Disney Tangled Artist Claire Keane Asks What Would Rapunzel Do?

Debuts as the Ultimate 4-Disc Disney Blu-ray™ Combo Pack on March 29, 2011

When the kingdom’s most wanted—and most charming—bandit Flynn Rider (voice of ZACHARY LEVI) hides out in a mysterious tower, he’s taken hostage by Rapunzel (voice of MANDY MOORE), a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Locked away from everything by her overbearing Mother Gothel, Rapunzel's tower walls become her world - a canvas where she can create whatever she wanted.

Talented Conceptual Artist, Claire Keane, offers:

"Rapunzel's walls are really a reflection of what she could see from her window as well as what she was thinking about. There was a definite plan with specific choices made in choosing the colors of Rapunzel's walls. It was important to create how Rapunzel would create, not how I would create, so I had to try a variety of different things that would express her world."

"I've always been inspired by other artists whose works stands out to me for different reasons. Marc Chagall inspires me for his use of color, the great illustrator Charlie Harper inspires me for how to organize objects, and my Dad (Legendary Disney artist, Glen Keane) who always pushes me to really think about what I am creating and why."

"Ideas can come from real life – learn to see the beauty in the tiniest things. Rapunzel's life changed within a single day and what happens to us on a daily basis is important and is part of what shapes us overall."

Claire's Keane incite and talent are displayed in this time lapse video clip featuring her painting of a Tangled-themed mural in the Disney offices.
