We just finished watching the Once Upon a Time season 5 premiere and we can tell you right now it’s an epic comeback for some of our favorite Disney characters.

In the Once Upon a Time season 5 premiere not only do you get to see Dark Emma but you also get to see Arthurian legend come to life once again in Camelot. We can’t say much, but we do have these five teasers for you to get you excited about the episode:

– The dagger’s history will blow your mind. We knew that we were going to find out the history of the dark one, but we didn’t think it’d start this soon! You’ll be wanting more after the first few minutes reveal the dagger’s biggest mystery.

– More enchanted objects. Unrelated to the dagger, a new and very familiar (and famous) enchanted object gets introduced this Sunday. We won’t tell you what movie it’s from but its by far one of the most iconic objects in Disney film history. Hint: It’s not the sword in the stone, nor is it related to Camelot.

– There is no major curse this year. The past few seasons have revolved around a gigantic curse that takes place on the town or a set of characters, and we’re happy to tell you that this year breaks tradition. Instead we find ourselves with a very interesting prophecy that leads us to unexpected places.

– The little voices get heard! During the last five years we’ve been introduced to several recurring characters who had tiny one-off episodes and not much else. This season brings some of those characters back to the forefront of the battle and this premiere starts it all. Don’t expect the Huntsman any time soon but it might be time to whistle hi ho.

– This is Once Upon a Time‘s biggest adventure. Not only are our favorite characters going to Camelot to find Merlin but they’re doing it together as a family. This is all one big family effort to save Emma and none of the series regulars are left out! If the premiere is anything to go by we expect some crazy awesome things to happen with these characters this season.

Exciting, right?! And that’s not all. In addition to our five teasers we’ve gone ahead and listed some of the more memorable quotes that you can look forward to when Once Upon a Time returns. We won’t say who said ’em though, you’ll have to watch to find out!

– “We need someone wicked.”
– “At least you’re not a bear.”
– “Please go away you’re ruining my chi.”
– “…you like having a hook, maybe you’ll like another.”

That’s about all we can say about “The Dark Swan,” but we hope you’re just as excited to watch it as we were.

TVLINE | Jen [Morrison] and Lana [Parrilla] talked at Comic-Con about how their roles have sort of been “flipped” here. How does the role of quasi-savior fit on Regina at first?
HOROWITZ | It’s not necessarily that Regina is the Savior, but she has been put into a position now where she owes Emma [for saving her from the Darkness]. She’s become a more heroic character over the years but now she has her biggest challenge yet, and it’s an awkward fit for her because she’s not used to having to lead or take charge. And she’s got to work with people like Hook, who has a very strong interest in saving Emma as well. And both Hook and Regina are strong personalities.

TVLINE | Will Hook be more active in this arc? Perhaps his most active since Neverland?
He is hell-bent on saving Emma, so he is going to be quite active over the first 10 episodes.
HOROWITZ | Emma facing the darkness as the new Dark One forces Hook to confront the darkness in himself that he’s spent hundreds of years coming to terms with. It gives him unique insight into Emma’s predicament and pushes their relationship to what we think are exciting but also potentially dangerous places. It’s never been easy for these two, and things are only going to get dicier. That said, Hook has proclaimed his love for Emma — and he’s not going to give up on her easily.

The special also features interviews with executive producers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz with exclusive insights about the season fans won’t want to miss. “Dark Swan Rises: A Once Upon a Time Fan Celebration” airs SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 27 (7:00-8:00p.m., ET) on the ABC Television Network.

Gilmore as Henry Mills, Sean Maguire as Robin Hood, Rebecca Mader as the Wicked Witch/Zelena and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

Could Emma being dark entice Hook (Colin O’Donoghue) to go dark as well?
Well, there certainly is a dark part to Hook that is engaged by the Darkness that is taking over Emma, and it is something that he certainly can relate to in a way that many others can’t.

KITSIS: But I would say that right now his main focus is on saving the woman he loves. The one thing about Hook is he spent 300 years trying to kill Rumple, so he doesn’t give up so easy, he doesn’t change himself that easy.

Once Upon enters a whole new world of brave warriors. The clash of good versus evil has never been this intense! Once Upon a Time Season 5 premieres Sunday September 27th on ABC.

Naomi / September 5th, 2015

Welcome to Storybrooke, Maine, a small town that probably won’t show up on your GPS, but it’s a magical place to visit. Reality and myth merged after Emma broke Regina’s curse, which had deprived the fairy tale characters of their memories and trapped them in our modern world. When they finally regained their identities, our heroes were dismayed to discover that they weren’t transported back to Fairy Tale Land. To make matters worse, Rumplestiltskin – aka Mr. Gold – decided to escalate his power struggle with Regina by introducing magic into the town. But this is our world, and magic always has a tendency to yield unfathomable consequences.

“Once Upon a Time” returns to the ABC Television Network for its fifth season and master storytellers Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz (“Lost,” “Tron: Legacy”) invite everyone to join Emma Swan, Snow White, Prince Charming, The Evil Queen, Hook and all the other resident fairytale characters as they cope with Emma’s new role as The Dark One and begin the search for Merlin. This is a journey that will take our heroes from the Enchanted Forest to Camelot and along the way bring many surprises, including encounters with a brave and headstrong Scottish princess named Merida.

As the season continues, new fairy tale characters will be revealed and old acquaintances will be revisited. Not everyone can be trusted but one thing remains true — you never give up on the people you love…

“Once Upon a Time” stars Ginnifer Goodwin as Snow White/Mary Margaret, Jennifer Morrison as Emma Swan, Lana Parrilla as the Evil Queen/Regina, Josh Dallas as Prince Charming/David, Emilie de Ravin as Belle, Colin O’Donoghue as Hook, Jared S. Gilmore as Henry Mills, Sean Maguire as Robin Hood, Rebecca Mader as Wicked Witch/Zelena and Robert Carlyle as Rumplestiltskin/Mr. Gold.

Edward Kitsis and Adam Horowitz are creators and executive producers. Steve Pearlman, David H. Goodman and Andrew Chambliss are also executive producers. The series is produced by ABC Studios.

Is the incredible resemblance between Once Upon a Time’s King Arthur (to be played by Liam Garrigan) and a certain one-handed pirate just happy coincidence? –Linda
With a chuckle, Eddy Kitsis affirms, “It is just a happy coincidence!”
