When Disney fans heard that characters from Frozen would be joining ABC’s Once Upon a Time series, everyone wondered who would be playing the ice sorceress, Elsa. Now, we know! Actress Georgina Haig, who is best known for her work on FOX’s sci-fi show Fringe, will be donning the frosty crown as your favorite Queen of Arendelle.

That’s not all that was announced, either! Princess Anna, Elsa’s loving sister, will be played by actress Elizabeth Lail, and mountain man Kristoff Bjorgman will be portrayed by actor Scott Michael Foster.

The storyline in Once Upon a Time that introduces the Frozen characters will take place after the events of the movie, as Elsa continues struggling to get a handle on her ice magic. Also, Producer Eddy Kitsis revealed that the theme of Elsa being a misunderstood person will be focused on well.

Expectations are high, and the show creators admit they’re being very careful with how they use the Frozen characters. After all, ever since the flick hit theaters last November, it’s gone on to become the highest-grossing animated film of all time, and the 5th highest-grossing movie ever! So, this fall, look forward to a wintry spell being cast upon Once Upon a Time, when season 4 premieres on ABC.
