadway’s Wicked) website, I read that she has started work on Disney’s new animated movie Rapunzel: Unbraided!!! Chenoweth’s voicing Rapunzel… and an actress I really like, Reese Witherspoon, is voicing another main character in the film. YouTube has a short preview to the film. It’s not coming out till 2009 though. Still, it’s cool to have news that Disney’s returning to fairy-tales. I hope the songs will be good.

In the meantime, when I think of songs for Rapunzel, I will be chuckling over her prince in Agony from Into The Woods.


High in her tower,
She sits by the hour,
Maintaining her hair.
Blithe and becoming and frequently humming
A lighthearted air:

Agony! Far more painful than yours,
When you know she would go with you
If there only were doors.

You know nothing of madness
Till you’re climbing her hair
And you see her up there
As you’re nearing her,
All the while hearing her:

That can cut like a knife!
I must have her to wife.
