Many of the fairy tales and other fictional characters being referenced are older than Disney itself, which has become something of a central clearing house for such things. It could be argued that many of these stories could have their roots in much older kinds of mythology that have been repackaged by Disney at a later time for children's consumption. I'm not a student of fairy tale history, but that would be my guess.
The homogenization and sanitation of Fairy Tales predate Disney. Though I'm fairly certain that names like Belle (Beauty and the Beast), Aurora, Phillip and Malecifent (Sleeping Beauty) originated with Disney. So the versions we see in Once Upon a Time are influenced by the Disney versions.
A couple months ago I was researching Fairy Tale characters on Wikipedia, and it says that the main character in Sleeping Beauty was also named Aurora in the Tchaikovsky/Vsevolozhsky ballet, which was first performed in 1890.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

Finally watched the new episode today. I liked it, there were a lot of very interesting developments in this one. I'm very curious to see where things are going now.

Once Upon a Time has returned

There was a lot to like about the episode. I enjoyed seeing giants and I hope that Cassidy Freeman returns.

I liked seeing how anxious Rumplestiltskin was without magic.

I thought the conversation about David's name was really funny.

Regina showing up at Snow's house seemed a bit...odd.

Did the flight attendant say they were on an Ajira domestic flight? I was looking/listening for references to Oceanic airways but I didn't spot any.

I kept hoping it was Cora impersonating Regina. I know the dialog doesn't support that, but Regina was trying so hard, just to let Cora unravel all her progress. I kinda wanted her to succeed.

Snow's need to make sure Regina knows she has no rights was quite inappropriate immediately after admitting they were wrong about her. Is she trying to drive her crazy mad again?

No Oceanic reference but yeah, they were on an Ajira flight.

Other Lost references: An episode of Expose begins during the Ruby/Belle scene. Expose announcer is voiced by Lost co-creator Damon Lindelof, the Jules Verne novel "The Mysterious Island" is an allusion to the Island from Lost.

Especially since Regina is presumably still Henry's legal guardian, unless the Maine family courts automatically reassign custody when the adopted mother is revealed to be an Evil Queen.

Meanwhile, did either Belle or Greg Mendel notice the fifty-foot-tall giant stomping through the town?

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

So, we can assume that down the line any that want to go home eventually do? How many do you think will be taking textbooks of science and technology back? How long before the newly industrialized Enchanted Forest realm becomes the super power of fairy tale world?

Next week's preview boasts about possibly "the biggest bombshell yet," but doesn't everyone expect Neal Cassidy to be Bae with the way this show does things? It would be a bigger surprise if he turned out not to be Bae.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

^^ That's what I've been expecting since the season premiere. Sometimes I think it's too obvious.

So is Hurley going to be a regular now, as the biggest dwarf ever? I sure hope so. I wonder how many other refugees from Lost we can squeeze in. I want Yunjin Kim back.

Nervous Rumpy was amusing, and it shows that he's still the frightened man he was before the curse. I wonder if he'll learn something about himself.

I like the idea of the new beanstalk. If the show evolves into something that involves multiple other dimensions, I'll be happy with that.

Re: Once Upon A Time - Season 2 Thread

They're writing Belle kinda stupidly, imo. Here she is with amnesia, and she's asking Ruby--and everyone else who calls her Belle--"Why are you calling me that?" Well, Gold freaking her out aside, if you don't know your own name people who aren't acting creepy are calling you Belle and telling you that it's your name, it's highly likely they're calling you Belle because it IS your name. I don't mind the plot, I just wish she was written a bit better.

You'd think that when Ruby comes around, acting nice and seemingly familiar, that she might just ask, "Is Belle really my name? What else can you tell me? Why can't I remember?" I know, plot device. But silly. Belle can have amnesia, be calm, notice there's weird stuff going on around her, and still be able to resonate with the stranger/texter.
