Once Upon A Time’s fairytale residents will have plenty to navigate when season 3 premieres. Neverland will be a whole new world for our core players and according to Eddie Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, a leader must be choosen. In addition to the new characters that Neverland will bring, fresh faces with complicated pasts will be woven into Once’s already fantastic storyline.
Regina’s New Love Interest
“It’s a side of the character of Regina we’ve only touched upon in the first two seasons,” executive producer Adam Horowitz says. “We’re excited to see more of that and more importantly to explore her capacity for love.”
The Jolly Roger & It’s Undetermined Leader
“You’ve got five people on a ship who all think they’re leaders, so we’ll have to see how they react when they face their first obstacle,” series cocreator Eddy Kitsis hints. Adds Adam Horowitz, “There’s certainly some friction, but there’s also a shared goal they have to achieve” — finding Henry. “The question is: Will they achieve it together, separately or at all?”
Speaking of The Jolly Roger, Tinkerbell will have a connection to not one, but two characters aboard!
The fellas revealed that the iconic fairy and our swoon-worthy Captain Hook have a complicated Neverland history together, but we’re still left guessing at Tink’s other tie-in. So who could it be? The obvious choice would be that she’s in Rumplestilskin’s magical Rolodex, but we think it’s going to be a bit more twisted than that.
