Everything's been going quite good in the newly formed United Realms with Queen Regina in charge, but even though some people think of the union as a blessing, it benefited other's evil plans.

Some months after the end of Season Seven, a beast begins attacking the inhabitants of the United Realms in an attempt to grow terror and steal something from the heroes for a higher power in a far, far away realm, and Regina, Henry, Ella, Alice in company won't just stay there. Meanwhile, the famous Count Dracula leads an expedition to a mysterious realm in search of his loved one whose ship sinked almost a decade ago, and Tiana, Wish Hook, Wish Ariel, Juju and more go with him in search for another friend. Will Regina solve the mystery of the attacks? What does the attacker want? What's up with New Neverland? All this answered in Disney+'s Once Upon a Time.
