THE ENCHANTED FOREST
The Enchanted Forest is where most of the fairy tale characters lived before coming to our world. Fans and show creators have also referred to it as The Fairytale Land, although it is never called this in the actual show. Just like “Lost” the ABC TV show used flashbacks as a major part of how it told its story, Once Upon A Time uses the same formula. They serve to bring more understanding and reasoning as to why characters make certain choices and to give a history of their counterpart. There are many other realms but the main focus is on The Enchanted Forest. Stories such as Snow White, Rumpelstiltskin, Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast all take place in this land. Once the Evil Queen cast her curse, she sends everyone from the Enchanted Forest to Storybrooke.
