With The Little Mermaid now firmly in the minds of people online, a tweet went viral suggesting The Umbrella Academy star Elliot could play the role of the beloved prince.
"Since they already mad I got an idea," tweeted Eli Erlik, along with an image of the cartoon Prince Eric and a trio of photos of Elliot.
Gaining a ton of traction – over 230.5K likes in just a few days – the internet was loving the suggestion that Elliot take up a future iteration the role, and so are we. Who’s going to start a petition, then?
"YES YES YES," one person replied. "Prince Eric was a huge childhood crush for me and I am so down to see Elliott in that role," said another, adding a heart eyes emoji. A third commented: "Perfect. I have not thought much about the remakes this far, but Elliot Page would really make this an interesting watch."

In the /r/traaaaaaannnnnnnnnns subreddit, fans were also calling for Elliot to play the iconic role.
"I have no interest in seeing another live-action Disney remake. But if they did cast Elliot Page, I would at least watch it on Disney plus,” one person said. A second person added: “He looks just like him! Give our man the job!!!"
While Elliot won’t be playing Prince Eric this time around – Jonah Hauer-King will play the role, and the movie has already finished filming – there are plenty of other Disney princes Elliot could play in a live-action remake. Cinderella’s Prince Charming? Flynn Ryder in Tangled? So many options!
