Did you notice that Rumpelstiltskin has stayed the same age? Let’s discuss that and more in this Once Upon a Time trivia piece. It’s not IMDB that knows it all!
Why are the Once Upon a Time opening credits so short?
Jane Espenson has said that it’s because “long opening credits lose viewers. You can see people tuning out, I’m told.”
How old is Rumpelstiltskin?
While we don’t know his exact age, it’s important to note that Rumpelstiltskin doesn’t age.
How do the showrunners and writers decide which fairytale character to talk about?
It’s based on interest for the character, as well as a need to drive the story for the big picture.
How much of the plot is created in advance?
By the middle of season 1 broad strokes of season 2 had already been painted.
Why is Mary Margaret’s hair shorter than Snow White’s?
Because Ginnifer Goodwin had a short, pixie haircut, they kept it. To distinguish her in the fairytale world she wears a long wig.
What about Fairy Dust?
Fairy Dust can be good or bad. Snow White had it to use as a weapon against the evil queen.
