Two more Disney icons are coming to Storybrooke

It hit the net today that not one, but two Disney princesses will be joining the ranks of the Storybrooke citizens this fall.

According to Entertainment Weekly:

Hangover 2 and Sucker Punch actress Jamie Chung has been cast as the Chinese fighter Mulan in the show. The character is expected to have a recurring role in the ABC hit’s eagerly awaited second season.

The character originates from an ancient Chinese poem about Hua Mulan, a young woman who takes her elderly father’s place in the army. ABC’s parent company Disney adapted the story for a well-received 1998 animated musical film starring Ming-Na and Eddie Murphy.

And Tudors alum, Sara Bolger has also been cast as Sleeping Beauty.  Considering the presence Maleficent had last season, it’s no surprise that the character of Briar Rose would be coming to the show.

The big question is, how will all of this fit into the established mythos?  What do you guys think?  Are these good additions for next season or just a waste of time?  Sound off with your thoughts and opinions in the comments section below.

To find out more information about this casting news and any possible spoilers about Season 2, we’ll more than likely have to wait until the show has their scheduled panel at Comic-Con International, until then you can sneak a peak at their SDCC 2012 poster.
