Monica: So excited for Rebecca Mader on Once Upon a Time! Can you spill anything on what she’s playing?
She’s one of the best female villians of all time, and not just in recent Disney history. This one even has her own theme music! (x)
With the release of the information of Season 3B getting new bad guy many have thought that it would be Cruella. Why not? She is one of Disney’s Big Bad Villains. And anything and anyone is possible in the A & E OUAT universe.
The only thing stopping me from thinking it is her is the above higlighted pieces in Mader’s interview. Part me is swaying towards the Wicked Witch of the West.
Best female villain of all time. Both villains fit this description. On the AFI 100 Best Villains list the Wicked Witch is #4 and Cruella is #39.
Recent Disney history. 101 Dalmations came out in 1961 so it’s not that recent. Disney’s Great and Powerful Oz, their take on Baums Wizard of Oz that came out in 2013 which is a lot more recent. They created their own story behind how the Wicked Witch came to be. Disney actually had rights to the Oz books in 1937 but were later told that the first book was sold to MGM which produced the famous Wizard of Oz with Judy Garland. Disney actually bought the remaining books that were in public domain but never fully developed projects until the release of the prequel to the Oz story in The Great and Powerful Oz.
Has her own theme music. Both villains have that in common as well. Cruellahas the song that Roger writes about her. The Wicked Witch has one of the most well known theme songs in movie history. You can’t say or hear her name without the music playing in your head.
Another things that have me swaying a tiny bit towards the Wicked Witch is Jefferson in S2E5 The Doctor. He goes to Rumple, while he is teaching Regina (who will be butting heads with the new villain as stated in the article) with the crystal ball he aquired for him. It is possibly the crystal ball of the witch. Rumple asks him about the slippers. Jefferson tells him that they were gone. This heavily suggests that Jefferson was in Oz and they were gone because Dorothy used them to go home. Neal even says that slippers can be used as aportal.
In the pilot one of the pages that we see in Henry’s book has a drawing of flying mokeys.
In Hat Trick one of the doors looks very similar to the green curtain of Oz and have what appear to be their symbol.
There is also the use of poppy dust in Tallahassee against Anton and in Quite the Common Fairy when TInker Bell used it on Regina. The poppies play a part in the Wizard of Oz storyline for putting Dorothy, Toto and The Cowardly Lion to sleep just like in the episodes of OUAT the poppy dust was used in.
I may be completely wrong. I may just be noticing these small scattered hints to Oz throughout the seasons because A & E said we would eventually see Oz and now we have a new villain. To me there is possibility, whether it happens or not.
BLESS YOU, LEXI, FOR PUTTING EVERY SINGLE ONE OF MY THOUGHTS INTO ONE POST!
I AM 10000000000% ON THE WICKED WITCH OF THE WEST TRAIN!
I feel like more hints have been given for Oz over the past few seasons.
Her being the Wicked Witch of the West is more likely, to me. I don’t see OUAT turning the fur-coat loving villain from midcentury London into 3B’s Big Bad.
It may be a combination of characteristics—maybe they’ll do NOD to a Cruella—but I also lean towards the witch.
That said, I definitely haven’t ruled out Mother Gothel.
