AT LEAST THEY'RE NOT MAKING KENDRICK DYE HER HAIR BLONDE:  To more smoothly incorporate Into The Woods into Disney canon, they're changing a few character names--rather than just "Rapunzel's Prince" and "Cinderella's Prince,"the characters will be "Flynn Rider" and "Prince Charming" (though (a) Flynn wasn't a prince, and (b) if you're going that way, why not just go ahead and cast Zachary Levi?), and "Cinderella's Stepmother" is officially "Lady Tremaine."

ETA:  Disney now claims that was an error.


  1. Strikes me as corporate synergy gone wrong. Are they expecting 7-year-olds to go to the movie and get confused because Rapunzel's prince doesn't have a name?

    Just let the worlds exist separate from each other. ITW isn't a franchise. It can sit off to the side of everything that's going on.

    Yep, Disney missed the point.

    But . . . Flynn Rider doesn't get blinded, does he? So confused. So stupid.
