Once Upon a Time bosses announce new Disney series Epic packed full of fairy-tale characters

More fairytales

ONCE Upon A Time bosses will return to the world of fantasy with a new TV series titled Epic.

Network ABC has put the new series into development, with the show thought to be another romantic anthology series set in Disney's fairytale world.

As well as focusing on the princesses, princes, fairies, villains and woodland creatures we know and love, the series is also planning to "create a whole new batch of characters as it explores love in all its forms".

The series will be set in an Enchanted forest; the forest made an appearance in Once Upon a Time, as it was a realm within Fairy Tale Land.

Once Upon a Time writer Brigette Hales and series' creators Eddy Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are behind the new show.

The show ran for eight years, and concluded in 2018. It was set in the fictitious town of Storybrooke, Maine, with the character of Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) as the lead and Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White.

Kitsis and Horowitz had previously admitted they were unsure if they would return to the world of Once, but that they were "up for someone else doing it and we look forward to seeing what that would be".

"We feel like we told our story that has been very near and dear to our hearts for a very long time," Horowitz added, speaking to The Hollywood Reporter.

"This was an idea we had more than 15 years ago and we feel very happy with what we did and how we did it and, should the show continue on in some form down the line, I think we'd be as big fans."
