If you're a fan of Once Upon a Time or Disney's newest musical hit Frozen, you now have your first look (unless you were at the OUAT panel at Comic-Con) at Elizabeth Lail in full Princess Anna gear!
The likeliness is pretty uncanny. It's a kind of a bummer that Anna's outfit is so much more drab than Elsa's though, don't you think? As a younger sister, I can confirm that this must be a hand-me-down type situation.
It’s good to finally get a glimpse of the main [Frozen](movie:411685) protagonist. Luckily we’ve had our fair share of Georgina Haig playing Elsa and Scott Michael Foster as Kristoff (and a couple good looks at Sven!) to tide us over in the meantime.
In other Once Upon a Time Season 4 casting news, Tyler Jacob Moore (Shameless) will appear the malevolent Prince Hans, and John Rhys-Davies (The Lord of the Rings) will play the Troll King Pabbie.
There has been a lot of speculation as to whether Elizabeth Mitchell actress will play Anna and Elsa's mother returned from sea, or the OG Snow Queen. In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, the show-runners, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, gave a couple of hints regarding the role of the Lost actress:
Kitsis: It’s one of the two things you mentioned!
Horowitz: We’ll find Elizabeth Mitchell’s character is connected both to the world of Arendelle and the world of Storybrooke.
Unfortunately, the one casting confirmation we won't be getting anytime soon, or at all, is one for everyone's favorite Frozen character. On whether or not Olaf would appear in the show, Kitsis and Horowitz said:
Kitsis: We’re not going to. We won’t be seeing Olaf.
Horowitz: It wouldn’t fit, and it’s so beautiful, his story in the movie. The story we want to tell doesn’t involve trying to expand upon that, nor do we think it should.
They're probably right to exclude him if the storyline isn't able to properly treat the silly snowman or progress the [Once Upon a Time](series:720994) storyline. But that doesn't make it any easier to bear!
