Coming at you EVERY Thursday this summer,  ANIMATED INSIGHTS BY SHANNON MUIR takes you inside Shannon’s latest reflections on her passion for animation as a medium, and other animated insights about life. To catch up on all posts, check out the Animated Insights portion of the website! This week, Shannon talks about catching up on the latest season of RAPUNZEL’S TANGLED ADVENTURE (formerly known as TANGLED THE SERIES). It’s taken me a while to catch up fully on what Rapunzel, Eugene, and their friends discovered after leaving Corona at the start of the season, urged on by events at the end of the season when the show went by another name. The start and end of this season are fantastic… but to be honest, it felt like a lot was padded in between.

The season ender left me wanting the promised last season of this series to see how it all ends… even though we know from a short made years ago what Rapunzel and Eugene’s ending will be. I do feel the staff behind this series has made us care enough to want to take the ride and see HOW Rapunzel and Eugene get to the ending we already know about.

One nice surprise was the explained return of a character that was in the film, but inexplicably disappeared when the series premiered. We get that answer in an episode that I found to be one of the enjoyable ones. I’ll leave off letting the clip speak for itself.

See you next week!
