ABC continues its commitment to world-class storytelling and new creative voices with the announcement of its 2014-15 slate of programming, including the addition of 12 new series. Paul Lee, president, ABC Entertainment Group, will unveil the network’s new lineup to the advertising and media communities this afternoon at Lincoln Center’s Avery Fisher Hall.
ABC invites new and devoted ‘Once Upon a Time’ viewers to take another look at this popular fantasy series in the new special, ‘Once Upon a Time: Wicked is Coming,’ which will explore the show in a way that will bring new viewers up to date — but which current viewers will also find illuminating — in anticipation of the exciting midseason return. The special will take a look at the role that family plays in the show, our heroes’ journey from breaking the curse to the ramifications of magic in our world, travelling to Neverland to save Henry from an evil Peter Pan, and their upcoming battle with The Wicked Witch of the West. Narrated by Dan Stevens (‘Downton Abbey’), the special features interviews with the cast, and executive producers Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz help tell the story of ‘Once Upon a Time: Wicked is Coming,’ airing Sunday, March 9 at 7:00 pm ET/PT on the ABC Television Network.
The Oriental Land Company (OLC), owner and operator of the Tokyo Disney Resort, today announced that it will be bringing its night-time entertainment show, ‘Once Upon A Time,’ to the Tokyo Disneyland theme park beginning May 29, 2014.
‘Once Upon A Time’ is a fifteen minute show that uses the same high-resolution projection mapping technique that is currently in use at other Disney theme parks around the world including Walt Disney World’s Magic Kingdom, Disneyland and Disneyland Paris. Like its Magic Kingdom and Disneyland Paris counterparts, the show will be projected onto the park’s icon, Cinderella Castle.
Disney D23 Presents the Treasures of the Walt Disney Studio Archives is easily one of the most popular attractions during the biennial D23 Expo, arguably second only to the star-studded arena presentations, and this year is sure to be no different.
Although smaller than last year’s presentation, by focusing on timeless properties such as Disney’s oft-foray into the world of L. Frank Baum’s Oz and the 1964 classic Mary Poppins, the archives team has managed to produce a solid sampling of fascinating objects that span decades film and parks history.
