  • I'm really surprised that there hasn't been any casting yet for them. Do you think that Tiana might have a different kind of "Prince" like Rumple being the "Beast" to Belle?  I know that Lady Tremaine is going to be the main villain for season 7, but I think it would be neat if Dr. Facilier could be like what Rumple was to the Evil Queen. What do you all think?

    • For Mod or Admin: This needs to be moved to the Spoilers Board.

      For the topic: I think they either haven't cast Naveen or Facilier yet, or they have and are keeping it a secret. Either way though, I think Naveen and Facilier will be cast at some point this season. They are both two important and iconic to not do with Tiana.

    • Yes, remember that if you refer to something in an episode that hasn't aired yet, it is a spoiler.

      Easy answer is: It's isn't her centric yet. We probably don't even know that she's Tiana yet. (if we didn't know spoiles).

    • Maybe it was Dr. Facilier who launched this new curse, and the writers want to keep him as a surprise villain of the season.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I want to see Facilier played by Harold Perrinau, I also would like to see his demons.

    • I want to see Tyrese Gibson as Prince Naveen, since he was known on the Fast and Furious Franchise, I think Will Smith will be the perfect Facilier on the show

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Agree with the suggestion of Harold Perineau portraying Facilier!

      While those are good actors, they are movie actors, and would not be able to be afforded by a tv show. Just something to keep in mind.

      That could work since we know it's not Lady Tremaine who casts this curse. She obviously keeps her real memories since she's trying to keep the fairy tale characters separated, so maybe she struck a deal with him like Rumple did with Regina when she cast the first curse.

    • I was hoping to hear some news about a story arc for The Princess and the Frog and news of Prince Naveen and Dr. Facilier's casting at the TCA, but there wasn't any. I guess I'll just have to wait a little longer.

    • I have to say, I'm surprised they haven't announced the casting of Vladimir, since he appears in multiple episodes in a mysterious role, not even the character, just the actor cast announcement. Maybe he's not important enough? People also saw Tiana talking to (maybe) Naveen and that wasn't announced either.

      He certainly does look like he'd be a great Naveen.

    • I know that I keep bringing it up, but I'm still surprised that news was reported for the casting of Eudora, Tiana's mother. However, we have yet to hear anything on Prince Naveen or Dr. Facilier. They really must be keeping their roles under wraps.

      Nah, could be, but I think they're saving it for a later episode.

    • Mekia Cox has just been promoted to a series regular.

      I'm starting to think that another character will serve as Tiana's Naveen like how Rumple is the Beast to Belle. Maybe Tiana will be Hook's new love interest.

      Nice. I was starting to wonder, because if she is going to appear in almost all the episodes (she is already in at least the first 5), it is cheaper to just put her in a contract.

      Most likely not. As far as we've seen, Sabine/Tiana only went to Officer Rogers/Hook to help on some case...and that's about it.

      Plus, Tiana searches for her prince in flashback, so I hardly think Hook is somehow involved being a married man.

      Yeah, I think Rogers/Sabine are only working together on his case as friends. Besides, it's not like Hook hasn't worked with Disney Princesses before and just remained friends/became friends with them; Aurora, Mulan, Snow White, Ariel, and Jasmine come to mind.

      The writers have said they are not going to give Hook a new love interest or tear Captain Swan apart.

      I'm interested to delve into the details of their relationship, though.

    • Okay, now that the Captian Hook from Storybrooke is still with Emma I think that the Wish Realm Hook is going to be Tiana's Naveen.

      According to the Mekia, Naveen hasn't been introduced and she isn't sure if or when he'll ever appear on ouat. So, Wish!Hook being Tiana's Naveen is possible.

    • Naveen is coming! http://tvline.com/2017/11/03/greys-anatomy-season-15-meredith-love-interest-new-doctor/

      Question: Is there any chance Naveen from The Princess and the Frog could pop up in Once Upon a Time Season 7? —Lady Tremaine


      Ausiello: Indeed, the ABC series is currently seeking a thirtysomething African-American to fill the role of Naveen, a fun-loving adventurer who hides a tragic past. Series co-creator Adam Horowitz told Matt Mitovich we’ll meet Tiana’s would-be prince in the second half of the season.

    • That's what I thought. Mekia said OUAT's Tiana is a mix between Disney's Tiana and the Princess from The Frog Prince. Tonight's episode will introduce Marius, who seems to be the Prince from the fairytale; but then, they'll introduce Naveen, her real love interest.

    • So, I'm quite positive that I have found the actor for Naveen.

      Jeff Pierre. You may know him from Beyond or Shameless (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm4168033/)

      He started following Mekia and Daniel Francis (Facilier's actor) on Instagram recently... And they both followed him back :P


      Which kind of confirm that Facilier is going to reappear too :P

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • I sort of hope we see a lot more of Dr. Facilier. I think it would be cool if he was like the dark one in this realm. The black magic around him looked like it. I'd like if he was like the Black Fairy in the second half. Oooor. He can appear in the season finale / winter finale in the final scene, stating he is the new main villain.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Just thought I'd give an update on this thread: Facilier/Samdi is definitly appearing in multiple episodes, and Jeff Pierre is almost certainly Naveen, given this:

      Look at Jeff's costume versus the Disney movie of Naveen:

When I saw Mekia Cox at TCA, she previews the introduction of Tiana’s Prince Naveen, who apparently will pop up in Hyperion Heights (played by Beyond‘s Jeff Pierre). “There are some people that Sabine meets that might be familiar to the fans of Princess Tiana’s story — one in particular, who’s a love interest,” she teased. Similarly, Dr. Facilier (played by Daniel Francis) will be resurfacing with a cursed identity of his own. “It’s fitting, I’ll say that!” Cox teased of the soothsayer’s Hyperion Heights vocation. “I really like what they’ve done with his character.

    • Actually he has a Daughter named Freddie who was introduced in Descendants Wicked World Short Series. Besides Naveen is a prince introduced in the movie, they only cast VK And AD Kids for Descendants only. Naveen and Tiana will be the new couple for this last Season.

      I think maybe Facilier is the father and somehow got his sons necklace after he died but he lost it and it went to Naveen, the other son.
