A new Once Upon a Time season 3 sneak peek released at San Diego Comic-Con reveals that we’ll see Ariel (the Little Mermaid) this year!

Yesterday, a brand new teaser for Once Upon a Time season 3 was revealed to lucky San Diego Comic-Con attendees who attended the show panel.

It features Grumpy (Lee Arenberg) eating his lunch by the Storybrooke docks, when something eerily begins to sneak up on him from the water…

Lucky for him the thief is only after Grumpy’s shiny fork! Curiously, Ariel seems to be able to switch between tail and feet at will, walking to the water and then swimming away when Grumpy pursues her.

Doubtless, the next scene will be Ariel debating what people use the fork for with her fellow sea creatures – although we have to assume that she already knows, considering that she’d surely have been cursed like the rest of them until it was broken.

Once Upon a Time season 3 Ariel

Unless, of course, Ariel somehow swam through the portal which Emma and the Charmings opened to Neverland when they sailed Captain Hook’s ship through?

Since we haven’t yet see her face, we can still speculate about casting. Who do you think should play Ariel in Once Upon a Time season 3?!

Also check out this general season 3 trailer recently released:

Once Upon a Time season 3 premieres Sunday, September 29 at 8/7c on ABC.

    That clip with Ariel and Grumpy was clearly filmed separately, probably just as a teaser since Ariel has been a long-anticipated character and fans have seemingly attached themselves to Grumpy, despite him being a very minor character. This doesn’t have the same look or feel as the actual show does, so I doubt this is a scene from this season at all. I wouldn’t be surprised if they haven’t official cast Ariel yet [but are in the process of doing so]. The fact that we never see the face shows that it’s just a stand-in to tease us.

    …that being said, they did a hell of a job! xD cuz we at least know that Ariel will at some point [maybe not til the latter 11 episodes] show up this season, and for that, I’m super excited!

      Yeah they did the same thing last season with Hook.

    The comic con trailer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I’m just experiencing so much feels right now. I’m so thankful we only have to wait until September.. not too long to go now :)

    The obvious choice would be Felicia Day. *fingers crossed*

    Ariel was always my princess. I think I judge everyone I’ve ever seen play her just because I’m jealous (it should be me! Waaaaaaahhhhhh). I think I complained about thelast Ariel I saw at disney world for a year because her boobs were too big. Petty, I know. So I promise I will try not to be too judg-y and give whoever our new Ariel is a chance ;)

    I love that it implies that Ariel will be in storybrooke for whatever reason. Maybe she, as has so far been implied, is from neverland but Eric isn’t, maybe he was a lost boy or a member of Captain hooks ship and was therefore in the enchanted forest when the curse hit and she’s come to find him. cool way of showing her in both worlds.
