Tangled Follow-Up Series, Movie Get March Premieres on Disney Channel

It’s official: Rapunzel has less than two months to grow her hair back out.

Disney Channel on Tuesday announced that Tangled: The Series will kick off Friday, March 24 (7:30/6:30c), following the premiere of the original movie Tangled Before Ever After on Friday, March 10 (8/7c).

Before Ever After is set after the events of the original 2010 Tangled film, but before the 2012 short Tangled Ever After. (And you thought the Marvel Universe was complicated!) Here’s the TV movie’s official synopsis:

Rapunzel grapples with both the new responsibilities of being princess and the overprotective ways of her father. While she whole heartedly loves Eugene, Rapunzel does not share his immediate desire to get married and settle down within the castle walls. Determined to live life on her own terms, she and Cassandra embark on a secret adventure where they encounter mystical rocks that magically cause Rapunzel’s long blonde hair to grow back. Impossible to break and difficult to hide, Rapunzel must learn to embrace her hair and all that it represents.

In addition to Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi — reprising the roles of Rapunzel and Eugene, respectively — keep your ears open for Broadway’s Eden Espinosa as a “tough-as-nails lady-in-waiting” named Cassandra, Modern Family‘s Julie Bowen as Queen Arianna, and Sleepy Hollow‘s Clancy Brown as King Frederic.

Other familiar guest voices in the series include Jeffrey Tambor (Transparent), Sean Hayes (Will & Grace), Jeremy Jordan (Supergirl), Jonathan Banks (Better Call Saul), Peter MacNicol (Ally McBeal) and Laura Benanti (Nashville).

    Well, I guess she loses her hair again in this new story because it’s short again in “Tangled Ever After”.

    With the Supergirl article right above this, do Melissa Benoist and Chris Wood not look just like the human versions of Rapunzel and Flynn? He’s got the chin and the hair (and the smolder), she’s got the smile and the hair – they could easily do a live-action version!

    Very excited for more Tangled stories, especially with Zach Levi and Mandy Moore. Their chemistry was golden (pun intended).
