Disney Channel seems certain they have a hit on their hands with Tangled: The Series – the network has ordered a second season more than three weeks before the series Premieres on March 10th.
Walt Disney’s Rapunzel update, Tangled, is about to become an animated TV series with a premiere set for 2017 on Disney Channels around the world.
Mandy Moore (Rapunzel) and Zachary Levi (Eugene aka Flynn Rider) will reprise their roles in the series. Academy Award-winning composer Alan Mencken, a Disney legend, will provide new music for the show.
The series was developed by Chris Sonnenburg (Disney’s Enchanted) and Shane Prigmore (The LEGO Movie). For more, follow the jump.
Tangled is a strange animal. It wants to be a modern animated film with all of the modern trappings but it’s also Disney’s 50th Animated film, so it has to show both sides of the mouse house – it’s roots as an innovative in animation and wholesome good fun, while also showing us that Disney Animation is moving forward and competing with that “young” upstart Pixar Animation.
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.
