1. Tangled Up in You

Disney is often criticized for making its female characters fit too much into a damsel in distress archetype. Waiting until 2010 to make Tangled was a fantastic decision on Disney’s part because it allowed for Rapunzel to break the princess stereotype and become one of the strongest, and most independent princesses to date.

Instead of having a stalwart prince rescue her, Rapunzel rescues herself and makes it work with a crook. The deviation from the usual script was refreshing to watch and these cosplayers that were outside waiting for some late-night panels paid a great homage to characters. Even Pascal had a place in Rapunzel’s long locks.
