ABC’s fantasy series, Once Upon a Time, will reprise the main character from Disney’s hit movie Brave for a star turn on the small screen, the network announced on Saturday.

The move comes as the series taps into a growing roster of wildly popular Disney characters, introducing several characters from Frozen in season 4.
