Disney, as expected, has been very secretive during the production process. All we know so far is that Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda are leading the project.
However, a source close to Disney told The Hashtag Show that Zendaya was offered the role of Ariel! Fans are already erupting at the news, noting that this casting would be a win for representation and diversity. Only time will tell if the news is true, but the support in the casting decision is abounding.
One Twitter user even photoshopped an image of Zendaya as Ariel, and it looks amazing! Take a peek below.
