Once Upon a Time returns to our screens this Sunday, taking us to the new world of Neverland. But the characters of Peter Pan are not the only ones to appear this season. The creators announced they would finally be bringing Ariel (JoAnne Garcia Swisher) and her Prince (Gil McKinney) to the Once world and TV Guide revealed a first look at the pair.
TV Guide also got the oppurtunity to talk to executive producer Edward Kitsis and the the characters; “Once we realized we were going to Neverland, it felt like the perfect place to see Ariel.” So could Ariel end up in Mermaid Lagoon? Or did she simply get scooped up in the vortex which took the Jolly Rodger from Storybrooke to Neverland? After all, she was in Storybrooke in the promo.
The episode we will first see the mermaid is entitled Ariel, and her story is to hopefully incorporate some of the classic moments from the 1987 Disney film (dinglehopper included hopefully).
The villain Ursula is also planned to make an appearance but as who or what is not yet known. No one has been cast in the roll (was far as we know) after all. Kitsis ven commented when asked saying;Â ”In a world where our crocodile turns out to be Rumplestiltskin, you never know what might happen.”
Once Upon a Time returns to ABC, September 29 8/7c
