'Once Upon a Time' is casting Prince Hans from 'Frozen'

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.

The addition of Hans brings the Frozen character count on OUAT to four, following the casting of Elsa, Anna, and Kristoff.

Once Upon a Time returns Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.

ABC: Here's why 'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' didn't work out

once-upon-a-time-in-wonderland.jpg

ABC Entertainment Group president Paul Lee has a theory about why Once Upon a Time in Wonderland didn’t work out. The network executive suggests the Once Upon a Time spin-off was undermined by its time slot. Originally, ABC planned to run the Alice in Wonderland-inspired fantasy series during Once‘s winter hiatus. It ultimately opted to air Wonderland Thursdays at 8 p.m. leading into Grey’s Anatomy instead—which has been a tough hour for the network in recent years, with several shows struggling to gain traction in the slot (particularly up against CBS’ top-rated The Big Bang Theory). This fall, ABC will execute its original plan by running fairy tale musical comedy Galavant in the OUAT “gap.”

“I would have given [Wonderland] a better chance had I done what we’re doing with Galavant and put it in the gap,” Lee told reporters at the Television Critics Association’s press tour in Beverly Hills on Tuesday. “We wanted to build a night of empowered women, and we were excited about the show, disappointed we didn’t bring an audience to it … I think we should have tried that one in the gap. I think we would have had a better chance with that.” READ FULL STORY

'Once Upon a Time' scoop: Elsa from 'Frozen' cast

Ready to meet the real live Queen Elsa of Arendelle?

ABC’s Once Upon a Time has filled the coveted role, the show’s version of Disney’s snow queen from last year’s animated mega-hit Frozen.

Actress Georgina Haig has landed the part, sources say. She’s probably best known to TV viewers from her arc on Fox’s Fringe (playing Henrietta “Etta” Bishop,  the daughter of Peter Bishop and Olivia Dunham). She can also currently be seen on the CBS summer drama Reckless.

The character is loosely based on “The Snow Queen,” the Danish fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen. Earlier this week, newcomer Elizabeth Lail was cast in the show as Elsa’s younger sister Anna, and Greek alum Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff, the rugged mountain man who falls for Anna. The Frozen arc on Once Upon is expected to pick up after the events of the film.

Once Upon revealed that the queen with the frosty touch, voiced by Broadway actress Idina Menzel in the film, will be added to the show’s fairy tale ensemble during the show’s May finale (clip below). READ FULL STORY

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.”

'Once Upon a Time' postmortem: Showrunners talk chilly villainess and the future of Storybrooke

EW was desperate for more information about Sunday night’s Once Upon a Time season closer — and happily, showrunners Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz didn’t give us the cold shoulder. Read on to learn all about why things shook out as they did — and how the pair decided to bring in the show’s newest Big Bad. (Or, to be more accurate, its new Big Misunderstood. Caution: Spoilers ahead!)

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Take me through the decision to add Elsa to Once.
Eddy Kitsis: We saw the movie, and collectively, the whole entire writers’ room just loved it. It was our favorite film. What we loved so much about Elsa was she was perceived to be a villain, but of course we understood she was misunderstood. And the only one who understood that was her sister. That was a very thematic thing for us, which is a misunderstood character who everyone perceives to be bad. READ FULL STORY
