I mean...we're into it.
Although the original tweet was probs just a joke, it turns out Disney sat up and listened with Christian confirming they have since reached out.
Needless to say, Twitter is behind the idea of Christian playing Prince Eric after the bitter disappointment that was the short-lived Harry Styles casting (still not recovered).
Well, Disney, the internet has spoken, Give us a Latino Prince Eric (pls and thank u).
It' a very welcome update after Harry Styles got everyone's hopes up, only to have them CRUSHED mere hours after the news broke.
The former One Direction band member was a fan-favourite to play the role of Prince Eric since news of Disney's live-action remake was announced, with that jaw-line, hair, and voice. He was the ideal candidate.
Whoever is chosen for Prince Eric, whether it be Christian or not, will star with Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Awkwafina as Scuttle and Melissa McCarthy as the villainess Ursula.
