Bad news, Harry Styles fans — looks like he won’t be stepping into the role of a Disney prince after all.
The idea of Harry Styles joining the cast of Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid may have sent fans into a frenzy, but it looks as though we won’t be seeing Styles step into the role of Prince Eric after all.
According to Variety, a source close to the project has confirmed that the “Sign of the Times” singer has officially passed up on the opportunity to play Prince Eric’s live-action counterpart on the silver screen.
News that Styles may be joining fellow singer/songwriter Halle Bailey in the Disney live-action adaptation first broke just last month.
Though it seemed as though the former One Directioner’s involvement with the project was basically a done deal at the time, now it’s being reported that “reports about his casting were premature.”
As for Disney, it sounds as though the studio was quick to move on after Styles walked away. In fact, they’re reportedly already in the process of searching for the perfect Prince Eric to join Bailey, who was announced as the film’s Ariel on July 3.
Prince Eric aside, the studio hasn’t wasted any time in casting notable actors in the roles of King Triton, Ursula, Scuttle and Flounder.
