ONCE UPON A TIME
Season 4 of Once Upon A Time introduces Frozen’s Anna and Elsa (portrayed by Australia’s Georgina Haig). Elsa, the Ice Queen from Arendelle, finds herself in Storybrooke and, fearful of the intentions of its residents, creates a powerful snow monster for protection. Meanwhile, in Arendelle of the past, as Anna's wedding to Kristoff nears, she discovers that her parents - who died on-ship during a violent storm - were heading to a mysterious destination in a quest that may have held the secret to containing Elsa's out of control ice powers. And against Elsa's wishes, Anna wants to finish their journey to find out what they were looking for.
