The more I find out about the Frozen arc, the less excited I am for it. I was fine with Elsa popping up and figured Anna would have to come along as they come as a pair. But…
I think we have to consider that some of these characters won’t be seen that much. Elsa will be seen in about 9, Anna in about 6-8 and Kristoff in no more than 6…..that’s not too bad. I suspect EM won’t be in a ton of episodes..and I doubt this guy will be.
I can see why people are concerned and I’m slightly as well, but not overly so; I think it will be staggered somewhat.
I’m not worried at all about Rumbelle because I think their arc is huge; Adam and Eddy have talked more about them really than anyone else ,at least in terms of detail, and they seem very excited about delving into his story, their story.
As to the twists, I love them too, but I don’t have a problem with them expanding on the story; frankly, while I haven’t seen the movie, the whole arc seems like a lot of fun.
I just choose to be positive about this……..and I’ll worry about if when the time comes.
Holy cow, is this me speaking?
I’m also going to be honest… Expecting every character A/E introduce to be prominent or even partly prominent is, IMO, unfair. Many characters were introduced only to be one-offs…. and to me there’s nothing wrong with that. I have no problem with secondary characters being seen only when needed - that’s why they’re secondary. I love Granny and the Dwarves for instance, but in no way to I crave tons more screen time for them. I love Archie - I could use more of him, but again, I don’t need to see him all the time……. If the actors get jobs in the meantime, that’s fantastic - but every show has recurriing characters. Once probably has more than most because of the FT character population…..and they have GREAT secondary characters.
I tweeted Adam about this, and he replied to me that we had a many newer characters last season…. 3A alone had Pan, Felix, Tink, Ariel, Malcolm. 3A was not flawless, of course, but I don’t think it suffered from too many newbies. Pan, Felix and Malcolm were vital to the story, Tink was lovely and we wll loved Ariel. We had fewer newbies in 3B, but still there was Zelena, Walsh (granted only in 2 episodes), Robin Hood, Rapunzel, Aurora, Mulan.. Now obviously some were barely seen, but we don’t know how much screen some of the characters from Frozen will get. Clearly it’s Elsa, then Anna…… and to a much lesser extent the others
I think the issue is the way they’re introducing them and announcing them all right at the beginning. It feels like they’re all IMPORTANT CHARACTERS. And I hope some of them aren’t. We do have many new characters introduced but like, there was no big deal made about Felix for instance. He was just there. So hopefully these will be some characters who don’t have a ton of screen time.
