Disney greenlights tv continuation of ‘Tangled’


While many of Disney’s recent critical and commercially successful animated features have come from Pixar, the animation juggernaut has proven itself still capable of making an impact with its own features, such as Big Hero 6 and Frozen. Among their recent successful ventures has been the 2010 feature Tangled, which put a new spin on the fairytale of Rapunzel. Disney revisited the world and characters it presented in a 2012 short called Tangled Ever After, and news has now emerged of a TV show revolving around the lead characters of Rapunzel and Flynn Rider that has been greenlit for a 2017 release on the Disney channel.

The show is set to air on the Disney Channel, and original voice stars Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi have been tapped to reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider respectively. Kevin Kliesch, the score producer for Tangled and the orchestrator for Tangled Ever After, will also be the score composer for the series, while Alan Menken and Glenn Slater will work together on the songs once again, following their collaboration on the feature. The series itself will be set in the time between the feature film and the short film, and Pascal the chameleon and Maximus the horse are also set to return, though no word has been released on the involvement of Frank Welker, who voiced both characters.
