Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz Producers of Tron: Legacy and the popular TV series Lost have taken yet another intricate and complicated storyline venture that only they could bring to life. Together they will bring a bold new vision at the world of fairytales and add a modern day twist in the new fantastic show ‘Once Upon A time’ in which 28-year old bail bonds collector Anna Swan (Jennifer Morrison) gets trapped in a world that’s between a fairy tale and reality. Brimming with wonder, and filled with the magic of our most beloved fairytales, Once Upon a time is a fitting follow up to Lost, and is sure to take you in a never ending story that is fitting for a movie series.
Anna has been on her own since she was abandoned as a baby, due to this abandonment she learned to take care of herself. During her early adult hood, Anna gives birth to Henry, (Jared Gilmore) but she gives up Henry early into his life and departs his side. At the age of 10 Henry finds Anna, but Anna has no idea as to who he is, still, she finds a strange attraction towards Henry. Once Henry and Anna find each other, everything Anna thought she knew about life, changed.
Henry believes that Anna is the daughter of Price Charming, (Josh Dallas) and Snow White, (Ginnifer Goodwin). Henry thinks that Anna was sent away from the fairytale world to protect her from the Evil Queens (Lana Parilla) curse that trapped the fairytale world for eternity – in a type of suspended animation – that makes Henry feel like they are all frozen in time.
Anna, a self sustained bail bonds collector with a rational head in her shoulder does not believe a word of from Henry and she takes him back to Storybrook. Once Anna and Henry arrive to Storybrook, a strange New England town that brings Henry and Anna more close to each other.
Concerned for Henry’s safety, she decides to stay at Storybrook for a while, but during her stay Anna quickly realizes that Storybrook is more than what she initially thought it was.
Storybrook, a town where magic has been long forgotten still remained powerfully close to the magical world of the fairytale dreams. In Storybrook, fairytale characters are far from being dead, and although they have long forgotten who they once were, including Henry’s Foster mother, the Evil Queen who entrapped the fairytale world in the suspended animation stage.
The epic battle for the survival of the worlds begins early into the series, and Anna is trapped in the middle it all, but in order for good to win, Anna will have to accept her destiny and fight like hell.
Aside from a fantastic story line that seems to be more complex than Tron: Legacy and Lost combined, the cast composed of season veterans like Robert Carlyle, Josh Dallas, James Dornan, Jared Gilmore, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrision, Lana Parilla, and Raphael Sbarge, you can rest assure that there will be convincing character development throughout the entire series.
