Disney Channel has made an early commitment to a second season of the animated show Tangled: The Series ahead of the debut of the first season. A production of Disney Television Animation, the series is based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ feature film Tangled.
Tangled: The Series reunites Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, who reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene (formerly known as Flynn Rider), respectively, as well as the music team of Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. The story takes place between the events of the 2010 feature film and the start of the 2012 short film, Tangled Ever After. With a vibrant animation style, the series follows Rapunzel on her adventures as she acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom of Corona and its people.
A line of role-play products, dolls and playsets inspired by Tangled: The Series will debut at the North American International Toy Fair this weekend, and will be available later this fall, including new apparel and accessories. Disney Publishing will debut print and e-book titles including an original middle grade series by Leila Howland. Walt Disney Records recently released the single “Wind in My Hair” performed by Mandy Moore and will debut “Life After Happily Ever After,” performed by Moore, Zachary Levi and Clancy Brown, on March 10. A DVD of the TV movie Tangled Before Ever After and four animated shorts will be released by Walt Disney Studios on April 11.
