Looks like Ariel won't be the only water nymph hitting Once Upon a Time in Season 3!

OUAT producers heralded the arrival of the Little Mermaid last month at Comic-Con — even releasing a trailer that shows the famed redhead disappearing under the waves (but not before flaunting her scaly tail).

But now Lana Parrilla (Regina Mills/Evil Queen) tells TV Guide that, as the Storybrooke peeps travel to Neverland, they will encounter not just Ariel but other mermaids — ones who may not be so nice.

"[They're] beautiful, full-bodied, and not the nicest mermaids," Lana divulges. "They're more like sirens."

(Full-bodied? Are they a wine?)

Not to rain on anyone's parade here, but haven't we seen the whole mean-mermaid thing before? Like the fourth Pirates of the Caribbean movie?

Eh, no matter. We're just excited to see these nautical beauties/beasts!
