I have been blasting the soundtrack ever since the news broke. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?! Disney Channel has announced an animated television show covering the extended adventures of the characters from their popular animated feature, Tangled. But wait it gets even better: Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will be reprising their roles in the new series as our favorite duo, Rapunzel and Flynn Rider. We can expect to see the animation series to premier in 2017 (WHY SO LONG?!). Besides the stars coming back, we also will see reunited creative team, Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.
The last little bit of Tangled we saw was the 2012 short film, Tangled Ever After. This new animated series will take place as Rapunzel starts to reconnect with her parents, kingdom, and the people of Corona. Realizing it might be a little more complicated then she imagined, she pushes the pause button on her crown and impending marriage to explore her new open freedom. We will find her on amazing adventures with Flynn, Pascal, Maximus, the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs, and a new comer Cassandra. Cassandra is a handmaiden who becomes Rapunzel’s confidant. Every girl needs a good, best friend.
I can’t wait to see what other tidbits we get in the next two years. AGAIN WHY SO LONG?!?!
