Disney Cast A Prince Eric

By Hope Bidegainberry on November 18, 2019

Newcomer, Jonah Hauer-King will officially play the iconic Prince Eric in the live-action The Little Mermaid.

Pop star, Harry Styles, was long rumored to be the person who would snag the role, but he ultimately passed. He wanted to focus on his music.

That being said, the film seems to be shaping up to be quite the event. With Bailey’s angelic voice and Hauer-King’s handsome looks, the live-action version seems to be on the right track in terms of giving die-hard fans of the original film what they want.

In addition, actor Melissa McCarthy has been approached to play Ursula the sea witch, while Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina have signed on to play Flounder and Scuttle.  Hamilton star Daveed Diggs may be playing Sebastian the crab and Javier Bardem could be playing Ariel’s overprotective father, King Triton.
