A Brilliant Magical Tale
16 June, 2014
If you’ve grown up loving classical fairy tale stories like Snow White and Cinderella, you will definitely love Once Upon a Time, created by Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis. All our favorite fairy tales come alive with a new and different twist on every much loved character and story. Do Snow White and Price Charming truly live happily ever after? Does Cinderella deserve her happy ending? What makes the Evil Queen so evil? OUAT answers all this as more.
Season 1 of OUAT alternates between the past in the enchanted forest and the present in Storybrooke, Maine, where a bunch of fairy tale characters have been living for 28 years and nobody knows who they truly are due to a Dark Curse enacted by the Evil Queen. It is only Emma, the savior, who can break the curse to free them, but unfortunately neither does she believe in the curse nor in herself. It is up to Henry (Emma’s son) to convince her to break the curse. We also get to meet a whole lot of characters like Rumplestilskin, Belle, Mad-Hatter, Hansel & Gretel, the seven dwarves, Jiminy Cricket and Pinoochio.
It is a beautiful story about love and redemption that teaches us that there is a thin line between good and evil and consequences of the choices in the struggle to remain good vs. veering towards evil. Other lovely messages that we can take away are, 1) True love is the most powerful magic of all, 2) Love comes in many different forms, 3) Evil isn’t born, but made and 4) Vengeance and revenge will wreck one’s soul. Once Upon a Time has a brilliant cast that includes Lana Parrilla, Ginnifer Goodwin, Jennifer Morrison, Josh Dallas, Jared S Gilmore, Robert Carlyle, Emilie de Ravin and many others.
