Galavant: the fairy tale musical gets picked up for an entire season on ABC, because why not?
It seems ABC is really banking on their success with Once Upon A Time, because they’ve added yet another fairy tale-inspired show to the mix for their fall season. There’s just one catch, though: this fairy tale story is actually… a musical. Yes, you read that right. ABC has approved of an entire season of Galavant, the fairy tale musical.
A friend of mine posted this trailer on Facebook, and at first, I thought this was a cheesy April Fool’s Day joke (just a little late). However, the more I watched the trailer, the more I decided I would actually watch this show. Because by the end of the trailer, it looks… well… awesome. It also stars Psych‘s Timothy Omundson. And it reminds me of The Princess Bride, which is a very good thing indeed. Finally, the music is by the wonderful Alan Menken. So… what’s not to love?
Needless to say, I’m intrigued. Watch the trailer for yourself below and tell me what you think in the comments. Will you be watching Galavant?
