For the last seven years, ABC’s “Once Upon a Time” has been a staple at San Diego Comic-Con. This year, the cast and crew will assemble on Saturday, July 22 in Ballroom 20. After six seasons, the residents of the enchanted forest enter Season 7 facing their greatest challenge yet as the Evil Queen, Captain Hook and Rumplestiltskin join forces with a grown-up Henry Mills and his daughter Lucy on an epic quest to bring hope to their world and ours.
Along the way, new fairy tale characters and old search for true love, find adventure and take sides in the ongoing struggle of good against evil as classic tales are once again twisted and reimagined. Fans of the show will be able to join co-creators and executive producers Edward Kitsis (“Lost”) and Adam Horowitz (“Lost”), along with executive producer David H. Goodman (“Without a Trace”) and the cast as they discuss what’s in store for our returning favorites as well as the new additions to the “Once Upon a Time” universe with moderator Yvette Nicole Brown (“The Mayor”).
Additionally, ABC will host a jaw-dropping 360-degree fan experience created exclusively for Comic-Con featuring hologram technology. Guests visiting the ABC Booth will be fully immersed into the worlds of “Once Upon a Time” and the new drama series “The Crossing,” where they will have the opportunity to interact with dynamic characters and environments like never before. On Saturday, July 22, one hundred lucky fans will have the chance to meet some of their favorite ”Once Upon a Time” cast members at an autograph session.
