Elsa from Frozen is now part of the Once Upon A Time world. Here are Once's creators on their plans for the character...

After that tricky diner family reunion scene, the final moments of Once Upon A Time's third season took us to a barn in which a familiar character from Disney's highest grossing film ever materialised and started letting it go all over the hay bales.

Frozen's Elsa will be part of the Once ensemble for season four, but what treatment will the character receive at the hands of Once Upon A Time's creators? 

Speaking to Entertainment Weekly, Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis assured fans that "this is Elsa from Frozen", not Hans Christian Anderson's Snow Queen. "We really really loved the movie and the benefit of being owned by Disney is that we get to take the toy off the shelf and play with it. Will there be our own elements put to it? Yes. Like we do with Snow White or Peter Pan or Captain Hook, we take our own kind of twist on it but remaining faithful to the actual essence of the character. For us, we felt that Frozen had a way that could slot into our universe that could honour the movie and also make it a part of our world."

How far along are they in the casting process for Elsa? "Today is day two of season four, so we're nowhere" was the first answer, though Horowitz assured fans, "We are starting our search". Time for a round of dream casting in the comments section. Let's start things off with the completely-unobtainable-but-wouldn't-she-be-great Elizabeth Olsen...
