Disney's Tangled TV show gets a third season and a new name
The Disney Channel orders third season of Emmy nominated adventure comedy series ahead of its season two premiere
The Disney Channel's 'The Tangled' TV series is coming back for a second and a third run with a new series title. The Emmy-nominated show, which is based off the 2010 movie is confirmed to get a third season ahead of its return for a second season premiering on June 24.
The series will now be called Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure and its main stars Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will be back voicing Rapunzel and Eugene, alongside Eden Espinosa, James Monroe-Iglehart and Jeremy Jordan.
Season two is set to add the voice talents of Carol Kane, Lil Rel Howery, Yvonne Strahovski, Bruce Campbell, Britt Robertson, Timothy Dalton, Katy Mixon and Kathy Najimy. Disney shows are never complete without soulful music, so the series will feature music by Academy Award winner Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater.
The upcoming episodes will see Rapunzel venture outside the kingdom to see where the mystical black rocks lead after discovering a surprising connection to them. Accompanying Rapunzel on her journey is her partner, Eugene, her best friend and confidante, Cassandra; her loyal chameleon sidekick, Pascal; dutiful horse, Maximus and Eugene's best friend, Lance and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs.
Together, they'll discover new people and places and embark on an incredible new adventure far beyond Corona's walls.
The guest voice cast for season two includes Emmy Award winner and Academy Award nominee Carol Kane as the mystical traveler Madame Canardist; Lil Rel Howery as a fast-talking host named Goodberry; Yvonne Strahovski as Eugene's old love interest Stalyan; Bruce Campbell as the bizarrely charming King Edmund; Britt Robertson as the whip-smart no-nonsense teenager Vex; Timothy Dalton as inventor and adventurer Demanitus; Katy Mixon as the stunningly beautiful Seraphina; and Kathy Najimy as a sprightly and strange resident of the magical forest.
Last year, Moore shut down a dark and popular fan theory about a Tangled and Frozen shared universe that suggested Elsa and Anna's parents died while en route to Rapunzel and Flynn's wedding in Tangled Ever After.
"That's a pretty morbid fan theory," she said. "It feels like someone really reaching into Lost territory or something, or This Is Us territory. There is no connection, as far as I know. I don't think there's any connection, no."
In its debut season,'Tangled: The Series' became the number 1 animated series on cable among girls between the age group of 9 and 14 and reached a total of 40 million viewers.
