P.S. boy did does she not seem like Rapunzel without you know her voice - Mandy’s voice
someone guessed it’s Natalie Portman’s voice? that sounds possible
honestly I don’t think it’s obvious whose voice it is I hope Jin Kim says who
P.P.S. I mean OMG OMG OMG OMG
HOW MUCH MORE MIND BLOWINGLY AWESOME DOES THIS GET
WE PRAYED FOR MORE TANGLED BEHIND THE SCENES, MAYBE EVEN FROM BEFORE THEY CONVERTED IT TO CGI
AND OUR PRAYERS WERE HEARD
OMG OMG OMG OMG
I don’t know how to begin to express how exciting this is
I’m sorry, but I think these are just pencil tests from when the movie was further along.
I’m pretty sure there was always the intention of having it be in CG (except in the very early Rapunzel: Unbraided stages with “Vince” and “Claire”).
I know that, during conceptualization of a CG movie, animators & character designers sometimes do pencil tests as a way to figure out how the characters move, and to figure out how their facial expressions and designs are working out. You see, you gotta know traditional animation in order to do CG animation. CG animators work out a lot of things in 2D before moving to 3D, in order to make the 3D/CG look more organic.
