Kitsis: For us, I think in a lot of ways last year was kind of a series finale.
So in a lot of ways last year put, we felt, a nice bow on the first six seasons. So now we feel a different kind of pressure.
Creation Entertainment's Once Upon a Time Offical Reunion Convention in Whippany, NJ
Horowitz: I think last season was a more traditional series finale in the sense of wrapping up the six season long story. For this year the approach is much more about like capturing the feeling of what the show is and giving the audience that taste one last time so that the show can go off into the sunset and people can walk away with their memories of what the show was as opposed to being a whole big thing about answering questions and settling big arcs.
We really want to keep that feeling alive and leave the audience with that as this season comes to an end. Kitsis: We knew last year that [several members of] the cast were leaving [stars Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Ginnifer Goodwin and others left after the sixth season ]. So we were faced with a major creative choice knowing that the show would continue into season 7.
And we felt like we wanted to end that series the way we wanted to, and I think this year we did we learn a lot. Of course, every time you launch something new you do. Ending a show is always bittersweet. How much impact do you think the timeslot shift to Friday night had on the show?
But I also think that if you just look at any show that is longer than five years that is what happens. But the fans that are there have stayed there. Kitsis: I also think it allowed us to take more of a risk. We felt like Friday night was a safer night to take bigger risks than say if we were still on Sunday. Kitsis: I know! Kitsis: The show is a giant spinoff sequel.
Every year we felt like we rebooted it. Every year we would take it somewhere else. So there are always spin offs to be had.
Will Adam and I do it? We love our fans and we hope that they can continue to enjoy this world. Merlin is one of the most famous wizards in history — he's even used as a catchphrase in "Harry Potter. Prior to the events of "Once Upon a Time," Merlin was cursed and transformed into a tree by his ex-girlfriend, Nimue. He's eventually set free by Emma and her friends and family in season five, but meets a brutal end at the hands of a temporarily evil Captain Hook.
Though his time on the show was brief, Knight made quite the impression on fans — so much so that he became a meme. Kay is similarly a bully in the season five episode "The Dark Swan," but it's unclear if the two have the same familial relationship. He is a knight, and is convinced that he is the one that is destined to pull Excalibur from the stone. Unfortunately when he tries, he is immediately turned into ash. In the film "Hercules," Hades is the antagonist. He is the god of the Underworld, and attempts to overthrow his big brother Zeus by assembling a team of Titans to destroy Mount Olympus.
He is, of course, defeated by his nephew Hercules. Germann's performance as Hades is clearly inspired by the film's version — they're both wisecracking, hot-headed men with blue flames for hair. During season five, the gang travels to the Underworld to rescue Captain Hook, who has died — and they meet Hades, the villain of the season.
Hades eventually falls in love with Zelena, the Wicked Witch of the West from "The Wizard of Oz," but she is forced to kill him after he murders Robin Hood and proves that he'll never change for good. In the movie "Hercules," the titular hunk goes on a hero's journey to find where he belongs — down on Earth with his true love Meg, or on Mount Olympus with his family of gods. Herucles' sole appearance, in the season five episode "Labor of Love," is more heavily influenced by the Greek legend of Hercules. The episode explicitly states that Hercules must complete the 12 labors to become a true hero — something that the movie only hints at.
Hercules is killed during his 12th labor, killing the three-headed dog Cerberus, and is sent to the Underworld. With the help of Meg and his childhood friend Snow White, the trio are able to defeat the dog, and Hercules and Meg enter Mount Olympus. In 's "Hercules," Meg is working as a double agent for Hades, in return for a bargain she made to sell her soul for the life of her boyfriend, who eventually dumped her.
Meg slowly begins to believe in love again after meeting Hercules. She's crushed by a column, and narrowly escapes death when Hercules swims into the River Styx and retrieves her soul. In the season five episode "Labor of Love," Meg is killed alongside Hercules when they are attacked by the three-headed dog Cerberus — however, they had only just met. Her main role is to communicate to Emma Swan that her boyfriend, Captain Hook, was somewhere inside the Underworld. The version of Zeus that appears in 's "Hercules" is mainly there for comic relief — he cracks jokes with his evil brother and his demi-god son, Hercules.
During his one appearance, Zeus is a game-changer — to thank Captain Hook and Emma his soul-mate for helping him defeat Hades, he decides to revive Hook and give him another chance at life. Hook had sacrificed himself during the previous season to defeat the Dark One, one of the show's ultimate bad guys. During the events of the film "Brave," Merida decides to change her fate and not get engaged before she is ready. She fights with her mother Queen Elinor about this, and eventually gets her mother and brothers cursed, turning them into bears.
Only when Merida and Elinor learn to appreciate each other does the curse reverse. She avenges her father, rescues her mother and brothers, and proves to her clans that she is fit to lead them as queen. In "Brave," Fergus supports his daughter Merida, and is the one who buys her her own bow and arrow. He's not a huge character, but it's clear he loves his daughter. In the fifth season episode "The Bear King," their bond is explored much more. Fergus still supports Merida, and encourages her to practice her bow and arrow skills with a teacher Mulan , but tries to keep her out of battle.
He is eventually killed in one-on-one combat, while a horrified Merida watches. Merida is inspired by her father's foregoing of magic, and convinces the warring clans to respect her authority. To reward Merida for this, a witch grants her the ability to speak with the spirit of her father. After their conversation, Merida is reminded that she needs revenge for his murder, and sets off to kill the man who beat Fergus — King Arthur.
In the film "Brave," Queen Elinor disapproves of her daughter's tomboyish ways, and wants Merida to change in order to become a more respectable future queen. Her refusal to see Merida for what she is eventually gets her and her sons turned into bears by a curse. The events of season five take place after "Brave," when Merida is about to become queen after the death of King Fergus.
Elinor and her sons are exiled, because the clans do not believe that Merida is fit to rule — Merida eventually proves them wrong and rescues her family. Young Macintosh is one of Merida's three suitors in 's "Brave. After the death of Merida's father, Macintosh has apparently reversed his decision, and again demands that Merida marry him or one of the other two suitors. Merida again is able to prove she can lead on her own.
Meet the Cast
In the movie "Brave," the Witch curses Merida's mother and brothers by transforming them into bears — though she doesn't do it to be evil. She's actually working to try and convince Merida and her mother Elinor to make up and see each other for who they actually are. The Witch has a similar role in "The Bear King," in which she helps both Merida and King Fergus in a flashback realize that they don't need magic to rule their kingdom successfully. The "Treasure Planet" was itself based on the novel "Treasure Island. He forms a bond with the cyborg Long John Silver, a pirate.
Captain Silver's name is really just an Easter egg to Disney fans. He appears in one episode of season five that explores Captain Hook's back story as a deckhand. He's vindictive, selfish, and ultimately dies due to his hubris. Aladdin, obviously, comes from the movie "Aladdin," the story of a beggar who discovers a magic lamp, and uses the genie inside to win the affections of a princess, Jasmine. The "Once Upon a Time" iteration of the character is considered a "savior," just like the show's main character Emma Swan. Essentially, he had magical powers in order to do good and be a hero.
In "Aladdin," the movie about a "street rat" who falls in love with a princess, Jafar who calls Aladdin "street rat" is an evil sorcerer who wants to take over the kingdom of Agrabah, and by extension, the world. He is defeated when he becomes a genie himself at the end of the movie. During the show's sixth season, which explores what happens to "saviors" like Aladdin or Emma Swan, Jafar is the one who explains to Aladdin that saviors never get happy endings, and provides him with shears that will sever him from his destiny as a savior.
In 's "Aladdin," Jasmine is the object of Aladdin's affections — but she is determined to have adventures, not just be a prize to be won. She also states that she intends to marry for love, not power.

She first falls for Aladdin when he's only a thief, and convinces him that he doesn't have to pretend to be a prince, but that she loves him for who he is. Jasmine is essentially the same in the show — she's strong, determined, dedicated to her people, and adamant that she will marry for love.
Much like her animated counterpart, Jasmine convinces Aladdin that he is strong enough to defeat Jafar just the way he is. The two eventually end up living happily ever after. The Sultan in 's "Aladdin" is more of a figurehead than anything else — he spends most of the movie being mind-controlled by his evil servant Jafar.
His main contribution is changing the law so his daughter doesn't have to marry a prince, and can instead marry Aladdin. The Sultan appears in two episodes of the sixth season of "Once Upon a Time," and has a similar arc. He's manipulated by Jafar, and is desperately searching for suitors that his daughter Jasmine will connect with. Thankfully, Peter rescues her and she subsequently falls in love with him, much to the chagrin of Tinker Bell and Wendy. Tiger Lily appears much later than the rest of her Neverland counterparts who were introduced way back in season three.
This version of Tiger Lily originally started out as a fairy, and was actually named Rumpelstiltskin's fairy godmother, which was revealed in season six. In the film "Cinderella," not much is known of Lady Tremaine, other than that she has two daughters, married Cinderella's father, and is now committed to making her life miserable. Her two daughters are named Clorinda and Tisbe. They eventually make their way to Storybrooke, and reunite with Cinderella, who they unsuccessfully try to kill. Anastasia appears in all three "Cinderella" movies, but is most recognizable from the original film "Cinderella," the rags-to-riches tale of Cinderella, who goes from servant to princess despite the scheming of her wicked step-mother and evil step-sisters.
In "Once Upon a Time," Anastasia is considerably more likable. Instead of being an evil step-sister, she is a daughter who misses her mother, who went missing when she was a young girl. She also has the power to do magic, unlike her cartoon counterpart. Drizella is the other evil step-sister from "Cinderella," along with Anastasia. In the film, Drizella doesn't have much to do, other than bully her step-sister and make Cinderella's life miserable. Drizella, in the show, is much more nuanced.

Naveen starts off as a childish, lazy, privileged young man, but during his adventures with Tiana, he grows up and learns the value of hard work — and they fall in love. Naveen appears in season seven of "Once Upon a Time.
While the two don't fall in love during the show, it's definitely hinted that it will eventually happen. She is poor, and depends on both her hard work and Tiana's to help sustain them. But, she is very supportive of Tiana's dream of owning her own restaurant. In the final season of "Once Upon a Time," Eudora is still broke — but she's royalty. Her husband, also dead in the show, became a prince after showing bravery as a soldier. Facilier, a Voodoo witch doctor.
