A new addition to ABC’s Once Upon a Time was announced today during the show’s panel at SDCC. Merida from the Pixar film, Brave, will join the cast of the show’s 5th season.

Merida will be played by Amy Manson (Atlantis). Check out the clip below and let us know in the comments if you will be tuning in to OUAT this Fall.
