There are so many characters on Once Upon A Time that it’s easy to lose track of some of them. We’ve seen neither hide nor hair (yes, this is a reference to the time Philip was turned into a Yaoguai) of Aurora (Sara Bolger), Mulan (Jamie Chung), or Philip (Julian Morris) in ages. But, it turns out there’s hope for our favorite star-crossed love triangle!

OUAT co-creator Adam Horowitz tweeted yesterday that the writers have “not forgotten” about Aurora, Mulan, and Phillip.  That’s good news, especially for Philip, considering the last time we saw him in non-flashback form, his soul was being sucked from his body by a wraith. Girlfriends Aurora and Mulan have set out on a quest to save Phillip’s soul. Child’s play for two Disney princesses!

We’re glad that OUAT hasn’t forgotten about these three. Not only were Aurora and Mulan fun to hang out with while Emma and Mary Margaret were traipsing through the Enchanted Forest earlier this season, but they also give us a tie to the Enchanted Forest in the present, rather than just through the fairy tale flashbacks of the Storybrooke characters’ lives.

We wonder if the fairy talers will return to their Enchanted Forest home at some point. In the meantime, we’ll live vicariously through Mulan, Aurora, and (hopefully) Philip.

Are you excited to hear Aurora, Mulan, and Philip will hopefully be returning at some point? Let us know in the comments below!

Catch the next episode of Once Upon a Time on Sunday, April 21, 2013 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
