Lindsay Lohan may have made numerous attempts to catch the attention of Disney producers who are making a live-action version of The Little Mermaid, but another actress-singer may have already caught their eye…

With Cinderella and The Beauty and the Beast having already been remade and The Lion King, Aladdin, and Mulan in hot pursuit, it is only a matter of time with Ariel and co. take us under the sea.

Rumors have claimed that The Greatest Showman star — and former Disney kid — Zendaya would be taking on the role of the red-haired mermaid who finds herself trading her voice for an opportunity to meet her true love.

“I loved The Little Mermaid,” the 22-year-old told PEOPLE. “It is honestly one of my favorite movies of all time. I was obsessed with it when I was a little kid.”

But as for whether or not she will be ganging up with Sebastian and Flounder and becoming part of their world?

“It’s just a rumor so we will see.”
