It is believed that it will air in 2017.

Actors Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi have once again signed up to play their respective roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider.

Due to the phenomenal success of the movie, Disney released a short titled 'Tangled Ever After' in 2012.

The short film was released in conjunction with the 3-d relaunch of Beauty and the Beast, and showed the wedding day of Rapunzel and Eugene.

According to insiders, the tv show will take place in the interim period between the original movie and the short film.

The tv version will apparently follow Rapunzel as she gets to know her parents, her kingdom, and the citizens of Corona.

“Her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity about the world drives her to the realization that there is so much more she needs to learn before she can truly accept her royal destiny.

"She boldly puts her crown and impending marriage on hold to seek out epic adventures, much to the dismay of the King who, after missing out on Rapunzel’s youth, must accept that his daughter is now an independent young woman," sources say.

The duo responsible for the movie’s original score, composer Alan Menken and lyricist Glenn Slater, are also on board.
