Disney’s unorthodox retelling of the Rapunzel story in Tangled was validated when the movie became a huge hit.
Now, the original Rapunzel and Flynn (now Eugene) from the film – Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi – are voicing the characters in Disney Channel’s Tangled: The Series.
After being locked up in that tower for so long, Rapunzel has to reacquaint herself with the kingdom of Corona. Fortunately, she has the support of Eugene, her chameleon sidekick, the dutiful no-nonsense horse, Pascal and the Snuggly Duck Pub Thugs.
Tangled: The Series premieres on Friday, March 24th (7:30/6:30C).
