Tangled TV series to make Disney Channel debut in 2017

Disney is developing a TV series based on its 2010 animated movie Tangled.

The Tangled TV series will debut on Disney Channel in 2017.

Variety reports that a series was given the green light following the success of Disney Channel’s 2012 short film, Tangled Ever After, which brought in five million viewers.

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will once again voice Rapunzel and Eugene, while the series will aslo welcome back Tangled’s composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.

The series is being developed by exec producer Chris Sonnenburg, who will also serve as supervising director, and Shane Prigmore, who is co-exec producer and creator director.

“The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion," said Gary Marsh, president and CCO of Disney Channels Worldwide.

"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.”

The Tangled TV series is set between the events of the original film and the start of Tangled Ever After.

The series follows Rapunzel as she realises there is more she needs to learn before she can truly accept her royal destiny, causing her to put her crown and put her marriage on hold while she seeks out adventures.
