Announcing the early renewal, Disney Channels Worldwide President and Chief Creative Officer Gary Marsh said, “Tangled is my all-time favorite Disney animated film! And with the blessing of the filmmakers, executive producer Chris Sonnenburg has crafted a terrific new series that embraces the rich characters, the brilliant storytelling and the memorable music of the original. Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi have effortlessly reprised their roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, and the legendary songwriters Alan Menken and Glenn Slater have graced the series with a host of memorable songs. This promises to be an absolute treat for kids and families around the world.”
The Plot: Tangled: The Series is set between the stories told in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ acclaimed film Tangled and its short film Tangled Ever After. This visually vibrant animated adventure/comedy series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity lead her to realize that there is so much more she needs to learn about the world and herself before she can assume her role as Princess of Corona. Much to the dismay of the king, she boldly postpones her duty as princess to seek out adventure.
Beloved characters from the feature film accompany Rapunzel on her journey, including her partner in life Eugene (FKA Flynn Rider); her loyal chameleon sidekick, Pascal; no-nonsense and dutiful horse, Maximus; and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs. The series will introduce Cassandra, a tough-as-nails lady-in-waiting, who becomes Rapunzel’s good friend and confidante.
