'Once Upon A Time' Season 5 Gets Fans Excited On Instagram & You're Missing Out If You're Not Following
It's been a long, tiresome hiatus, but Once Upon A Time Season 5 is upon us, and it's officially time to get excited. In just a little over three weeks, we've got Dark Swan, Brave's Merida, Camelot, Merlin, King Arthur... I mean, need I go on? It seems ABC wants us to get hype for new episodes, as well, and they've invited Snow White herself — that's Ginnifer Goodwin, for those who aren't familiar — to take over the show's official Instagram account for a whole month to share some on set snaps and give fans the inside scoop on what really goes on behind-the-scenes. Newsflash: If you're not already following Once Upon A Time's official Instagram account, now's the time to start, because you're seriously missing out.
So far, we've been lucky enough to see seven shots from Goodwin, even though we're only three days into September. That's pretty promising for a Once obsessive like me, who will basically take anything I can get when it comes to this show. From a look at Dark Swan's intellectual side to a portrait of Hook in a rather compromising position, this takeover is probably one of the best I've seen from TV casts, and I'm all about it.
If you haven't been paying attention, here's what you missed so far.
A Selfie Of A Selfie
If there's anything better than a selfie, it's got to be a photo of a selfie you took before, right? I don't know where this photo is hanging or who printed it out, but seeing Snow White's scandalized face is always a welcome sight.
Hot Prince Charming
I don't know what Charming/Josh Dallas is holding in his hand, but I do know that the fact that he and Goodwin are married in real life is kind of the cutest thing I've ever heard and I think they're absolutely adorable.
Trying To Be Supportive Parents
Goodwin calls Dark Swan Emma's "goth phase", which is hilarious. In reality, this is a shot of Jennifer Morrison reading and listening to some tunes between shooting scenes, and it's a great look at what on-set life is really like for these actors.
A Different Landscape
The landscape definitely looks different this season, especially since we know at least part of it will be taking place in Camelot, which is part of the Enchanted Forest, but still totally different to what we're used to.
Hook With Pearls
I really don't know why this is happening, but I don't really need to. What I know is that this is hilarious and I haven't laughed as hard as I did when I saw this in a really long time. Colin O'Donoghue has always seemed like a load of fun, and this picture just proves it.
Merida In Poster Form
Man, they're really pushing the Merida thing, eh? It seems like the Brave heroine is rather popular these days, but I guess that makes sense — she's tons of fun. I can't wait to see what they do with her on the show!
Regina & Belle Bonding Time
Lana Parrilla and Emilie de Ravin are sharing some sort of delicious ice cream concoction and now I'm hungry (but when am I not?). It's lovely to see how friendly the cast and crew are behind the scenes — it just makes their on screen work that much more impressive, I think.
Luckily, Goodwin's Instagram takeover has only just started, so you still have time to get in on the action. What are you waiting for?
