“The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion,” said Gary Marsh, President and Cco of Disney Channels Worldwide. “And we are fortunate to have several of the creative talent from that movie on board with this new production. With the addition of Chris Sonnenburg and Shane Prigmore as executive producers, we have the perfect team in place to create a series worthy of the original film.”
The series will see Mandy Moore and Zachary Levy reprising their roles from the film as Rapunzel and Eugene Fitzherbert (a.k.a. Flynn Rider), and will also feature music from composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.
