‘Once Upon a Time’ season 4: Elsa, Anna, Kristoff from ‘Frozen’ coming

There was no greater surprise and gimmick at the end of Once Upon a Time’s third season than the hint at Elsa from Frozen. The creators used a “stand-in” to tease Elsa’s arrival and, now fans learn, a lot more.

Just when the song “Let It Go” was finally scrubbed free from your cerebral cortex, Disney pulls the strings and ABC was a willing accomplice to incorporate the blockbuster into the live-action drama.

Frozen is coming Once Upon a Time season 4 banner ad“Well, it’s funny, we’re not going to redo the movie, because we just don’t feel like it’s in anyone’s interest for us to redo it,” Once Upon a Time co-creator Adam Horowitz told E! News after the finale. “But what we are going to do, we’re not ready to tell you. But what we can say is we’re very aware of what we think makes this character from Frozen so special and we want to honor that and make sure that what we do is in the universe of everyone fell in love with this past year.”

What Horowitz did not confess was that a couple of the characters would be joining the cast. “Elsa will appear in approximately nine episodes, the others a bit less,” says TV Line, before offereing the character overviews for casting which are available below.

There has already been photoshopped Elsa photos from the animated film shooting dollar bills from her hands instead of ice, but does anyone really have the right to be outraged? How could Disney NOT cash in on the Frozen mania?

 Maybe you missed the grand appearance, you can watch the clip below.

Once Upon a Time wrapped in April but is set to return for the fourth season in the fall.

Here’s the casting summaries:

ELSA | The Queen of Arendelle, this late-20s/early-30s beauty long struggled to control her “chilling” powers and even unleashed upon her town an eternal winter during her coronation. Ultimately, she realized that the key to controlling her powers is love — namely, her bond with sister Anna — and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again (in which instance Vancouver weather could rival Winnipeg’s!)

ANNA | Elsa’s slightly younger sister is a fun-loving, fearless optimist who often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit. She values her relationship with her sister above all else.

KRISTOFF | This handsome, hearty, salt-of-the-earth ice cutter spent most of his life alone (unless you count his reindeer). He has a sometimes-gruff demeanor that can hide his deep love for Anna and her sister Elsa. When we first meet Kristoff on Once, he is adjusting to life at the castle — including sleeping indoors for the first time in his life.
