ABC’s Once Upon a Time first look at Rapunzel.
"We went a little darker and freakier," says executive producer Edward Kitsis. "A little more horror story in the vein of [the 2004 movie] The Grudge.”
The long-locked damsel played by Alexandra Metz will be visited in her tower by Prince Charming as well as a mysterious hooded menace.
Unfortunately, it appears that Rapunzel will not be a recurring character on the show. As appears to be par for the course with characters of color on the show, from what I have read.
Hm! I’ve never seen this show, so I’m not going to pretend to know what they’re all about or what the heck is going on in that “darker and freakier” quote (side note, so it’s going to be more like a horror story, less like the original where a human is locked in a tower for years and someone is blinded by thorns, or as we know it, Good Times Rapunzel).
But looking at the picture you immediately think, this is a cool thing, more of this! More more! On the off chance that you are a Hollywood Honcho reading tumblr on a Saturday night, like they probably do, this is what the people want, y’see? Thanks for listening, Hollywood Honchos. Try to remember fantasy characters are made up and don’t have to be white folks all the time. Off you go now, shoo, shoo
Agreed, Hollywood Honcho.
