Dark Origins of Disney Fairy Tales
The origin of Disney Tangled i.e. Rapunzel has been toned down over the ages for children. Brothers Grimm s Rapunzel, the captive of a witch, held in a tall tower, gets pregnant after she invites a prince to her tower. When she innocently remarks that her clothes feel tight around her belly, the angry witch chops off her hair and sends her off to a far off place where soon she begs to feed her children, while the prince, who is lured with the cut off locks, is thrown off the tower and is blinded by thorny bushes. But, after wandering around, living off grass and leaves, he finally finds his family.
