Ever wondered how Once Upon a Time creative team came up with the idea to tackle Frozen this upcoming season? Wonder no more!
The answer was revealed during the ABC fantasy hit's panel at San Diego Comic-Con on Saturday, and of course, it's all thanks to pizza. Confused? Let us explain...
The fun mockumentary finds showrunners Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis meeting with their writers for a mini-camp (but it's not really a camp, so don't bring marshmallows!) to try and come up with their big bad for season four. Too bad they have a slight problem. "We've done a lot of Disney villains and we're running out."
So what's a struggling writers' team solution? Their last resort: call Lost boss Carlton Cuse...using the Dharma Initiative red phone!
Unfortunately, Cuse, who is currently working on A&E's Bates Motel and FX's The Strain, isn't in a giving mood. (That poor lamp!) But unlikely savior shows up just as it seems all hope is lost: the pizza delivery guy! Watch the video above to see the hilarity go down, and make sure to check out all the white boards behind the writers for some funny little tidbits, like stuff villains do and unused fairy tale ideas.
As for season four scoop revealed during the panel? Hook (Colin Donoghue) will be getting a new costume next season, and Giancarlo Esposito is set to return as the Mirror/Sydney. The scene from the premiere that was screened for fans included the Mirror as Regina (Lana Parrilla) needs a little help. "I need my mirror. There's someone standing in the way of my happiness and I need you to get rid of them," she says. Uh-oh!
OUAT returns Sunday, Sept. 28 on ABC.
