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).
Moore and Levi talk about the series in a new video after the break.
Ashley Judd, Richard Kind and Jeffrey Tambor lead a host of additions to Disney Channel’s Tangled: Before Ever After.
Judd will play Rapunzel’s mother, Queen Arianna, while Tambor will reprise his film role, Big Nose, and Kind will portray Uncle Morty..
Also joining the cast are: Eden Espinoza as Rapunzel’s handmaiden and confidant, Cassandra; Jeff Ross, as Hook Hand’s brother, Hook Foot, Paul F Tompkins – returning to the role of Shorty, and M.C. Gaines, back from the movie as Captain of the Guards – among others.

The story of Rapunzel – considerably changed to make it appealing to a wide demographic – is the subject of Tangled, the latest CG/animated feature from Disney. Basically, it keeps the girl, the hair and the tower and changes most everything else. It is a bright, energetic, cheerful film that entertains without doing much else.
