Tangled

"When the kingdom's most wanted--and most charming--bandit Flynn Rider hides out in a mysterious tower, he's taken hostage by Rapunzel, a beautiful and feisty tower-bound teen with 70 feet of magical, golden hair. Flynn's curious captor, who's looking for her ticket out of the tower where she's been locked away for years, strikes a deal with the handsome thief and the unlikely duo sets off on an action-packed escapade, complete with super-cop horse, an over-protective chameleon and a gruff gang of pub thugs." -- official synopsis

Known as Chinese Flying Lanterns, they can be seen in many parts of Southeast Asia such as these which were released at a festival in Thailand.
