Here it is – the first official trailer for ABC’s upcoming fantasy-drama Once Upon a Time in Wonderland! We already had a little chat about this project, but in case you forgot – Sophie Lowe, Michael Socha, John Lithgow and Peter Gadiot will lead us through the world of Wonderland, where nothing is ever quite as it seems. Take a look!
Created by Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz, the series is based around Lewis Carroll’s fairytale classic but with a different twist from the other adaptations.
In other words, the whole thing takes place in the same universe as Once Upon a Time in present-day Wonderland, with flashbacks to pre-Curse Wonderland.
In case that’s not enough for you, here’s the official synopsis for the show:
“In Victorian England, the young and beautiful Alice tells a tale of a strange new land that exists called Wonderland….one that has her family and doctors convinced she is mad. When the Knave of Hearts and the White Rabbit arrive to save her from a doomed fate, the trio tumble down the rabbit hole for the adventure of a lifetime to rescue Alice’s lost love, Cyrus.”
As you already know, Lowe plays Alice, Socha is on board as the Knave of Hearts, Lithgow is the White Rabbit, while Gadiot stars as Alice’s lost love Cyrus.
The rest of the cast includes Emma Rigby as The Red Queen, Jonny Coyne as Dr. Lydgate, and Barbara Hershey as Cora – Queen of Hearts.
Once Upon a Time in Wonderland will air on ABC at 8:00 on Thursday nights in the 2013–14 television season.
