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.

REPORT: ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Season One on Blu-ray in September

'Star Wars Rebels'Ahead of any official announcement, Amazon has begun listing the first season of ‘Star Wars Rebels’ for release on both DVD and Blu-ray on September 1, 2015, which puts it well behind the launch date of season two, which will be June 20.

The entries lack descriptions, so there is no hint at any potential bonus features, but they do report a running time of 450 minutes which appears to be 2 hours longer than the combined length of the first season, including ‘Spark of Rebellion.’ Even account for the introductory shorts, there seems to be a substantial amount of previously unreleased content to be expected.

WATCH: ‘Star Wars Rebels’ Clip Featuring Frank Oz as Yoda

'Star Wars Rebels'Lucasfilm has released a couple of clips from its upcoming episode of ‘Star Wars Rebels,’ titled ‘Path of the Jedi.’ The first clip is titled ‘Yoda’s Guidance’ and features Kanan telepathically (?) receiving a message from Master Yoda — whom Kanan believed to have been long deceased — voiced in the January 5 episode by the legendary Frank Oz, who, of course, originated the role of Yoda.

The second clip, titled ‘Nothing and Everything’ has Kanan setting Ezra on a quest, which is probably what is hinted at by the episode’s official synopsis: ‘Ezra must face a great challenge as part of his growth as a member of the team.’
