Older Disney fans will be thrilled with this show!
Once Upon a Time, as its name suggests, is about fairy tales. The catch? The fairy tale characters live in modern times... and they don’t remember who they are.
Snow White is a schoolteacher; Rumpelstiltskin is a successful businessman; and the Evil Queen who cast them to our time? She’s the town mayor. While there are literally dozens of famous storybook characters spotlighted in the show its focuses are the Evil Queen, Snow, and the people they’ve both loved.
Why you may like this: Disney fans will smile when characters are revealed as they tend to follow the Disney telling of the tales rather than the Grimm versions. It’s exceptionally cheeky and fun with a dash of intrigue.
