Disney's newest 3D comedy adventure Tangled has turned out to be a smash hit at the US box office, taking $69.1 million over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend. Disney's 50th animated film continues the studio's great tradition of box office success at Thanksgiving with Tangled making it the highest opening film ever for Walt Disney Animation Studios and the second biggest Thanksgiving weekend opener in history behind Disney Pixar's own Toy Story 2. “Tangled is full of hilarious characters, but it also has tremendous action and a lot of heart,” says John Lasseter, chief creative officer for Walt Disney and Pixar Animation Studios. “We wanted to create a unique world and story that evoke the rich, dramatic feeling that is classically Disney, but is also fresh and humorous, and that gives the audience something it has never seen before in computer animation. The filmmakers have created a world that builds on Disney's heritage but transports us to a land that is completely new.” ‘Tangled’ is due for release in the UK on January 28th 2011 in Disney Digital 3D and 2D.
