In an interview with TV Line, OUAT creator Edward Kitsis said that the 11 episodes set in Neverland will be “like one giant movie” that will have a “big, summer movie feel.” He promised lots of romance, action, adventure, and uplifting moments.

He also said that Robin Hood’s magic will come with both a price and a debt.

When asked if Rumple and Belle were doomed as a couple, she said she would be “surprised if that were the case.”
