THIS. IS. NOT. A. DRILL!

Asher Angel could be in the running to play the coveted Prince Eric in Disney’s live-action version of “The Little Mermaid,” and nothing else matters. In a recent interview, the 16-year-old “Andi Mack” actor, who recently made major waves on the big screen as Billy Batson in “Shazam,” revealed that he auditioned for the upcoming remake of the under-the-sea classic just last week. OMG!

He also gushed about Halle Bailey (of our favorite singing sister duo Chloe x Halle), who will be playing Ariel, and dished on the meaningful connection he has to the movie:

“It means so much to me. I started off doing musical theater…One of my first ever shows, I was Flounder. It was really cute. There’s video everywhere, if you guys want to look it up,” Asher explained.

In case you missed it, watch Asher soar in the “One Thought Away” music video alongside his girlfriend Annie LeBlanc!
