little mermaid return to the sea

Once Upon a Time: Ariel returns for princess team-up!

To celebrate our Winter TV Preview (on newsstands now), EW is bringing fans 25 Scoops in 25 Days. From now until the end of the month, follow the hashtag #25Scoops25Days on Twitter and Instagram to keep up with the latest — and check EW.com/25scoops for all the news and surprises.

Once Upon a Time will soon unite the Disney Princesses!

EW has learned exclusively that JoAnna Garcia Swisher will reprise her role as Ariel on the ABC fairy tale drama this spring.

An ally of Snow White (Ginnifer Goodwin), the titular character from The Little Mermaid was last seen helping Ursula (Merrin Dungey) get her happy ending by reuniting the sea witch with her father, Poseidon (Ernie Hudson), in season 4.

However, when Ariel pops back up for at least one episode, she’ll be interacting with some very different characters. “Ariel returns and meets Princess Jasmine [Karen David] as they join Hook [Colin O’Donoghue] on an adventure as he and Emma [Jennifer Morrison] face a daunting challenge that requires a big time princess team-up,” executive producers Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis tell EW.

When Once Upon a Time returns in March, the heroes are scattered: Emma and Regina (Lana Parrilla) are struck in the wish realm after crossing paths with Robin Hood (Sean Maguire); Belle (Emilie de Ravin) and Rumple (Robert Carlyle) must venture to the Dark Realm to save their son, Gideon (Giles Matthey) from the Black Fairy (Jaime Murray); Hook and David (Josh Dallas) are tasked with finding Emma and Regina, while also trying to prevent the prophecy of Emma’s death — that is, when David isn’t taking turns being under the sleeping curse with Snow! So yeah, a princess team-up is very much needed.

Imagine that Loki is a sailor who spends his time fishing and selling said fish. Most of his life is spent on a boat/ship, traveling the seas.

One day, while ashore, he spots a figure on the horizon; a human-like thing is in the water. He gets curious and comes back every day to get a glimpse of this strange being.

Some time later, while Loki is fixing his nets, he finally sees it: an actual mermaid! The mermaid Loki has been seeing is a small little thing and appears to be shy. He eventually lures her in with little trinkets and pieces of jewelry.

Loki and the mermaid begin a sort of a friendship. Loki gives her anything that catches her eye and in return, she tells him all about the sea and its wonders. They both begin to feel deeply for each other but are too shy and afraid that they would ruin their friendship. The human/mermaid thing is also kind of tricky.

Dave, Done, And The Magical Sea

Dave, Don, And The Magical Sea


Once in a little farm

A little far away

In through the forest 

Near the old black bay


Lives a man named Dave

And a man called Don

Near by the sea shore

They all get along


All the fish and the turtles

The dolphins and the whales

And the mermaids on the rocks 

That are swishing their tails


Line by line

They wait and see

All the possible things

That go on in the sea


But time isn’t right

And it might never be

Until my little sea king

Comes returning to me


If you ever see him 

On a rock or in tree

Come into Sea World

Hear my plea


To find this ocean 

Don’t go left and don’t turn right

Just walk straight down 

To make things tight

“long ago and far away, in a water kingdom of coral and pearls, there lived a little mermaid. her name was Ondina, and she was a princess of the sea. her father, King Neptha, gave his beloved daughter any treasure she desired. all he asked in return was to hear her melodious voice everyday. however, the one thing she wanted most was not in his power to give.”

-The Little Mermaid; Fred Crump Jr.
