    hasn't the one direction fandom said that Harry looked like prince eric for years though??? I would totally go and see this new adapation of the little mermaid if Harry does play prince eric.... tbh though I would go and see it even if harry doesn't play prince eric... disney stan right here.., but it would just be the cherry on top of this disney movie if harry styles played prince eric in the new disney little mermaid adaptation!! sooooo excited!!!

    I mean, I like Harry a lot. He's a nice guy with great songs, but I don't think they should have gone for such a big name to play the role. Disney always goes for relatively new unknown people unless it's for playing roles like the Genie or Maleficent. Idk, I was hoping for a fresh new face. I feel like I'm just going to see Harry and not Eric whenever he'll be on screen.

    Disney wants a black Ariel, but black Ariel can't have a black prince? The social engineering continues.

    I prefer Austin Butler to play Prince Eric than Harry Style...

  • Dani

    he was great in Dunkirk and played a role that required more acting range than whatever they want to do with prince Eric, so I think he can pull this off

      French dude went to Africa and impregnated 1000 women there looks like black women thirsty for white men.

    Why not have a Black prince what's wrong with portraying black love. Disney keeps doing this. They did the same thing in the princess and the frog.

    • Aestheticalyy
      Aestheticalyy 2 months ago +1

      Hakcure okay I agree.
      But just try switching prospectives. We are now in a time that everyone is represented, and you can never please anyone. I mean wouldn’t it be offensive if they made the princess from “the princess and the frog” white? No one would give disney the day of light.

    • Hakcure
      Hakcure 2 months ago

      @Aestheticalyy completely missing the point. It's about the representation and Disney did this already they've never had a black male lead it would be nice to see. Love is love but black love is never seen in a positive light that's all

    I think that Prince Eric will sing in this live action of the “Little Mermaid” if Harry Styles would be chosen.

    I love the little mermaid because it's was my favorite Disney movie. I think Harry Styles should portray prince Eric in the little mermaid, and I hope that I portray one of Ariel's sisters in the little mermaid too.

      @TurquoisePurpleSky Sky It's not. The casting was a mess.
      Only Jacob Tremblay as Flounder was considered as a great casting. The rest were a flop.

      @TurquoisePurpleSky Sky lmao ya it's not real, it's Disney....dumbass. and fyi u clearly didn't see Aladdin bc they were the correct race in correlation to the cartoon

    • TurquoisePurpleSky Sky

      @Teenie Actually, None of them looked right. Jasmine was dark skinned in the cartoon. So was her Prince. The Mermaid is a Fish. Not EVEN REAL DUMBASS!

      Teenie 2 months ago +1

      @TurquoisePurpleSky Sky the dumbest cast Disney has put out. jasmine looked like jasmine, cinderella looked like Cinderella, belle looked like belle, , Mulan is already going to look like mulan. and a scrawny Eric, no thanks!

      aj pat how is it cultural appropriation? Ariel is a fish 💀 but I do think they could’ve just had an Ariel that looks like the original, either way I’m still watching cuz ion think it’s a big deal

      @Rukia BlackBlazer This has nothing to do with black women, here. In regards to the casting of Ariel, it's cultural appropriation, tokenism and dirty political pandering bulls**t.

      @aj pat Now you know what black women feel like for all of the history of TV.
