This coming Friday, March 10 at 8 PM ET, the Disney Channel will debut a feature length special for Tangled, titled Tangled Before Ever After. The TV movie will see stars Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene/Flynn Ryder, and is notable for using a 2D animation as opposed to CG. Familiar characters such as the loyal chameleon Pascal, the acerbic horse Maximus, and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs will be featured, but they will be joined by the new character Cassandra, who becomes Rapunzel’s confidante.
As a way of teasing fans, Disney has decided to release a clip featuring the first 5 minutes of the TV movie, which you can view below:
Tangled Before Ever After’s story is set in between the events of the original Tangled film and the Tangled Ever After short film, with Rapunzel finally getting to know her parents, her kingdom, and its people. After realizing how big of a responsibility she has, she decided to put it on hold for a bit in order to go on another adventure, much to the dismay of the king. Rapunzel’s plans get a little bit complicated when her long blonde hair suddenly grows back.
