Interest in 2010 movie ‘Tangled’ surges amid coronavirus pandemic

Disney’s 2010 movie “Tangled” is seeing a resurgence during the coronavirus pandemic.

Google reported on Friday that “what is the name of the kingdom in ‘Tangled'” has been a top search over the last day.

The name of the kingdom is Corona. In the movie, which stars the voices of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, the animated Rapunzel, who is the princess of Corona, lived her whole life in a tower before the events of the movie begin.

Social media users have been highlighting the coincidence of the names this week.

USA Today suggested Americans who are practicing social distancing by remaining inside their houses model their isolation on Rapunzel.

Glenn Slater, who wrote lyrics for the movie, joked in a tweet that he did not use his apparent foreknowledge that “corona” would lead to social disruption to sell any stocks. He also suggested a few more activities for people to try in self-isolation.
