Failed at Elvis Presley, Harry Styles is targeted for The Little Mermaid
Sunday, July 21, 2019
After being replaced with Austin Butler for the role of Elvis Presley, Harry Style was reportedly being targeted by Disney. Disney is planning on giving him the role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid.
As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, this former One Direction member is currently in the middle of negotiation. If it runs smoothly, then he will act together with the young singer Halle Bailey who plays the character Ariel. Previously, The Little Mermaid had announced the main character, Halle Bailey as Ariel. Whereas the character of an evil wizard named Ursula will be played by Melissa McCarthy.
The choice of Bailey as Ariel had caused pro-contra. Since, from all this time Ariel’s character is known to be white-skinned and red-haired, this time played by a black-skinned and black-haired actress. There’s not much who reject Disney’s decision which is considered to violate Ariel’s image that has been known so far. But there are still many who support the diversity in Disney princess characters.
The Little Mermaid is a work by director Rob Marshall and screenwriter David Magee. The movie will later be made into a live-action movie and does not change a number of original songs as in the animated version.
