ABC has done it again! We are super excited about Thursdays on ABC because we LOVE fairytales and frankly Alice in Wonderland has always topped my list. And those brainy folks over at ABC are premiering Once Upon a Time in Wonderland this Thursday at 8/7c. And to get myself and all of the ModOration readers possibly more excited, wink wink, we are featuring a chatty interview between Disney Insider and the clever creators of my soon to be new favourite show. And don’t forget to make it to the end of the interview where a teaser clip awaits from Thursday night’s premier.
The Disney Insider: Why fairy tales on television?
Eddy: For us personally, they are the very first stories we heard on television and stayed with us. So Once Upon a Time was an idea Adam and I had about nine or ten years ago. When it came time for Wonderland, we had already showed you the Mad Hatter on OUAT and we explored a bit of his background. We revealed that the Evil Queen’s mom was the Queen of Hearts and we shared a little bit of Wonderland. But we had a lot of stories and ideas of Alice and we felt there was no room in what we refer to as the mothership. We were very fortunate that Paul Lee and everyone at ABC liked the idea and gave us the opportunity to create Wonderland.
