Once Upon A Time In Wonderland may have been cancelled, but the big wigs over at ABC aren't giving up on the idea of a OUAT spinoff!
Fans of the ABC fairytale drama are patiently awaiting for the show's fall return with an icy storyline involving the infamous Arendelle sisters, Elsa & Anna, but something more could stem from their initial appearance on the show!
Something like a possible TV spinoff of the beloved Disney tale!
ABC president Paul Lee revealed a Frozen spinoff isn't in the works at the moment, but he wouldn't put it past OUAT executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis!
"We don't have immediate plans for a Frozen spinoff, but they're so inventive, those two…
Eddy and Adam are endlessly inventive, so they have glints in their eyes of stories that they can spin for years to come. So it certainly doesn't rule out their ability or my ability to go beyond Once."
Let's hope the second time is a charm for these two!
Since Frozen is still pretty popular with the world, it makes perfect sense to capture the story for the show ASAP!
If any of you are thinking a Frozen storyline is way too soon for OUAT (shame on you for thinking so!), the ABC president thinks otherwise!
The head honcho of the network said:
"Absolutely not. Frozen is a wonderful asset. John Lassiter (executive producer of the Frozen film), himself flew up to Vancouver, he's integrally related to the way we're doing that. Adam and Eddie always have a twist on every story, so you can imagine their twist is going to be very different. But no, I think it's the perfect time. We're thrilled with it."
We can't imagine what kind of twist awaits us when OUAT makes its comeback!
September can't come soon enough!!
