It is without a shadow of a doubt that Frozen is the most popular Disney Animated Classic to come out of the series. As reported earlier on The Inquisitr, the 53rd movie in the series is the first to break the $1 billion mark in box office sales. However, what some people may not know is certain princess who used to have super-long hair and a former thief appear in the movie too.
Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, from the 50th Disney Animated Classic, Tangled, appear near the beginning of Frozen. Their roles technically don’t show their faces and they don’t speak. However, the cameo is verified through Nathan Greno, the co-director of Tangled, as reported by Cartoon Brew. Below is a screenshot from Frozen where Rapunzel and Flynn Rider appear.
There are other cameos in Frozen, especially to 2012’s Disney Animated Classic, Wreck-It Ralph. However, the scenario above has caused more rumors and opinions to fly than anything else. Are Anna, Elsa, Oleg, Kristoff, and Sven in the same time period as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider? Apparently, a theory on Reddit through IGN, is trying to make sense of it.
“Ok, so somewhere near the end of Tangled, Flynn tells Rapunzel that he has heard Arendelle is nice this time of year. In Frozen, during the song “For the First Time in Forever,” Flynn and Rapunzel can be seen outside right after the gates are opened and Anna comes out of them. But why are the happy couple at Arendelle?
It all has to do with the King and Queen in Frozen. Since it’s apparent Frozen and Tangled take place in the same universe, there must be a reason (didn’t know how to end the sentence). When a long lost princess is found and becomes married, that would be cause for other royals to come to the wedding. In Frozen, the King and Queen were leaving for Rapunzel’s wedding. But wait there’s more! The reason why Flynn and Rapunzel are at Elsa’s coronation is because they knew why Anna and Elsa’s parents were dead. They felt guilty because it was indirectly their fault the princesses of Arendelle were orphans.
But where’s my evidence?! Tangled came out in November 2010 and Frozen came out November of 2013. That’s 3 years apart…just the same amount of time it was between the King and Queen’s death and Elsa’s coronation. BAM!”
So what do you all think? Do you think Rapunzel and Flynn Rider’s cameo is simply just a cameo, or is it something more?
