“Tangled” is easily one of my favorite Disney films EVER! I just love it and I my daughter has been watching it non-stop ever since she was born and she just turned 5. I was overly excited when I saw that Disney was making a TV series based on the film. “Before Ever After” is the kick-off movie to the series and a great follow-up to the motion picture. The original characters (and voices) are back as well as some great new characters and beautiful music/songs by Disney legend Alan Menken.
Official Premise: After all those years stuck in a tower, everyone’s favorite “barefoot princess” (Mandy Moore) yearns to make up for lost time. With the help of her true love Eugene (Zachary Levi), pals Pascal and Maximus and daring new friend Cassandra, Rapunzel postpones her wedding and royal duties to defy danger and boldly explore life beyond Corona’s walls. Sparkling with fun, adventure and music from the legendary Alan Menken, “Tangled: Before Ever After” is a magical movie event!
The film itself runs a just under an hour, which is typical for the TV series kick off films similar to “Sofia the First” and “Elena of Avalor”. There are some extras includes on the DVD as well with four fun “Tangled” shorts: “Checkmate”; “Prison Bake”; “Make Me Smile”; “Hare Peace”. These are great and a nice bonus to “Tangled: Before Ever After”. If you aren’t watching the new TV series as well, which has been airing on the Disney Channel, I also highly recommend.
