The new show will also feature original new songs from Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater and Mandy Moore will once again voice the character Rapunzel and ZacharyLevi will take on the part of Flynn Rider. You can see the art from the series above.
Set between the events of the feature film and the start of the 2012 short film Tangled Ever After, the 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.
Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer at Disney Channels Worldwide said this in a statement:
“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.”
