“Once Upon a Time” Stirs Things Up at San Diego Comic-Con 2017

Just one more week until Once Upon a Time returns for Season 7 on ABC!  And just in case you missed the updates, here are my highlights from the stars and showrunners at San Diego Comic-Con.

This article was originally published on LaughingPlace.com.

“Oncers” packed Ballroom 20 at San Diego Comic-Con on July 20th to see the stars of Once Upon a Time.  Yvette Nicole Brown returned as host, trying to get show creators (from right) Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, and writer/producer David H. Goodman to spill the beans about the upcoming Season 7.

Returning favorites included Colin O’Donoghue (Hook), Lana Parrilla (Regina), and Robert Carlyle (Mr. Gold / Rumpelstiltskin).  This year, we were introduced to three new characters: Cinderella (Dania Ramirez from Devious Maids), older Henry Mills (Andrew J. West from The Walking Dead), and Lady Tremaine (Gabrielle Anwar from Burn Notice and The Tudors).

The showrunners shared a gag reel from OUAT Season 6.

Once Upon a Time returned to San Diego Comic-Con for the sixth year, delighting a packed Ballroom 20 on the most popular day of the convention.  Spoiler alert! If you haven’t seen all the episodes of last season, we dive right in at the panel.  We review the highlights of Season 5 as we prepare for the next mind-twisting season our producers have in store.

Yvette Nicole Brown moderated this panel, offering a refreshing perspective (as she herself is a huge fan of OUAT).  Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (executive producers) returned with favorites from the cast: Colin O’Donoghue (Killian / Captain Hook), Jennifer Morrison (Emma Swan), Lana Parilla (Regina/ Evil Queen), Josh Dallas (David / Prince Charming), Emilie DeRavin (Belle), Rebecca Mader (Zelena/Wicked Witch), Jared Gilmore (Henry / the Author).

Notably absent were Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White / Mary Margaret) and Robert Carlyle (Rumplestiltskin).

A Review of Season 5

An emotional Season 5 followed our heroes’ journey from Camelot to the realm of Hades in the Underworld.  Emma embraced her role as Dark Swan.  King Arthur was not as honorable as history recalls, obsessed with his broken Excalibur sword fragment, and striving to re-forge the blade with the Dark One’s dagger.
