  • So apparently there's going to be a Once Upon a Time spin-off happening which will feature Alice and her adventures in Wonderland. I've just heard about it, and I'm wondering will this wiki be writing the pages about it and doing all the stuff? Or will you make a Once: Wonderland wiki seperate to this one? 

    I'm very curious and excited to see if they'll make any Once Upon a Time references in this show. But I know that they've already cast Alice and the Knave of Hearts (however the actor is different) :( Anyway, give me your thoughts.

    • I hope the show gets terrible ratings or something. I really don't care to see a totally recasted "spin-off".

      Hopefully, Once: Wonderland will not even be picked up for series. The more information anyone gets about it, the more horrible it sounds. Also, NBC ordered a pilot for a show titled Wonderland. From what I read about the NBC version, it sounds way more original.... i.e. the villian, the Queen, is the former Alice.

      I heard that too, so I think ABC is just trying to cash in on the whole Wonderland thing. I wouldn't mind it as much if ABC just started an original Wonderland series, instead of doing a spin-off.

    • Wow,  one minor character form OUAT is re-cast for a major role in it's spinoff and people are wishing it's demise.  It's not like it's a continuing series.  13 episode story from start to finish over a 3 month hiatus common to many shows thus preventing reruns and 2 week hiatus here, 1 month hiatus there and such.


      On the other hand, making Alice The Evil Queen just sounds like a horrible idea.  Granted, she did get crowned as Queen #3 alongside the white and red queens in Through the Lookingglass.  Little Clara versus Evil Alice just sounds like a load of... pepper (if you get what I mean).

      A spinoff is supposed to fit in with the continuity of the original series.

    • Recasting people doesn't mess up the continuity. Besides, this show takes place in a different world, and spinoff usually only rarely touch on the series it spun from.

      But Spy, I think you're confused. It is common to order 13 episodes AT FIRST, after a pilot is greenlit. This happened to OUaT, even. This lets the network feel out the series. During the broadcasting of the first few eps, they decide if they want to order the reason of the season, or cancel. IF they order 13 episodes, it may or may not be all they order. Ordering 13 doesn't mean the story will be 13 episodes only.

      I get that, but if all of the characters look totally different then they did on OUAT it will kind of ruin it, at least for me.

      Google it. There's more articles mentioning that Jefferson is NOT being recast.

    • I think its a great idea, and I'd love to watch it when it comes out, perhaps while the normal Once is on hiatus, we can all watch the Wonderland show before the premere of season 3. Its really a great idea, just think of the stories that could be told about the land that only appeared two times in the Once show. I do wonder what if Once had more of this "Expanded Universe" thing like that of Star Wars. This franchise at least is going to include Once, OW, and Shadow of the Queen (the upcoming graphic novel coming in September) until even more might be added if OW is a success as the original was.

      You are missing "REAWAKENED" by Odette Beane. the novel based on the first season.

      But weren't there reports saying ABC, Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis want to set it up like American Horror Story, that is as one season with 13 episodes and a beginning, middle and end? There wouldn't be any time for more episodes, anyway, if they really want to air it during some sort of "mid-season hiatus" for OUAT...

      The Kave of Hearts from Once: Wonderland will probably be a complete new character, not just a recast.

      Just to let everyone know of course...frankly I'm having a few mixed feelings about a spinoff..

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • yes, they cast Alice for their TEST FOOTAGE. I'm not sure what your point is. XD Casting characters doesn't make it any more likely to materialize. It's not even a full pilot.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • Yes I know THAT. I just thought it'd be worht a mention. Oy...just keeping people up to date here, for those who are interested.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • We're all getting too excited too quickly. It's just test footage.

        Preparing Editor Spell
    • To be honest, I'm a little mixed about it. I mean, yes, its only test footage and if things go throught then Once may get a spinoff, whoopee ha ha hooray...but I'm concerned whether its going to be canon or not, or if it may have some affect on Once itself or any of that kind of business. Not that these spinoffs ever do of course, but I would still prefer it if the series didn't really have a connection to OUaT...but that's just me.

    • Well now the name is Once Upon a Time in Wonderland!

      To be quite honest, it seems really interesting. I'd prefer if Once didn't go on a huge break for it, though, and it were to air in the summer. Seems like that's what they're doing, though.

      The Knave of Hearts in Once is adorable. He may be minor, but it may be weird. Who knows, maybe the Knave of Once took over from OuaTiW's Knave.

      I love AAiW, so personally I'm really looking forward to this.

    • I think we can think of planning  a WIKI, or sister wiki or continuing in this wiki, when the spin off is actually announced.

      And I don't know why people won't give this spin off a chance before wishing it ill. For me, I like all sorts of spin offs, as it usually gives another point of view, some other adorable character, whom we like but who does not have much to do on main show.

      I woul very much like to see what they do with this spin off.


      oh and Regina being Alice will be such a surprise. Maybe thats the reason, when she sent her mother through mirror, Corra went to wonderland and Regina knew where she sent Corra. A younger and innocent regina, while playing, goes down the rabbit hole. Kinda interesting.

    • There already is a Once Upon a Time in Wonderland wikia in the works here: once-wonderland.wikia.com. Of course, it's still a very small wiki and not much to work with at the moment, especially since it's made so early when production for the series has not even been fully filmed yet nor have they said if the series has actually been officialized and when it's going to air  and such. In the situation it does become a full blown series that airs on tv and they have episodes ready to air, the Once Upon a Time in Wonderland wikia could become a sister wiki to the Once Upon a Time one. But it's all hypothetical at this point.

    • For citation's sake, this is why I don't trust fansites when it comes to giving out news or new information. They give out the information, but don't bother posting where is the original source of where they got the news from. How do they expect people to believe it to be true when they don't show that? Even if the information later turns out to be accurate, I just don't understand the point of posting something, and then leaning on both sides of "oh it's legit information" but yet also saying "oh, no, it might be just a rumor", which is shown by the website adding that post under both the categories of "Cast" and "Rumors".

      IMDB is not considered a viable source link to confirm upcoming characters or appearances. Or at least, it's not on this wikia. IMDB can be edited by anyone, and they have had false information in before (such as episode titles, which turned out to be wrong).
