Tangled The Series logo
Tangled: The Series is an animated television series based on the 2010 film Tangled. It serves as the bridge between the film and its short, Tangled Ever After. The series debuted with an extended pilot in March 10, 2017 with the main series premiering on March 24.

Mandy Moore and Zachery Levi will reprise their respective roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider (Eugene Fitzherbert) with composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater also returning. Two more specials premiered in November 2017 and January 2018, respectively. The series is set to air 78 episodes over the course of three seasons.

Plot Edit

Set between the events of the feature film and the start of the short film, Tangled Ever After, the series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Her irrepressible nature and natural curiosity about the world drives her to the realization that there is so much more she needs to learn before she can truly accept her royal destiny. She boldly puts her crown and impending marriage on hold to seek out epic adventures, much to the dismay of the King who, after missing out on Rapunzel's youth, must accept that his daughter is now an independent young woman. Accompanying Rapunzel on her journey will be Eugene; the plucky chameleon sidekick, Pascal; the no-nonsense horse, Maximus; the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs; and newcomer Cassandra, a tough-as-nails handmaiden who becomes Rapunzel's confidant
