RAPUNZEL SWINGS INTO ACTION WITH THE PREMIERE OF THE
DISNEY CHANNEL ORIGINAL MOVIE ‘TANGLED BEFORE EVER AFTER,’ ON FRIDAY, MARCH 10, AND THE HIGHLY ANTICIPATED DEBUT OF
'TANGLED: THE SERIES,’ ON FRIDAY, MARCH 24
Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi Reprise their Roles
From Walt Disney Animation Studios’ Acclaimed Film 'Tangled’
KINGDOM OF CORONA – Set between the stories told in Walt Disney Animation Studios’ acclaimed film “Tangled” and its short film “Tangled Ever After,” the Disney Channel Original Movie “Tangled Before Ever After” makes its debut on FRIDAY, MARCH 10 (8:00 p.m. EST) leading to the highly anticipated premiere of “Tangled: The Series” on FRIDAY, MARCH 24 (7:30 p.m. EDT). Reprising their roles are Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi as Rapunzel and Eugene (formerly known as Flynn Rider), respectively.
The visually vibrant animated adventure/comedy movie and series unfold as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity lead her to realize that there is so much more she needs to learn about the world and herself before she can assume her role as Princess of Corona. Beloved characters from the feature film accompany Rapunzel on her journey, including her partner in life Eugene; her loyal chameleon sidekick, Pascal; no-nonsense and dutiful horse, Maximus; and the Snuggly Duckling Pub Thugs. The series introduces newcomer Cassandra (voiced by Broadway’s Eden Espinosa), a tough-as-nails lady-in-waiting, who becomes Rapunzel’s good friend and confidante.
In the Disney Channel Original Movie, Rapunzel grapples with both the new responsibilities of being princess and the overprotective ways of her father. While she wholeheartedly loves Eugene, Rapunzel does not share his immediate desire to get married and settle down within the castle walls. Determined to live life on her own terms, she and Cassandra embark on a secret adventure where they encounter mystical rocks that magically cause Rapunzel’s long blonde hair to grow back. Impossible to break and difficult to hide, Rapunzel must learn to embrace her hair and all that it represents.
“Tangled Before Ever After” will be available on the Disney Channel app and Disney Channel VOD platforms beginning Friday, March 10. “Tangled: The Series” will be available beginning Friday, March 24. Following its U.S. debut, the Disney Channel Original Movie and series will roll out globally in 33 languages in 162 countries on Disney Channels worldwide.

Scout Trouble - Elvis Presley Uptown Funk - Mark Ronson Intoxicated - Martin Solveig Baby I Need Your Lovin - The Four Tops Glitter & Gold - Cheap Time Mamma Said - The Shirelles Mmm Yeah - Austin Mahone Hey Micky! - Toni Basil Jailhouse Rock - Elvis Presley Hound Dog - Elvis Presley You’re the One that I Want - from Grease
For Scout I wanted to get that Greaser feel, yet one that hit home. A loudmouth, no good, fast running mama’s boy like Scout deserves only the best sort of music; upbeat with a splash of that New York feel, this one I think captures his personality best out of all of these.
Engie Butterfly Kisses - Bob Carlisle Technologic - Daft Punk Honey I’m Good - Andy Grammar Chicken Fried - Zachary Brown Band All My Ex’s Live in Texas - George Strait Geekin’ - will.i.am Without Thinking - The Streets Friends In Low Places - Garth Brooks 9 to 5 - Dolly Parton Save a Horse, Ride a Cowboy - Big & Rich Good Time - Alan Jackson
I wanted to stray away from country as much as I could for Engie, but I couldn’t resist, as some of these are so cute and I thought they would be songs he would listen to.
Spy I’m An Albatroaz - AronChupa Happy - Pharrell Heartbreak Hotel - Elvis Presley That’s Amore - Dean Martin You Make Me Feel So Young - Frank Sinatra Death Of a Bachelor - Panic! At the Disco Stand By Me - Ben E. King This Magic Moment - The Drifters La Mer - Charles Trenet J'attendrai - Tino Rossi I Just Called To Say I Love You - Stevie Wonder
Being a lovebird (y’know, French and all) I wanted to get that slow dance sort of emotion to this playlist, but still keep that edge because we all know Spy will stab a bitch if needed and not even ruin his manicure.
Sniper Angel - Aerosmith Ghost - Halsey Here I Go Again - Whitesnake Me, Myself, and I - G-Eazy Wanted Dead Or Alive - Bon Jovi Turn The Page - Bob Seger Everytime - Britney Spears Roads - Portishead Brick - Ben Folds Five Fade Into Darkness - Avicii Alone Together - Fall Out Boy
This elusive Aussie was surprisingly easier to make a playlist for than I was worried about. Then again, I had a friend who is a total Sniper nerd there to help me. This one captures his loneliness a lot and really gives me feels.
Soldier Little Soldier Boy (Leaves From The Vine) - Mako Iwamatsu God Bless The USA - Lee Greenwood Hero - Enrique Iglesias Cat’s In The Cradle - Harry Chapin Till I Collapse - Eminem Remember The Name - Fort Minor Everybody Loves My Baby - Boswell Sisters Rock The House - Gorillaz No One Likes Super Man Anymore - I Fight Dragons Let’s Dance - David Bowie Rub Some Bacon On It - Rhett And Link
Soldier doesn’t know when to stop. Nor does he know anything outside of serving for his country, or at least thinking he is. Keeping a somewhat silly yet rough/serious edge to this was the challenge, but in the end I had a lot of fun making this one. Especially the last song.
Pyro White Rabbit - Jefferson Airplane Puff The Magic Dragon - Peter Paul & Mary Wouldn’t It Be Nice - The Beach Boys Under Pressure - Queen As The World Falls Down - David Bowie Three Little Birds - Bob Marley What’s A Wonderful World - Louis Armstrong Skyfall - Adele Training Wheels - Melanie Martinez Somewhere Over The Rainbow - Israel “IZ” On Melancholy Hill - Gorillaz
I wanted to get two sides to this one: Pyro’s wonderland, and the destruction happening outside of their view. I like to imagine them skipping merrily then with maybe a flower crown and unknowingly crunching skulls under their boots as they go along. That’s kinda dark, huh?
Medic Sweet Dreams - Eurythmics Flying High Again - Ozzy Osbourne Welcome To The Jungle - Guns N’ Roses Blood - My Chemical Romance Born To Die - Lana Del Ray Take My Breath Away - Berlin Hard Knock Life (Ghetto Anthem) - Jay Z The Bad Touch - Bloodhound Gang 99 Luftballoons - Nena All Shook Up - Elvis Presley Another One Bites The Dust - Queen
Another playlist for another sadistic maniac *sigh*. I’m not too fond of the serious no bullshit scary German man that most of the fandom seems to portray Medic as, as in the comics and SFM’s, he has his intelligent side then his fun loving (maniacal) side.
Heavy Counting Bodies Like Sheep - A Perfect Circle Cochise - Audioslave Mosh - Eminem I’m Comin’ Home - P. Diddy Spaz Out - Army Of The Pharaohs Welcome Home - Coheed and Cambria Work - Kanye West Smells Like Teen Spirit - Nirvana Bad Case Of Lovin You - Robert Palmer Paint It Black - The Rolling Stones Viva La Vida - Coldplay
Oh man, this one was intense. I wanted to get that serious big tough guy feel on this one. I added a couple more subdued songs, as he does have his soft side, but this one is definitely for the battlefield.
Demoman Red Solo Cup - Toby Kieth Tubthumping - Chumbawamba Shots - LMFAO Wobble - V.I.C. The Maid Gaed To The Mill - A Scottish Drinking Song Escape - Rupert Holmes Hooked On A Feeling - Blue Swede Fooled Around And Fell In Love - Elvin Bishop I Want You Back - Jackson 5 O-O-H Child - The Five Stairsteps September - Earth, Wind, & Fire
I’m not gonna lie, like a lot of these are from the Guardians Of the Galaxy soundtrack oops. I just really like that laid back no worries sort of feeling those songs have. I think Demoman would be the kind to not dwell on those icky thoughts, and would much rather have a drink and a few laughs.
Ms. Pauling You Don’t Know - Eminem ft. 50 Cent Work, Hustle, Kill - Rob Bailey & The Hustle Standard Skinny Love - Bon Iver Lose Yourself - Eminem Smooth Criminal - Michael Jackson Bohemian Rhapsody - Queen Sweet Child O’ Mine - Guns N’ Roses Boss Ass Bitch - PTAF Hollaback Girl - Gwen Stefani You Make Me Feel Like Dancing - Leo Sayer Ain’t It Fun - Paramore
Ah, yes, my queen. Honestly, Miss Pauling is one of my favourite Tf2 characters. She has this badass outline with that sweet awkward creme filling that gives me cavities whenever she appears!
