Disney Once Again notes:

Note: We totally forgot to mention the Aurora or Phillip character in Once Upon a Time. Sorry about that.

Intro Credit lettering/art

There is a storybook opening, but no Once Upon a Time in a book. However, there was Once in the title song, “Once Upon a Dream”.

In the opening narration, it mentioned, “Their (The King and Queen) wish was granted,” and Aurora was born.

Vibrant colors


Awesome 3D look to the crowd, changing the timing of each level of horses, people etc to make it look natural (That people and animals traveled at different speeds).

A number of great flydowns with the multiplane camera.

Awesome dreamy sequences when the good fairies gave their gifts of beauty and song. Fantasia-esque (1940).

Maleficent – Evil Fairy. The Queen is afraid of Maleficent, “You’re not offended?”


The scepter click on the floor was weird sounding.

Meriwether – A Ray of Hope. Changing death to sleep, until true love’s kiss will break the curse.

The animation is a work of art. Spinning Wheel fire. Reflections in the castle.

“Our magic doesn’t work that way”

Even walls have ears. Like mirrors in OUAT.

Turn the princess into a flower (Shadowing of Beauty and the Beast), but Maleficent will send frost.

Flora’s new plan will not include magic. Adam and Eddie get the idea from this?

Maleficent’s Forbidden Mountains – similar name to Tolkien’s Mount Doom.


Maleficent’s goofy troops.

Maleficent told her Raven to search for a maiden with lips Red as the Rose. Another tie back to Snow White?

Another princess that cleans, and a shot through the window.

OUAT – Aurora and The Spinning Wheel spotted

In “Broken,” next to the bed that Sleeping Beauty was sleeping on, we see a spinning wheel:

Even though Fairy Tales get twisted in Once Upon a Time, this actually matches up with one of the versions of Sleeping Beauty (and the Disney film):

Now, you don’t suppose Rumpelstiltskin had anything to do with that spinning wheel, do you? 🙂

OUAT – Dragon Comparison on Disney’s Sleeping Beauty and Once Upon A Time


When we saw Emma fight Maleficent (in dragon form) it brought back a very familiar scene from the Disney cartoon Sleeping Beauty. Take a look at side by side pictures from the Disney cartoon and Once Upon A Time.












You be the judge! 🙂 🙂

OUAT – OUAT Stars dish about their hopes for Season 2

ABC’s hit show Once Upon a Time has been renewed for a second season of fairy-tale fun, and no one is more excited than the cast. We caught up with some of the stars of the show at ABC’s Upfronts party in New York City and chatted about who they’d be excited to see on the show, and what upcoming ABC shows they’re adding to their DVRs.

Buzz: Which characters from the fairy-tale world would you like to see introduced?

Ginnifer Goodwin (Snow White / Mary Margaret): Oh, I’d love to meet Ariel, Rapunzel, Sleeping Beauty — her job might be a little boring though.

Josh Dallas: I would love to see Jack and the Beanstalk. I would love to see Ariel, The Little Mermaid, there are so many!

Lana Parilla (The Queen / Regina): There have been rumors about a mermaid appearance so I’m sad that I won’t be playing it. Every little girl’s dream is to play a mermaid. I had all my cousins convinced I was a mermaid when I was little, I was a better swimmer and they couldn’t go as far as I could out in the ocean.
