No, we’re not talking about Tiny the Giant stealing the show. Brace yourself, Oncers — the premiere is super-sized to two hours! Unfortunately, it’s not two hours of new footage, but the one-hour recap special, Journey to Neverland, promises to not only “explore the new series in a way that will bring new viewers up to date, but which current viewers will also find illuminating.”
An official ABC press release explains that the special will take a look at a few big storylines, including Emma and Snow White’s separation from their family in post-curse Fairy Tale Land; Cora’s plan to eliminate Rumple and become “The Dark One”; the big Neal reveal of him being Henry’s father; Greg and Tamara kidnapping Henry; and Neal’s fate when he’s found by Aurora, Mulan, and Prince Phillip! Phew. We’re exhausted just thinking about it.
Additionally, “backstories and secrets” of our favorite characters will be reveal, and it will also offer a glimpse into the trek to Neverland in Season 3.
Though we’ve watched every magical episode of Once Upon a Time multiple times, we’re still excited about the recap special. Two hours of OUAT? How can you go wrong?Will you be watching Journey to Neverland? Sound off below!
