'Once Upon a Time' reveals Elsa, Kristoff, and reindeer Sven
When it comes to reindeer, you know at least one. Technically, you probably know nine. But now, you definitely know 10, because a new charming caribou has entered the wintry ring. This fall… coming to a TV near you… it’s… SVEN.
The lovable reindeer is part of a whole slew of characters from the smash Disney movie Frozen, who will be joining the cast of ABC’s fairy tale saga Once Upon a Time for a large arc this fall. Snow Queen Elsa, friendly neighborhood mountain man Kristoff, wide-eyed bridezilla Anna, and the villainous (both in personality and in sideburns) Hans are among the ensemble who will join the show when season four hits the air on September 28. And, of course, the actors playing them (Georgina Haig, Scott Michael Foster, Elizabeth Lail, and Tyler Jacob Moore) will also be involved somehow. The storyline will also feature Elizabeth Mitchell in a still-mysterious role and John Rhys-Davies as patriarchal troll Pabbie.
Finally, after months of anticipation and Tumblring, ABC has unveiled the first official photos of some of these Frozen favorites in costume. We don’t know what’s going on, exactly—the Frozen arc picks up some time after the film’s events have already occurred—but we can sure guess!
Scott Michael Foster’s Kristoff gets an icy staredown (or is it loving? We don’t know your motivations, Snow Queen!) from Georgina Haig’s Elsa.
Kristoff continues to field some sort of dramatic plea from Elsa, who is likely wondering why he cut his hair without consulting her.
Kristoff enlists Sven the reindeer for help in this argument, but Sven knows better and is staying out of it. Also, because he cannot talk.
Elsa visits IKEA.
