Here is just how popular the “Once Upon a Time in Wonderland” spin-off series really is right now: The show has not even started to film beyond the pilot presentation, and there are already more people excited about this than we can really even count.
Take, for example, a certain man in Josh Dallas who already has a full-time job playing the part of Prince Charming. Speaking in a chat with TV Guide, the actor (who is currently stuck on a ship along with Mary Margaret, Emma, Rumpelstiltskin, and a few others) explained that he wanted to find a way to dive in here:
“I want to hang out with the caterpillar … You know, have some tea, have some mushrooms.”
Meanwhile, there is also some really interesting scoop coming in here about the spin-off itself courtesy of Peter Gadiot, who plays the genie Cyrus:
“I’ve heard rumors that we’re going to bring in another very famous male Disney villain who hasn’t yet been seen in the Once world … He’s not from Wonderland but shares a tie to my character.”
Considering that the word “genie” has already been thrown in here, isn’t it easy to say that it is someone from the Aladdin universe? We already have one genie, but Giancarlo Esposito is pretty indisposed at the moment courtesy of “Revolution.” We have still yet to meet the classic Aladdin character himself, or his arch-nemesis in Jafar.
Are you excited about this spin-off series, and is there any particular cast member that you want to see make the jump? If you want to focus some more “Once Upon a Time” news when it comes to Colin O’Donoghue and Captain Hook, just take a look at the link here.
