ABC released the first official promo for the Nov. 3 episode, which features the underwater frenemies’ big debut!
Of all the classic fairytales Once Upon A Time has woven into its increasingly complicated universe, The Little Mermaid has definitely been the most highly anticipated — and at long last, the wait is almost over! JoAnna Garcia flips her fins for the first time on the show’s Nov. 3 episode as mer-princess Ariel, and as we saw in this first promo, the story’s infamous sea witch will also be making a surprising appearance.
I say “surprising” because, in typical Once fashion, the eight-limbed enemy will be presented a little differently than you might remember. In this version, Ursula will be played by Lana Parrilla, similarly to the way Once‘s Beast doubled as Rumpelstiltskin (Robert Carlyle).
The promo also reveals Ariel’s first on-land meeting with Prince Eric (Gil McKinney), which we can only assume will end in tragedy. This is Once Upon A Time, after all!
