Magic is coming! And what the heck does that mean? Once Upon a Time producers and cast members teased season 2 at Comic-Con this morning.
The Panel: Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin, Lana Parrilla, Megan Ory, Emilie de Ravin, Adam Horowitz, and Edward Kitsiss
The Big Revelations:
+ Captain Hook is coming!
+ We will find out the identity of Henry’s father — and Jennifer Morrison knows who it is! “We talked about it early on,” she said. Kitsis’ tease? “I think Goofy is probably going to be Henry’s father,” he joked. “We gotta give Emma more credit here,” Morrison retorted.
+ We will learn the mythical identity of Dr. Whale this season.
+ There’s room for Kristin Bauer van Straten to return as Maleficent! “I didn’t see her body,” said Horowitz.
+ What DOES it mean that “Magic is coming”? “I wonder if we will find that out. I bet you we will have to watch season 2,” said Kitsis. “We don’t know if there’s anything to go back to.” Horowitz added: “Who knows if there’s anything there?”
+ The first few episodes will not disappoint. “I never could have conceived of the brilliance that is the first couple of scripts,” said Goodwin. “I can say that as an audience member it’s exactly what I’d want to see.” Added Kitsis: “The show is not going to change from the one you loved last year…we’re still going to go back and forth and meet new people along the way. ”
+ We will find out what happened to Mr. Gold’s son Bae this season.
Footage Screened: A no-face sneak peek at CAPTAIN HOOK, who was seen breaking into the pawnshop to steal (what else?) a hook from the glass cabinet! The producers saved this big moment for the very end of the panel, and it got a HUGE reaction from the crowd. Check it out below:
Earlier, they showed a very funny promo for the Once Upon a Time season 1 DVD that was a parody of a Match.com commercial. The commercial for Singlebrooke.com featured all the characters giving their web-cam dating profiles. Watch it here:
An additional tease can be found in this reel of opening credits. Can you spot it? (Four words: Jack and the Beanstalk)
The Winner of the Panel: Lana Parrilla, who talked about her fans inspiring her to quit smoking after many of them lost weight as part of the Evil Regals Get Healthy Challenge. “I saw them getting healthy, so I quit. That was six weeks ago.”
