Posted Wed Jan 26, 2011 at 08:00 AM PST by

Disney's latest blockbuster (raking in 400 million worldwide!!) will be climbing down Blu-ray and Blu-ray 3D's hair at the end of March!

Disney/Buena Vista is working on the animated fairy tale 'Tangled' and 'Tangled - 3D' for a high-definition release on March 29.

Featuring unexpected heroes, magic, laughter and adventure, this animated feature is supported by an amazing cast of voice talents including Mandy Moore (A Walk To Remember, The Princess Diaries) as Rapunzel, Zachary Levi (TV’s Chuck, Less Than Perfect) as Flynn Rider, Brad Garrett (TV’s Everybody Loves Raymond, ’Til Death) as Hook Hand Thug, Donna Murphy (Spider-Man 2, The Fountain) as Mother Gothel, and Ron Perlman (Hellboy, Hellboy II: The Golden Army, The City of Lost Children) as the Stabbington Brothers. From directors Byron Howard (BOLT) and Nathan Greno and the award-winning songwriter of The Little Mermaid and Beauty and the Beast, Alan Menken, TANGLED’s hair-raising adventure keeps viewers entertained throughout with its exciting storyline and memorable melodies.

“Disney's spirited re-telling of Rapunzel in 3D animation turns out to be a dazzler.” Peter Travers, Rolling Stone

“'Tangled' has all of the qualities we look for in an animated Disney feature... Bravo!” Leonard Maltin

The Blu-rays will feature 1080p video, DTS-HD Master Audio 7.1 soundtracks, and supplements include: Two original storybook openings: two alternate versions of the film's opening sequence described by the co-directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard; and 50th Animated Feature Countdown – A video montage celebrating Tangled as the 50th film to join The Walt Disney Studios' prestigious lineup of classic animated features.

Blu-ray exclusives include: Untangled: The Making of a Fairy Tale: Exactly how long is Rapunzel's hair? How many lanterns were used? Where did Pascal's name come from? Which Disney animated feature first utilized CG animation? These and more will be answered when Mandy Moore and Zach Levi take viewers on a kooky behind-the-scenes tour to learn how the filmmakers styled this film's Golden Tresses; Three deleted scenes with introductions by co-directors Byron Howard and Nathan Greno; Extended songs with introductions by the co-directors: "When Will My Life Begin" & "Mother Knows Best"; and Nine Tangled teasers: a collection of the most unique and quirky commercials made for the theatrical release of Tangled Some are spoofs based off of infomercials and/or breaking news, some are teasers and others are simply just funny filmstrips.

Suggested list price for the Blu-ray/DVD combo pack is $39.99 and the Blu-ray 3D combo pack is $49.99.
