Fans are convinced Disney predicted coronavirus with this Tangled link (Picture: Rex/Disney) Disney may have weirdly predicted that the world was going to be struck down by coronavirus and everyone would need to self-isolate. Y'know how The Simpsons is eerily spot on with its predictions that play out onscreen, well, turns out Disney knew a thing or two about putting yourself in quarantine when anything called Corona is involved. Cast your minds back to 2010 when Disney dropped Tangled, a new and improved version of Rapunzel that we all instantly fell in love with, if not purely because of Rapunzel's pet chameleon Pascal. Rapunzel is locked away in isolation in a tower from the village of… corona (Picture: Rex) If you're not quite familiar with the story, Rapunzel has magic hair that stops her mumma from aging, so Mother Gothel decides to lock Rapunzel away in a tower to keep herself looking young. But, in some weird coincidence that has truly blown our minds, the village Rapunzel is kept away from is Corona and she's locked in quarantine for days on end (until Flynn Rider rocks up, that is).
Disney fans have been making the link on Twitter and it's safe to say they're completely losing it.

That kingdom, where Rapunzel was born and raised, was called Corona, in the film - which was pointed out by Twitter user David Munday. you know how Tangled is all about Rapunzel being kept in an endless quarantine by Mother Gothel? Well, guess what the name of the kingdom is in the film pic.twitter.com/7koHH7aKFi — David Munday (@DavidMunday815) March 19, 2020 Some people jokingly pointed out that if Rapunzel can get through 18 years of solitary isolation, the British public can get through a number of months. Although people's love lives look to be on the back burner at the moment, one Twitter user used the fact that Rapunzel was isolated before meeting her future husband as some inspiration. Some people are trying to use the period of self-isolation to press on with projects now their schedules have changed, and the fact that Rapunzel also did that while she was on her own did not go unnoticed either.
