So it’s not a cast panel (like I kept thinking it might be), but at least it’s some Once Upon a Time and Once Upon a Time in Wonderland magic at the “Comic Con” of Disney, D23.
On Saturday, August 10 at 1:00 p.m. at Stage 23, Executive Producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz will be featured at a panel titled “ABC’s Once Upon A Time: Behind The Fairytale”. They will discuss Season 3 of Once Upon a Time and the new series, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland.
Note: We may see surprise guests in the panel. It does happen sometimes when schedules allow. Just sayin’
There will be a Q&A moderated by Jeffrey Epstein, The title of the Press Release mentions “Exclusive Screenings” which may be a general title for the D23 Expo Press Releases, by the showrunners may bring along some surprise footage to show to generate more buzz. We’ll see.
If that wasn’t enough – guests of the Expo can;
Board Captain Hook’s Jolly Roger on the D23 Expo Show floor,
See original props from the set,
See costumes (not on display at DCA (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Disney_California_Adventure_Park) I would imagine),
Visit the Evil Queen’s heart vault. There are tales that a surprise awaits when you unlock a box from Regina’s wall of hearts.
