Because of the long lead time on animated shows, The Simpsons likely didn’t have an opportunity to sneak a Frozen gag into last year’s Christmas episode, so the Fox comedy is doing it this year, a little begrudgingly.

On Sunday’s Once Upon a Time, Emma (Jennifer Morrison) will find herself in a dangerously icy situation as Elsa (Georgina Haig) continues to rampage through Storybrooke, accidentally trapping them in an ice cave in her quest to find her sister, Anna (Elizabeth Lail). Fortunately, this will help bond Emma and Elsa, who have a lot more in common than fans may have realized. Below, Morrison teases what’s in store for the dynamic duo, Emma’s future with Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) and how Emma’s past will provide new insight into the Once puzzle.
It’s about to get very chilly in Storybrooke.
When Once Upon a Time returns for its fourth season, Frozen’s Elsa will make her way into town after spilling out of an urn that was locked in Rumpelstiltskin’s vault in the season finale. Suffice it to say, she will not take too kindly to strangers and will quickly lose control of her powers, sending Storybrooke into the next ice age. With that being said, EW created a Frozen-themed drinking game to make watching the show’s return even more fun.
Disclaimer: Yes, we know Frozen is for youngsters. They can chug apple juice, while those old enough should responsibly imbibe in a frosty beverage.
Will Elsa find a way to control her powers? It sounds like that’ll be the goal when Once Upon a Time brings Frozen‘s characters to life on ABC this fall.
Storybrooke is about to be Frozen over.
When it comes to reindeer, you know at least one. Technically, you probably know nine. But now, you definitely know 10, because a new charming caribou has entered the wintry ring. This fall… coming to a TV near you… it’s… SVEN.
The lovable reindeer is part of a whole slew of characters from the smash Disney movie Frozen, who will be joining the cast of ABC’s fairy tale saga Once Upon a Time for a large arc this fall. Snow Queen Elsa, friendly neighborhood mountain man Kristoff, wide-eyed bridezilla Anna, and the villainous (both in personality and in sideburns) Hans are among the ensemble who will join the show when season four hits the air on September 28. And, of course, the actors playing them (Georgina Haig, Scott Michael Foster, Elizabeth Lail, and Tyler Jacob Moore) will also be involved somehow. The storyline will also feature Elizabeth Mitchell in a still-mysterious role and John Rhys-Davies as patriarchal troll Pabbie.
Finally, after months of anticipation and Tumblring, ABC has unveiled the first official photos of some of these Frozen favorites in costume. We don’t know what’s going on, exactly—the Frozen arc picks up some time after the film’s events have already occurred—but we can sure guess! READ FULL STORY
The introduction of Frozen‘s Elsa really was just the beginning: After her blonde braid made its appearance in the Once Upon a Time finale, there have been numerous other chilly additions to the cast, from Anna and Kristoff to, most recently, a troll king and a human prince.
EW has confirmed that actor John Rhys-Davies, who played Gimli in the Lord of the Rings series, has joined the Once cast as the voice of Pabbie the Troll King, with Shameless‘ Tyler Jacob Moore officially signing on as the morally questionable Prince Hans.
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Anna better look out, because a Frozen prince is headed to Once Upon a Time.
EW has confirmed that OUAT is in the process of casting for the role of Prince Hans, another name that Frozen fans will recognize. In the film, Hans was the charming prince who seemingly swept Anna off her feet. But let’s just say that he was later revealed to have some questionable motives. According to TVLine, which first reported the news, we will meet Hans in the third episode of season 4.
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
Season Finale Awards: 'Once Upon a Time' creators on Regina's misfortune, casting Elsa, and that Hook-Emma hook-up
One of the big winners of EW.com’s fifth annual Season Finale Awards (voted on by readers like you!) was Once Upon a Time, ABC’s fantasy fairy tale which took home five awards* including Best Romantic Cliffhanger, Funniest Moment in a Drama, and Biggest Regret That I Didn’t See It, I Just Heard or Read About It.
To accept the awards, show creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz called in to Entertainment Weekly Radio on Sirius XM 105, where we quizzed them about all things season finale — including that steamy kiss between Hook and Emma, the misfortune of Regina, and what’s coming next in season four.
On Hook being jealous of Hook (Funniest Moment in a Drama): “I think all of us inside have jealousy and sometimes that even includes ourselves in past lives. For us, we kind of look at Captain Hook as our Han Solo. We say he’s Han Solo with guyliner.”
On the Robin-Regina-Marian triangle (Best Romantic Cliffhanger): “[Lana Parilla, who plays Regina] was like, ‘Oh, I’m really enjoying this, I’m falling in love,’ and we said, ‘Great, enjoy it, because we are going to destroy you.'”
On surprising fan love for Regina: “What’s amazing for us is that this is a woman who started the show trying to kill all the lead characters, and now everyone’s mad at us for ripping away her boyfriend.”
On whether Elsa, whose arrival was teased in the final moment of the finale, is more Frozen or fairy tale (Biggest Regret That I Didn’t See It…): “For us, I think this is Elsa from Frozen. That was kind of the inspiration… Will there be our own elements put to it? Yes. Like all things like we do with Snow White or Peter Pan or Captain Hook, we take our own kind of twist on it but remaining faithful to the actual essence of the character.”
