ABC’s Once Upon a Time first look at Rapunzel.

"We went a little darker and freakier," says executive producer Edward Kitsis. "A little more horror story in the vein of [the 2004 movie] The Grudge.”

The long-locked damsel played by Alexandra Metz will be visited in her tower by Prince Charming as well as a mysterious hooded menace.

Unfortunately, it appears that Rapunzel will not be a recurring character on the show. As appears to be par for the course with characters of color on the show, from what I have read.

Rapunzel is heading to Storybrooke.

The Originals actress Alexandra Metz has been cast as the fairy-tale character in the third season on ABC’s Once Upon a Time, The Hollywood Reporter confirms.

Rapunzel will be introduced into the Once Upon a Time universe in the 14th episode, as TVLine first reported. Metz currently is booked for one episode. (SOURCE)



Naturally, the OUAT fandom is already losing their shit over this casting. It's probably just gonna be Lancelot all over again tho.

Don't expect to see Mulan in a pretty getup when we first meet Disney's warrior princess in Once Upon a Time's September 30 premiere. She'll be armored up and battle-ready.


"I go on a journey with Prince Phillip to find his princess, Aurora," teases Mulan's portrayer, Jamie Chung (Sucker Punch). "There's this evil spirit that's moving and my character ends up bonding with Sleeping Beauty. And as you've heard, Captain Hook is joining us."


So might sword overpower hook? "Definitely," says Chung, who mastered her sword-wielding skills on ABC Family's Samurai Girl. "If you compare the size and length of my sword to his hook, who do you think has the longer reach?" [SOURCE]


Girl, you look ready to fall over...
