Tangled TV series in development for Disney Channel

Disney Channel
Disney Channel is developing an animated series based on the 2010 movie "Tangled," the network announced Wednesday.

Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider/Eugene Fitzherbert in the series, which will be exec-produced by Chris Sonnenburg ("Enchanted") and Shane Prigmore ("How to Trian Your Dragon"). Also returning: Oscar-winning composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.

The series is set to premiere in 2017 and will take place between the events of the "Tangled" and its short sequel, "Tangled Ever After."

Here's how described the new show:

"The animated series finds Rapunzel acquainting herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona, as she realizes there is so much left to learn before she can accept her royal destiny. When Rapunzel puts her crown and impending marriage on hold to seek out epic adventures, she is joined by 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."
