Differences Between the Movie and the Musical

  • In the movie, Maximus leaves Flynn, Rapunzel, and Pascal on the boat before they sing "I See the Light". In the musical, he boards on the boat as the boat is larger than in the movie.
  • In the movie, Rapunzel doesn't use her isolated tower in the end. In the musical, Rapunzel, Flynn, Pascal, and Maximus make use of the tower.
  • There are eleven additional numbers (seventeen if reprises (six) were counted) added to the musical.
