ABC just can’t let the idea of a Once Upon a Time spinoff go.
Although the series spinoff Once Upon a Time in Wonderland was canceled earlier this year, its failure as a television series however isn’t stopping OUAT producers from suggesting a Frozen spinoff.
In reference to OUAT executive producers, Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis’ suggestion of the new series, ABC president Paul Lee reaffirmed that the idea is not in the works.
“We don’t have immediate plans for a Frozen spinoff, but they’re so inventive, those two…” Lee stated of OUAT’s Horowitz and Kitsis.
He Continued: “Eddy and Adam are endlessly inventive, so they have glints in their eyes of stories that they can spin for years to come. So it certainly doesn’t rule out their ability or my ability to go beyond Once.”
Disney’s Frozen has recently been granted to appear in OUAT’s new season, leaving many to speculate if the decision was in fact a good thing.
Paul Lee however tells viewers not to worry about the introduction of the famous characters on OUAT, telling E! News that he has no doubts whatsoever.
“Absolutely not,” Lee said. “Frozen is a wonderful asset. John Lassiter (executive producer of the Frozen film), himself flew up to Vancouver, he’s integrally related to the way we’re doing that. Adam and Eddie always have a twist on every story, so you can imagine their twist is going to be very different. But no, I think it’s the perfect time. We’re thrilled with it.”
Guess we have wait and see if a Frozen series makes it to our TV screens.
