Elsa (Georgina Haig), Anna (Elizabeth Lail) and Kristoff (Scott Michael Foster) are all making their way to Storybrooke in the upcoming Season 4 premiere, “A Tale of Two Sisters,” and no one — from the viewers to the showrunners to ABC execs — can seem to “Let It Go.”
At the 2014 summer TV press tour on Tuesday (July 15), ABC President Paul Lee spoke to a few reporters about whether or not he thought it was too soon to bring “Frozen” in to the “OUAT” world.
“Absolutely not,” Lee says. “‘Frozen’ is a wonderful asset. John Lasseter himself flew up to Vancouver. He’s integrally related to the way we’re going to do that. And [executive producers] Adam [Horowitz] and Eddie [Kitsis] always have a twist on the story, so you can imagine their twist is going to be different. But no, I think it’s a perfect time.”
And does Lee imagine a future where the “OUAT” version of “Frozen” could be its own spinoff series?
“We don’t have immediate plans for a spinoff,” Lee says, “but they’re so inventive, those two.”
To be clear, that is not a “no.” “OUAT” Season 4 premieres Sunday, Sept. 28 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
