Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure (known as Tangled: The Series during its first season) is an American animated television series developed by Chris Sonnenburg and Shane Prigmore, and produced by Disney Television Animation. It premiered on Disney Channel as a Disney Channel Original Movie titled Tangled: Before Ever After on March 10, 2017. Its regular episodes premiered on March 24, 2017. The series is based on the 2010 film Tangled and features the returning voices of Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi, alongside Eden Espinosa, Clancy Brown, Julie Bowen, James Monroe Iglehart, Jeff Ross, Paul F. Tompkins, and Jeremy Jordan.

In February 2017, ahead of the series premiere, the series was renewed for a second season, which premiered on June 24, 2018. In May 2018, ahead of the premiere of the series' second season, it was announced that the series had been renewed for a third and final season, which premiered on October 7, 2019,[1][2] and concluded on March 1, 2020.[3][4]

Plot

Six months after escaping Mother Gothel and reuniting with her birth parents, King Frederic and Queen Arianna of Corona, Princess Rapunzel is unable to properly adjust due to her father's constant protection. When she and her handmaiden Cassandra sneak out of the castle, they come upon some magical black rock spikes that magically restores Rapunzel's long blonde hair as they, Eugene Fitzherbert, Pascal the chameleon, Maximus the horse uncover the mystery of her hair's return and its connection to the black rocks growing around Corona. Eventually, Rapunzel learns that Sundrop Flower's power resides in her with the black rocks directing her to the Dark Kingdom.

The second season centers around Rapunzel's group traveling to the Dark Kingdom while accompanied by Lance, Hook Foot, and Shorty and joined by the mysterious sword-wielding Adira of the Dark Kingdom. The group soon learn that the rocks are created by the Sundrop's counterpart: The Moonstone Opal. During the journey, Rapunzel learns the origins of the Sundrop and Moonstone as two halves of an ancient power seeking to be rejoined while sought by a demon called Zhan Tiri, whose evil is mentioned in Corona's legends. Zhan Tiri returns to the physical world as a spirit and manipulates Cassandra into taking the Moonstone and turn on Rapunzel, setting up the third season as Rapunzel copes with Cassandra's betrayal while forced to become acting queen of Corona.

Characters

  • Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) is the long-lost Princess of Corona who adjusts to her new life after escaping her captor, Gothel.
  • Eugene (Zachary Levi), formerly Flynn Rider, is a reformed thief. Eugene marries Rapunzel and finds his place in Corona as a royal guard instructor and later sets off with Rapunzel on her adventure.
  • Cassandra (Eden Espinosa) is the adopted daughter of the Captain of the Guards. She is Rapunzel's best friend and lady-in-waiting until she learns that her birth mother is the late Gothel herself. She is manipulated by the evil demon Zhan Tiri to turn on Rapunzel by becoming the host of the all-powerful Moonstone before reforming at the end of season 3.
  • Pascal and Maximus (Dee Bradley Baker)
    • Pascal is Rapunzel's pet chameleon. His backstory is revealed in Episode 11 "Pascal's Story".
    • Maximus is a white stallion said to have the nose of a bloodhound. He is originally owned by the Captain of the Guard and later by Eugene.
  • King Frederic (Clancy Brown) is the King of Corona and Rapunzel's overprotective yet loving father.
  • Queen Arianna (Julie Bowen) is the Queen of Corona and Princess Rapunzel's birth mother.
  • Lance Strongbow (James Monroe Iglehart)[1] is Eugene's childhood best friend and former partner-in-crime from his thieving days. He adopts Kiera and Catalina at the end of "Plus Est En Vous".
  • Hook Foot (Jeff Ross)[5] is the hook-footed younger brother of Hook Hand. He accompanies Rapunzel on her adventure in Season 2 until "The Brothers Hook" to go on a world tour with his brother.
  • Shorty (Paul F. Tompkins)[1] is a crazy thug who joins Rapunzel and Eugene on their adventures in Season 2.
  • Varian (Jeremy Jordan)[1] is a clumsy but smart, young alchemist who uses his skills to help others. Later on in the series he becomes an antagonist but reforms in the Season 3 premiere episode "Rapunzel's Return". At the end of "Plus Est En Vous", he becomes the Royal Engineer and is finally able to give Corona hot water which is something that he wanted to do to in the first episode of season one.
  • Zhan Tiri (Jennifer Veal) is an ancient and powerful demon sorceress from another reality who serves as the series' main antagonist. She personally appears in a child-like form to manipulate Cassandra in season 3 after acting through her minions in the first two seasons. She is vanquished in the season 3 finale.
