Outside of the rather stellar Comic-Con trailer for “Once Upon a Time” featuring Captain Hook, it’s not exactly a stretch by any means for us to say that there has not been much in the way of new footage released at all for the hit ABC show’s second season. Is it part to keep the mystery alive? We think so, especially when you remember that there was such a cliffhanger at the end of season 1 that pretty much any shred of information handed down would be a spoiler of the worst possible degree.
So with that in mind, we have a new trailer for the show featuring something that is going to feel rather familiar to everyone: notable footage from the show’s first season. Even though almost all of this is in fact going to be recognizable, the editing team over at ABC in conjunction with the show’s producers did a fantastic job here of bringing together from of the series’ most epic moments: from the famous Snow White / Prince Charming kiss to the curse being broken to the infamous look on Regina’s face as magic starts to slowly work its way throughout Storybrooke. This move was a game-changer that will impact how every character operates in season 2, and there are all sorts of questions that come along with it, including whether or not the use of magic is going to be limited to just the Evil Queen and Rumpelstiltskin.
Before we get to answers to any of these questions, though, we cannot really do anything else for now beyond just sitting back, reminding ourselves of what has transpired on the show thus far, and look forward to some of the visual magic that is coming our way soon.
