Disney has announced that a new animated series based on their popular animated film Tangled will debut on the Disney Channel in 2017! Check out the first promo image in the gallery below!
Most of the major voice and musical talent from the 2010 hit will return, including Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (nee Eugene), as well as new songs from Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Clare Keane, daughter of Disney Legend Glen Keane (who served as an animation supervisor on Tangled), consulted on the series.
Also making the leap to the small screen are fan-favorite characters like Rapunzel’s chameleon sidekick Pascal, the uppity horse Maximus, the thugs from the Snuggly Duckling Pub and a brand new character: Cassandra, described as “a tough-as-nails handmaiden, who becomes Rapunzel’s confidant.”
The series is set to take place in between events of the feature film and the 2012 short film Tangled Ever After. Apparently there were a lot of adventures that Rapunzel and Eugene got into in the time in-between. We don’t have any details on what the animation style will be, but based on the promotional artwork, Tangled fans will be very, very happy.
