Over the years, it has become a bit of a tradition as a TV fan to sit around and wait for the new promotional photos for the new season to be released. However, we feel like we have to give ABC and “Once Upon a Time” a little bit more credit here than we do for most other shows. Why? Not only are the photos that they have presented to us clear and creative, but they represent something that is true to these characters without simultaneously bashing us over the head with it.
One great example of this very thing is the hysterical photo in her of Josh Dallas’ Charming / David, who looks completely ridiculous in his full Prince regalia on a horse while out on the streets of Storybrooke. Even if it is comical, it still works and it is something that we would not have thought of at first to be a part of Charming’s photo to promote the new season.
As for some of the others, they are still creative whether it be Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin) in a gigantic dress, Little Red Riding Hood (Meghan Ory) walking the very creature that is a part of who she is, on Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle) being as evil as he can possibly be while sitting in a chair with a giant scarf next to him. They are all fun, and they capture some of the characters’ whimsy. Plus it is also nice to see Red and Belle (Emilie de Ravin) as a larger part of the equation now that they are each series regulars.
