‘Once Upon A Time’ Adding Two New Disney Princesses
Any fan of ABC’s fairy-tale themed Sunday hit ‘Once Upon A Time‘ knows that the show largely creates its own continuity, but borrows plenty from the classic Disney adaptations of various literary princesses. ‘Once Upon A Time’ has shown us classic princesses ranging from Snow White to Belle to Cinderella, but now we’ve learned that season 2 of the critically-applauded series will add two more famous female heroines to the ranks! Who are they, and what actresses will be behind the magic?
According to reports from both TVLine and Entertainment Weekly, ‘Once Upon A Time’ season 2 has seriously upped its princess quotient for the second year, introducing both Chinese heroine Mulan as well as the notoriously narcoleptic Sleeping Beauty. ‘The Hangover 2′ and ‘Sucker Punch’ star Jamie Chung will take the role of Mulan, brought to popularity by Ming-Na in Disney’s 1998 animated adaptation, while Irish acress Sarah Bolger will play Princess Aurora, better known as Sleeping Beauty.
Both characters will be introduced for recurring roles during the show’s second season, which premieres Sunday, October 23. It’s likely that the characters will also be previewed during the ‘Once Upon a Time’ panel at Comic-Con 2012.
