One of the best Disney films of all time is continuing its story on TV!
The TV launch follows the premiere of the 45-minute special Tangled Before Ever After which came out in July. Tangled Before Ever After is Disney Channel’s number one telecast of the year to date.
Rapunzel’s exploits continue in the highly anticipated premiere of Tangled: The Series, which will premiere on 11th September 2017 on Disney Channel and DisneyLife.
