It appears Awkwafina might become a part of Disney’s world as the newest cast member of the live-action The Little Mermaid remake.
Over the weekend, the 30-year-old actress attended the D23 Expo in Anaheim, California, where she cryptically addressed rumors about her potential involvement in the upcoming movie.
In an interview with Entertainment Tonight, Awkwafina revealed that while she can’t give away any spoilers, things are looking up for The Little Mermaid remake. “Aww man, that all isn’t confirmed yet, but obviously if it happens, I would be more than honored,” she said.
The Crazy Rich Asians star went on to say that she fully supports the film and its star, Halle Bailey. “It’s a classic, yeah. I’m very, very happy,” she added. “That’s my princess right there, so I’m very happy with what they have [announced] so far.”
