Fans are excited that Elsa and other characters from the movie "Frozen" are coming to Storybrooke. The latest in "Once Upon a Time" season 4 news states that there are going to be flashbacks and unique connections to other worlds. Carter Matt posted the information on Aug. 5.

"OUAT" showrunners Adam Horowitz and Edward Kitsis have said in the past that they feel honored that Disney is allowing them to use the characters from "Frozen." Because of that, they wanted to be careful of how they portrayed them. Instead of altering the characters in the movie, they are going around that time period. There will be flashbacks to the time before the film and fans will learn more about their parents. In present day Storybrooke, Elsa and Anna will be grown women.

Entertainment Weekly revealed that viewers will discover how Elsa became Rumple's prisoner. This could be the reason why she has come to Storybrooke, to get revenge on Rumple. Fans will also find out how Anna and Kristoff fit in the fold. International Business Times wrote that in "Once Upon a Time" season 4, Team Storybrooke will battle Elsa, the Ice Queen from Arendelle.

It was previously reported that Elsa will have connections with at least one Storybrooke resident. Besides Rumple, there are fans debating on who else is connected to the Ice Queen. Besides this tidbit, Horwitz mentioned that there will be surprising connections between worlds. He said,

“What happened to her to get her into that urn and what was going on in her life at that point is what’s going to be revealed and what’s going to be pushing the story forward … Hopefully you’ll find that there will be some cool surprising connections between Arendelle and our world.”

"Once Upon a Time" fans are definitely excited about the "Frozen" theme this season. Remember to set the DVR because "OUAT" will return to ABC on Sept. 28.
