A Hero's Journey: Petrosinella vs. Tangled's Rapunzel
Transcript of A Hero's Journey: Petrosinella vs. Tangled's Rapunzel
Petrosinella realizes that she truly wants to escape from being trapped in the tower as well as escape from her being caged by the ogress. She longs to be with her prince, and decides to completely flee with him.
Refusal of the Call
The town gossip seeing Petrosinella and her prince escape out of the tower shouted and made noise which caused the ogress to wake up. With this, the ogress runs after the two lovers catching up to them. Petrosinella throws one of the gallnuts and a bulldog appears. The ogress, being very wise, throws a piece of bread.
Again she runs after them, petrosinella now throwing the 2nd gallnut bearing a lion. The ogress manages to scare the lion away. The “road of trials” persist as the chase continues.

Hero’s Ordinary World/Unusual Childhood
She was born into royal family, however, kidnapped and raised by Mother Gothel because her golden hair is with magical healing properties.
She lives kept within a hidden tower. Mother Gothel uses her tremendously long hair to go in and out of it..
She is the daughter of
, who, as a consequence of her stealing parsley from an ogress, was made to promise to give the child she would bring forth.
At the age of 7, Petrosinella was taken by the ogress. She was then trapped in a tower. The only way to get in was through a small window with the use of her tremendously long hair.
Call to Adventure
One time, when the ogress left the tower, Petrosinella looks outside her window and sees a prince. This prince felt love at first sight with Petrosinella. They talk to each other and exchange sentiments of love.
This continues for several days. And so, the prince asks if they could meet at night when the “Moon plays at hide with the stars”
Rapunzel, at 18, longs to visit the place that fills the sky with lanterns coincidentally every year on her birthday. Mother Goethel does not allow her to. And so, supposedly in order to secure birthday request, presses Mother Goethel to leave for a 3-day journey.
She meets Flynn Rider, a thief who sought to take refuge in her tower, and knocks him unconscious. Thus, through a bargain, makes Flynn Rider take her to that kingdom.
Rapunzel is initially unsure and unwilling to disobey Mother Gothel, and denies herself out of guilt towards her.
Petrosinella actually doesn’t refuse the offer to meet with the prince, rather she accepts the appointment.
Rapunzel, filled with excitement, leaves her tower for the first time.
Petrosinella and her prince, first taking the magical gallnuts that would later help to set her free, both descend to the ground of the tower.
Crossing the First Threshold
Belly of the Whale
After much self-argument and uncertainty, Rapunzel finally decides to follow her dreams and quench her longingness to see those unusual natal-day-floating lanterns, and leaves the vicinity of the tower with Flynn Rider.
Road of Trials
Rapunzel and Flynn Rider
encounter many challenges and
trials on their journey to the kingdom, because she, an incredibly valuable asset to Mother Gothel, is under her careful watch and deceitful manipulation, and he, a thief with a large bounty on his head, is continuously being chased by kingdom guards and enemies.
They battle guards, become trapped in a flooded cave, Rapunzel is deceived by Mother Gothel, and Flynn is beaten by old accomplices.
Meeting with the
During their road of trials, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider fall deeply in “true love”.
Petrosinella and the prince are deeply in love, first meeting in the tower, and make love for several nights.
Meeting with the Temptress
Rapunzel, after a play of deception by Mother Goethel, is made to believe that Flynn Rider misled and fooled her for selfish gain, and that he did not actually love her. Mother Gothel takes Rapunzel back to the tower, and makes her think that the world truly was a bad place, and that she should have listened to Mother Gothel in the first place.
Rapunzel is in an incredibly sad state.
Atonement with the Father
They put their plan into action, and with the use of the 3 magical gallnuts, the lovers try to defeat the ogress.
By throwing the third gallnut, the ogress was devoured by a wolf.
Rapunzel, in her room, is suddenly struck with epiphany through the redundant golden symbol that exists both in her memory and everywhere in the kingdom during the festival, as she realizes that she is actually the lost daughter of the royal family. By this, she also realizes that Mother Gothel had selfishly kept her to herself in order to use the restorative, healing power of her hair. She is infuriated, and she gains heightened ability to confront Mother Gothel. She stands up to Mother
Gothel and declares that she will
never help her again.
The lovers now experience rest and freedom from danger.
Rapunzel’s hair is cut off by a dying Flynn Rider in an attempt to finally keep her safe, by making her unnecessary to Mother Gothel. Thus, her hair’s restorative power dies along with her dead, trimmed hair. Mother Gothel dies, her hair is now normal, and the dying Flynn Rider is saved by one last magical tear drop from Rapunzel.
With all this, Rapunzel is finally in a
state of relief, rest, and freedom.
Rapunzel, together with Flynn, returns to the kingdom and is reunited with her parents. The kingdom celebrates in complete joy at the return of the long lost princess. Other characters who had aided Rapunzel and Flynn earlier on also received happy endings. Later on, the two marry.
Petrosinella and her prince, leisurely and quietly make their way to his kingdom, and with the consent of the King, get married.
