New Adventures – Disney’s Tangled is Getting a TV Show

Ever the adventurer, Disney’s Rapunzel was never a character who could sit still for long, and now the excitable princess is embarking on her first big outing since 2012. The Tangled star will explore the shiny new territory of the small screen in an animated series, due to premiere worldwide in 2017.

Set between the events of the original feature and the 2012 short, Tangled Ever After, the TV show will feature the vocal talents of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, reprising their leading roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider/Eugene. And as if that wasn’t exciting enough, there will also be brand new songs from Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. The promo artwork that has already been released (right) looks gorgeous, and you can check out the official synopsis below:

“[T]he animated series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. As she realizes there is so much more she needs to learn before she can truly accept her royal destiny, she boldly puts her crown and impending marriage on hold to seek out epic adventures, much to the dismay of the king, who, after missing out on Rapunzel’s youth, must accept that his daughter is now an independent young woman.

Accompanying Rapunzel on her journey will be Eugene; the plucky chameleon sidekick Pascal; the no-nonsense horse Maximus; the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs; and newcomer Cassandra, a tough-as-nails handmaiden who becomes Rapunzel’s confidant.”

Produced by Disney Television Animation and developed by Chris Sonnenburg (Enchanted) and Shane Prigmore (The Lego Movie), the series will air on the Disney Channel. Said Gary Marsh, President and Chief Creative Officer at Disney Channels Worldwide:

“The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion. And we are fortunate to have several of the creative talent from that movie on board with this new production. With the addition of Chris and Shane as executive producers, we have the perfect team in place to create a series worthy of the original film.”

Standing here, it’s all so clear she’s where she’s meant to be, but we’re just wonderin’ and wonderin’ and wonderin’ and wonderin’ – when will the show begin?
