More and more clues are dropping about the upcoming seventh season of Once Upon A Time – and the latest is a doozy. Entertainment Weekly released a first look at the show’s poster, which features Cinderella (Dania Ramirez) riding through the night on Henry’s (Andrew J. West) motorcycle. This is finally official photographic evidence that Ramirez will be playing Henry’s wife – and mother to his daughter Lucy.
We still don’t know a ton about Ramirez’s Cinderella, but we do know that she will have some ~fire~ sparks with West.
We’ll get to see Cinderella and Henry together this season in Hyperion Heights, a “densely populated” city in Seattle – with an unexpected twist. Instead of an exclusively magic community like Storybrooke, Hyperion Heights will house both magical and non-magical folks alike.
“[There’ll] be some element for the audience of who is who, and will they or won’t they figure out who they are?” The show’s co-creator, Edward Kitsis, explained to The Hollywood Reporter.
In addition to Ramirez, there will be a whole slew of new faces added to the show, including Gabrielle Anwar as Cinderella’s evil stepmother, Adelaide Kane as Cinderella’s evil stepsister, and Rose Reynolds as the new Alice (from Alice in Wonderland).
Cinderella’s evil stepmother, incidentally, is the reason Hyperion Heights was cursed in the first place. And she’s not holding back any punches. According to executive producer David H. Goodman, she’s learned a lot from Regina’s past mistakes, so that she can be the most “effective” villain possible.
Yup, already super nervous about this.
Once Upon A Time returns to ABC on October 6th and in the meantime, we’re already pretttttty ready to hop onto Henry’s motorcycle. Glass slippers and all.
