Tangled: the Series

Post by SigmasonicX (?) » Tue Jul 10, 2018 2:50 am

Over at ResetEra, the Pony community there has been enjoying Tangled: the Series a lot, so I figured I should make a thread for it here. Largely going to copypaste my season 2 OT from ResetEra, with some modifications.

Image

Technically, the series changed its name to Rapunzel's Tangled Adventure with season 2. I'll just keep calling it Tangled: the Series ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Airs Sunday 9 AM ET on Disney Channel, starting June 24, 2018
Or watch it at midnight on DisneyGo

Tangled: the Series follows after the events of the movie but before the wedding special, with every lead movie actor reprising their roles and much of the movie production crew returning, including Alan Menken handling the songs.

Months after reuniting with her birth parents, Rapunzel comes across mysterious stone spikes that restore her magical hair but start wreaking havoc in Corona. She journeys outside the kingdom with her boyfriend and former thief Eugene (AKA Flynn), her lady-in-waiting and guard Cassandra, and animal friends Pascal and Maximus to unravel the mystery of these black rocks.

Season one started out as a charming but ultimately unremarkable series, but then things took a hard turn in the mid-season special "Queen for a Day" and it became quite good, going in directions you wouldn't expect from a Disney Princess show. Previously, I provided a recommended episode guide, but enough people liked certain episodes I didn't include, and enough small details from those other episodes come up later, that there isn't much of a point to following it. Still, it's there if you want it.

Note that from this point on, the thread will freely discuss season one spoilers.

PREVIOUSLY ON TANGLED: THE SERIES

Through a series of unfortunate circumstances where everyone made mistakes but no one was really at fault, Varian the alchemist found his father sealed in a crystal, and despite her promise to help, Rapunzel didn't. With his attempts to free his father failing, Varian grew mad with vengeance and attacked the royal family.



Rapunzel discovered her ability to control the mysterious stone spikes and used them to defeat Varian's army of giant robots. He's now in jail, but his father is no closer to being freed and he hasn't given up on his revenge.

Rapunzel's parents had previously kept her restricted to inside the walls of Corona, but in a way, that was still locking her up in a tower. Understanding that she shouldn't be restrained, they allow her to discover her destiny beyond the kingdom. When it comes time for her to return, the lanterns will still be there to guide her way.

What exactly is the connection between the sundrop and the black rocks? Who is that mysterious stranger that cut an indestructible rock in half? What role does the ancient sorcerer Zamfiri play in all this? Now that Rapunzel has achieved Super Princess, will she discover a level even further beyond? Find out in season two!

And some miscellaneous cute GIFs. Mainly of Rapunzel.

New episode today
4. Forest of No Return - July 15, 2018
When the gang gets lost in the Forest of No Return, they must rely on the mysterious Adira as their guide.

Clips from the season 2 commercial seem to show that the Everfree Forest has nothing on this place.

And here's a pretty good AMV

Well, you still get a decent amount of brunette Rapunzel in the pilot movie.


And this all happens before the wedding short, so she'll be brunette again by the end.

This whole series was worth it just for Queen for a Day. It's still generally good, but man am I jonesin' for that high again.

Oh hey, someone replied.

Yeah, while I like the show a lot still, it hasn't come close to the sheer, "Oh shit!" factor of Queen for a Day.

... This hiatus sure is lasting a while, huh?
