Once Upon a Time,
Season 3 will be introducing at least one new character, exploring Neverland and the complicated, Peter Pan. Read on to get all the announcements and teasers from the Once Upon a Time San Diego Comic-Con 2013 panel.
Ginnifer Goodwin (Mary Margaret)
Jennifer Morrison (Emma)
Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold)
Josh Dallas (David)
Emilie de Ravin (Belle)
Colin O'Donoghue (Hook)
Michael Raymond-James (Neal)
Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (Co-creators and Executive Producers)
A New Character: Probably the most exciting announcement came at the very end of the panel as the audience was treated to a Once Upon a Time, Season 3 teaser clip revealing that Ariel from The Little Mermaid will be introduced as a character. The clip showed Leroy (Grumpy) sitting on a park bench eating his lunch when someone creeps up behind him. We see a female's hand reach in and grab a fork. Leroy then runs after her, seeing a dress left behind and a red headed girl popping up from the water. She then dives in revealing her mermaid fin. Take a look:
On Neverland: There's a lot to explore about Neverland and Peter Pan. The cast has only seen the first script and the Executive Producers were pretty tight lipped on the look and what we'll see. But there will be different areas, some that we remember from the book and some with their own Once Upon a Time spin.
On Peter Pan: Horowitz points out that he "has a complicated motivation." And Kitsis adds, he "might be frightening to some."
On Tinkerbell: We can't go to Neverland without seeing Tink. One teaser the EPs were willing to mention is that apart from Hook, Tinkerbell will have a surprising connection to someone else on the panel. So take your guesses!
Anton/Giant: We could see Jorge Garcia in season 3 but the real focus is on the Jolly Roger gang. So we'll have to wait and see.
Gold and Belle: The Executive producers remind us that Gold is on a suicide mission in Neverland. So the real question is, will these two ever be reunited?
