I am going to put this on Disney insider(full response on it) so I can get your opinions, it was really weird how it happend..Rupunzel and Flyn at a coronation than other princess on the Disney Company (Belle etc...)
Officially, they're not related and Rapunzel and Eugene are just an Easter Egg.
Unofficially, it's a headcanon that Rapunzel is a cousin to the sisters, or at the very least that the kingdoms are close enough that Rapunzel and Eugene's attendance at Elsa's coronation is appropriate, if not expected.
Here on the site, we've determined that it was indeed Rapunzel and Eugene at Elsa's coronation, but that they were unable to stay for the duration of the party.
I have no problem with putting together two films, if it can be done without offending continuity. Yes, Rapunzel's and Elsa's kingdoms could be near enough to interact. And there's nothing to suggest they live in different eras. I draw the line at cousins, though; there's absolutely no reason for such a leap. Why not say Rapunzel is Hans's cousin instead? It makes as much sense.
However, as sage reminded us, it's simply what is known as an Easter Egg, a little hidden joke that made the animators laugh.
There's a Dumbo toy in The Great Mouse Detective, but no one speculates that Dumbo takes place in 1897 London. Belle, Pumbaa, and Carpet appear in Hunchback, but none of them lived in Paris in the 15th century.
So, an Easter Egg is just an Easter Egg, not continuity.
Sorry if I went on and on; I'm a continuity freak.
Wow! Really when I look at youtube videos I think that they aren't true or not making sense to me. Your opinions were understanding! Never knew they were cousins. Really, it was weird of me to watch Frozen over and over again.
I'll watch Dumbo in the morning, since I fell asleep really early. (Now I'm wide awake but I'm hoping to pass out soon...)
I think the main reason so many believe they are cousins is because of the mothers looking so similar. But Linda is right, it would make just as much sense for Rapunzel to be Hans' cousin (though personally I say no way until I see proof; I can't have my little Punzie be cousins with him!)
Um, I wasn't suggesting that Dumbo had any relation to The Great Muse Detective; far from it. I was only pointing out that the presence of an Easter Egg has nothing to do with continuity. (Yes, Dumbo clearly takes place in America, with a map to prove it) In fact, Easter Eggs are specifically created to flaunt continuity. They're like the anti-continuity movement. Case in point: the inclusion of Mickey, Donald, and Goofy in The Little Mermaid.
I found that while Frozen officially takes place in 1840s Norway, the Mother Gothel wiki page says Tangled takes place in the 1780s. :x so while Rapunzel could be theoretically related to Elsa and Anna, it wouldn't have been Eugene and Rapunzel at Elsa's coronation.
