The ‘Once Upon A Time’ season five premiere is over a month away, but the cast shared an exciting sneak peek of the upcoming season at Disney’s D23 Expo on Aug. 15. Click to WATCH!

Season five of Once Upon A Time is going to be epic. With Emma (Jennifer Morrison) becoming the new Dark One, the crew is going to have to step it up to save her from total doom. At Disney’s D23 Expo on Aug. 15, the cast previewed the upcoming season with a clip of the premiere’s opening moments! Brace yourselves, Oncers. It’s going to be a bumpy ride.


Emma vanishes after sacrificing herself and taking on the powers of the Dark One. The gang stands there shocked by what just happened. Regina is the first to speak. “How could she be so stupid?” Regina asks.

Snow, through tears, makes sure Regina knows that Emma just saved her life. However, Regina notes that “now she’s a problem for all of us.” Snow still has hope that Emma still has good in her, but Regina quickly reminds her that Emma just got sucked up by a “vortex of evil.” 

Hook makes his move amidst the back-and-forth between Regina and Snow. He picks up the dagger and says, “If I can’t find her, I can damn well bring her to me.” Yes, #CaptainSwan forever. He tries to summon her, but it doesn’t work. Hook doesn’t understand, he’s supposed to be able to bring her back from anywhere in the world with that dagger.

Regina then reveals that reason why. “She’s not in our world.”

Once Upon A Time premieres Sept. 27 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC.
