Disney Seeking Harry Styles To Play Prince Eric in Live-Action The Little Mermaid. Though most fans know Harry Styles from his days as a member of One Direction, Styles has started transitioning to film, making his film debut in Christopher Nolan’s Dunkirk.

With the casting of Halle Bailey as Ariel and Disney seeking Harry Styles for the role of Prince Eric, all signs point to Disney making this live-action film with a musical focus. Though Prince Eric does not sing in the animated classic, the Broadway adaption of the film has Prince Eric in multiple songs and even performing two solos.

Halle Bailey still remains the only confirmed cast member for the film, with Melissa McCarthy still “in-talks” with Disney for the role of Ursula. Also in-talks with the House of Mouse are Jacob Tremblay as Flounder and Awkwafina as Scuttle.

In the same report from TheHollywoodReporter, Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda will work together to update the scores and lyrics to the popular soundtrack for the live-action remake. The Little Mermaid is scheduled to begin production in early 2020.
