SDCC 2013: Once Upon a Time Interviews


In all of the interviews I have conducted, none ever seemed as strange to me as when I got to sit down with the cast and creators of Once Upon a Time to discuss what happened in the shows second season, and what we can expect from the third.

We were able to talk to creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, and cast: Ginnifer Goodwin, Emilie De Ravin, Lana Parrilla, Robert Carlyle, Josh Dallas, Colin O’Donoghue, and Michael Raymond-James. The complete interviews can be found below, but they do contain spoilers if you are not caught up on season 2. Cannot say I didn’t warn you!

The interviews were strange to me because I never thought I would find myself at a table talking to grown men about their expectations of Neverland, or what kind of drama we could expect to see between Captain Hook and the Evil Queen. It was strange, but awesome. It would have been better had the cast and creators not be so tight-lipped about what we can expect.

But what we do know is the cast is divided between Storybrooke and Hook’s ship on its way to Neverland to rescue young Henry who was taken there by an “evil” Peter Pan. What we don’t know how long it will take them, or if the gang on the ship, which consists of: Snow, Emma, Charming, Regina/Evil Queen, Hook, and Rumple can set aside their differences to save Henry. We already know that Hook and Rumple have had to let things go, if you will, but who’s to say how long that could last?

Co-Creator Edward Kitsis said it best when he called the group a literal “Boatload of leaders who all want to be in charge”… The drama is basically guaranteed.  Add that with the big question, the one nobody would answer: Will magic work the same in Neverland?

You can watch the videos of all of the interviews below with profuse thanks to our gracious friends (and table buddies) at Whedonopolis for allowing us to publish their video footage. Ours was a wash due to the cast being backlit with the San Diego sun flooding in the room. When you have a moment, check out Whedonopolis’ website, we highly recommend it!
