'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

Wonderland fans, your wish is close to coming true: The Knave of Hearts is headed to Storybrooke. Actor Michael Socha is expected to join Once Upon a Time as a series regular next season.

'Once Upon a Time in Wonderland' canceled: Which land should ABC spin-off next?

once-upon-a-time-in-wonderland

The fairy tale’s over. Once Upon a Time in Wonderland is not coming back next season.

This is no surprise given its performance, but ABC confirmed the news Friday. The network actually told fans Thursday night that next week’s episode was the “series finale” instead of “season finale,” but interestingly the news is just really taking off now (when “only” 3.3 million watch a show, guess it takes a while for the news to spread).

The Once Upon a Time spin-off was conceived as a stand-alone one-season story, but the hope was a new tale in the same world could launch next season. All the episodes will have aired. The show struggled throughout its run at 8 p.m. on Thursday nights. The Sunday night flagship series Once Upon a Time, while not officially ordered for next season, is fully expected to continue.

UPDATE: And just because Wonderland has been canceled doesn’t mean Once Upon couldn’t spin-off again. So that’s our poll: Which Disney-owned land should Once Upon spin-off next? READ FULL STORY
