“Tangled Before Ever After” is set between the events of the feature film and the start of the 2012 short film, “Tangled Ever After.” Premiering in 2017 on Disney Channels around the world, the series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona.
Produced by Disney Television Animation, “Tangled Before Ever After” was developed by animation veterans Chris Sonnenburg (Disney’s “Enchanted”) and Shane Prigmore (“The Lego Movie”). Sonnenburg serves as executive producer and supervising director; Benjamin Balistreri (“How to Train Your Dragon”) is supervising producer; Jase Ricci (Disney XD’s “Penn Zero: Part-Time Hero”) is story editor; and Alan Bodner (“The Iron Giant”) is art director. The series will feature music by Academy Award-winning Disney Legend Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater. Emmy Award-winning Kevin Kliesch (“Tangled Ever After”) will serve as score composer. Celebrated artist Claire Keane (“Frozen,” “Tangled”), daughter of Disney Legend Glen Keane, who was animation supervisor on the feature film, is contributing design work and consulting on the series.
