This month see the premiere of “Tangled: The Series”, based on Walt Disney Animation Studios’ acclaimed feature film “Tangled”, on Disney Channel (DStv Channel 303) on Monday, 30 October 2017 at 16:00.
Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene (also known as Flynn Rider) and will also reunite Disney Legend and Academy Award-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.
I first fell in love with Mandy Moore’s voice in the movie, “A Walk To Remember”. My favourite songs of her’s from the soundtrack was “Cry”, “Only Hope” and “It’s Gonna Be Love”.
There’s just something about her voice which I find so magical. Check out the song for this series: “The Wind in my Hair”. I’d love to know what you think of it in the comments section below.
Produced by Disney Television Animation, the series was developed by animation veterans Chris Sonnenburg (Disney’s “Enchanted”) and Shane Prigmore (“The Lego Movie”).
Marsh said, “The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion. And we are fortunate to have several of the creative talent from that movie on board with this new production. With the addition of Chris and Shane as Executive Producers, we have the perfect team in place to create a series worthy of the original film.”
Set between the events of the feature film and the start of the 2012 short film, “Tangled Ever After,” the animated series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona.
Her irrepressible spirit 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.

You’re probably wondering if the series is going to be good or not…I don’t want to share what the reviews say, so I do hope that you will share your thoughts in the comments section once you’ve watched it.
