Queen Elsa from Disney's "Frozen" will be joined in Storybrooke by her younger sister and the lovable Kristoff. Unfortunately for "Frozen" fans, "Once Upon A Time" showrunners have not commented on the possibility of Olaf's arrival from Arrendelle. Disney

“Once Upon A Time” fans should prepare themselves because some new casting news reveals that Storybrooke may be enduring a big chill with even more “Frozen” characters in Season 4! Queen Elsa of Disney’s most recent box office hit “Frozen” was introduced in the finale episode of Season 3, and while fans didn’t get to see Arendelle’s reigning ice queen’s face, they were treated to a glimpse of her iconic blue dress, and flowing blonde white hair. Elsa was locked away in Rumplestiltskin's vault, until that is Marian was brought from the past to the present by Emma, allegedly altering Zelena’s portal and dislodging Elsa’a confining urn. Once the urn had fallen on the ground, it opened, allowing the blue liquid to fill Zelena’s portal and unleash Elsa and all her icy abilities. Many fans of “Once Upon A Time” believe that Elsa will become the new villain in Season 4, overtaking Regina as the freeze queen of Storybrooke.

Despite Elsa’s appearance in the Season 3 finale, the actress was merely a stand in. Fans will most likely meet the real Elsa in the Season 4 premiere episode, so it makes sense that ABC has already begun a casting search. In the animated film, “Frozen,” Elsa was voiced by Broadway star Idina Menzel, and despite fans wishes we can’t imagine the vocalist finding her way to the small screen, and it seems like ABC agrees with this casting breakdown for the highly anticipated character. TV Line reported that “Once Upon A Time” show runners have described Elsa as, “The Queen of Arendelle, this late-20s/early-30s beauty long struggled to control her “chilling” powers and even unleashed upon her town an eternal winter during her coronation. Ultimately, she realized that the key to controlling her powers is love -- namely, her bond with sister Anna -- and now she is aware of the threat she poses if she were to lose control of her magic again (in which instance Vancouver weather could rival Winnipeg’s!)”

While Elsa is set to appear in approximately 9 episodes of Season 4, she is not the only “Frozen” character set to make an appearance in Storybrooke. Elsa’s younger sister Anna will also be joining her. Anna is described as a “fun-loving, fearless optimist who often gets herself into situations where she is in over her head, yet is able to triumph due to her resourcefulness and can-do spirit. She values her relationship with her sister above all else.” In addition to Anna, who we believe will become fast friends with Snow White, Kristoff will be leaving behind the ice business and following Anna and her sister Elsa. Kristoff is both “handsome, and hearty.” He possesses a “gruff demeanor that can hide his deep love for Anna and her sister Elsa. When we first meet Kristoff on “Once Upon A Time,” he is adjusting to life at the castle -- including sleeping indoors for the first time in his life.”

From the character description alone, it seems like Kristoff and Anna will be in Arrendelle when viewers first see them in Season 4. Showrunners Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz revealed that while Elsa will be featured in 9 episodes, Anna and Kristoff would be in less. So perhaps the new loved up pair make the journey to Storybrooke after Elsa has already established herself as Ice Queen. Anna was the only person that helped her sister control her icy power in “Frozen” so it would make sense that Anna came to her aide again.

Last but certainly not least, Olaf will not be in “Once Upon A Time” in general. Despite the series’ whimsical plot, TV Line reports that when asked about the possibility of a talking snowman in Storybrooke, the showrunners laughed and offered a “No comment,” mostly likely indicating that a CGI produced Olaf will not make the cut.
