    • I'm so excited, I would be okay with skipping Halloween to see this episode. :DDD

      And I'm happy to read that she will appear in a handful of episodes.. I was a little afraid of her being a one-episode character. Though I also thought that they wouldn't wait so long for her to appear and then make her a one-time-thing. 

      Whatever.. CAN'T WAIT!!

      I hope they won't turn her into another Aurora. She was part of 9 episodes arc but she was barely a background character without her own centric episode.

      Ariel will not be the Season 3 equivalent of Aurora, that is pretty obvious. 3.06 will feature Ariel's backstory, and everything.

      We saw Cinderella centric episode as well, but that was basically all from her (and she is an iconic Disney and fairytale character, as much as Ariel). Still, it's all about creators and their plans so I hope they won't make her go into oblivion after episode or two.

      Cinderella and Aurora are totally different cases. Cinderella was always intended to be a one-shot. The creators overestimated Aurora's appeal, to the audience.

      The creators love the character of Ariel, and I am sure they will respect one of their favorite Disney characters. Ariel will probably to treated the same way Belle was, back in Season 1.... gradually test out the waters, and see how the audience responds to her.

    • As Ariel was always my favourite Disney character and The Little Mermaid always my favourite fairytale, for me they can't do anything wrong with her. I have always been extremely happy about how they made the fairytales play out in their own version and I'm sure I will be happy about Ariel's story too. I just hope to see her a looooooot.

    • Impressive. Seeing Ariel in SB behind Belle. That's going to be an interesting scene to watch. Two Princesses in one episode.. Yes, and in Storybrooke.

      I really don't mind that Aurora became so unimportant, she was really annoying. However it does suck that Mulan won't make any appearances anymore after the first ep of season 3 (seeing Jamie's status as regular in Believe) I did love her.

      But Ariel probably won't be a season 3 Aurora, her fanbase is too big for that. And Once also listens to the fans.

    • Oh they're gonna bring Aurora back at some point they've made references to it.

      And with Cinderella, I feel like there's really not nearly as much to work with to really flesh it out properly the way Snow White was, for example. I hate it too, but eh.

      Actually, there is a lot that could go wrong with Ariel's arc.

      The original Hans Christian Andersen fairytale, and the Disney animated film are vastly different. The show will need to find the proper balance; without undermining both Ariel and Prince Eric, as characters. 

      PS: it is official.... Ariel and Prince Eric are the best-dressed  couple, on the show!

    • It's funny that Ariel will be in this season because The Little Mermaid will be rereleased on Blu Ray this season as well.

      Because... Ariel only wears her bikini and that dress? :p

    • I believe Cinderella will make appearances in Once in wonderland.

      What? Mulan won't appear after the first episode? That's a bummer. Same thing with Aurora and Philip!

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Ashley will make an appearance in Once in Wonderland, not too sure if her counterpart Cinderella will make one too. But I wonder if Mulan isn't going to appear in the next one, because it would be weird if she suddenly disappeared from Rumple's castle.

      Jeez, they're a good looking couple, huh?  I love Prince Eric's casting.  I feel the eyes are a perfect match. 


      Regarding Cinderella, I'd venture a guess that she's the most popular Disney Princess of all time?  That being said, I appreciate the fact that she's not a major character.  Mulan, Ariel, Snow White, they've got their followings.  But If you polled people, I really think Cinderella would come out on top.  She's had her moment.  I like that other princesses take center stage on OUAT.  But that's just one gal's opinion.  I'm not even team-princess, personally.  I'm a Tinkerbell fan since a young age.

    • I always thought Cinderella was the lamest princess of all the princesses, well the least interesting. When I was young I always watched Beauty and the Beast over and over again until one day the tape was broken. Then I had to get it on DVD.

      Personally Belle is my favorite princess, and after that Mulan (if she is considered a princess) else I say Ariel.

      OUaT's Ariel and Prince Eric are incredibly adorable, from the looks of the pictures and promo.... which is not, at all, surprising ;)
