We already know that the Little Mermaid herself will swim into Once Upon a Time's third season — flanked by a posse of mean nymphs — but we're learning now that Ursula may join her!

The villain from the 1992 Disney adaptation of Hans Christen Anderson's immortal fairytale The Little Mermaid, Ursula could very well make an appearance in Season 3 — or so creators Ed Kitsis and Adam Horowitz told attendees of Disney's D23 Expo, Hypable reports.

And she's not the only beloved Disney character to be (potentially) gracing the show!

Ed and Adam also said that Ariel's love, Eric, could show his face.

And the duo will draw on the beauties of other Disney tales, too, like Rapunzel from Tangled and Tiana from The Princess and the Frog — though they say that those two ladies may not appear this season.

Somewhere in Hollywood, a casting agent must be working overtime!
