|Hi guys i.m a hug manga and anime fans .|
ABC’s Once Upon a Time is opening Season 4 with an 11-episode arc that introduces several characters from Disney’s Frozen, an animated blockbuster that most every rugrat has seen, like, seven times by now.
Including young Henry…?
While Emma and Regina’s son for three seasons has watched characters from his storybook come to life (for better or worse), is he now about to drop his popcorn upon spying Queen Elsa of Arendelle (played by Fringe‘s Georgina Haig) leap from the big screen into Storybrooke?
As part of our all-encompassing, in-depth Fall Preview interview, I ran that burning question (which I believe was first raised by TVLine reader Gail; please collect your 500 Power User Points!) pastOnce creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis, and the simple answer is no, Henry won’t recognize Elsa & Co. — and for a very good reason.
As Horowitz explains, Once “occurs in a semblance of real time,” starting with Emma Swan’s Oct 23, 2011 birthday aka the series premiere. With Season 2 encompassing less than a year, and even factoring in Season 3’s midseason time jump, “We calculated that we are now living in the early part of 2013,” Horowitz notes. Meaning, Henry not only couldn’t have seen Frozen (a late-November release) yet, but its first teaser trailer won’t hit the Storybrooke Cinema for months.
The other question on many a viewer’s mind is born of a Season 3 that revealed A) Peter Pan to be Rumplestiltskin’s father and B) the Wicked Witch as Regina’s half-sister. So, who in Storybrooke will wind up having family ties to Elsa, Anna or any of the other Frozen visitors?
In a word: nobody. (Cue many sighs of relief.) “We will go on record as saying that we are not going to reveal that, for example, Elsa is somebody’s sister,” Horowitz makes clear.
Once Upon a Time Season 4 premieres Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8/7c.
ABC’s Once Upon a Time will get Frozen this September when characters inspired by the Oscar-winning Disney film arrive in Storybrooke, and the network has today revealed six new photos from the fourth season premiere, titled “A Tale of Two Sisters.”
Anna is played by Fringe alum Georgina Haig, while Kristoff is played by Greek’s Scott Michael Foster. (Anna, who is not featured in the images, is played by newcomer Elizabeth Lail.)
While the OUAT creators have been very tight-lipped about how the Frozenfoursome (yes, we’re counting Sven the reindeer) fit into the ABC drama, a clip from the premiere episode that screened at San Diego Comic-Con featured Elsa telling Anna, “I have a wedding present for you,” while standing at their parents’ graves.
It looks like a lavish celebration is on the horizon. Although, given that no one has truly received a “Happily Ever After” yet on this show, one never knows…
2. Regina is likely going to go evil again. “Now that Emma has brought back Robin Hood’s wife, Marian, and possibly sparked the end of Regina’s relationship with him, will she return to her old, evil ways and do everything in her power to get even?”
3. Belle is totally going to find out her new hubby duped her, right? “Newlyweds Belle and Rumplestiltskin continue to be deeply in love with each other. But Rumple is hiding a secret from Belle—one that, if found out, could destroy their happiness: he continues to be the master of the dagger that calls upon him to be the Dark One.”
4. Being in a relationship might not be so easy for Emma and Hook. “Can Emma and Hook commit to one another, and can these two damaged people take their love to the next level?”
5. Mary Margaret and David may feel guilty over raising baby Neal. “Mary Margaret and David have a new baby, Prince Neal, and are looking forward to raising him into a proud, brave and loving adult. But they are still sad that they were not able to do this with Emma, instead helping her escape the curse when she was first born and not meeting her again until she was 28 years old.”
6. Henry is going to have to choose his path. “Henry is very happy to have both of his mothers back in Storybrooke. But with biological mom Emma and paternal grandfather Rumplestiltskin’s blood running through his veins, he will be tested by both the light and the darkness.”
7. The Knave and the Red Queen may not have gotten a happy ending after all. “Will Scarlet, a former member of Robin Hood’s band of Merry Men, has traveled across many lands to make his way to Storybrooke. He finds himself intertwined in the goings-on in town for the first time as his mysterious past pushes him to an unknown future.”
Once Upon a Time returns Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
