"Once Upon a Time" Season 5 won't premiere until Sunday, September 27, but the first minute of the new season was just presented by Disney/ABC at D23. And now you can watch it in the video below.

The clip starts with a replay of the very end of Season 4, when Emma Swan (Jennifer Morrison) sacrificed herself to save Regina (Lana Parrilla) and Storybrooke, and got "sucked up by a vortex of evil." That's how Regina describes it anyway, and you can tell right away that she is not overly grateful for Emma's sacrifice or sobbing over the loss of the savior. "How could she be so STUPID?" Regina asks. "There had to be another way."

Now Emma is "a problem," Regina adds, and not one that can be easily solved by Captain Hook (Colin O'Donoghue) just picking up the dagger and commanding the new Dark One to appear. Regina tells "Guyliner" (haha!) to put the dagger down before he hurts himself. You can use the dagger to summon the Dark One from any corner of the world but, since it isn't working, that shows Emma isn't in this world anymore.

We already know Season 5 is meant to show a role reversal of sorts, with Emma as the "evil" one and Regina showing her savior side. Swan Queen fans probably have a lot to look forward to, even if Regina will always be Regina.
