Tangled: Before Ever After is both a TV Movie and a series. Both will air on Disney Channel later this year: the movie will launch the series based on the 2010 WDAS' classic Tangled. Both Mandy Moore and Zachary Levi will reprise their roles as Rapunzel and Flynn Rider, respectively, while Alan Menken will write new songs. The main difference between the feature film and this TV version is the transition from CGI to traditional animation. Watch the new trailer below.

Welcome to the 6th edition of the A113Animation Awards! We've got a good one for you this year, considering the amount of amazing animated films that have been released in the past 12 months. 2016 is arguably the best year for animation since 2012, and the choices ahead of us are going to be quite tough.

The films eligible for an Award must have been released in the UK in 2016. The Winners will be announced on Saturday 14th January. Without further ado and in alphabetical order by film, here are the 6th A113Animation Awards Nominations:
