Favorite Original Character – 30 Day Disney Challenge: Day 9

This one is so easy compared to the others.

So, so easy.

Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert

Just pick your favorite name for him.

Apparently Disney put together a council of women to have "hot guy meetings" to come up with this lovely face.

“But wait!” you might say, “Rapunzel had a prince in her original story!  He’s not Disney original.”

Well, yes, but that was a prince along the lines of Snow White’s singing kisser (really, those are the only two things he does in the film).  He shows up, falls in love, doesn’t say much but is a nice, loyal guy.

Flynn/Eugene was completely created by the Disney peeps to replace the boring prince from the Rapunzel fairy tales.

So he wins being my favorite original character.  Here’s why:

Style definitely comes into play here.

The facial expressions have something to do with it.

I love the evolution of Flynn’s character.

He isn’t a 2-D, cookie cutter prince, but has his own story, his own goals, and grows through the movie.

He’s also the only Disney guy who actually gives up his life for his woman, which I highly admire.

But don't worry, it's a good story.

Plus, he's voiced entirely by this guy. :D

You might know him from this show.

Zachary Levi is fantastic.

While this is funny, it's not true.  McDreamy did the same thing in Enchanted.
Animated Disney character, that is.   McDreamy did the same thing in Enchanted.

Maybe he’s my because my husband looks and acts a lot like Flynn… and that Tangled was our first movie date…

Nah, that can’t have anything to do with it.

😉

Also, I’ve loved the name “Eugene” since I was about ten thanks to this guy:
