1st look at Once Upon a Time's Tinkerbell (and her new pal)

Later this month, Once Upon a Time will return with another mystery. The last time we saw the gang, they were heading to uncharted territory — Neverland. It's a place that brings several names to mind, i.e. Peter Pan, the Lost Boys and Tinkerbell. The latter has been cast, and we've got the first look at her.

TVGuide premiered a photo from season three, which includes Tinkerbell (Rose McIver) and Regina (Lana Parilla). Who knew those two were friends? They look cozy, and Regina doesn't appear to be her usual self. This could be a flashback. Is it just us, or does Regina remind you of Wendy Darling here?

According to executive producer Edward Kitsis, "Our Tink is very strong, a lot of fun and not afraid to go out and have a few shots. And although her heart is usually in the right place, she is mischievous." Her outfit and attitude might be slightly different, but a few things remain the same. She still has her magic wand, wings and a past with Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue).

McIver says, "Captain Hook has a history with Tink and wants to find her to help lead the team to Peter Pan's camp." Hmm, we can't wait to see how that plays out.

Once Upon a Time premieres Sept. 29 on ABC.
