Charming take on the 'Rapunzel' story
5 July 2016 | by See all my reviews

'Timeless Tales from Hallmark' is a wonderful show, adapting well-loved stories and while not completely faithful it treats them with respect and tells the stories with plenty of heart and charm without over-complicating or dumbing them down.

"Rapunzel" is not quite one of the best of the series, based on a story that is still lovely but not one of my favourites. As an adaptations, it's not one of the faithful ones with a different ending that is not as moving as the original ending, but the basic structure is there.

As a standalone, it's lovely and charming with many heartfelt moments. The story is always well-paced, never hurried or stretched out, and is told with a whole lot of heart and charm.

With the animation, as always with the 'Timeless Tales from Hallmark', There's plenty of vibrant colour, the backgrounds have a great amount of detail and it's smoothly drawn. The music is whimsical and poignant, the songs having a lot of emotional impact.

Scripting is nicely written with a lot of pathos that doesn't feel forced or cloying. The live-action bookend scenes are beautifully done. The characters do a great job carrying the story, with charming and not bland leads and a great villains in Carlotta. The voice acting is impressive, with an emotive Rapunzel and a menacing Scarlotta.

In summary, not quite one of the best of the show but very well done still. 9/10 Bethany Cox
