OUAT – So, they changed the color of the ending smoke. Hmmm

It appears the Once Upon a Time producers changed the color of the ending smoke from green to purple.

Very interesting. I wonder what that change means for the story.

And fans of the ABC freshman were not the only ones caught off guard by the game-changing twist.

“There was some talk about the curse being broken, but I didn’t believe it until I read it [in the script], because [series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis] are tricky that way,” Lana Parrilla recently shared with TVLine. “They don’t really tell you much, but I like that about them!”

Upon seeing the final edit of the finale — with CGI’d smoke flowing out of the well and across the land — Parrilla remarked, “It was awesome…. Unreal.” And almost green à la the ominous cloud that crept across fairytale land when the dark curse was first uncorked. “But at the last minute they changed it to purple, which is more symbolic… a better link to something ‘magical.’”

Disney – Lost, Disney and Once Upon a Time article

A Fairy Tale Partnership

Who mystified you with “Lost”? Who put you on the Grid with “Tron: Legacy”? And who is going to take you to the fairy-tale world and back again this fall? In all three cases, the answer is the writing team of Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. In the years since their first meeting as film students, the duo has contributed to some of the most imaginative blockbusters to entertain audiences on screens big and small.

Now they are about to premiere their most enchanting project yet – “Once Upon a Time,” debuting October 23 on ABC. Imagine a fairy-tale world, the Enchanted Forest … and then imagine that its inhabitants get kicked out of it by the nefarious Evil Queen and get sent to the one place where there are no happy endings: our world. Now the denizens of the small town of Storybrooke, Maine, have no idea who they really are and the Evil Queen is triumphant, unless the daughter of Snow White and Prince Charming accepts her destiny and unravels the curse.

Disney – OUAT costumes in DCA

Besides the new entry gate and Cars Land, other new items have magically appeared in Disney’s California Adventure.

If you make your way over to the Off the Page store (in the windows along the sidewalk) located in the Hollywood Pictures backlot section, you will see some very cool “Once Upon a Time” costumes, and a very important book.

Maleficent’s dress (and hair horns), Prince Charming leather costume, Queen Regina’s dress she work prominently in the Pilot are there.

as well as Snow White’s dress she work in the Pilot (and in “A Land Without Magic”)

and Henry’s magical Fairy Tale book.

The reflection in the window was a tough foe, but we did our best, here are some more shots.

Note: See the gold around her waist. Mr. Gold’s influence is never too far from Snow White, it seems.

FTC – Snow White and Rose Red

Aleara is back reading another tale we’ve learned a bit about on Once Upon a Time, Snow White and Rose Red.



As we have mentioned before, these fairy tales will not be what we seen in Disney cartoons. Original version (as known to us) will be read.
