No, not in ice (well, maybe not!) but by stars of the Disney movie Frozen coming to Storybrooke.
I admit, I haven’t seen Frozen so when a woman in a blue and silver flowing dress emerged from the urn that Hook and Emma accidentally brought back from the past, I had no idea who she was. Thanks to some spoilers, it apparently was Elsa, the Queen of Arendelle from the Disney hit. She will be featured next season though other characters from the film will also be appearing.
According to TV Line, season four of ‘Once Upon A Time’ will feature ‘Frozen’ stars Anna and Kristoff as well as Elsa. Casting is currently under way for the trio and the publication stumbled upon their character breakdowns:
- ELSA | The Queen of Arendelle, this late-20s/early-30s beauty long struggled to control her “chilling” powers and even unleashed upon her town an eternal winter during her coronation. Ultimately, she realized that the key to controlling her powers is love — namely, her bond with sister Anna — and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again (in which instance Vancouver weather could rival Winnipeg’s!)
- ANNA | Elsa’s slightly younger sister is a fun-loving, fearless optimist who often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit. She values her relationship with her sister above all else.
- KRISTOFF | This handsome, hearty, salt-of-the-earth ice cutter spent most of his life alone (unless you count his reindeer). He has a sometimes-gruff demeanor that can hide his deep love for Anna and her sister Elsa. When we first meet Kristoff on ‘OUAT’, he is adjusting to life at the castle — including sleeping indoors for the first time in his life.
Sounds a bit like Elsa’s story is similar to the recent evolution of Regina’s in Once Upon a Time – love changing her dark magic to light magic (though the return of Marion may well spell the end of her happiness with Robin of Sherwood!).
Season 4 promises to give us yet more surprises.
