Dreams Do Come True with ABC’s New Hit Once Upon a Time

Once Upon a Time delves deeper into the fairytales we all know and love. Many of these are Disney fairytales. It takes place in an enchanted town called Storybrooke. The residents of Storybrooke are believed to be characters trapped by a dark curse cast by the Evil Queen. Only the long lost child of Snow White and Prince Charming, Emma Swan, can break the curse that is keeping the town’s residents in the dark. Fortunately, Emma’s son Henry, who was given up for adoption, finds her and convinces her to return to Storybrooke.

The character of Emma Swan is played by Jennifer Morrison, who grew up in Illinois with parents that taught at her high school. Although the show Once Upon a Time is new, Morrison has a long list of acting credits. Perhaps the most notable of these was FOX’s drama House, where Jennifer played the character of Dr. Allison Cameron. In addition to acting, Morrison was also a child model. In fact, she graced the cover of Sports Illustrated for Kids with none other than Michael Jordan. Fans of Jennifer Morrison can look for her in the upcoming movies Warrior and 5 for the Cure.

According to Once Upon a Time’s co-creator and executive producer Edward Kitsis, the show is mainly about hope. The belief that things are bound to get better is what keeps people going during hard times. I believe this is one of the main reasons that Once Upon a Time is growing in popularity. Another reason is the show’s family friendliness. There are not many forms of entertainment left that capture the attention of both children and parents at the same time. Anyone who has found themselves swept away by fairytales in a book will also find themselves engrossed in the Once Upon a Time fairytale that unfolds each week on their television screens.
