An influx of new characters is coming to “Once Upon a Time” (OUAT) Season 5 and it’s not only that, though because the Season 5 trailer has been revealed as well. We really love what Comic-Con brings! Read below for the latest scoop on “OUAT” Season 5. Read on for more details.
According to Variety, Scottish princess Merida from Disney and Pixar’s “Brave” is coming to Storybrooke. She is the another character joining the ABC hit fantasy series in Dark Swan, who will be played by Jennifer Morrison.
Lancelot has also been confirmed to reappear on Season 5 of “OUAT” and the series will also introduced King Arthur, Merlin and Guinevere.
During the Comic-Con panel, “Once Upon a Time” executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz revealed a teaser for the new princess to watch out for in Season 5: Merida. It showcased her archery skills and was later on revealed that the character will be played by Scottish actress Amy Mason.
They also gave a sneak peak on Morrison’s Dark Swan since Emma has gone dark on the Season 4 finale of “OUAT.” We saw Emma in a cage being given a meal by a servant in a robe. “They said you were a monster,” said the servant and then Emma faced her and said, “Only on the inside.” She grabbed the servant through the bars of her cage to rip out his heart. Emma is really going to go really dark this upcoming episode of OUAT.
Many fans compare Emma’s dark side to The Dark One, which is Rumple. However, Kitsis was quick to clear this out in an interview with Entertainment Weekly.
“We are going to be exploring love and what happens when you use it as a weapon and what are the things that it makes you do. In the past, we’ve said love is the most powerful magic of all. It makes you do many things you normally wouldn’t think you would.” Kitsis said.
On the other hand, Morrison is very excited to be taking on a new side of her role in “OUAT” Season 5.
“I’m really excited. As an actor to start season five of a show doing something brand new is exciting… now I get to try something totally new and different and get to have the fun that these guys are having. There is some fun to the villainy, I’ve spent the whole hiatus digging out my thoughts about it… Emma went through a lot in her life, she’s always tried to be a good person and now she’s tethered to the darkness she’s free of that. I feel like she’s going to face some of the darkness and figure out how to overcome it and not just suppress it.” Morrison said.
“OUAT” Season 5 will premiere on Sept. 27, 2015 on ABC.
