As Pixar's John Lasseter and Ed Catmull pull Disney Animation into the future, they've made one bold decision: no more fairy tales, at least for the time being.

They've scratched the last two fairy tale films in development at Disney, The Snow Queen and Jack and the Beanstalk. When Disney's retitled Rapunzel film--Tangled--opens Wednesday in glorious 3-D, it could be the last fairy tale feature made by the storied studio that was built by founder Walt Disney on such classic tales as Snow White, Sleeping Beauty and Cinderella. Catmull told the LAT:

"Films and genres do run a course. They may come back later because someone has a fresh take on it … but we don't have any other musicals or fairy tales lined up."

One of the stars of Tangled is the incredibly lengthy golden mane of the fabled Rapunzel, who let down her hair to the young swain who would save her from her prison tower. She swings, dangles, throws and uses as a weapon these amazing tresses. This could only be possible in the age of CG. (The WSJ has more details.) Maybe because I understand the massive effort and algorithms required to achieve this feat, I found watching these golden locks exhausting, overwhelming. We will see how Tangled fares at the holiday box office.
