‘Once Upon a Time’ Bosses Open Up About Aladdin Story, Jasmine’s “Agenda”

JULY 29, 2016 10:00am PT by Alyse Whitney

“Every time the audience starts to figure out the show, you want to change it,” co-creator Eddy Kitsis tells THR.

When Once Upon a Time goes on a magic carpet ride in season six, it won’t look exactly like the Aladdin that Disney fans know and love.

“[Jasmine] is a strong character with an agenda all her own,” co-showrunner Adam Horowitz tells The Hollywood Reporter, but he notes that how the character will be introduced will be a “surprise.”

Horowitz and fellow co-creator Eddy Kitsis could not say if the show’s newest DIsney characters — Aladdin (Deniz Akdeniz), Jasmine (Karen David) and Jafar (Oded Fehr) — would stick around for the whole season, but they did reveal that they will intertwine into the “Savior mythology.” As seen in the season six Comic-Con footage, Aladdin is also a Savior, which will be explored in “Savior mythology” with Emma (Jennifer Morrison) and company.

Below, Horowitz and Kitsis discuss how a band of new characters from the Land of Untold Stories will be used to help develop the core characters’ storylines, how the Evil Queen (Lana Parrilla) is the most “formidable” villain yet, and the changes to expect as the show shifts from half-season arcs to one full season featuring Dr. Jekyll (Hank Harris) and Mr. Hyde (Sam Witwer).

Did you have any clearance issues with Disney to get the Aladdin characters?

Kitsis: No, Disney has been really supportive since season one. The greatest thing about Disney has not only been their support but they oftentimes will let us use their characters or talk to the people behind them. We’ve had the Frozen characters, we’ve had Ariel, and we waited until the right moment to do the Aladdin story.

Horowitz: The Disney feature animation side has been really generous with us and they look at the show, I think, the way we present it. We like to call it the Disney cul-de-sac. These characters can come in here, go for a spin, we play with them a little bit, and then we set them back and try not to damage them.

Did you have big plans for Aladdin and company from the beginning of the show or did you imagine something with the Jekyll and Hyde storyline as you were brainstorming the season?

Horowitz: It’s been a long time coming. We talked about using these characters pretty much since the first season, internally. It was always about the right time and when it would fit into the storytelling the way we wanted to. With the Land of Untold Stories and with Jekyll and Hyde I think you’ll see that the Aladdin, Jasmine, Jafar story folds in neatly.

Aladdin had many other beloved characters, including the late Robin Williams’ Genie and Abu. Any plans to bring them in?

Horowitz: There certainly are nods to the film that we all love so much, that we’re peppering in throughout. We’re, right now, focusing on those three.

Kitsis: Obviously, I don’t think we would touch the genie. I would like to see a monkey but I can’t promise anything. I think, whereas some stories, like Frozen, we were very faithful to Frozen, I think you will see Aladdin will have its own Once twist.

Would you say it’s a darker twist than the Aladdin we know? Jafar’s a pretty dark character — he’s one of the most evil villains of the Disney universe.

Horowitz: I think it’s the Once Upon a Time tone, which is to say that dark things happen but it never gets bleak, which is the difference we always draw. Despite how dark and scary things can get, there’s always a hopefulness at the core of the storytelling. I think with the Aladdin story and how it meshes with the Once Upon a Time story, the same will hold true. We’re not going to pull any punches with Jafar in terms of being a really dark and evil character.

Does Aladdin and Jasmine’s love story remain true? Is that part of the arc, or is it more about just putting those characters into Storybrooke?

Kitsis: I would say that it’s a little of everything. I think that their love story is such a central part of their story that we want to honor that. I think that we’re going to open up a new avenue for Aladdin and Jasmine in our little cul-de-sac.

Q) It seems like we have heard a lot of the other characters’ backstories and their family and what not. Fitz and Simmons still seem to be a mystery. Will we ever hear more about where they came from?

Jed: We weren’t going to do that, but now we will.

Maurissa: We had an episode where they went back to the academy and there were a few scenes from that episode that unfortunately had to be cut just for time. There were many conversations within those scenes that did reveal more information about their personal lives. But we’ll get there. Now that they are in a fully committed relationship there will be a lot of pillow talk.

Jed: Also, they have been through a lot of obstacles to get together. Now that they are together, the obstacles that usually come when you find someone is the people that come with them and the families. Everything will change. So, we will get into some of that. Yes.
