Could Robin Hood Or Tarzan Be Possible New Additions To ABC’s ‘Once Upon A Time’?
Not content with using characters from classic fairy tales. The producers of the ABC hit series Once Upon A Time have hinted that they could be looking a little further afield for new additions to the long list of characters that we are already seeing in Once Upon A Time.
Edward Kitsis told Entertainment Weekly that the fantasy drama’s writers are “waiting for the right moment” to introduce Ariel of The Little Mermaid fame.
“[That character is] already woven into the fabric of what we’re doing; the only question is when,” fellow exec Adam Horowitz added.
Horowitz went on to insist that The Wizard of Oz is “another when, not if”, while Kitsis explained that both Robin Hood and Tarzan could “absolutely” appear on Once, while Mary Poppins was also “in-bounds, but it won’t be this year”.
Both Kitsis and Horowitz revealed that they had originally planned to feature the character of Sherlock Holmes on the show, but that a “rights issue” had prevented them from writing in Conan Doyle’s famous detective.
“But now we’re so in love with the BBC’s Sherlock, I don’t want to even play in that arena,” Kitsis explained. “We’ll never have Sherlock unless Benedict Cumberbatch wants to come on.”
Once Upon a Time airs on Sunday nights on ABC in the US and will return to Channel 5 in the UK in early 2013.
