Everyone's excited about Frozen coming to Once Upon a Time, including those at OUAT. The cast and executive producers hit up San Diego Comic-Con this year to tease what to expect from these new characters in Storybrooke.

Executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz and series star Jared Gilmore sat down with reporters to offer a taste of what's to come with these new characters in Storybrooke, discuss Henry after his experiences last season and more.

Not all titles featured on BuddyTV are available through Amazon Prime.

Check out the video interview with Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz:



Highlights from the interview:

  • We are going to meet Kristoff and Sven in the premiere, and yes, they got a real reindeer for Sven.
  • We'll meet Hans at some point.
  • There won't be a version of Olaf. "We felt like his story was so perfect in the movie, and it wasn't fitting into our plan," Horowitz explained.
  • "They're not going to be villains," Horowitz said of the Frozen characters. "We are trying to be true to the characters as they appeared in the movie. What we're more interested in is not changing them but in seeing how they fit into our Once Upon a Time world."
  • "For us, we loved a character like Anna, who's a beacon of hope and love, and what happens when she meets Rumplestiltskin?" Kitsis teased.

Check out the video interview with Jared Gilmore:



Highlights from the interview:

  • He "was blown away" when he saw Frozen was coming.
  • "I think either Henry actually saw the movie while he was in New York or they were also in the storybook or they could be completely new people that Henry hasn't read about or seen and it would be completely new to him."
  • He thinks the movie exists in the real world of Once Upon a Time.
  • He likes the 11-episode mini-seasons they've been doing.
  • "I think Henry's matured and he's grown up a lot over the seasons. Last season, he was alone, he didn't have his family, he had to fend for himself. Now, it'll be interesting when he's back with his family but he's learned to fend for himself."
