HOLLYWOOD, CA (Hollywood Daily Star) 2017/3/10 – “Songs and adventure and everything in between,” says Tangled Before Ever After star Mandy Moore. “I feel you get to know mom and dad a whole lot better. Because family is very important. I’m not sure how much we can reveal though”
In Tangled Before Ever After, Mandy Moore is Rapunzel and Zachary Levi is Eugene. The story is set in the time between the Walt Disney feature Tangled and its short film Tangled Ever After.
Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Characters from the feature film accompany Rapunzel on her journey, including her partner in life Eugene, her loyal chameleon sidekick Pascal, no-nonsense and dutiful horse Maximus, and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs.
Eden Espinosa is series newcomer Cassandra, a tough lady who becomes Rapunzel’s friend and confidante.
While she 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 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.
Tangled print and e-book titles include an original middle grade series by Leila Howland, inspired by the series from Disney Publishing. Disney Consumer Products and Interactive Media will debut new playsets, dolls, role-play, apparel and accessories later this fall at Disney Store and everywhere. The singles Wind in My Hair performed by Mandy Moore and Life After Happily Ever After performed by Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi and Clancy Brown, released on February 10th and today, respectively, from Walt Disney Records. A DVD of the TV movie and four animated shorts releases April 11th by Disney Studios.
