Disney Plans A “Tangled” Animated Series

Disney has announced that a new Disney Channel animated series is in the works based on their popular 2010 animated feature “Tangled” (itself based on the story of Rapunzel).

Most of the major cast from the original film will reprise their roles for the series including Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Flynn), and will be joined by a new handmaiden character named Cassandra who serves as Rapunzel’s confidant.

The series take place between the events of the feature film and the 2012 short film “Tangled Ever After”. Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater will compose new songs for the series which is slated to debut on the Disney Channel in 2017.
