The World According to Flynn Rider

January 12, 2015 ,

It’s no secret, at TMSM we are big fans of the film Tangled.  The Oh My Disney blog put out this story about the world according to one of our favorite character, Flynn Rider.

Our favorite jovial thief turned dreamy hero has a singular way of looking at the world. He sees it as his to explore, and lives every day to its fullest. We could get behind this outlook. Without all the stealing and law-breaking, it’s a pretty sunny way to go through life. Flynn never lets an opportunity pass him by, and sees things a bit differently than the rest of us. Allow us to explain:



To us, very secure buildings containing things that we shouldn’t touch. To Flynn, low-security garage sales, where you don’t actually have to pay because the owners are just giving things away for free.



To us, majestic steeds and trusty friends. To Flynn, mortal enemies with whom you form an uneasy detente.



To us, receptacles for smell, and other scientific things that we don’t really know the terms for. To Flynn, the single most important facial feature.

Towers With No Door


To us, off limits. To Flynn, a mere climb away from a great hiding spot.



To us, intimidating, scary, bad guys with whom we don’t want to mess. For Flynn, the butts of so many potential jokes–verbal and practical–that he can’t even think straight for want of carrying them out.



To us, color-changing amphibians that are cute and have ‘80s songs written about then. To Flynn, frogs.



To us, a meaningful way to express our emotions with impact (especially in the car and shower). To Flynn, something to never, ever do (expect when threatened by men with knives).

Frying Pans


To us, a method of cooking eggs. To Flynn, a dangerous, yet intriguing, new type of weapon.



For us, societal identifiers. For Flynn, interchangable not only for himself, but for everyone he comes across, according to his memory/whim.



To us, a wonderful character that we really love who is awesome, relatable, and cute. To Flynn, at first an exasperating female stopping him from getting a payday, but later his true love.

Aww. What do you love about the way Flynn Rider sees the world? Tell us in the comments!
