Zachary Levi is counting down to the return of Tangled!
Disney is reviving the 2010 blockbuster movie for a new animated series,Tangled: Before Ever After, which will air 78 episodes over the course of three seasons. It will pick up after the end of Tangled when Finn (Levi) and Rapunzel (Mandy Moore) officially couple up.
“This takes place between when they end up getting married [in Tangled Ever After] and whatever those adventures were,” Levi told ET recently at YouTube Space in New York City.
Tangled was a huge success for Disney when it hit theaters six years ago, making nearly $600 million at the worldwide box office. That prompted Disney/Pixar chief creative officer John Lasseter -- the man behind Tangled -- to rethink his desire to move away from fairy tales following the movie smashed expectations.
“He said, ‘Alright guys, this is it. This is the last one,’” the 35-year-old actor recalled Lasseter saying. “Then he made Tangled and we did really well and it was enough to buoy that for them to go and make Frozen.”
“So I will say to the Frozen people, ‘You’re welcome. You are welcome,’” Levi joked.
With networks rebooting and resurrecting beloved franchises for a new generation, Levi put to bed any notion that a Chuck revival series could be in the forecast. However, he was more open to the idea of a feature film reincarnation for the NBC action comedy.
“That’s what I’d like to do,” he said. “Even before we wrapped the show [in 2012], I always thought it would be fun to do annual or semi-annual Chuck movies, just to get the band back together for a month or two because it’s a premise that can lend itself to that. But getting everybody back together to get the series back together would be difficult.”
Tangled: Before Ever After premieres on Disney Channel in 2017.
