  • Since the creation of the United Realms, Queen Regina and her Second in Command Zelena have been dealing with everything that happens in the realms, but their greatest challenge yet comes when a witch who calls herself a queen, kidnaps Lucy and takes her to a far away land, beyond the Known Realms. However, the witch knows what she's doing, and is not willing to commit the same mistakes other villains made to fulfill her own destiny. Meanwhile, the Dawn Treader sails away to the land of Motunui when and old friend of Sabine tells her to go there in an expedition financed by none other than the famous Count Dracula.

    • Once Upon a Time Revival Set for Disney+ soon

      InfoboxPlainTitle


      On February 6, 2018, the Once Upon a Time fans were shocked to hear that the ABC hit show was going to end with its current season seven. Now, we can exclusively confirm that — after months of discussion — the show is going to get a season eight on a new home: Disney+.

      However, there's another twist on this tale: Original executive producers/showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis will not return to their duties. Instead, new showrunner Truest Believer is set to direct the season.

      Lana Parrilla, Andrew J. West, Dania Ramirez, Mekia Cox, Colin O'Donoghue and Adelaide Kane are confirmed to be returning this season, with JoAnna Garcia Swisher promoted, portraying both Ariel and her Wish Realm version. Also, new in the Once Upon a Time Universe are Richard Madden and Amanda Seyfried, portraying the couple of Count Dracula and Charlotte LaBouff, respectively. About characters like Zelena and Tilly, the showrunner says: "It doesn't mean they won't be important. We couldn't make more than 9 regulars, but they'll be surely important". 

      The eighth season of Once Upon a Time hits screens in late December, or early January.

    • "The show will go darker now", says showrunner Truest Believer

      Yesterday, the Disney+ executives announced the return of Once Upon a Time with its eighth season, with an already confirmed cast and with the first couple episodes already filmed. Now, showrunner Truest Believer has been interviewed by Schroeswald about the upcoming season. 

      Schroeswald: First of all, hello and good day. As a fan of Once Upon a Time, I'm very happy to hear the show's returning. 
      Truest Believer: Well thank you, I'm also very happy to make my directional debut with Once Upon a Time.
      S: What can we expect from the season?
      TB: Well, I'd say that the show is now going darker. Actually, one of the reasons it was announced after filming began was because the executives of Disney couldn't decide whether to air the show through Disney+ or Hulu, but it's been decided what we all know now, mostly because Hulu is U.S exclusive. In the original script, there were many sex and violence scenes, so I had to cut many parts to make it fit with Disney's policies. However, you still will get darker scenes. That's what you can expect: darker, better budget and more experimental.
      S: So, when did filming start?
      TB: It started on October 21st, in Atlanta, but now filming has split in two. One team is filming in many locations of the Caribbean, while the other is filming through Scandinavia.
      S: It does seem like it has a higher budget now...
      TB: Haha, yes!
      S: Richard Madden and Amanda Seyfried were confirmed to be playing the couple of Dracula and Charlotte LaBouff, from The Princess and the Frog. How was this unusual couple developed?
      TB: I always liked both characters and saw them as potential protagonists, and during the writing of the season, I saw that their arcs could be perfectly tied, thus saving a lot of time and I'm very happy how I wrote their relationship and their development.
      S: You said some guest characters had the importance of regular ones. Who'd you say are the most important?
      TB: Zelena, Tilly, Lucy, a new character portrayed by Cody Fern, and the main villain, who's identity I'll reveal in a few days.
      S: Will unfinished arcs be explored?
      TB: Yes. The Arendelle arc, Camelot and Philip's soul will be explored again.
      S: Any possible spin-offs?
      TB: Well, under my direction, I haven't received anything from the network.
      S: Well, that's all for now. Thanks for meeting us here, it was a pleasure. Hope to be able to interview you again.
      TB: Thank you, Schroeswald. Once Upon a Time returns around Christmas through Disney+ in the U.S, Canada, Australia and the Netherlands, while in the rest of the world, it will be available to be seen in 2020.

    • 'Once Upon a Great Adventure', canon?
      0bpF1IV.jpg

      On July 9, 2018, the second spin-off of "Once Upon a Time" was annouced, under the name of "Once Upon a Great Adventure", which covered two of the eight years before Lucy's birthday, in the search of Naveen by Queen Tiana and her crew, which grew bigger with each episode. The spin-off consisted of 13 episodes, and it was very well received by readers. After its ending, a second season went into development. However, after the complete reboot of Truest Believer's Season 8, fans had one question: is Once Upon a Great Adventure still canon?

      The answer is yes, but no. According to the showrunner, most aspects stay the same, except for some minor scenes and a key event in the ending.
      In the twelfth episode, "The Frog Prince", when Dr. Facilier completes his ritual and a huge storm appears in the New Fairy Tale Land, there's a brief scene of Dracula and Charlotte LaBouff talking and going into safety in the castle. That small scene is no longer canon, as well as Odie's kidnapping at the end of the season. According to Truest Believer, when the heroes won the battle, Odie stayed in court.

      Whether the recurring cast -- such as Syrena, Flounder and Juju -- will return, it's unknown. 

      Once Upon a Time returns around Christmas.

    • Three New Stars join the eighth season of "Once Upon a Time"

       Lm3kYod.jpg

      Three new stars have joined the eighth season of Once Upon a Time -- and fans are shocked to see who they are. They're none others than Anya Chalotra (The Witcher), Tom Hiddleston (Thor, Avengers) and Cody Fern (American Horror Story, The Assassination of Gianni Versace), all set to debut early in the season.  Chalotra and Hiddleston are set to debut in the first episode, recently revealed to be called "Show Stoppers". Chalotra is portraying a new iteration of the Red Queen -- whom we previously saw in "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland", described as "a queen who'd do anything for those she loves, even if it means facing a fate worse than death".

      Cody Fern's character -- nicknamed Christian -- is set to appear in later episodes. His description describes him as "an alchemist who wanders through a realm full of mysterious beasts". Finally, Hiddleston's character (under the code name of Radcliffe) was described as "a shapeshifter who arrives to destabilize the United Realms".

      The eighth season of Once Upon a Time arrives around Christmas.

      Well, I can confirm it's indeed a Cinderella-related episode. "Bottled Goodbye" doesn't give many clues about the centric, but that's a pretty good guess!

    • Once Upon a Time 8 teaser: detailed information and analysis

      Yesterday the footage shown on Decembe 7th at the Comic-Con of Brazil was released online by Once Upon a Time's new showrunner Truest Believer, revealing some returns and the voice of what seems to be a villain during the season.

      The teaser starts with a quiet shot of the United Realms as Emma and Regina talk about the Coven and the Black Fairy in the Royal Castle -- until something shines in front of them.

      After that, we saw Tom Hiddleston's character Radcliffe -- now revealed to be a werewolf -- attacking Zelena and Chad. Nextly, we see Madame Leota in her full form choking someone with magic as she says a very peculiar line: "What happens in the future?". And that's not the last we see of Leota, as the next shot shows the whole Coven performing a ritual with Drizella in the middle of it, as very disturbing music sounded in the background.

      Then we got to see Sabine and Rogers looking at the horizon. That shot was both questioned and celebrated by viewers as the last we saw of those characters together was that they had broken up after their journey across the New Fairy Tale Land in the second spin-off of the franchise, "Once Upon a Great Adventure". In the background, we saw Wish Ariel wearing very fancy clothes and her bracelet. When Rogers asks Sabine where they're going, she replies with "Into the Unknown", the name of the main song from Frozen II. Later, we see the same ship being caught by a storm as many members of the crew jump off the board.

      The last two "scenes" of the teaser are of Dracula approaching an elderly man -- portrayed by Charles Dance, as we saw from the teaser -- with a dagger. Note that the old man was in a wheelchair and didn't seem to be noticing anything around him. Finally, the last scene shows Madame Leota (from her crystal ball this time) lifting up Jacinda with her magic.

      And as we thought the teaser had ended and after confirming the season's release date (December 27), we heard the voice of Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick, known for her role of Lagertha in Vikings, saying "I am going to rip out everything you hold dear"

      Now all we have to do is wait until more news arrive, and hopefully, the first trailer this time, as this was only a teaser.

      "Show Stoppers" - Months after the creation of the United Realms, a mysterious attacker plots against the Royal Family of the Known Realms, and Jacinda gets involved in one of those attacks as she tries to find a way to reunite with her step-sisters. Meanwhile, Sabine dreams with an old friend and decides to go on a second adventure across the seas to find her in an expedition commanded by a melancholic count. In flashbacks, Henry and Cinderella get married but Henry notices something strange in the woods, and Cinderella leaves in a carriage at midnight to visit her step-mother.

      "Once Upon a Time" stars Lana Parrilla as Regina/Evil Queen, Colin O'Donoghue as Hook/Hook (Wish Realm), Andrew J. West as Henry Mills, Dania Ramirez as Cinderella/Jacinda, Mekia Cox as Tiana/Sabine, Adelaide Kane as Drizella and Richard Madden as Dracula.

      Guest starring in this episode are Alison Fernandez as Lucy, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Rebecca Mader as Zelena, Rose Reynolds as Tilly, Tiera Skovbye as Robin/Margot, Gabrielle Anwar as Rapunzel Tremaine, Emma Booth as Gothel, Naika Toussaint as Seraphina, Chilton Crane as the Blind Witch, Nisreem Slim as the Hedge Witch, Suzy Joachim as Madame Leota, Carol Kane as Baba Yaga, Beverley Elliot as Granny, Tony Amendola as Gepetto, Raphael Sbarge as Archie Hopper, Kristin Bauer van Straten as Maleficent, Nathan Parsons as Jack, Kip Pardue as Chad, Jamie Chung as Mulan, Sarah Bolger as Aurora, Oprah Winfrey as Mama Odie, Jeff Pierre as Drew, Jacob Tremblay as Christopher Robin, Anya Chalotra as the Red Queen, Aaron Tviet as the Knave of Hearts, Katheryn Winnick as Mysterious Woman, Tom Hiddleston as Radcliffe, Sebastian Stan as Jefferson and Alissa Skovbye as Paige

      The Vorpal Blade debuts in the same episode as the Mad Hatter, but it doesn't really debut. We've seen the Vorpal Blade before, but we'll learn more about it and its properties later.

      Scoop on Regina's arc -- Matheus123zx

      Regina acts as the leader of the group again, and will doubt her redemption and her role as queen. Her past lovers and family will be very important for her, and she'll do whatever it takes to stop the villain.

      The coven seems to be returning this ep, scoop on why? -- Schroeswald

      The Coven of the Eight is indeed returning, and not only for this episode. They are part of the flashbacks, and will be tied to the main villain, whom we'll see later interacting with them. Also, all of the questions we had (like Leota's status, the last witch and who were the witches from "Flower Child") will be answered early in the season. 

      Any scoop on Arendelle and Camelot? -- ONCEFanandHappyHippo

      We'll revisit Camelot again and every question we had after its arc will be answered, like Guinevere's state with the Sands of Avalon. As for Arendelle, we'll see Elsa, Anna and Kristoff again, but they most likely won't get a centric, as there's no context for it.

    • Two stars join the main cast of Once Upon a Time---- M4eJ2IM.jpg

      With Season 8 of Once Upon a Time going by its third episode, actresses Rose Reynolds -- who was a recurring character in the seventh season -- and Canadian actress Katheryn Winnick have been promoted to starring cast members starting with the fifth episode, "Evil's Soft First Touches", with the roles of Tilly and Pandora, respectively. 

      Reynolds has previously appeared in the first two episodes, and just like Winnick, is booked to appear in another episode before her promotion. 

      The first time we met Pandora was on the opening scene of the first episode, where she slaughtered everyone in New Wonderland, going by the title of the White Queen, with a loyal werewolf (portrayed by Tom Hiddleston) by her side.

      "Pandora is her name, but what are her other identities? We know she's the White Queen from Alice's Adventures in Wonderland, Pandora from Greek mythology and the White Witch from Narnia. But I can confirm she has at least two more identities. Also, her story can't be told in a single episode, right? We'll see her descend to madness and evilness throughout many episodes, and I'm exploring fun ways of telling them", says showrunner Truest Believer.

    • Filming for 8A has wrapped


      According to many reliable sources, the four filming teams for the first half of Season Eight have wrapped.

      The first team, code-named Team Pegasus, was the last to wrap filming in Norway, Sweden and Denmark with small parts in Iceland. The actors seen there were Lana Parrilla, Dania Ramírez, Andrew J. West, Adelaide Kane, Rose Reynolds and Katheryn Winnick, but Jennifer Morrison, Tiera Skovbye, Kristin Bauer van Straten and more were also briefly seen.

      Team Odyssey wrapped filming last night in the Canary Islands as confirmed by JoAnna Garcia Swisher, confirming the whole of the "Once Upon a Great Adventure"-arc were also there, including Mekia Cox and Colin O'Donoghue.

      The third team, Team Wolf, had only filmed a few weeks in Stevenston with different actors each week including all the Storybrooke regulars.

      Lastly, the one that filmed the least (but also the most expensive!) filmed in Edinburgh (Scotland) and Dubrovnik (Croatia) was Team Dragon. The only actor seen there was Cody Fern. However, Brandon Soo Hoo, Freya Allan and Katherine McNamara were also there.

      Filming for 8B is expected to begin in late February with new locations including Germany, China and France.

      Filming for 8A has wrapped

      ----

      According to many reliable sources, the four filming teams for the first half of Season Eight have wrapped.

      The first team, code-named Team Pegasus, was the last to wrap filming in Norway, Sweden and Denmark with small parts in Iceland. The actors seen there were Lana Parrilla, Dania Ramírez, Andrew J. West, Adelaide Kane, Rose Reynolds and Katheryn Winnick, but Jennifer Morrison, Tiera Skovbye, Kristin Bauer van Straten and more were also briefly seen.

      Team Odyssey wrapped filming last night in the Canary Islands as confirmed by JoAnna Garcia Swisher, confirming the whole of the "Once Upon a Great Adventure"-arc were also there, including Mekia Cox and Colin O'Donoghue.

      The third team, Team Wolf, had only filmed a few weeks in Stevenston with different actors each week including all the Storybrooke regulars.

      Lastly, the one that filmed the least (but also the most expensive!) filmed in Edinburgh (Scotland) and Dubrovnik (Croatia) was Team Dragon. The only actor seen there was Cody Fern. However, Brandon Soo Hoo, Freya Allan and Katherine McNamara were also there.

      Filming for 8B is expected to begin in late February with new locations including Germany, China and France.

    • Will we be seeing more of Granny? - ONCEFanandHappyHippo

      "Yes!", says actress Beverley Elliot. "In this second half we'll see a different Granny than the one we're used to see, a more vengeful and broken one, cause after all, one of the main themes of the season is the losing of hope, sanity and love, shown many times through the season with some examples being Pandora's first centric (and the second one will dive even deeper into her psychology), Quasimodo's tragedy and even Ariel, who we've seen broken before, in Once Upon a Great Adventure. And not only Granny will be present, but Granny's will have importance too, as teased during Pandora's fight with Howl. The question is: is it what we think, or is there another twist there?"

      Anything on Rapunzel (Tremaine)? - Winged Pig

      "Our beloved Gabrielle Anwar has many appearances booked in this upcoming half, the first one in the midseason premiere as shown in the trailer talking with Tiana", says showrunner Truest Believer. "One of the 'side-arcs' of this first half might give you a (big) clue on what Rapunzel's problems are now, and she'll have no other choice but to ask for help to an unlikely ally"

      What can you share about the future of Pandora? - Nick Branson

      "I think Pandora's ruthlessness was shown in the midseason finale when she brutally murdered [REDACTED], and in this upcoming half we'll dive deeper into her psychology, touching themes like mental health and the losing of innocence, and we'll of course see her arrival to Narnia, becoming the White Queen/Witch and her story with the New Wonderland characters", teases showrunner Truest Believer

      BONUS: I'm really excited to say that for what's left of the season, we'll see many Biblical references, so except allusions of Adam and Eve, Judas, Saint Peter and more! 

      I'll release an announcement tomorrow which I've been preparing for some time now. I hope you like it, and it'll surely make you more excited for this 8B.

    • 'Once Upon a Time' set to end with its eighth season InfoboxPlainTitle

      Yes, that's it - 'Once Upon a Time' is ending with Season 8.

      After Disney+ greenlit one more season of Once Upon a Time, fans were excited to see how the story would go from there after the creation of the United Realms. Over the course of the first half, we dived deeper into our beloved character's stories, like Regina, Henry and Cinderella, and also presented some new characters like Count Dracula, Charlotte LaBouff from 'The Princess and the Frog', Howl from 'Howl's Moving Castle' and the main villain, Pandora/White Witch from Narnia/White Queen from Alice Through the Looking Glass.

      According to showrunner Truest Believer, some characters could be counted as starring as well as the official ones, but there was not enough space, with those characters being Robin Hood/Margot, Emma Swan, Howl and for the second half, Fenrir Ulf, The Dragon, Maleficent and Aquata (yes, Ariel's sister)

      As the threat of the White Witch approaches the United Realms seeking to begin Ragnarök (Ragnarök, Apocalypse, call it what you want), showrunner Truest Believer and Disney+ released an statement confirming that Season 8 would be the end. 

      "We always knew that we'd be ending with Once Upon a Time with this season. I'm very happy with the outcome and how we included these amazing stories and at the same time gave a proper ending to others, i.e Camelot, Philip's soul (in 8B!) and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland (also in 8B!). There are no plans for any spin-off, movie or prequel. The 'Once' universe is officially ending in the twentieth episode of Season 8, and everyone involved in the show for this past decade will return for one final showdown a against a never-seen-before threat. It's been amazing to write and direct all these episodes, and we hope you like the last half of the series"

      The eighth season of Once Upon a Time returns this May for its final 8 episodes.

    • Oh, that's sad :/ Though as I'm starting to catch up today, I still have the entire season ahead of me so I still have a lot to read before it ends XD

    • I'm a bit surprised that we won't be getting anything after this. Well, that just makes the last episodes even more special!
