PICKED UP TO SERIES:
ABC’s Once Upon A Time is officially a franchise as the network just ordered spinoff Once Upon A Time In Wonderland to series, joining the original series, which also was renewed.
One of the few acceptable decisions ABC has made today. :o:up:
 
TV LINE's article has what looks to be a first look image. :up:

Also...
The set-up for the offshoot, which has been envisioned as a limited-run standalone series to bridge the original show’s winter hiatus: In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice (played by Sophie Lowe, Beautiful Kate) tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole. An invisible cat, a hookah smoking caterpillar and playing cards that talk are just some of the fantastic things she’s seen during this impossible adventure. Surely this girl must be insane and her doctors aim to cure her with a treatment that will make her forget everything. Alice seems ready to put it all behind her — especially the painful memory of the genie she fell in love with and lost forever, the handsome and mysterious Cyrus (Peter Gadiot, The Forbidden Girl) — but deep down she knows this world is real and just in the nick of time, the sardonic Knave of Hearts (Michael Socha, This Is England) and the irrepressible White Rabbit (voiced by John Lithgow, Third Rock From The Sun) save her from a doomed fate. Emma Rigby (Hollyoaks) plays the Queen of Hearts.
 
I just noticed they have John Lithgow as the voice of the White Rabbit, too. Wonder when that changed from Paul Reubens...
 
I hope the Cheshire cat plays a significant role.
 
Same. I was interested seeing the cheshire cat referenced when there's been no word of any casting for the character, but maybe he just didn't factor into the short presentation they did.
 
It's designed so there won't be as many start-and-stop gaps like there were this season, so hopefully. The numbers were fine until they came back in january for, like, three episodes and then were immediately followed by another break.
 
Depending on how it plays out, I can dig it. This is the OUAT-verse, after all, so a few twists on the lore are to be expected.
 
Cool to see This Is England and Being Human UK actor Michael Socha getting work.

Like most Hollyoakes soap opera actors Emma Rigby is hot but not a great actress. She is fine for the pantomime soap style acting of Once Upon A Time though.
 
Subscribing to this thread because heck yeah I'm watching this! I hope we get Jefferson once Sebastian Stan is done with Captain America 2.

I'm quite happy with Socha being cast as well. Series 4 is the only one of the UK Being Human that I've watched all the way through (yet) and Tom was one of my favorite parts.
 
I wonder if Sydney Glass was actually Aladdin's genie or jafar after he became one?

It'd be interesting if Alice fell for Aladdin's genie
 
Let me subscribe to this thread. :cmad: :up:
 
I kinda hope we get a sneak peek for this tonight too, but I doubt it.
 
The trailer looks AMAZING!! Whoa!!
 
Looks good. But I do wish that Alice was a child when she first went to Wonderland. And of course it was put on Sundays after Ouat instead of abcs death slot where I think scandal was the only Show in the past 4-5 years to survive it.
 
I'm in love with what I'm seeing. :up:

It's hilarious how skanked out the Red Queen is, though. And we thought Regina had risque wardrobe...
 
So I guess the idea to use this show as a bridge between the fall finale and spring premiere for OUAT is out the door.
