Flynn Rider consistently rates highly on the list of fan favourites in the animated film Tangled, one of Disney’s most cherished productions to this day. This criminal, also known as Eugene Fitzherbert, exudes tremendous confidence in his skills and appearance and frequently tries to charm his way out of awkward circumstances. Despite his haughtiness, Eugene is adored for his amusing antics and kind nature, which are especially evident when it comes to Rapunzel.
Other than the fact that Eugene is an orphan and that he has a reason for using a different identity, not much about him is revealed in the film. This is logical given that Eugene is not the main character of the plot, but one specific aspect has always aroused viewers’ interest: Eugene’s age.
What is Eugene Fitzherbert’s age in Tangled?
Although Eugene’s age is not explicitly stated in the film, it is reasonable to presume that he is older than Rapunzel based on his demeanour and general outlook. Eugene’s age was brought up by the Tangled writers on a few occasions after the film’s release, and the general consensus seemed to be that he is in his twenties, with the number 22 being mentioned twice. But that was not where the narrative would stop.
Eugene is revealed to be the son of King Edmund in the season two finale of Tangled: The Series, an animated television series that takes place after the events of the movie. This information alters more than just the character’s past. Eugene is proven to be 25 years old in that episode with the addition of this new information, changing to 26 in the third and concluding season of the show. Now all we have to do is the math.
Eugene must have been 23 or 24 years old in the film because the animated series takes set two or three years after Tangled’s events. This implies that Eugene will be at least 26 years old when Rapunzel and Eugene finally get married in Tangled Ever After.
Tangled and Tangled: The Series are both streamable on Disney Plus if you want to relive Eugene and Rapunzel’s tale.
