Wedding bells are officially ringing in Storybrooke!

Once Upon a Time’s highly anticipated musical episode is almost here, which means that we’re just a few days away from witnessing Emma Swan and Killian Jones say “I do” in a breathtaking wedding ceremony. (Trust us. It’s perfect.)

ET had the pleasure of visiting Once Upon a Time’s set in Vancouver, Canada, last month during filming of the musical matrimony, and we sat down with stars Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue for an intimate and in-depth interview that focused on each and every aspect of their on-screen wedding.

From their “honest” vows, to Emma’s “timeless” wedding gown, and their dream honeymoon – only ET has all the inside scoop straight from the stars of the series! Plus, we’ve got additional details from executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, as well as Once Upon a Time’s head costume designer Eduardo Castro.

So, shall we get started? Or, as O'Donoghue cleverly put it: who’s ready for some “music and dance and some mighty fine romance” at Captain Swan’s wedding?

Just a warning that this is the biggest Once Upon a Time article we’ve ever written, so grab a comfy seat, put your cellphone on silent and get ready to go on an emotional roller coaster of feels. And, as always, please remember to breathe!

1. The Venue: The Once showrunners confessed that they had considered a number of “other places” for Emma and Killian to tie the knot – yes, even Granny’s! – but in the end, they settled on a brand new Storybrooke location for the ceremony. “Without wanting to spoil the episode, there’s a story reason for why it’s on the roof,” Horowitz revealed. “But there’s also something to us that was super romantic about having Storybrooke as the backdrop.”

Emma and Killian will tie the knot in front of a dream-worthy sunset and surrounded by their closest friends and family. “It’s the place where they’ve kind of come together,” Horowitz continued. “Where their love has grown and where both of them as characters have grown, so seeing the whole town kind of beneath and surrounding them felt like a really cool way to do it.”

“I thought it was perfect,” Morrison dished. “We just felt, like, what better way to make it feel extra special than to have [the wedding] also be the musical episode?”

EXCLUSIVE: ‘Once Upon a Time’ Bosses Reveal New Musical Episode Secrets and If Colin O'Donoghue Will Sing!

Better start warming up those vocal cords, Oncers!

Production of the highly anticipated musical episode of Once Upon a Time is well underway and executive producers Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis are spilling exclusive new details to ET about what fans can expect when our favorite characters step into the spotlight.

Read on for inside scoop on how this episode will be a “huge part” of Once Upon a Time’s mythology, the many romantic “surprises” in store for fans, and if Colin O'Donoghue will be singing!

We actually started [planning] this around September,” Kitsis explained to ET over the phone last Friday. “There are these two composers that we met, Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner, who are big fans of the show, and ABC put us together with them because a musical is the one thing and the one request that fans have been asking for for six seasons.”

“It’s something we’re very excited about and we’ve been working on for a long time,” Horowitz concurred. “What we’ve also worked really hard to do is make this musical a part of the show, so it’s not just like a one-off episode or it’s not just like a stand-alone [special].”

You hear that, Oncers? The musical episode is not going to be some kind of a dream sequence or an alternate reality. It’s going to be a “real Once Upon a Time episode” and a key part in progressing the storyline of the series forward.

“It actually is a huge part of the mythology of the show and there are some big things that happen in the episode,” Hororwitz revealed. “Frankly, it’s been one of the challenges of doing the musical because we never wanted to do something where it was just like a to-the-side, one-off thing, and then get back to the main story. We want to see it part of the main story, which meant we had to really plan out this season with some great detail.”

Kitsis added, “And what’s fun about it is it’s the penultimate episode [of season six,] so the musical actually kicks us off into the finale.”

The musical, which begins shooting later this week in Vancouver, Canada, will feature seven songs including a solo from Jennifer Morrison’s Emma. But here’s the big question we wanted to know: Will O'Donoghue’s Killian also be lending his singing voice to the set list?

“Colin will be singing,” Horowitz confirmed.

(Deep breaths, y'all.)

There were no details provided as to what exactly O'Donoghue will be singing, but when asked if a duet between Emma and Killian is something the fans can expect to see in the musical, the EPs were coy with their responses. “We want to keep some surprises for the fans,” Horowitz shared.

“Yeah, but I would say this,” Kitsis continued. “If you were watching a Once musical, we approached it like a fan. What would the fans want to see and who would they want to see sing?”

“Well, you know you never know,” he teased when we pointed out that many fans would love to see a Captain Swan song in the mix. “It’s a show about hope, Leanne, and if you have enough of it, it might happen!”

As for Emma and Killian’s future, fans will be pleased to know that this second half of season six will “absolutely” feature many more romantic moments between The Savior and her swashbuckling leading man.

“What I can tease is that this second half will, probably, have the most romantic moment between those two in the six seasons of the show,” Kitsis dished.

(Remember to breathe!)

Many fans almost lost their minds when an engagement ring was featured in Once’s midseason trailer, so we’re curious to know if Killian might be finally be popping the question to Emma?

“At the end of the fall run of episodes, we teased that there was a ring,” Horowitz established. To which Kitsis added, “So somebody’s going to get it.”

“But to be fair, Henry did just take Violet to the dance, so we don’t know,” Kitsis quipped with a laugh.

New episodes of Once Upon a Time return this Sunday, March 5 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.

How are you feeling, Oncers? Are you excited that Colin O'Donoghue will be singing in the musical episode? Do you think a Captain Swan proposal is in our near future? Share your thoughts with @LeanneAguilera on Twitter!

Revenge is Gonna be Mine

Lots of thanks to @diamond9697 for the help with the lyrics!

Written by Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner

My dear Prince and Princess
Your offer is meaningless
Don’t give a damn ‘bout your rank
The gold in your sack
Well, it isn’t worth jack
I should make you fools go walk the plank
Your riches would fill other pirates with glee
But none of those pirates are me!
(They’re not he!)

Sing a yo, ho
Keep your jewels divine
Yo, ho
And your manners refined

'Cause even more precious
Than rum in a stein
Is revenge, revenge, revenge
And it’s gonna be mine
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine

I’ve savaged and pillaged and pilfered each village
My conquests I’m justly proud of (he’s proud of!)
Each town that I plunder
I leave torn asunder
A pirate’s life is one to love (one to love!)
And yet my heart’s hardened as hard as a rock
Won’t rest till I’ve skinned me a Croc!
(Gonna skin him a Croc!)

Sing a yo, ho
You can beg, plead and whine
But yo, ho
You are wasting your time

The Croc cut my hand
Wanna tear out his spine
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine
Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine

Once I sailed toward a horizon (horizon)
Where I might find happiness waiting
Until the Croc destroyed my life
And filled me with hate unabating

Some say: Let it go!
But I say: Hell no!
I’m finally on the right path
Soon the Dark One will feel (he will feel)
The fire of this pirate’s wrath
(Feel the pirate’s, feel the pirate’s)

Sing a yo, ho
I’ll slaughter the swine
Yo, ho
Must be fate’s design
At last our tales will again intertwine

Revenge, revenge, revenge
Is gonna be mine
(Revenge, revenge, revenge)
Oh it’s gonna be, oh it’s gonna be
Oh it’s gonna be mine

(Revenge, revenge, revenge)
Oh it’s gonna be, oh it’s gonna be
Oh it’s gonna be mine!

There Will Be Eight Tracks

We’ve already gotten a sneak peek of Hook’s musical number, but all the songs will be released on iTunes ahead of the episode on Friday, March 5. The official tracklist is as follows:

1. “Powerful Magic” - Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas
2. “The Queen Sings” - Lana Parrilla, Lee Arenberg, Tony Amendola, Beverley Elliott, Ginnifer Goodwin, Josh Dallas

It Will Include Flashbacks

Looks like we’ll be heading back to the Enchanted Forest for this episode. Before Emma is born, Snow White wishes upon a star, resulting in the entire kingdom singing their feelings.

Emma and Hook Will Have a Wedding Duet

The couple will share a special song together during their wedding ceremony, complete with a grand dance number.

It Will Make You Cry

Not only is the episode supposed to be all about Captain Hook and Emma’s big day, but it will also show just how far the town’s Savior has come. “For us,” the show’s creator Eddy Kitsis told TVLine, “the most important thing [about the wedding] is that it was intimate and that you really understood that this was a real milestone in Emma’s growth.” Yep, there will definitely be waterworks.

Emma’s Solo Will Be Extra Sentimental

The series really paid close attention to detail for this musical episode. The song, “Emma’s Theme,” is actually adapted from the character’s musical score throughout the past six seasons.

There Could Be a Few Bumps Along the Road

Even though true love usually overcomes all obstacles, the Black Fairy is still in town to cause trouble. “Weddings on the TV series Once Upon a Time traditionally are fraught with unexpected circumstances,” the show’s creator Adam Horowitz teased. “And this is no different.”

When It Airs

Captain Hook and Emma’s ceremony will take place when the musical episode airs on May 7.

'Once Upon a Time': Everything You Need to Know About the Musical Episode

We know Emma and Hook are getting married in the upcoming musical episode, but what we don’t know quite yet is why — and EW hunted down Once Upon a Time executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis to get some answers.

But first, here’s what we know so far: The musical hour, which will air Sunday, May 7 at 8 p.m. ET on ABC, is titled “The Song in Your Heart.” As we previously revealed, the hour will feature seven original songs from Alan Zachary, Michael Weiner, and OUAT composer Mark Isham.

Among those singing during the episode are Emma (Jennifer Morrison), Regina (Lana Parrilla), Hook (Colin O’Donoghue), Charming (Josh Dallas), Snow (Ginnifer Goodwin), Zelena (Rebecca Mader), Henry (Jared Gilmore), Granny (Beverley Elliott), Grumpy (Lee Arenberg), Geppetto (Tony Amendola), and more. Here’s what else you need to know:

ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY: Why is everyone breaking into song?
ADAM HOROWITZ: What we can say is that we want to keep the machinations a little bit of a surprise, but that it’s key to Emma’s journey — the journey that began in the pilot and that we’ve seen throughout the whole series. The singing and the musical is tied directly to Emma.

Why did you decide to do a musical for Emma’s wedding?
EDWARD KITSIS: At the beginning of the year, we met with these composers, Alan and Michael, who we love. When we started talking about the musical, we wanted it to be a special episode. We thought Emma’s wedding felt like the natural milestone for us.
HOROWITZ: It felt like the right place. Hopefully, when you see how the device works within the episode and how it relates to Emma and her character journey, it all seems to make sense that it would lead up to this. It worked on both a plot and character level, and it allowed us the fun of actually doing a musical episode.
KITSIS: One of the fun things about a musical is you emotionally say what you’re thinking in song. For Emma, who has been a very guarded and walled-up person, the wedding signifies the growth of her being able to trust someone again and letting her walls down, so we felt like the musical was perfectly a match with that.
HOROWITZ: All the songs in the musical are designed — and we hope this audience feels this way when they watch it — to not be to just stop and have a song; they’re designed to actually reveal character and move the story forward. Each song is constructed in a way that’s dealing with what’s going on with the characters and what’s going on with the story. We’re trying to move toward something. It builds to that wedding, which — like everything in the episode — we hope is filled with a few other surprises.

What can you tease for some of the songs we’ll be hearing?
KITSIS: The songs are all original. They’re specific to each character. Hook’s song, and the Evil Queen, Snow and Charming, it’s like their episodes all individually have their own tone to them, I think the songs are as well.
HOROWITZ: Stylistically, each song is suited to the character’s journey, so that when we see Hook singing, we can say that song does take place in a flashback, and it fits tonally in what a pirate would be thinking and what Hook would be thinking and therefore singing at the time we see him, which is kind of a pirate with a dark streak. In the same respect, when we see Snow and Charming’s song, there’s a duet and a true love element to it. Through all of them, we try to have the songs and the style of the songs tie into who the characters are and what they’re going through. The composers did an incredible job. These songs surpassed our expectations when we heard them, and then when we heard our cast and what they could do with them, it surpassed even further. So we’re really excited about it.
KITSIS: And they’re catchy.
HOROWITZ: Yeah, these are really fun, catchy, cool songs, and different styles from a ballad to real rock & roll to all sorts of stuff.

Are the characters aware that it’s odd that they’re singing? Do you go meta in that sense?
KITSIS: I would say yes.
HOROWITZ: Yup, it’s not just like singing and nobody acknowledges that songs are happening. They definitely acknowledge that there is singing going on and that it’s an unusual development, because through the previous 130 episodes, there hasn’t been singing.

When it came to singing and dancing, was there anyone in the cast who surprised you?
KITSIS: That is a really tough question because we knew the ones that were singing all had musical theater backgrounds.
HOROWITZ: Pongo.
KITSIS: Yes, Pongo really good. [Laughs.] No, we kind of went in knowing, but I’ll be honest, about a month before, Ginny [Goodwin] kept saying, “Oh, I can’t sing, I can’t sing,” and then when we heard her voice, we were like, “Why did you lie to us?” So I went in thinking, “Well, every time she sings happy birthday, it sounds great,” but she kept saying she couldn’t sing, and then when we heard her, it was phenomenal. I was only surprised in the sense that she told us she couldn’t and she could, so we have to call her out as a liar here at EW. She can sing!

One question that’s come up a lot: Is Rumple going to sing?
KITSIS: For that, we’ll have to wait until the musical airs!

Once Upon a Time Gets Musical: Which Star Was Terrified? Who Belts Just One Line? And Why Is Everyone Singing?!
Whistle while you work…. When you wish upon a star…. Let it go-o-o-o-o-…. Many a Disney fairy tale has been punctuated by memorable tunes, but ABC’s Once Upon a Time has nev…
By Matt Webb Mitovich

Now, for the million-dollar question asked of every TV series that braves a musical episode: Why is everyone suddenly singing?

Simply said: We learn in flashbacks that Snow White, when pregnant with Emma, inadvertently cast a spell that makes highly emotional people only able to express themselves through song. That allows for musical numbers both in the Enchanted Forest of yesteryear as well in present-day Storybrooke, when the spell resurfaces.

MAKING BEAUTIFUL MUSIC TOGETHER | Although at least one cast member assumed that if this day came, Once Upon a Time would recycle famous Disney tunes, that was never the plan. Instead, series creators Adam Horowitz and Eddy Kitsis last summer sat down with songwriters (and Once fans!) Alan Zachary and Michael Weiner to hash out the grand plan, which would lead to seven original tunes being penned. “After we let the cast know [about the musical episode],” says Horowitz, “they got together with the composers, to tailor all the songs to each actor and their character specifically.”

As a result, “They ended up presenting us with these gorgeous, original and really catchy pieces,” Goodwin raves. “I really can’t see them not being hits.” Morrison, who has a solo, concurs, saying, “They wrote the songs for our voices, because they knew our ranges and where we were comfortable.” As O’Donoghue puts it, “Just as the show takes those sort of characters that everybody knows and makes them fresh and new, in a sense that’s what’s happened [with the music].”

ABC PR: 6.20 The Song in Your Heart - Zachary and Weiner interview

EXCLUSIVE: 'Once Upon a Time' Bosses Reveal New Musical Episode Secrets and If Colin O'Donoghue Will Sing!

EXCLUSIVE: The 7 Biggest Secrets From Hook & Emma's 'Once Upon a Time' Wedding: Vows, Honeymoon & Much More!

Wedding bells are officially ringing in Storybrooke!

Once Upon a Time’s highly anticipated musical episode is almost here, which means that we’re just a few days away from witnessing Emma Swan and Killian Jones say “I do” in a breathtaking wedding ceremony. (Trust us. It’s perfect.)

ET had the pleasure of visiting Once Upon a Time’s set in Vancouver, Canada, last month during filming of the musical matrimony, and we sat down with stars Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue for an intimate and in-depth interview that focused on each and every aspect of their on-screen wedding.

From their “honest” vows, to Emma’s “timeless” wedding gown, and their dream honeymoon – only ET has all the inside scoop straight from the stars of the series! Plus, we’ve got additional details from executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis, as well as Once Upon a Time’s head costume designer Eduardo Castro.

So, shall we get started? Or, as O'Donoghue cleverly put it: who’s ready for some “music and dance and some mighty fine romance” at Captain Swan’s wedding?

Just a warning that this is the biggest Once Upon a Time article we’ve ever written, so grab a comfy seat, put your cellphone on silent and get ready to go on an emotional roller coaster of feels. And, as always, please remember to breathe!

1. The Venue: The Once showrunners confessed that they had considered a number of “other places” for Emma and Killian to tie the knot – yes, even Granny’s! – but in the end, they settled on a brand new Storybrooke location for the ceremony. “Without wanting to spoil the episode, there’s a story reason for why it’s on the roof,” Horowitz revealed. “But there’s also something to us that was super romantic about having Storybrooke as the backdrop.”

2. The Suit: In case you missed it, we already dished a little on Killian’s dashing (and “really soft!”) suit, but did you know that black velvet wasn’t always the original plan? Once’s head costume designer, Eduardo Castro, spilled an “interesting note” about Hook’s suit to ET during an email interview.

“Originally we had an ivory gabardine suit made and, somehow, it did not hit the mark,” Castro wrote. “At the very last moment, we threw out the ivory and went for a black velvet Burberry jacket that was far more in keeping with Hook’s demeanor.”

Kitsis furthered that he and Horowitz had a very specific vision in mind when it came to Hook’s look. “Adam and I both thought that Hook needed to have a tux that reflects his personality, so you can’t go from leather to just a basic tux,” he said. “We felt like he had to have a little edge to it, so the velvet felt like the Hook version of fancy.”

When asked if he feels “suave” in his wedding attire, O'Donoghue was bashful with his response. “I guess so,” he chuckled. “I hope it looks OK.”

“You look amazing!” Morrison chimed in while brushing a piece of lint off of O'Donoghue’s sleeve. “He’s been getting a little jealous about all of the attention the dress has been getting, so I’m trying to butter him up a little bit about his velvet jacket.”

Witches, Dark Ones, and evil curses have nothing on the song in Emma Swan’s heart on Once Upon a Time.

ABC’s fairy tale drama aired a special musical episode toward the end of its sixth season. In “The Song in Your Heart,” Emma (Jennifer Morrison) struggles to fight back against the Black Fairy, and it isn’t until she hears the music embedded deep inside her via mom Snow White’s wish that she truly comes into her own.

The song “Emma’s Theme” is a powerful anthem that allows Emma to realize her parents and loved ones “placed a song inside my heart/ more powerful than you.”

In this exclusive behind-the-scenes featurette, songwriters Michael Weiner and Alan Zachary explain how they developed “Emma’s Theme” — which is based on the overall show theme, composed by Mark Isham.

“A really great experience for us was taking Mark’s theme, which is so brilliant, and making lyrics work for it,” they say.

Isham’s theme was first played in OUAT’s pilot, when Prince Charming approaches Snow White’s coffin, and it plays over the end credits of every episode.

And of course, executive producer David H. Goodman adds, “The way Jennifer Morrison performs it is just fantastic.”

Once Upon a Time returns for its seventh season Friday, Oct. 6 at 8 p.m. on ABC.
