Once Upon A Time is generating more buzz this summer than in years past for one simple reason: the cliffhanger in the season finale that aired in May clearly indicated that Elsa from Frozen would be joining the show. We now know that several others from the film will be joining her as well, including Anna and Kristoff. Three weeks ago, following great speculation as to who would play the popular Elsa on the live-action show, producers announced it would be Georgina Haig, an actress best known for her role as Etta on Fringe. Now, you can get your first look at Haig in character as Elsa after the break!
TIME debuted a still from the season premiere, which showcases the look that Haig will don for the show. The costume and hair braid is consistent with what we saw in the animated film, which should indicate that the Once creative team does not intend to deviate greatly from the film’s interpretation of the character. Given Elsa’s popularity, which only seems to grow as we move further away from the film’s 2013 release date, it will be good news for Frozen fans looking to jump into the show for the first time.
The fourth season of Once Upon A Time is scheduled to premiere on Sunday, September 28 on ABC.
