‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3 spoilers: Peter Pan casting process has begun

Once Upon a TimeYou know you have a good thing going when you can boost excitement for a character without them even being revealed, and at the moment, this is precisely what ABC and executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have managed to pull off when it comes to the new season of “Once Upon a Time.” We don’t have any clue just yet as to who is going to be playing the part of Peter Pan on the show’s upcoming third season, but thanks to some very ominous teases from the finale, we have to say that we couldn’t be any more stoked to find out.

Luckily, the team is inching slowly and surely to what will eventually be decision time. Speaking in a chat with E! News, Kitsis teased that producers are at least in the process of trying to take a look at some names for the show:

“We have begun the process, but we have begun it secretly! We’re sneaky this way!”

The two also revealed that there is a significant back-story between Pan and Rumpelstiltskin, one that makes it understandable that Robert Carlyle’s character would have some of the fears that he does for who was in the Disney movie a rather likable character. However, don’t expect the story of Pan and Rumple to become clear right away, as it will build over the entire first 11 episodes of the season. (As you may recall, the plan this time is to divide the show into two halves, one airing in the fall, and the other airing in the spring, as a way to keep the story intact and reduce ratings drops.)

Are there any names floating around out there that you would like to see enter the “Once Upon a Time” world in the future? We’d love to hear them in the comment box below! Also, be sure to take a look here if you are a fan of Emma and Captain Hook, and want a reason to be happy very soon.
