FROZEN came to ONCE UPON A TIME in the season 4 premiere, and while Elsa didn’t fare too well in Storybrooke, the premiere offered up some fun teases about what’s in store this season. I spoke with ONCE UPON A TIME co-creator Eddy Kitsis about the path to meeting the author behind the fairytale book, Regina’s set-back, and more…
There’s a fantastic tease that Regina is going to find the author of the fairytale book. How will that play out this season, and will that be an answer we get sooner versus later?
Edward Kitsis: That one’s a bigger arc. Some seeds that were planted will be dealt with right away, and others will take a longer journey. The end result is you will find out who wrote the book.
Is the author someone we’ve seen before?
EK: You’ll have to wait and see.
So far, with the exception of Elsa, the FROZEN characters are contained to the flashbacks. Will we see any of them pop up in Storybrooke?
EK: The flashbacks are a journey to find Anna, and where that takes them is what the first 11 [episodes] is about.
Elsa caused a bit of destruction, but didn’t really interact with our characters. Who will she first come into contact with in a meaningful way?
EK: It’s going to be Emma.
