— -- Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi are back in the upcoming "Tangled" animated series that was announced today.

The two actors who voiced leading roles in the 2010 hit movie will be back as Rapunzel and Eugene, according to a release today from the Disney Channel.

Moore, 31, tweeted today, "Very excited for new adventures AND music! Ready to jump back in, @ZacharyLevi?"

"The series will premiere in 2017 on Disney Channels around the world," the release continued.

Gary Marsh, president and chief creative officer, Disney Channels Worldwide, added, "The genius of the original movie was its seamless blending of cinematic adventure, character-driven comedy and touching emotion. And we are fortunate to have several of the creative talent from that movie on board with this new production."

The story will be set between the 2010 film and the 2012 short film, "Tangled Ever After."

"The animated series unfolds as Rapunzel acquaints herself with her parents, her kingdom and the people of Corona. Her irrepressible spirit and natural curiosity about the world drives her to the realization that there is so much more she needs to learn before she can truly accept her royal destiny. She boldly puts her crown and impending marriage on hold to seek out epic adventures," the release continued.

Disney Channels Worldwide and ABC News are both divisions of the Walt Disney Co.
