Is it necessary to watch the rest of the show to understand Sebastian’s episodes?
No. All you really need to know is that the town of Storybrooke, where the show takes place, is inhabited by people who are under a spell. They are all originally from another land, where they have alter egos as fairy tale characters. The spell makes it so that none of them remember their previous lives - except for Jefferson and one or two others.

Synopsis/Character Description:
Jefferson, like the other residents of Storybrooke, Maine, is stuck there due to a curse, and cannot leave. He is one of the few people in town who knows what is truly going on. His own daughter doesn’t even remember him. He’s desperate to find a way back to the other world, and back to his daughter.

Melody Time

33 in x of animated feature film history
Release: May 27th, 1948
Country: USA
Directors: Jack Kinney, Clyde Geronimi, Hamilton Luske, Wilfred Jackson

Made up of sequences set to popular music and folk music, Melody Time is, like Make Mine Music before it, the popular music version of Fantasia. 

The film consists of 7 musical segments––Once Upon a Wintertime (sung by Frances Langford), about two romantic young lovers in December; Bumble Boogie (performed by Freddy Martin and His Orchestra), a surrealistic battle for a solitary bumble bee as he tries to ward off a visual and musical frenzy; The Legend of Johnny Appleseed (narration and voices by Dennis Day); Little Toot (sung by The Andrews Sisters), based on the story of the same name by Hardie Gramatky, in which a small tugboat wants to be just like his father; Trees (performed by Fred Waring and the Pennsylvanians), a recitation of the 1913 poem ‘Trees’ by Joyce KilmerBlame It on the Samba (featuring The Dinning Sisters and organist Ethel Smith), in which Donald Duck and José Carioca meet the Aracuan Bird, who introduces them to the samba; and Pecos Bill (with Roy Rogers, Bob Nolan, and the Sons of the Pioneers), the tale of Texas’ famous hero.

Melody Time is considered to be the last anthology feature made by the Walt Disney Animation Studios. They were ‘financially (and artistically) lightweight productions meant to bring in profits [to allow the studio to] return to fairy tale single-narrative feature form.’

This was the last film The Andrews Sisters took part in. They sang throughout the 10 minute segment known as Little Toot. Andrews Sisters member Maxine said: ‘It was quite an experience. On the wall at the studio they had the whole story in picture form. Two songwriters played the score and Walt Disney explained it to us. It was a new thing for Disney. We sang the narrative. It was very exciting to work with Disney-he was such a gentleman.’

The two children who hear the story of Pecos Bill (Bobby Driscoll and Luana Patten) also appear together in Song of the South and So Dear to My Heart. Patten also appears in Fun and Fancy Free.

At the time of its release, the film received ‘generally unfavorable reviews’. However, a 1948 review for The News-Sentinel said the ‘charm and skill’ that one had to expect from Disney is ‘delightful entertainment’ for all children.

Melody Time was the last feature film to include Donald Duck & José Carioca until the 1988 movie Who Framed Roger Rabbit.”

Another screencap redraw I did because I just had to//

A trend? I think not

Can I just say that every female cast member that is a part of Once Upon a Time, regardless of how many episodes they feature, every single one of them loves Lana. Like every single one. Even JMo during the earlier years of the show before C$ was formed. Bex and Lana have ruined whole takes because they were legit humping each other. Kristen openly broadcasts on social media how she wants to lick Lana’s face. Ginny and Lana go out together even if it’s for McDonalds. Gabrielle was blatantly checking Lana out at SDCC 2017 like Lana just brings that inner gay out and she loves physical affection so it’s a win win all around


Once Upon A Time season 6: Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue preview Emma and Hook's wedding

By Ruchinka Upadhyaya

This Sunday’s (7 May) episode of Once Upon A Time season 6 will feature Emma Swan and Killian ‘Captain Hook’ Jones fairy tale wedding, and the looming threat of Black Fairy will apparently not dampen the couple’s big day.

Actors Jennifer Morrison and Colin O'Donoghue, who play Emma and Hook previewed the big wedding episode. O'Donoghue told TV Line, “At this point in time, they’ve just decided whatever’s going to happen is going to happen. We need to make the most of time that we have together now because it’s Storybrooke and you never know what’s going to happen.”

“There’s a little glimmer of hope in the middle of a pretty desperate situation,” he added. Co-star Morrison too echoed similar sentiments and told the outlet, “And we know that we want to be together. We know there are no doubts about that. We just want to move ahead with it and enjoy the moment.”

In flashback

Snow and Charming make a special wish that Emma will be protected. The result of their wish has the whole kingdom bursting into song which infuriates the Evil Queen. Meanwhile in Storybrooke, the Black Fairy announces her plans to unleash another curse on the town while Emma and Hook prepare for their wedding.

This Sunday’s musical episode will feature a solo song by Morrison titled Emma’s Theme. The House actress said, “A lot of the song that we shot yesterday (Morrison’s solo, titled "Emma’s Theme”) is about Emma getting to that place in her life, which I think kind of marks the final transformation from ugly duckling to swan. She overcomes the last of her fears and baggage and realizes that this song has been within her, her whole life, and it holds a power that she didn’t realize.“

O'Donoghue too previewed happy moment in the episode. "In [the group number] or the previous scene that we filmed, it’s all happiness. There’s no negative aspect. They know that what’s going to happen is going to happen, and they don’t care. They’re just expressing how much they love each other, and…” he said.

EXCLUSIVE: Lana Parrilla Spills on Evil Queen's 'Challenging' Song & Connecting With 'Once Upon a Time' Fans!

From Evil Queen to dancing queen!

This Sunday’s highly anticipated musical episode of Once Upon a Time features a truly sensational solo from the famed Snow White villain, so we called up the on-screen queen herself Lana Parrilla to get the behind-the-scenes secrets on how she prepared for her “Ziggy Stardust moment” and the challenges that came with it.

“I wish that we would’ve done more than one musical episode – that’s how great it was!” Parrilla dished to ET over the phone while she was vacationing with her mother, Dolores Dee Azzara, in Spain last month.

“At first, I was nervous because I thought, ‘Oh god, I’d better figure out how to really sing.!’ I mean, the whole world is going to be watching, so I’m not going to pretend I’m a great singer,” she explained. “I’m just going to do the best that I can. I kind of channeled my nerves into excitement, so I got really excited about it and I thought, 'I’m just going to go with this and have a blast!’”

“And being that I’m the Evil Queen, you can almost, like, hide behind her a little bit. I’m like, 'Well, if she doesn’t do a good job, it’s on her, not me!’” she added with a laugh. The brunette beauty dished that it was an “interesting challenge” to sing her song, “Love Doesn’t Stand a Chance,” because Parrilla typically gives the Evil Queen a deeper voice than her own. “The song in itself was quite challenging because it had different tempos. It was fast and then it was slow and I had to sing in a lower register, which is not where I normally would sing, so it was challenging in that regard,” she said.

“But overall, it was awesome!” she gushed. “I loved every moment of it! I had a blast and I danced a lot as the queen. There’s a whole dance number that I end up doing, which was so much fun, so I really, really enjoyed that.” Parrilla revealed that the Evil Queen’s costumes are usually very confining and she has a limited range of movement, so Once Upon a Time’s head costume designer, Eduardo Castro, altered her gown for the musical so she could fully embrace the choreography.

“I kind of move my arms and throw them down. I get down on the ground and I slam down on the ground and it’s very sort of a violent song, which was fun,” she said. “I think it had a little bit of Tim Curry in Rocky Horror Picture-show-meets-David Bowie, which I’m a huge fan of, so I was really excited to have my own Ziggy Stardust moment.”

The actress said that going through all the different stages of preparing for the musical brought the Once actors even closer together. “It was a different experience than what we’re used to doing every day in the last six years on Once, and it was something new and exciting and everyone in the cast is so talented,” she said. “Everyone was so supportive of one another and everyone was smiling around the set and people were humming the tunes. I’m still humming Rebecca’s song!”

When asked what she thought about the fact that the musical episode would also be featuring Emma and Killian’s wedding, Parrilla was quick to sing its praises. “I thought it was awesome! I think everyone has been really excited for that. It’s just really beautiful to see a really happy moment because there’s typically not a lot of happiness going on in the show, even though everyone is searching for their happy ending,” she said with a chuckle.

“There’s also a musical number that takes place at the wedding, and for everyone to be a part of that, it’s really fun and everyone looked beautiful,” she continued. “Just to get kind of dressed up to go to a wedding was really fun, so I thought it was great. I thought it was super appropriate and a great opportunity to tie the two in: the wedding and the musical.”

With the fate of the series still up in the air, Parrilla is “open to seeing what happens” if ABC were to greenlight a season seven, but no matter, what she’s thankful fans have become so connected to the character of Regina over the past six years.

“I think it’s phenomenal that so many people have been inspired and their lives have changed because of Once Upon a Time, and to see how Regina has touched so many lives because of her journey and her own story and her own inner struggles, it’s remarkable. I did not expect Regina to have this impact in so many people,” she said. “I’m elated because I feel like I have a huge part in it and that’s something that I’ve always wanted to do in my career, which is to be a part of something that has changed lives and inspired people to be better and I’ve been able to do that with Regina.”

While Parrilla loves that her journey as Regina has promoted a message of “self love” and “acceptance” to all the Once Upon a Time audience, she confessed that it makes her “really sad” when she sees fans spreading negativity towards one another on social media.

“Sometimes I see a lot of negativity on social media and I don’t really understand it. I don’t support it, and I don’t necessarily engage in it, because if you start paying attention and engaging, it just gets worse,” she said. “And so I filter out – not that I physically filter it out, but I mentally filter out – and I just decide that I don’t need to read the negativity and I want other people to do the same thing,” she continued.

“I think a lot of our youth kind of focuses too much on the negative things that are being said and you have a choice. You can just look the other way and focus on the positives and only engage in the positive messages and let that be the reality and not engage in the negativity and the bullying,” she added. “But I really despise it. I don’t like seeing and I don’t think there’s any room for it. There’s enough evilness in the world and darkness in the world, let’s not be a part of it.”

'Once Upon a Time' Fashion Spotlight: 4 Secrets You Need to Know About Emma Swan's Magical Wardrobe!

For the past five seasons, Once Upon a Time has featured some seriously spellbinding costumes, and it’s all thanks to the series’ head designer: Eduardo Castro!

Castro, who is currently nominated for a Costume Designers Guild Award in the “Outstanding Fantasy Television Series” category, has been with the ABC drama since the very beginning.

“I never, ever thought that I would have been here for five years,” the designer recently spilled. “It’s been a wonderful journey and it’s interesting to see how the show has morphed and grown.”

To help get fans even more pumped for the highly anticipated 100th episode, Castro took time out of his fairy tale-filled schedule to give ETonline the exclusive secrets behind four of Emma Swan’s (Jennifer Morrison) most iconic looks.

1. Lady in (Many Shades of) Red:

Emma Swan’s red jacket has become an iconic piece of clothing on the hit drama, but the story behind the selection is what’s truly surprising. “The original jacket was bought around the corner from my hotel room the day before we shot [the pilot] and it was a very inexpensive jacket,” Castro shared. “It was like 89 dollars, and the jacket that we have grown into, that we’ve remade and redone, costs almost four thousand dollars!”

So, what makes this new design even more magical than the original? “It’s a custom jacket that suits her body and it’s my take on improving that jacket,” Castro explained. “[Jennifer] wasn’t in love with the first jacket, really. As we went along, we made improvements for her, and the jacket is a little sleeker and a little more sophisticated and it fits better and it’s better leather.”

Now, 100 episodes later, Castro has about “25 to 30” different versions of Emma’s red jacket. “There are some that are a brighter red, a medium red, red brown – there’s quite a few,” he said.

Looking ahead this season, fans can expect a special blast into the past starring Emma’s signature look. “We just had a particular sequence where Emma has discovered her red jacket,” Castro shared. “It’s a flashback but the interesting thing is that the red jacket has morphed into a much more sophisticated design than the original jacket.”

2. Storybrooke Chic Is Harder Than You Think:

In an interesting twist, it turns out that Emma’s most casual looks in Storybrooke are actually the most difficult for the designer to create. “Everyday modern clothes are actually very hard to do,” Castro confessed.

“It’s actually quite nice and easy when we do the fantasy clothes,” he revealed. “But really finding a T-shirt or a pair of jeans or a little dress or shoes is hard for everyday Emma. Thank God that there aren’t a lot [of those looks] and it’s not just Emma’s everyday wardrobe, it’s any modern pieces.

Castro added, "Emma hasn’t had as much of an opportunity to wear the fantasy clothes. She did this year for the first time.”

“The other day, Jennifer Morrison came up and hugged me and said, ‘Oh my God, where were all those fairy tale days when I wore all those [modern] clothes?’” Castro recalled. “It is a lot easier to do fairy tale clothes because the actresses get all excited about putting corsets on and sparkly fabrics and there’s an excitement about something that’s not just off the rack.”

3. Creating Camelot Couture:

When we asked Castro about another potential trip down the aisle, the head costume designer revealed another surprising secret: he hates creating wedding dresses! “I just never related to them, but we do more wedding dresses than anything,” he explained.

“Well, we didn’t do a wedding dress this season, but we sort of did one on Jennifer Morrison,” Castro recalled. “It was a white lace dress in Camelot.”

Fashion Fun Fact: It was actually Morrison’s idea to create the ethereal-inspired gown for Emma. “She had some ideas and she brought in some sheets and fabric ideas,” he said. “Jennifer is very good at sending me ideas and we sort of work together and we morph a look together.”

“It was a really a simple situation,” Castro said of the dress’ romantic design. “But sometimes, the simple situations are harder to do, so that took some time because it was all about the fit. I personally liked the ivory cape she wore in the show.”

4. Deconstructing the Dark Swan Details:

Fans were floored when Once debuted Emma’s Dark Swan transformation and it became a major part of the character’s wardrobe in the first half of season five. But now that Emma is officially no longer filled with dark magic, Castro is thrilled to have a bit of a break from the costume.

“I’m fine with it being gone for a while,” he said with a laugh. “I think it was a very treacherous piece to do and we re-did it a few times.”

Oncers can look forward to a revamped version of the Dark Swan suit in upcoming episodes. “In the first part of the underworld, you’ll see is the original idea, but then Jennifer really thought that it lacked texture,” Castro said. “So we re-cut everything and did it out of more snakeskin and crocodile.”

“It was a combination of things,” Castro continued. “We took elements from this jacket and that jacket and morphed them together, so it’s the same but re-cut to give it a little more texture.”

The 18th Annual Costume Designers Guild Awards will take place on Tuesday, Feb. 23 at the Beverly Hilton Hotel.

Once Upon a Time returns with its 100th episode on Sunday, March 6 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
