REPORT: Disney’s ‘Tangled Before Ever After’ to Premiere in February


'Tangled Before Ever After'According to promotional materials obtained by Stitch Kingdom, Disney Television Animation’s Tangled spin-off series, ‘Tangled Before Ever After,’ is set to premiere in February 2017. Actually, a ‘tentpole’ event (likely an extended episode/movie) is slated to premiere in February while the series itself is planned for a June 2017 start. Granted it’s still early and this has not been officially announced, so it should be taken with a grain of salt.

What is official, however, is word from executive producer Chris Sonnenburg has created his own Tumblr account since the most recent casting announcement and promises to not only acknowledge how Rapunzel reclaimed her long hair in the series, but has plans to actually explain it.
