Disney Channel Orders Second Season of ‘Tangled’

Pick-Up Comes Before Series Premiere

Disney Channel has made an early commitment to a second season before the premiere of the animated “Tangled: The Series,” with Chris Sonnenburg as executive producer and supervising director. A production of Disney Television Animation, the series is based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ feature film of the same name. It will be preceded by the music-filled “Tangled Before Ever After,” a Disney Channel Original Movie, premiering Friday, March 24 at 7:30 p.m. ET on Disney Channel.

“Tangled: The Series,” which follows Rapunzel on her adventures as she acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom of Corona and its people, reunites Mandy Moore (“This Is Us”) and Zachary Levi, who reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene (formerly known as Flynn Rider), respectively, as well as the music team of Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. The story takes place between the events of the 2010 feature film and the start of the 2012 short film, “Tangled Ever After.”
