  • Hi! I was just wanting to hear some people opinions, but, if it was still airing and wasn't on the crappy timeslot it was given, how far do you think it would have gone? Maybe as long as OUAT or longer? Would it still be here as we speak? lol What storylines do you think we would have seen; like would Jafar still be the villain or would there be a newer one?

    Also, I heard from many peopl (including friends and family) that the storyline was much better than, OUAT's not saying that the original was bad or anything but mylittle curious question is why, in anyone's opinion? ^-^

    • I hope that OUaTiW is over, but I would like it if Anastasia would come back.

    • Well, I think Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was better than 3b and about the same as 3a, to me. You had a good set of conflicts, great characters, and a setting that was part CGI and part normal, but that sort of goes with Wonderland's whimsicalness. And a basic plot to boot!

      If it had continued, it would go one to two seasons max, because I beleieve that they wanted to do different Ouat's in different lands. So, we probably would have a OUAT in Agrabah to follow up and do Aladdin and Jasmine, and then maybe a Oz and other ones in between seasons.

    • If there was a second season set in Wonderland, I wanna believe Peta Sergeant would have been promoted to the main cast as the Jabberwocky. She was so great. If it was set in another land (Agrabah, which seems likely), yeah, Aladdin and Jasmine would probably have joined the cast. I think it would have worked out fine if there was a continuation set in Agrabah with Alice, Cyrus, Jafar and, of course, Aladdin and Jasmine, but Will would still have moved to Storybrooke for season 4.

    • I would love to see as many seasons of OUATIW as possible. The writers could have explored the backstories of so many characters: the Jabberwocky, Lizard, the Tweedles, Cora, the Red King, Silvermist and we could also see such Wonderland habitants as Humpty Dumpty or the Dormouse.

    • Actually, I think OUaTiW was done when it ended, canceled or not.  They had a complete story wrapped up. all the way from "Once Upon a Time..." to  "... and they lived happily ever after".  Now, they might have done other spinoffs, and have them set in the remote lands, including possibly even an EF version. But each one would have been a complete story.

      ANd that's how I think they should do it if they try again. imo.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Yeah, I think it was planned to be wrapped up in a season  and then journey to new lands and stories for the other haituses. However, ABC failed to do it correctly and now we have Galavant. What I would give for Once Upon a ......

      Frozen was probably going to be one of those adn many other lands.

    • But if they covered all sorts of new lands in these spin-offs, what would they cover in each half-season of the main show? I liked the idea of giving focus to Wonderland which had already been briefly seen. Oz has also been rarely seen, but what characters could an Oz spin-off possibly focus on? Agrabah would be cool, I guess, if done right, but it seems like there's very little about it that seems actually interesting. Wonderland was cool because it's the strangest of places, defying all laws, where anything can happen.

    • You can make anything interesting. That's why they have writers and what not. They could use a grown up Dorothy or whatever plot because people would give it a chance even if the plot isn't traditional.

      Who knows what adventures we could behold, but also, there are countless lands, stories, and etc that will never be told on Once proper.

    • And with an Oz spinoff, for example, there are more stories other than the first one.  There are characters a plenty to pull from, stories that aren't as widely known.  L Frank Baum wrote a whole series of books around the Oz realm.

      And, as Esk said, any story can be made interesting, with the right script.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Right scripts are a rare commodity with OUaT.

      Totally agree with this. Most people seem to think of Wizard of Oz simply as the 1939 movie but there's so much more in land of Oz.

    • I don't believe there could be that many seasons of OUATIW, maybe 2 at the most?

      They already covered most of the major elements of the Alice In Wonderland book series (there only ever were two) and most of the major elements of Aladdin.

      Literally the only things that were missing were more Mad Hatter, Aladdin and Jasmine, and maybe some of those Out Of The Past characters, like the March Hare.

      We were also missing how Jafar got from Fairytale Land (where Agrabah and the EF are) to Wonderland, how Jafar and Anastasia met, why/how Cora killed the Red King, who saved Jabberwocky from the dungeon (confirmed by Adam on Twitter), how Jack fit in with the Jabberwocky, how Cora kidnapped Henry (let's be real, we'll never get that on the main show), Anastasia's role in Cinderella's story when it all happened while Ana was Red Queen according to Out Of The Past, and finally how Will and Ana were separated (my money is on Zelena, who would've been jealous of Ana for being taken in as a foster daughter by Cora and furious at Will for having possessed her stolen Elixir Of The Wounded Heart).

      It was an amazing show, but with only one folk tale and two books as the source material, and having drained most of the source material for good episodes, there wasn't really anything more to do unless they threw something else really big into the mix, like Hunchback, Atlantis or Tiana.

      Oz is very massive. L. Frank Baum apparently linked most of his novels into the same canon. He wrote an entire novel about Santa Claus' backstory, then made him have a cameo in one of the Oz books. There have always been theories about an Arendelle-Oz spin-off featuring Santa as the villain and Elsa as the heroine.

      And there's also Princess Ozma, who could be tricked by her council Kuzco into playing out the story of the Emperor's New Clothes (basically tricking her into thinking her nude body is draped in the most fragile and beautiful silks imaginable), and then taking on the moniker of the Evil Empress Yzma.

      There's a lot that Oz could play with, honestly and not all of it has to be limited to itself or even Zelena.

    • I hope that if, IF the darkness does get destroyed, that they do something with the Jabberwocky.

      We kinda did, let's face it. In episode 4.20, Cora visited Regina from Wonderland in the flashbacks. We can easily deduce that when she went back she took Henry with her. I think it was smart of the writers not to show it because it would probably look clunky anyway, and the casual viewers, who would not remember that story from episode 1.17, would most likely just think the writers were setting up a flashback story for a future episode, know what I mean?

      We can easily deduce that's when she did it, but that doesn't mean it's confirmed. I think it was a horrible execution if that's the case. With "The Cricket Game", Rumple mentioned that it was Snowing's wedding and gave Regina the idea to weild the Curse, directly alluding to Pilot, which probably happens that same day. The ending of "Family Business" directly alludes to the beginning of "Skin Deep". There's been many more episodes that do this as well (typically in the same season as each other, but still), so there's no excuse for "Mother" if that's what they were trying to do.

      At the very least, after Regina says to Cora that no one will ever love her (Regina), Cora struts out into the hallway and says something to the effect of "You have no idea what it means to be alone, Regina." and then casually walks up to Henry.

      There's no indication of any of that whatsoever.

    • I think OUATIW probably would been up to at least 4 seasons almost 5 if Aladdin and Jasmine would of somehow appeared on either the spin off series or OUAT.because otherwise Jafar being on the spin off series barely make sense he does not really fit in well with wonderland characters surrounding it is kind of almost like OUATIW was not thinking of Aladdin characters until the spin off. I feel like the show would of done better if it was given the OUAT empty time slot instead of the 8pm Thursday time slot and instead of galavant having the OUAT's spot when OUAT was on winter break,but I also feel like Jafar did not fit in all that well without Jasmine and Aladdin somehow being in both OUAT and OUATIW. Because it is almost Like Aladdin was forgotten about until the spin off series appeared. Which i feel like was Probably one of OUATIW's Weaknesses.

      Nope.

      OUATIW was always meant to be a one season thing. Then they would do another "spin-off" on a different story and land.

      Like American Horror Story, an anthology that would reset completely every season. Though Eddie and Adam did very much say that if the show was successful enough to warrant a second season, they'd show a new story with these same characters. So it would've focused on some new villain most likely, while keeping the Wonderland/Agrabah vibe.

      Probably would've introduced Aladdin and Jasmine as main characters in season 2 like Belle and Hook on the mother ship.

    • +Alex The OUAT Fan:I defientely agree, I feel like the Alice and wonderland gang(from OUAT and OUATIW) and The Aladdin gang(including Jafar need to go onto OUAT and get cursed and have a little bit more acting with each other because to me before Aladdin can be on a spin off series with another movie the actors will need to actually interact with each other In storybrooke) because I would love to See Jafar,Aladdin and Jasmine on OUAT interacting with the OUAT cast. Because that way Aladdin and another movie could Try another spin off that would actually work. I feel like Jafar was a last minute thought with OUATIW. Because I have yet to see Aladdin characters ending up in storybrooke.

      And I love OUATIW do not get me wrong I just Aladdin characters should be on OUAT with all the other Disney fairy tale characters. So that way if OUAT does get a successful spin off series it will not look like they were added in at the last minute.

      Plus I feel like Aladdin deserves to be on OUAT along with all The other fairytale characters.

    • I feel like Wonderland works best as a 1 season show.  Instead of Once Uppon a Time in Wonderland it shoud have been Once Upon a Time In... with season 1 being Wonderland.  That way each season could be like a seperate 1 season show showing all of the different worlds and introducing an all new cast like season 1 Wonderland did,

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Also I feel like the characters of Aladdin and Jasmine would work better with Sidney as theier genie than Cyrus.  If they choose to ever include those characters I think it should be with the completely unneeded backstory of Sidney.  But as like I said a backstory for Sidney in not needed and should never happen I don't feel like the show is at a loss without those characters, it wouldn't really add any to the story except for two more characters to never be seen again after a couple episodes and we have plenty of those and are constantly getting more.  The only way I could see Jafar ever becoming relevant to the main show would be for him to be Lilly's dad and I hope they choose someone better than him for that role.
