Once Upon a Time is welcoming another Disney princess to the fold and fans now have a first look at her!
It was announced at Comic-Con this weekend that Merida, the feisty Scottish princess from Brave, will be making her way into the OUaT storyline in the upcoming season, which will focus on turning Dark One Emma back into Savior Emma. We learned during the con that “we’ll meet Brave’s feisty princess, Merida, next season (and no, she’s not Rumple’s mother, for you theorists). Emma will introduce us to her and she’ll have a connection to Camelot.”
Well now we have a first glimpse of the princess in real-life form and once again, casting is spot on. Actress Amy Manson, whom you may recognize from the BBC version of Being Human, has landed the role. Although she isn’t a natural redhead, her facial expressions in the brief teaser show that she’s the right girl for the job.
Watch Merida show off her badass archery skills below:
We don’t have many more details about how she’ll fit into the plot at the moment, but we’d love to hear some of your awesome fan theories in the comments below.
Once Upon a Time returns Sunday September 27th on ABC!
