Back in the early 2000’s, Disney released a movie called ‘Stitch! The Movie’ and it followed characters many loved from the film ‘Lilo & Stitch’ in a new adventure. When the film ended, it teased at more stories to follow, leading to the release of ‘Lilo & Stitch: The Series’. Disney is trying this again with the release of the animated film ‘Tangled Before Ever After’ which in many cases follows in ‘Stitch! The Movie’ footsteps.
It tells an original story following Rapunzel after the events from the film ‘Tangled’ and see’s her going on another adventure. Disney released the first five minutes of the film (which will be airing on Disney Channel this month) on their official YouTube channel and it looks quite promising.
One thing I took note of is how the character’s match up with the film counterparts not only with their writing but also through the voice acting. The characters are voice by their movie counterparts for example. Animation is another thing that stood out, as it heavily mirrors the style seen in the Disney XD Series ‘Pen Zero: Part Time Hero’. This animation style/look matches up with the Tangled world quite well, so it’s a good fit.
You can learn more about the movie/TV series below via press release Disney put out within the video’s description.
