Conception Of the Movie


This movie was actually started over a decade before its release, and went through subsequent changes including a different title for the movie, and various changes in the animation of the film. Many people in charge of the movie came and went, leading to the final version that was seen at the movies. The production of the film, and the recording, maintained a good schedule, although it was one of the more expensive Disney movies ever made. At a cost of $260 million to produce, it is one of the few movies that used as many as 50 Disney CGI artists, as well as traditional animators, to create the movie that ended up being the final version. CGI was also used in the development of the three-dimensional version, using subsurface scattering to create much more humanlike characters. At the box office, it earned less than the cost of production of only $200 million, but scored excellent profits worldwide taking in almost double that amount. As far as the critics, it received primarily positive reviews and though not regarded as one of the greatest Disney movies, is definitely one of their best. One of the highlights of the movie was the song I’ve Got A Dream which was also composed by Alan Menken.

Remembered as the silly barbarian song, it is one of the favorite sinus with children that watch the show. Although it is not at the same level as the other songs that were sung including the fan favorite I See The Light, is definitely one of the best of the 20 songs on the soundtrack that are heard during the movie.

This song is one of many excellent ones that were crafted by Menken, and clearly shows that he still has the ability to produce excellent songs as he did for The Little Mermaid and Aladdin decades ago. If you have children, they will definitely love this movie which is innovative, and also portrays an excellent rendition of the story of Rapunzel that most people have heard in their youth.
