Frozen’s Princess Elsa is coming to Once Upon A Time in season 4 and fans have a lot of questions before the show premieres in the fall. Will she be the new icy villain coming to Stroybrooke for vengeance? Not exactly. The executive producers made it clear that they want to honor the character that everyone has fallen in love with. She’s not evil, just misunderstood. Wait, isn’t every villain just ‘misunderstood’? That’s what makes them evil right? Like Zelena wouldn’t have been trying to enact the travel-back-in-time curse if her mother never gave her up and Rumpel didn’t choose her step-sister!
So why is Elsa coming to Storybrooke? What is her agenda? We know she escaped from Rumpels closet of magical object/magic he didn’t understand so what is her magic exactly? Can she make hell freeze over on earth? What was her relationship with Rumpel? And last, but definitely not least, who is going to play the new princess?
While the actress hasn’t been cast ye (the executive producers are taking a little well-deserved hiatus) we have in mind some ladies we’d love to join the small screen. Jennifer Morrison (who plays Emma Swan) admitted to MTV News that she would love Idina Menzel or Kristen Bell, who voiced Princess Anna and Elsa for the movie, to play the part of the icy royal. With their busy schedules, we’re not sure if that’s entirely feasible.
Personally, I’m not a fan of Kristen Bell so I don’t really want her to be a princess of any sort on OUAT and
Adele Dazeem Idina Menzel doesn’t really fit the part for me either.
Here’s some ladies that we think could definitely pull off the icy look.
- Diana Agron– She would make a terrific ice princess. And with Glee coming to an end (let’s be real, their ratings suck) this could just be perfect timing. Plus, her facial features totally fit into the fantasy world. Agron has yet to comment on the casting buzz, but fans have made some killer fan art featuring Agron in full Arendelle attire.
- Amanda Schull– Are you sure she isn’t actually Princess Elsa? Really?? You had me fooled! Schull is best known for her role as Meredith, the student that’s been sleeping with her professor aka Aria’s father on Pretty Little Liars. She has a lot of free time now considering A chased her out of town. The fan art that has Schull in Elsa attire looks so real. And so promising! Plus, we know that she can play a mean girl pretty well. Let’s hope the producers take our advice to heart!
- Sarah Michelle Geller– She was kick ass as Buffy the Vampire Slayer. We know she has a good track record of being on a longtime, supernatural show. While she was the hero on it, we think she could totally handle being the misunderstood villain for a change. She would totally kill it as Elsa. Plus, she needs something a stable at this point. Her first small-screen show Ringer, didn’t make it to season two and neither did her comedy with Robin Williams, The Crazy Ones.
- Elizabeth Mitchell- Personally, I don’t see her as Elsa but she’s totally a contender because she was on Lost. And we know the producers of Once looooooove the people of Lost. I swear, half of that island has been in Storybrooke/ The Enchanted Forest. Plus her show Revolution just got booted so Ms. Mitchell might have some free time on her hands before moving on to bigger things! The odds also might be in her favor.”Once has always been a beautiful home for people who were stranded on the island,” said Kitsis. And Horowitz is aware that there are many folks who would totally love to see Mitchell in that role!
- Blake Lively– Princess? Check! Blake Lively is no stranger to the small screen. I mean she basically built her career from Gossip Girl. Ever since the show ended, she hasn’t really been scoring any major roles. While she did want to do more movies, I feel like this would be the perfect role for the new Ms. Reynolds. I’m sure that Elsa will not be a long-term character. Much like Zelena she will cause her mischief and come to terms with her fate and move on at the end of the season. Plus, Blake would totally rock the long icy dress and blonde curls.
Who do you think should play Elsa? Who would like to see play her? Sound off in the comments below!
Now, onto the spoilers! While co-creator Eddy Kitsis admitted that everyone is taking a break from writing the next season, here’s some things we can look forward to.
Elsa and Rumpelstilskin
Not much has developed on this front except that its obvious these two have a history. “It seems like they’ve crossed paths,” Kitsis said. And you know crossing paths will Rumpel always has consequences. In this case, getting locked up in a chamber for years to come.
Other Frozen characters?
“We would be very disappointed if Elsa was the only one from that world that you saw. Who else may appear, we’re not ready to tell you just yet,” Horowitz admitted.
On the season 3 finale, Emma came back from the past and brought back Marian. Marian is Robin Hood’s wife, whom he thought died many years ago. Truthfully, she probably did, but when Emma went back in time she saved from Regina’s prison and brought her back to the present not knowing who she was. While Regina finally got her happy ending with Robin Hood, it was quickly taken from her when he was reunited with his wife. Now the question is, how does this affect Regina? Will she become evil again? Will she be intent on destroying Emma? It’s really unfortunate because these two have really bonded over Henry.
“Regina’s greatest villain is her own weakness. We want to see how she handles this setback. Does she revert to her old ways? Does she continue on a new path? And also, how does Emma react? Does Emma feel the guilt like her mom did when she found out about Daniel? All that messiness is what we want to get into. We think it’s more complicated than her returning to her vault and killing Emma — unless, of course, she returns to her vault and kills Emma,” Horowitz explained.
As for Robin Hood
Kitsis and Horowitz explained that we will see him struggle with his feelings for both Regina and Marion, his wife. When we left off the two had a blossoming relationship. Regina finally let her wall down and let love in. That’s something she was terrified of doing. She embraced Robin’s child as her own and it seemed like things were finally going to turn around for the once evil queen. But now, Robin Hood has his wife back and he has to make a choice. Does he go back to the woman he once loved, whose kid he’s been raising, or does he stick with the woman he recently fell in love with. The one Tinkerbell told him was his one true love? Gosh, I hope its the latter.
Emma and Hook!
Well their an item now. Emma finally embraced her feelings for Hook and let love in. It was perfect. But on this show, nothing stays perfect for too long.
“What we saw in the finale was the beginning of something, which could go in many different ways and many different avenues down which they could go. It’s not like they’re going to suddenly go to order Chinese and watch Netflix. There’s going to be some challenges ahead and we’re going to have to show you some surprises about where the two of them go,” said Horowitz.
Baby Neal and the Charming’s
We can’t forget that the Charming’s now have a brand new bundle of joy. Literally, it all just seemed to good to be true. How will they deal raising a newborn?
“It will be interesting for them to have a newborn because we’ve never seen them have that experience. They had to put Emma in a wardrobe and she came back to them 28 years later. Don’t forget — they both share one heart. We still have to dive into what that means,” Kitsis explained.

‘Harry Potter’ Live-Action TV Series Might Be Coming to HBO Max Sooner Rather Than Later
Blimey! Harry Potter might be coming to HBO Max.
Deadline reports that a live-action TV series based on the world created in the popular novels-turned-movies could be coming to the streamer.
But don’t pack up your flying car just yet.
At this time, the streamer is only holding “exploratory conversations,” sources say.
“There are no Harry Potter series in development at the studio or on the streaming platform,” HBO Max and Warner Bros. said in a statement clearing up the rumors.
However, that doesn’t mean a spinoff series won’t eventually happen or isn’t a logical move for the franchise.
We’ve seen Disney embrace lots of success with series’ based on the Star Wars or Marvel franchises.
Harry Potter, Hermione, and Ron Weasely may have graduated from Hogwarts, but there’s plenty of magical stories within the castle walls just waiting to be told!
Would you be interested in a Harry Potter spinoff? Let us know in the comments below!
WATCH: ‘Framing Britney Spears’ Documentary Digs Into #FreeBritney Movement and Conservatorship
Are you part of the #BritneyArmy? Have you been following her career religiously since 1998?
If so, you’re probably all too familiar with the #FreeBritney movement, which aims to free the pop star from her controversial conservatorship put in place in 2008 after she experienced several mental breakdowns.
The New York Times Presents will dig deeper into the movement with their latest episode, “Framing Britney Spears” set to debut on February 5.
It will air simultaneously on FX and FX on Hulu.
Per the official synopsis, the standalone documentary will feature “people close to Britney Spears and lawyers tied to her conservatorship now reassess her career as she battles her father in court over who should control her life.”
A teaser trailer for the documentary was released today with one of the featured guests stating that “the way we treated her was disgusting”.
Another guest questions why her dad is making all of her decisions as a third adds that “anytime there’s that amount of money to be made, you have to question the motives of everyone.”
Watch the trailer below:
Dale Moss Accused of Cheating on ‘The Bachelorette’s Clare Crawley During Engagement
With a few notable exceptions (we’re looking at you, Jake Pavelka; ditto, Arie Luyendyk, Jr.), Bachelor Nation couples tend to offer fairly staid reasons for why their relationship wilted.As they’re busily shipping off that Neil Lane diamond and hashing out who gets custody of Chris Harrison in the breakup, the once madly in love duos craft statements about their mutual decision to separate and the deep admiration they still hold for each other. And for a minute there, it appeared Clare Crawley and Dale Moss would be following that script.
Confirming their separation on Instagram Jan. 19, the former NFL athlete shared that it was “the healthiest decision for both of us,” noting they continued to want “the best things for one another.” He doubled down when approached by a reporter while out in New York City hours later, insisting that “Clare and I have a lot of love for each other.”
The split was just one of those things, he continued, blaming his and the Sacramento-based hairstylist’s packed schedules. “Honestly, we’ve just got a lot going on in our lives right now,” he explained, adding that they had every intention of remaining in each other’s orbits as friends: “Clare and I will be cool.”
Wellllllll, unless that’s some sort of hip new slang, he shouldn’t bet on it.
Because not 24 hours after the 32-year-old and the franchise’s 16th lead announced the end of their five-month engagement, leaving the door just slightly ajar for a reconciliation, it became clear that their breakup was more Hannah Brown–Jed Wyatt, less Ben Higgins–Lauren Bushnell. Put plainly, multiple sources familiar with the situation tell E! News they believe Moss has been cheating on Crawley throughout their engagement.
He and the woman in question (E! News has chosen not to name her at this time) have been in communication since at least late 2019, but Moss insisted to Crawley, 39, that theirs was merely a business relationship. Still, “Clare has always been skeptical,” says one source with knowledge of the circumstance. “She never trusted the friendship and thought it was shady.” And as their nascent romance began to splinter, her worst suspicions were confirmed.
The first source tells E! News the woman “has been talking to her friends about sneaking around with Dale.” As for Crawley, continues the source, “she has seen proof” that whenever Moss was in New York City without her, he was with his other flame.
One such occasion came in November—not long after Moss’ proposal aired on TV and he brought his bride-to-be home to South Dakota. Spotted enjoying a late-night candlelit dinner at Cipriani Downtown, “It definitely looked like a date,” shared an eyewitness, noting the pair appeared to leave hand-in-hand. “Dale looked really smiley and happy with her. They were laughing and flirting.”
Suffice to say Crawley isn’t the type to subscribe to the it’s-not-cheating-if-you’re-
Signing on to dole out roses after a memorable stint as Juan Pablo Galavis‘ runner-up, two rounds of Bachelor in Paradiseand a brief Bachelor Winter Games engagement, she was unequivocal about her intentions to find her forever partner. “I am looking for a man that is just like my dad,” she explained during her Good Morning America reveal. “Strong, loving, gentle, compassionate and just a real, genuine, kind man.”
Of utmost importance, she stressed, was someone interested in cozy Friday nights on the couch, someone “who doesn’t want to be in the spotlight.”
Basically, someone not like Moss, as she’s come to learn. Because for all of his smooth moves and uncanny ability to, as Crawley put it, “show up for me,” Moss seemed to arrive at Palm Springs’ La Quinta Resort & Club last summer with visions of podcast hosting, modeling work and sponcon dancing in his head, just like others before him.in other words, he was there for the wrong reasons.
Now, as multiple insiders familiar with their relationship describe Moss as a “fame-seeker,” the first source notes the signs were there all along: “It is obvious now. Things are making sense to her now. She didn’t want to believe it at first but is now heartbroken.”
Because Crawley had been certain she’d be able to sniff out an imposter, knowing what she would and wouldn’t put up with. But it turns out intuition is powerless in the face of overwhelming chemistry.
As viewers saw, Crawley believed in her soul that she’d found her guy in Moss from the moment he stepped out of the limo. Sure, she’d done a little Insta digging beforehand and she didn’t hate his chiseled abs and mega-watt smile, but in person there was something else, that inexplicable belief this was meant to be. “I definitely feel like I just met my husband,” she declared breathlessly.
And the more she and Moss bonded over the loss of her father and his mother and, yes, made out, the more certain she was that the rest of her suitors could pack their bags and go home. “We have this connection where it feels like I’ve known him forever,” she explained to producers. “It’s that intangible chemistry that you just can’t make up and you can’t replace.”
Even better, he seemed just as all-in, telling Crawley, “When we met, I felt love and, like, that’s what I came here for. I’m falling in love with you through this process. I’m not afraid to say that at all. My heart is open and I’m not gonna fight that.”
Can you really blame a girl for getting swept up in it all?
By the time she was flashing a shiny new 4.5-carat diamond, Crawley was so far gone, she bristled at the mere suggestion that what they had was anything less than love at first sight.
“How he makes me feel is literally, like, sunbeams out of my heart, like, into the world,” she explained to Harrison at their make-shift After the Final Rose special. “And I know that sounds so stupid, but I just feel it to my core. And whether it took one day or 10 days or two weeks or two years, this man makes me happy.”
So she dove head first into a future as Mrs. Dale Moss, giddily referring to the South Dakota State alum as “my husband”, announcing her intention to have babies ASAP and dreaming up the perfect way to cement their bond with a collection of island-based elopements. And she brushed off any and all criticism.
“I’d be lying if I said it’s been easy because I’m human,” she admitted on Good Morning America of people questioning Moss’ commitment. “The things people say without knowing the full truth and without seeing exactly how things really happened and genuinely happened, it just blows my mind in a world right now where there’s so much negativity and hate and hard things going on right now.”
But, actually, the full truth seems to be worse than most suspected.
Because Crawley couldn’t shake her anxiety that Moss’ friendship wasn’t as platonic as he claimed it to be. “Dale would always reassure Clare that it was nothing serious,” says the source, but “multiple people have told Clare that Dale was parading around NYC with this girl.” Each time, continues the source, “Clare would confront him about his relationship and tried to question him about it, but he would always deny it.”
