‘Once Upon a Time’ season 3: Ariel, Tinkerbell, and other characters we’d like to see

"Once Upon a Time" - CastLast year, we published a list of some fairy-tale characters that we would love to see on “Once Upon a Time” for season 2, and given that we once again find ourselves smack in the middle of a lengthy hiatus, doesn’t it feel like the time is right to do so all over again?

We’ve tried to pick people that are either somewhat connected to the show already via some world or some character, or people that are famous and could potentially draw in new viewers. Agree? Disagree? We want to hear from you in the comment box below!

Princess Jasmine -We’d love to see a wider array of people introduced on the show, and why not change it up? I think that everyone is expecting to see either Aladdin or Jafar before Jasmine, but given that Meghan Ory’s Red is going to be disappearing from the show for much of season 3, Belle could use a new BFF in Storybrooke.

Tarzan – Just because you know you want to see a man running around in a loincloth on network TV. Given the amount of CGI / animals that he would need it seems unlikely, not to mention that Vancouver is not home to any jungles, but the character would certainly introduce a new sort of male hero to the show.

The Frog Prince – We know that “The Princess and the Frog” has received more attention as of late, but we like the original tale (well, the one modified from the Grimm version) and also the message that it represents. Considering how often this show tries to sell us on hunky guys, it could use an inner beauty message in here somewhere.

Ariel – We almost did not want to put the character on this year’s list considering how predictable that it is. Everyone wants Ariel on the show, and with mermaids being mentioned in relation to Neverland, it could finally happen. We don’t have any idea how it would work logistically, but a fish-out-of-water story (partially literally here) is always fun to see.

Tinkerbell – Maybe we’ve already met her, or something metaphorical on the show is representative of her, but given how Peter Pan has been made into something evil on this show moving into season 3, wouldn’t you want to see what this popular fairy would be in this world?
