Kitsis Welcomes Naveen Andrews Back to the Island

Hi there, Losties!

San Diego Comic Con 2013 was all a buzz with the awesome news that another castaway from our beloved LOST Island will visit the magical realms of ONCE Upon A Time - more specifically, Once Upon A Time in Wonderland. The secret was uncovered with a glorious reveal! Naveen Andrews, who played the role of scary, yet loving, communications officer and torturer (as well as tortured), Sayid Hassan Jarrah, is cast as Jafar.
That's right, Losties, Eddy Kitsis lovingly and literally welcomes Naveen back to the Island. It's a beautiful thing. I can't even tell you how excited I am about this casting news!  I can only imagine where this trip down the rabbit hole will lead us. But no matter where it leads... I am totally along for the ride. This new journey looks to be a fantastic spellbinding and intoxicating adventure.
There are so many wonderful news tid-bits that were shared for both ONCE Upon A Time and Once Upon A Time in Wonderland at this year's Comic Con. The brilliant Kitsis-Horowitz boys and their awesome creative teams are weaving their tales and spinning their straw into gold, with aspirations of delivering more magic to those of us who love finding hope, dreams, and ourselves, in the wonderment of a fairy tale.
Here's great footage from the awesome surprise reveal. Enjoy!
