Once Upon a Time Creator Courts Jorge Garcia, Teases Trio of Disney Icons

by at .

Mulan and Sleeping Beauty are already on board.

But fans should expect even more classic Disney characters to debut on Once Upon a Time Season 2, teases no less of an authority on the matter than co-creator Edward Kitsis.

Speaking to William Keck of TV Guide Magazine, Kitsis said he plans to cast Ariel (from The Little Mermaid), along with Alladin and Jafar, at some point on his hit show's second season.

Moreover, Kitsis says he hopes to find a role for former Lost star Jorge Garcia.

The producer won't reveal which character he has in mind, but Garcia would join Alan Dale and newly-promoted Emilie de Ravin on Once Upon a Time. Also, let's face it: Naveen Andrews would make the ideal Jafar, wouldn't he?

    So long as they use true ARABS to play Aladdin, Jafar, and Jasmine. They must find Arab actors.
