DISNEY fans have noticed a spooky coincidence between the film Tangled and the coronavirus pandemic. In the 2010 animated movie, Rapunzel is kidnapped by a wicked enchantress named Gothel and forced to live out her days locked inside a tower. 4 In the 2010 movie Tangled, Rapunzel is locked away from the outside world in a tower Credit: Alamy 4 Fans have also noticed that she lives in the Kingdom of Corona Credit: Disney Many have drawn comparisons between Rapunzel's sheltered existence to the self-isolating and social distancing associated with coronavirus but here's the weird bit. The name of the kingdom where the story takes place is called Corona. The kingdom also shares the same name as the viral disease in the video game adaptation Kingdom Hearts.
The bizarre coincidence was spotted by a Facebook user, who shared a text conversation they had with a friend who pointed out that Rapunzel is "quarantined" in a town called Corona. 4 The coincidence was spotted by a Facebook user who shared it online Credit: Facebook The post has since received more than 800 shares with many admitting they had been left "mind blown" at the realisation.
