Once Upon a Time brought an icy chill to Comic-Con on Saturday morning, showing off the first footage from Season 4 that features Frozen's Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Elsa (Georgina Haig).
In the clip, the girls hold hands outside their parents' gravestones. Elsa tells Anna that they would've been so proud of her, to which Anna replies they would've been proud of them both. Arendelle is bright and sunny—no winter in sight—when Elsa tells Anna that she has a surprise planned for her wedding.
The teaser was met with great applause (sadly, it's not yet available online), as were all the small tidbits that OUAT executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis dropped about the new season. Here's what we learned...
Why the Frozen storyline come about: Check out this clip from the panel to see a reenactment of how the writers' room decided to incorprate characters from the hit Disney movie:
Hope for RumBelle? Even though Rumple lied to Belle about the dagger so he could kill Zelena, Robert Carlyle still believes that Rumple genuinely loves her. "Rumple is such a complex character. He's an addict and he's addicted to power and addicted to magic," he said, noting that the dagger may come back into play again. "I think she's going to be quite devastated," Emilie de Ravin said of when Belle does eventually find out about his deception.
Will Emma become Target No. 1 again? After bringing Robin Hood's long-dead wife Marion back from the past, Emma will be desperate to keep Regina from turning back into her old self. "I can't apologize for saving a life and also I'm horrified that I've gotten in the way of Regina's happiness," Jennifer Morrison said of Emma's mindset. "We all become concerned that it might make [Regina] spiral back into some of her old ways. Emma is going to be very determined to keep her in the good place in her life and keep something positive between them."
Old habits die hard: Despite Emma trying to keep Regina calm, it won't be long before the Evil Queen resurfaces. In a special clip shown during Comic-Con, Regina is seen making her way to the deep recesses of the Storybrooke psychiatric hospital, where she seeks out Giancarlo Esposito's Sidney Glass. "There's someone standing in the way of my happiness," Regina says in the clip. "I need your help getting rid of them."
Emma and Hook's happiness: It sounds like things will be going pretty well for the couple, but that won't necessarily be the focus of the new season. "It's not really about her relationship," Horowitz said. "It's about her finding herself." Added Colin O'Donoghue, "He realized he could find love again."
And speaking of Hook, he will finally be getting a new outfit this season! As for Emma's former love, Kitsis noted, "Neal will always live in flashbacks and in our heart."
Henry's first job: With Neal dead, Mr. Gold will start to see Henry as a second chance at a relationship with his family. "Henry's going to go into the family business for a little bit," Kitsis said. "I'm talking about the pawn business. Mr. Gold looks upon Henry and says, 'This is my son's child,' and I think that he has a deeper affection."
Once Upon a Time Season 4 premieres Sunday, September 28 at 8pm on ABC.
