The similarities between the animated flick and the pandemic are hair-raising.
Fans are saying Disney may have eerily predicted the coronavirus outbreak as they point out hair-raising similarities between "Tangled" and the current pandemic lockdown.
The 2010 animated movie was a retelling of the classic "Rapunzel" story, where a young princess with magical hair is locked away in her castle for days on end, completely cut off from the outside world.
And the outside world just happened to be a kingdom called Corona.
Wait a minute here...In tangled, Rapunzel is trapped in a tower (quarantine) and hidden from the kingdom named Corona... Did anybody else realize this? #Disney #DisTwitter #DisneyPlus pic.twitter.com/TPmY1kPSjt— Jared Talbot (@JaredTalbot_) March 14, 2020
Social media blew up revealing the eerie connection between the plot line and the measures people are taking through self-isolation and social distancing to prevent the spread of the disease, which has already claimed over 10,000 deaths globally.
"When you realized Rapunzel was quarantined for 16 years and the fictional kingdom where she was born is called 'Corona' -- BITCHH WE LIVING IN A TANGLED WORLD," wrote one gobsmacked follower.
Another shocked Twitter user posted, "OMG WTF IN TANGLED RAPUNZEL LIVES IN SELF ISOLATION IN THE FICTITIOUS GERMAN CITY OF F--KING CORONA."

Corona is an island kingdom and the birthplace of Rapunzel in Disney's 2010 animated feature film, Tangled.— Jon Wensley (@jonwensley) March 20, 2020
After a significant period of isolation it is also where Rapunzal met her future husband/prince.
