Christian Navarro Auditions For a Role in The Little Mermaid

13 Reasons Why's Christian Navarro Auditioned For Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid Reboot

We were all devastated in August when we heard the news that our teenage crush Harry Styles had turned down the role of our childhood crush Prince Eric in Disney's live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. But it's time to cheer up team, because 13 Reasons Why actor Christian Navarro has just thrown us a bone, and we have a feeling you'll be happy about this new development.

On Aug. 13, following the Harry Styles news, Navarro tweeted "So I heard Harry Styles passed on Prince Eric, well...I can sing. Black Ariel/Latino ones called but Season 3 drops next week and I think it's one hell of an audition 🤷🏽‍♂️". Then he followed it up with, "@DisneyStudios give it a shot why don't ya? 🤷🏽‍♂️".

Twitter promptly exploded with messages of support, and it turns out, Disney was paying attention. Navarro took to Twitter again on Tuesday night to confirm that he has auditioned for the coveted role of Prince Eric. He wrote, "@disney saw this, saw your support, and gave my team a call. They wanted to see what I could do. Tapes sent. Fingers crossed. Let's make some history. #iloveyou3000 #PrinceEric #TheLittleMermaid."

Navarro is campaigning hard for this role — it's your move, Disney.
