'Once Upon A Time In Wonderland' Premiere: 7 Reasons To Watch ABC's Whimsical Spinoff
Huffington Post - over 3 years
ABC's "Once Upon a Time in Wonderland" premieres tonight (Thurs., Oct. 10 at 8 p.m. ET), and if you're a fan of the whimsical world that "Lost" alums Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz have created on the original "Once Upon a Time," you'll find its spinoff thoroughly enchanting. And if you're not a fan of the mothership, "Wonderland" still has the capacity to pull you down the rabbit hole. Unlike the sprawling, flashback-laden, dimension-hopping shenanigans that may make "OUAT" (now in its third season) a little daunting to newcomers, "Wonderland" aims to be a more self-contained effort -- Kitsis admitted that they were inspired by FX's "American Horror Story" in that each season has a beginning, middle and end. Horowitz explained that with the show's initial 13-episode order, they aim to tell a "closed-ended story within this season. Should it work, we’ll hopefully move on to many more adventures with Alice [Sophie Lowe] and all these great characters." The producers are adamant tha ...

Once Upon a Time in Wonderland: Big Cat Keith David Lends His Voice
Boom Tron - over 3 years
At the current rate it’s going, Once Upon a Time in Wonderland will have more voice actors than physical actors in its cast! ABC’s Once Upon a Time spinoff has added yet another big voice actor its roster of people who shall be heard but not seen. Already we have John Lithgow voicing the White Rabbit and Roger Daltrey reprising his part as the hookah-smoking caterpillar. Now we open our arms to a man with a particularly well-known voice: Mr. Keith David. He’s done voice over work for Ken Burns, as well as several animated features (The Princess and the Frog) and video games (Mass Effect series). Now David will be voicing one of Wonderland’s most famous characters: the Cheshire Cat, says TVLine. The goofy grinned feline will make its first appearance in the spinoff’s premiere, which will air Thursday, Oct. 10. While David would hardly be the first name I’d think of when considering voice actors for the Cheshire Cat, I’m excited to hear what his interpretation of the character will s ...

Interview with Once Upon A Time in Wonderland Cast & Executive Producer
CNN - over 3 years
I got the opportunity to interview the stars and Executive Producer earlier this year at SDCC where I got to ask a few questions about the book, series, idea behind the spinoff and how it's independent from Once Upon a Time.  In case your unfamiliar with the new series.  It takes up where the iconic books leave off and answers the question of 'What Happened to Alice' after she returns to England???  This is an interesting mashup with a blending of Aladdin and Alice in Wonderland that is in the spirit of Once Upon A Time because we all love fair tales and ABC has a huge roster of untold stories!  It is being filmed in Vancouver and will be a 'mini series' where the entire story will be complete in one season.    About Once Upon A Time in Wonderland:   In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice (Sophie Lowe) tells a tale of a strange new land that exists on the other side of a rabbit hole.
