Neither Sony nor Billy have commented on the speculation, but the deal is as good as done in fans' eyes. On social media, people were praising the potential casting decision and buzzed about seeing Billy master the role. "I just saw "Billy Porter" and "Cinderella" and I already knew what role he'd play," one user tweeted.
So far, there's no word on who will take on the character of Prince Charming, a role that will no doubt be highly-sought after both in the kingdom and the film industry.
One thing that's clear is that the movie's soundtrack will be full of (bibbidi bobbidi) bops. Camila is expected to create much of the film's music, with the help of James Corden of course.
