When Once Upon A Time returns this fall for its third season. Viewers will find Emma, Snow, Charming, Regina, Mr. Gold and Captain Hook traveling to Neverland to save Henry from Greg and Tamara.
But whom will they encounter along the way?
PopWrapped’s special two-part series will focus on the heroes and villains that could possibly (and should) make appearances during the third season.
Captain Jack Sparrow (Johnny Depp)
Disney’s favorite pirate could shake things up if he comes on for a guest spot for the third season. Imagine the turf war between Hook and the Pirates of the Caribbean protagonist! Not to mention the possible chemistry between Depp and Jennifer Morrison. Depp’s short time on the show could equivalent ratings’ gold! However, could the Once Upon A Time crew afford Depp for a couple of episodes?
Ariel (Julianne Moore)
Five years ago, famed photographer Annie Liebovitz recruited Academy Award-nominated actress Julianne Moore to portray the Little Mermaid. Once creators Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz should consider using Liebovitz’s approach to bring a much more mature Ariel to Neverland to the series.
The “Wicked” Witches (Idina Menzel & Kristin Chenoweth)
The Once team might drag the sextet’s journey to Neverland out for the first half of the season to explore different worlds. Both creators have expressed a desire to visit the Land of Oz and it would be amazing to have both Idina and Kristin back as Elphaba and Glinda respectfully. In addition, both of them can teach Regina, Emma (and even Mr. Gold), a thing or two about magic and might help the former Evil Queen learn how to cope for being misunderstood.
Aladdin (Suraj Sharma)
Fans have been waiting patiently to see Aladdin grace the Once world. Life of Pi’s Suraj Sharma could definitely do Prince Ali justice as he perfectly as he could play Agrabah’s favorite street rat! Sharma’s Aladdin could actually help the sextet find Henry as he and the Genie could disguise themselves and infiltrate Neverland to find Emma’s son and his kidnappers.
Sherlock Holmes (Benedict Cumberbatch)
Ever since Dr. Whale was revealed to be Dr. Victor Frankenstein last season, Once has made it possible for other non-fairy tale characters to be on the show. One character could be the great Sherlock Holmes. Cumberbatch could not only get Sherlock viewers to tune in but could also be an intellectual equal to Mr. Gold.
Mina Harker (Peta Wilson)
Another Victorian era character that could make an appearance on the show could be the heroine of Dracula. Mina knows first hand how the dark side can change people and could be a potential love interest for Mr. Gold. The only actress that has successfully played the role was The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen’s Peta Wilson.
