"Once Upon A Time In Wonderland" is getting ready to arrive on ABC. On Tuesday, Aug. 20, Spoiler TV shared new photos from the set of the series featuring Sophie Lowe and Peter Gadiot. The two star as Alice and Cyrus on the series, and the set photos show the pair in a fight scene. Check out the photos at the link. Previously released photos of the cast at their TCA panel can be seen at this link, and the previously released photos from the premiere can be seen here.
This series will give fans a new take on Alice, but the series will also bring other story book characters to life. A new beast is coming during episode three of the series. TV Line did share a bit about the new character, and as usual with things in fairy tale land, there is a twist coming. Fans have learned that from the world of "Once Upon A Time." The spin-off will be no different. The site revealed the following:
"The Once spin-off will, in its third episode, sic no less than Beowulf‘s Grendel on Alice and The Knave. Envisioned (via an actor in prosthetics) as a 'large, warted, ogre-like beast,' the cannibalistic Grendel will pose a mortal threat [to its dinner] the genie-seeking pair — though in typical Once fashion, there is more to this beast than meets the eye."
Grendel will be featured as a more modern take of the character on the series. Fans should expect a lot of twists and turns once this series premieres. As for Naveen Andrews, his Jafar will be a part of the regular cast for the series this season.
"Once Upon A Time In Wonderland" will arrive on Oct. 10 on ABC.
