I mean, we’ve seen all these superheroes blow stuff up in every which way from Sunday, so I don’t think anyone really cares about—well, maybe they do. But I think the really great thing about [Diana Prince] is that she leads with compassion, and love, and hopefulness, and these values that we always seem to be in dire need of.
There are so many different storylines because ultimately everything is connected. But at first what you’re seeing is all these different characters who could absolutely be the stars of their own show. So it looks like they are completely disconnected and have no effect on each other whatsoever. - Samuel Barnett
HUGE thanks to @jjosh-lyman / johnsfkennedys (twitter) for sending me her audio recording from the post-screening q&a. ** Please note: the first few minutes are missing and I transcribed this to the best of my abilities **
1. What’s it like working with Ginny?
Josh: It’s been… It’s been.. What has it been?
Ginny: Magical? (Audience laughs)
Josh: (laughs) It’s been magical. No, it has, it’s been–
Ginny: The best thing that’s ever happened to you! (Audience laughs)
Josh: It’s been, it has been a magical situation. You’re working with another actor who knows you so well. You can be very vulnerable, you can be very open, you can be very brave, you can do all those kinds of things. So yeah, it’s a real gift.
Moderator: I’m feeling the feels, y’all, are you?
2. What is your favorite Disney character or movie?
Adam: This will sound phony, but it is Snow White. (Audience goes aw)
Ginny: Right answer again!
Adam: It’s true!
Josh: I’m really glad we came to you.
Adam: It was the first movie that I remember seeing as a child and it clearly made an impression.
Ginny: I really like Zootopia because of um– (Audience laughs - can’t hear the rest of her answer) An equally savvy answer would be that we’re very partial to Winnie the Pooh. Pooh was my very first boyfriend and Josh, here, read the entire first Winnie the Pooh book to my belly when I was pregnant with my eldest and that was the first movie that Oliver saw. Then we accidentally bought Sterling Holloway’s house and he was Winnie the Pooh (note: he was the voice actor), so that’s kind of a crazy story. So yeah, Pooh’s got a whole thing. There’s a whole three-line of Pooh in our lives.
Josh: Or we stalk him. (Audience laughs)
Moderator: How about you, David?
David: I am fond of Maleficent and the whole Sleeping Beauty thing.
Eddy: I’m gonna go with Alice in Wonderland and just because I like it. (Audience laughs)
3. Back to the musical, even though the songs are new and original, do you take inspiration from the Disney characters the actors portray?
Adam: It’s more like we’ve taken inspiration from the way our actors have realized these characters on the show. You know, we use the disney movies and animated films as a jumping off point, but every one of them has made it their own. So when we started this process, they sat down with Alan and Michael and we really all tried to work together to tailor everything specifically to who these characters are on our show and those guys did an amazing job with the songs and these guys did alright singing them. (Audience laughs)
Eddy: The idea was each episode has the tone of the character so a Snow/Charming episode is different than a Rumple. I think Alan and Michael really captured kind of the character, they were fans of the show, and then the tone & inspiration for each one.
David: Also it was about returning to a S1 feel for all of these characters, which speaks to how we were introduced to them and what the actors brought to those characters, kinda going to really the heart of when we met them and putting it into song.
Moderator: Awesome. So deep. (Audience laughs)
4. For Josh & Ginny, if you could be any other character besides the one you play currently on OUAT, who would it be?
Josh: I’ve always said Rumplestiltskin for sure. Just because Bobby, the actor, gets to play such a huge range. I just think that would be a whole lot of fun.
Ginny: I would be Henry because I wouldn’t have to wear a wig and that would be the closest I would ever get to playing Harry Potter. (Audience laughs)
5. What’s your Disney favorite ride or attraction?
Ginny: Haunted Mansion.
Eddy: Pirates! Haunted Mansion too, it’s close.
Josh: I also like Indiana Jones.
Adam: It’s a tie between Pirates and Star Tours. There’s like 94 possibilities.
(Someone said Space Mountain - can’t tell who. Maybe David.)
Eddy: The Buena Vista Commissary. There’s a salad bar like right down Dopey Ave. (Audience laughs)
6. Which characters were the most exciting to create a song for?
Josh: (clears throat loudly) Answer honestly!
Alan & Michael (note: I can’t tell which is which): I mean, Zelena was… Yeah.
Josh: Alright, nice to see you (note: I assume he gets up halfway as a joke)
A&M: We had to test you there.
Eddy: It’s hard to say who.. It’s like your favorite child.
Ginny: Us obviously. (Audience laughs)
Eddy: I think, for us, it was really just exciting to do as many as we could. You know, I think we weren’t sure how many songs we could take on, we weren’t sure we could do any of it and, you know, literally these guys wrote 7 original songs and they started meeting in December so… if you have a birthday or anniversary coming up, Alan & Michael~
my aesthetic is people who portray dark, stoic and broody characters on screen and when you see them off screen in interviews and whatnot they’re like the personification of sunshine, cupcakes and kittens

A/N: This is the first part of my submission for the talented and wonderful @tatortot2701 ‘s AU writing challenge. (Tay, please disregard until it’s completed!) Y'all wanted angst, well…I took a fluffy prompt and darkened it. I tried not to but this story wouldn’t leave me alone. I’m not sure how many parts it will have.
My prompt was 28 .“____ is not a real word.” “Yes it is!”
