DVD Review: Tangled: Before Ever After

An intriguing art style and a strong female lead character headline Tangled: Before Ever After, which serves as a sequel to Disney's hit. Legendary composer Alan Menken (Tangled, Beauty and the Beast) combines memorable lyrics and his musical expertise to some new tunes that girls of all ages will no doubt be belting out very soon. The story feels like it's leading to something bigger, which makes sense if you take into consideration that this is the pilot for a new television series for the Disney Channel.

After all those years stuck in a tower, everyone's favorite "barefoot princess" (Mandy Moore) yearns to make up for lost time in Tangled: Before Ever After. With the help of her true love Eugene (Zachary Levi), pals Pascal and Maximus (Dee Bradley Baker) and daring new friend Cassandra (Eden Espinosa), Rapunzel postpones her wedding and royal duties to defy danger and boldly explore life beyond Corona's walls.

The DVD of Tangled: Before Ever After comes with a few bonus items to enjoy. Four "short cuts" are included entitled "Checkmate", "Prison Bake", "Make Me Smile", and "Hare Peace".

Tangled: Before Ever After hit DVD on April 11th, 2017. It was directed by Tom Caulfield and Stephen Sandoval (Rick and Morty, Gravity Falls). The cast includes Mandy Moore, Zachary Levi, Clancy Brown, Eden Espinosa, Julie Bowen, and Jeffrey Tambor. The running time is 56 minutes.

Tangled: Before Ever After is available now on DVD and Digital HD.
