Mandy Moore and Zacahary Levi are bringing the Disney animated film Tangled to the small screen. Tangled--a box office hit from 2010--will become an animated series on the Disney Channel beginning in 2017, with Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi reprising their roles as Rapunzel and Eugene, respectively.

The Disney Channel issued a press release about the TV series on Thursday.

"The series will premiere in 2017 on Disney Channels around the world," it reads.

Gary Marsh is the president and chief creative officer of Disney Channels Worldwide. He added, "The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion. And we are fortunate to have several of the creative talent from that movie on board with this new production."

The TV series will be set between the 2010 film and the 2012 short film, Tangled Ever After, which also starred Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi.

Mandy Moore shared her excitement about the Disney Channel series via Twitter.

Zachary Levi followed suit.

"The animated series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people 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," the release continued.

Does someone in your home love Rapunzel? Will he or she be happy to learn that Tangled is coming to the Disney Channel?
