Ariana Grande and Taylor Swift's fans have petitioned for the stars to be in the running to play the princess in the new Rapunzel movie.
Fans have petitioned for the pop stars to be considered for the movie, comparing them to Rapunzel’s character in the animated version, Tangled, who has physical similarities to the singers.
It's been 10 years since the adapted fairytale was released, where the animated princess had blonde locks with green eyes - which fans have drawn comparisons to the ‘Lover’ hitmaker.
However, we can see why Ari is some fans’ first thought when mentioning the long-haired character, with her signature ponytail.
People have been speculating about who will be playing Flynn Rider in the movie, with fans asking for Zayn Malik to be considered.
One fan tweeted: "I'm not saying they should cast Zayn as Flynn Rider but tbh they really should cast Zayn as Flynn Rider.”
"We want ariana casted as rapunzel or they can keep it [sic],” added another, while a third wrote, “Taylor for Rapunzel."
Tangled was a massive success for Disney and grossed $592million (£454million) worldwide, so it’s no surprise they’re following through with the new movie.
This isn’t the first time they’ll be doing a live-action remake after they announced last year that The Little Mermaid would be turned into a movie.
Harry Styles was in the running to be in the Disney film alongside Halle, however, he revealed to Capital Breakfast that he couldn’t follow through with it as he was busy focusing on his music and his Love On Tour shows.
