Disney Once Again notes:

Note: We totally forgot to mention the Aurora or Phillip character in Once Upon a Time. Sorry about that.

Intro Credit lettering/art

There is a storybook opening, but no Once Upon a Time in a book. However, there was Once in the title song, “Once Upon a Dream”.

In the opening narration, it mentioned, “Their (The King and Queen) wish was granted,” and Aurora was born.

Vibrant colors


Awesome 3D look to the crowd, changing the timing of each level of horses, people etc to make it look natural (That people and animals traveled at different speeds).

A number of great flydowns with the multiplane camera.

Awesome dreamy sequences when the good fairies gave their gifts of beauty and song. Fantasia-esque (1940).

Maleficent – Evil Fairy. The Queen is afraid of Maleficent, “You’re not offended?”


The scepter click on the floor was weird sounding.

Meriwether – A Ray of Hope. Changing death to sleep, until true love’s kiss will break the curse.

The animation is a work of art. Spinning Wheel fire. Reflections in the castle.

“Our magic doesn’t work that way”

Even walls have ears. Like mirrors in OUAT.

Turn the princess into a flower (Shadowing of Beauty and the Beast), but Maleficent will send frost.

Flora’s new plan will not include magic. Adam and Eddie get the idea from this?

Maleficent’s Forbidden Mountains – similar name to Tolkien’s Mount Doom.


Maleficent’s goofy troops.

Maleficent told her Raven to search for a maiden with lips Red as the Rose. Another tie back to Snow White?

Another princess that cleans, and a shot through the window.

Was Once Upon a Time almost ready for Benedict Cumberbatch?

Way back in Season One of Once Upon a Time we met Sheriff Graham, played by (Now Fifty Shades of Gray star) Jamie Dornan, who turned out to be…


#Spoiler Alert if you haven’t seen Season One yet#

jamie dornan

The Huntsman, but Sheriff Graham almost resembled another sleuth in Fairy Tale Story Character Land.

The Hound Of The Baskervilles-17

Once Upon a Time is broadening its universe beyond fairy tales this season, adding a historical legend (Mulan) and literary creations (Capt. Hook, Lancelot). So who else might possibly show up in Storybrooke? We ran some Disney-owned and public domain characters past showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz to get the scoop…Sherlock Holmes? Kitsis: “Here’s something interesting. Originally the sheriff was Sherlock Holmes. He was going to be a detective and his curse was he was in a town with no mystery. So he was this bored sheriff. And there was a rights issue so we could not get it.”
Everybody else is doing it. Horowitz: “Everybody else overcame it.” Kitsis: “But now we’re so in love with the BBC’s Sherlock, I don’t want to even play in that arena. We’ll never have Sherlock unless Benedict Cumberbatch wants to come on.” From http://insidetv.ew.com/2012/10/21/once-upon-jack-sparrow/

Once Upon a Time Secret – It almost was more Battlestar Galactica-ish

We are very used to the incredible Jennifer Morrison filling the role of Emma Swan on ABC TV’s ‘Once Upon a Time’.



However, the role almost went to someone who was more used to warring in space, instead of breaking curses. According to Hypeable, Katie Sackhoff (Starbuck in Battlestar Galactica) talked about reading for the role of Emma in ‘Once Upon a Time';

There were two that I loved. One was Once Upon A Time, and one was Longmire. I went in five times on Once Upon A Time. I took one meeting on Longmire, and I met Greer Shephard and I said, “I want this job because of that woman. I love this woman.” So, I walked away from Once Upon A Time and focused on Longmire. It was just those two jobs. Those were the only two pilots I loved that year. From http://www.hypable.com/2012/05/28/battlestar-galactica-katee-sackoff-emma-once-upon-a-time/

What would have thought of Emma being played by Katie Sackhoff?

Disney Once Again notes:


Beginning another book – Once Upon a Time

Step Mother – cold


More multi plane camera goodness

Connection, talking and interaction with animals

If you tell a wish, it won’t come true

Have faith in your dream.

As long as you keep believing, the dream that you wish will come true.

You can change your life by believing in a secret dream.

They can’t order me to stop dreaming.

Another instance of animals helping her clean and get ready for the day. Singing as she takes a shower.

Cinderella is kind to the animals.

Jack has a creepy voice.

The animation is more cartoonish, and less like a panting come to life (Like Snow White).

LUcifer the cat. Funny.

Bruno dreaming.

Cinderella tries to find the good in people and cats.

Snow White and Cinderella wears Danish shoes.

Cinderella takes care of the family in the house and feeds all the animals.

Lucifer was like a king. Licking the milk one drop of a time.

We care about mice, instead of wanting to get rid of them.

At Disneyland, Cinderella doesn’t have a ride or attraction, but the castle yes.

“Close the door, Cinderella,” When a boss tells you to close the door, is never a good thing

The step-sisters ringing bells and calling Cinderella.

Lucifer deserved those awful step-sisters “practicing”

What a great scene fading into Cinderella singing the song.



I love the mice making the dress, but can they put Blu Rays back in the right case?

The sash looked like toilet paper
