Walt Disney Pictures has announced that “Tangled Ever After,” the short film follow-up to their 2010 hit animated feature, will premiere before the theatrical release of Beauty and the Beast 3D, beginning January 13th. The official details are as follows:
By popular demand, directors Nathan Greno and Byron Howard are bringing back some of Disney’s most beloved characters when “Tangled Ever After” picks up where “Tangled” left off. The Kingdom is in a festive mood as everyone gathers for the royal wedding of Rapunzel and Flynn. However, when Pascal and Maximus, as flower chameleon and ring bearer, respectively, lose the gold bands, a frenzied search and recovery mission gets underway. As the desperate duo tries to find the rings before anyone discovers that they’re missing, they leave behind a trail of comical chaos that includes flying lanterns, a flock of doves, a wine barrel barricade and a very sticky finale. Will Maximus and Pascal save the day and make it to the church in time? And will they ever get Flynn’s nose right?
“Tangled Ever After” is the perfect accompaniment to “Beauty and the Beast”, which is returning to the big screen in Disney Digital 3D and introducing a whole new generation to the Disney classic with stunning new 3D imagery. Beauty and the Beast was nominated for six Academy Awards, winning Oscars for Best Song, by the renowned Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, and Best Original Score (Menken).
