Once Upon a Time Starts a New Story with SDCC Trailer

first_img A Tale of Two Wonder WomenSDCC Announcement: IDW Games Brings 90s Nick to Life Last season of Once Upon a Time ended with a pretty intriguing cliffhanger. After wrapping up Emma’s story and giving everyone a happy ending, we jumped forward in time. Henry was now an adult living in Seattle. A strange girl shows up at his door, claiming to be his daughter. The first scene of the first season repeated itself, only now Henry was the confused parent. That’s where things ended. Today at SDCC, we got to see where they’ll begin when the show comes back this fall.I’ll admit, when I saw the end of last season’s finale, I was skeptical of their ability to start over with the story. This trailer put a lot of that skepticism to rest. After the first few moments of flashbacks, it kicks into high gear with a new curse, a new setting and a whole lot of new drama. We see a few new characters as well as some familiar faces. There’s Regina at a bar! There’s Rumplestiltskin! There’s… wait, why is Hook a cop now? A Seattle cop, given the monorail in the background. (Does this show think people in Seattle ride that thing?) Well, however, he got there, meet Captain Hook, I guess.After this trailer, I’m excited to see what stories they tell with the new setting. Is the magic actually going to happen inside a major city now, rather than constrained to a secret town behind a barrier? That would definitely be an interesting addition to the series. Whatever they do, it looks like the new season is going to be cheesy, melodramatic and oh so emotional. Everything we love about Once Upon a Time. Now, we just have to wait two and a half months to see more of it. Season seven premieres with its brand new story on October 5 on ABC.Let us know what you like about Geek by taking our survey.
