And should she ever feel lost, the lanterns will help her find her way back home. He went off the deep end. For comparison's sake, that's actually shorter than the runtime of the new Avengers: Endgame movie. Elena's predecessor had a special about mermaids called that featured mermaid princesses who made a few additional guest appearances in future episodes, but Song of the Sirenas was far from a rehash of The Floating Palace. The attempt succeeds so they can go confront Varian on their own, and in the worst timing possible, Varian himself shows up at her doorstep with a sickly purple mist and his mutated pet raccoon, and takes out a number of the Royal Guard, rendering the whole escape meaningless. This brings up the idea that they are family but they don't yet have a strong bond.
The concept is inspired by the for the third wave of Jewel Riders dolls that never got produced due to the show's untimely cancellation after the second season. At his home in Old Corona, Varian has Arianna tied up and explains that she is only being used as leverage to have Rapunzel come to her rescue, hoping to use her hair to free his father from the amber, but not caring for the well-being of the kingdom and its people. My thoughts were: weird, she's feeling weak, guess it's working; yay, freeing a person and reuniting a son with his dad, go Raps and Varian! From his perspective, the world showed no concern for him, and as such, is owed none by him. He commits high treason by attacking Corona and kidnapping the Queen, throws caution to the wind and puts Rapunzel's life in danger when trying to use her hair to free his father, and even attempts to crush both Cassandra and the Queen to death with his giant automaton in order to make Rapunzel suffer. Overall I think much of this could have been fixed if someone, probably his dad or another adult, believed in him and taught him safety procedures. First off, I am a fan of Varian as well. Cassandra's worst fear, which was foreshadowed in the , finally came true, forcing her to take control of her life her life and face her father, the Captain of the Guard.
Varian then demands that Rapunzel use her hair as a tip of a drill he was using to free his father from the amber or else he will keep harming her family, even going as far as pouring one of his chemicals on a black rock next to the Queen that will encase her in the same amber. But does Varian, as another of their supposed friends get any? I started this blog 100 days ago, and I've managed to write a new post in it every day since then. So yeah, not a strong enough plot hole to ruin the otherwise great writing of these latter episodes, but still something that should have been addressed. Some of the topics were easier to come up with than others. I'll still do other episode and movie reviews for my other blogs but those are going to take a backseat here on A Look at Disney for a while. To start, I really have to hand it to the writers of this show for incorporating so … Being a princess can mean to different people.
Even though he is a reformed thief, which should come with plenty of challenges, he was the only character who did not have any noticeable growth or have to prove himself in Secret of the Sun Drop as well as most of the series. From the beautiful pink architecture of El… The rest of the second season of the Tangled series over the past six weeks and concluded today with the season finale special,. That was when he would found it in the form of the that would save his wife and their unborn daughter. I absolutely loved Lady Caine's motive for revenge in Before Ever After, where the writers followed the implications of what we saw in the movie, like, say, what produced a kingdom in which a thief can be executed without so much as a trial? Then goes to control Rapunzel in the same way Gothel did. He wanted to believe it, but at the time he was desperate to save his family. Rapunzel, as their friend, gets all of their sympathy. The whole of what I saw was, as you said, cute and sweet but not completely captivating.
Deducing that Varian must've rebuilt it to attack them, the three retaliated and eventually defeated it by jamming its timing cylinder So, everything has kinda gone up in smoke and things only get worse, when Rapunzel confronts her father and this is where Frederic goes to an extreme of protecting his daughter as he has locked up in her room. He wanted to believe it, but at the time he was desperate to save his family. Way too much stuff going on with zero answers. In some ways, it seems as though Cassandra needed to reach her lowest point in order to find her own strength and prove herself. One interesting item is that Rapunzel does turn 19 in this episode, which puts it about one year after the events in Tangled. The hour-long special was a terrific payoff for a fairly inconsistent season.
While you're here, feel free to follow , subscribe to , and check out. I'm very excited to bring you all the latest princess news and reviews for another hundred posts! To that end, the writers of this show have done an excellent job in so far as making me hate what they did to Varian. Even though I stopped updating every day, I've still had at least one new topic to write about each week. But the fog scene and kidnapping the queen and just being an all-around savage. To make matters worse, as he goes off to the clink, what does the one person who holds the key in some way, shape, or form to rescuing his father do? With this assurance, Rapunzel and Frederic decides to formulate a plan to save their kingdom.
Overall the writers did a pretty good job of having him turn from an eager but short-sighted kid to a genuinely threatening villain. Now realizing that he is wrong about the rocks being a threat to Corona, and that they are pointing her to somewhere outside of the kingdom, Frederic encourages Rapunzel to listen to her heart and follow the new path to her destiny. So much of the series up to this point was filler. Wonder if she's some kind of Chosen One from the Moondrop Flower if there's actually one , the same way Rapunzel is for the Sundrop one? Rapunzel is having a hard time celebrating her birthday as she is still reeling from events in her recent past that have left her rather shaken and well, that understandable as the episode right before this one was The Alchemist Returns, where Varian someone Rapunzel once considered a friend had betrayed her and used her shaken state and guilt to take advantage of her. Instead we got tons of new information without clarity. By this point, Varian announces his presence in Corona, informing them of Fredric's lies and the kingdom's impending destruction from the growing black rocks. This was the reason why he kept constant eyes on her, but these actions were not as a king, but as a father.
Unfortunately, while they were doing this, Varian had snuck into the castle and kidnapped Arianna. It's the toughest fight Rapunzel's friends have been in so far, and they have to give their all. He would eventually found out that the automatons can also be defeated by having them skewered on the black rocks, and instructs everybody to use this tactic. His help, a nobody from nowhere. Noblesse oblige literally obligates the nobility to do right by their subjects, for their rule is predicated upon the idea that without them, their subjects could not get along. He caused the problems with the rocks in the first place by taking the flower even though he was warned of how dangerous it was. The season finale boasts two fantastic new songs, one of which I would love to see become the new theme song, as the current one could use some improvement.
