Harry Styles Fans Devastated As He Turns Down Prince Eric Role In Little Mermaid Remake

However, a “source close to the star” has told PA that while Disney did approach the former One Direction singer about playing Prince Eric, he eventually made the decision to turn them down.And needless to say, fans who had been excited at the prospect of seeing Harry in the role of the dreamiest of all the Disney princes have been left more than a little disappointed at the news, particularly as reports circulated just hours earlier suggesting he had signed on for the role…I really wanted to see Harry playing prince Eric but he declined the roleI’m-pic.twitter.com/EJzU1EEiHF— my (@xhmzsx) August 14, 2019this is....... traumatizing 😭 https://t.co/NyAddpXoyz— ♡ snitchery ♡ (@babysnitchery) August 14, 2019right so going from “harry styles confirmed to be prince eric” to “anything is yet to be confirmed” all the way to “harry styles has denied the role of prince eric” all in a matter of hours has been the worst form of heartbreak i have ever experienced pic.twitter.com/3F0Xo2z7wM— em (@misses_em) August 14, 2019harry styles turned down the role of prince eric and i would just like to say i am simply devastated thank you that is all— isa ♡ (@isa_svt) August 13, 2019“Harry styles respectfully declined the role of prince Eric” bye that’s enough twittering today pic.twitter.com/kAcRq1SXCW— 𝐋𝐨𝐫𝐚 (@Lora_Stylesss) August 13, 2019i have no reason to live now https://t.co/OyIzQw9l4Wpic.twitter.com/wtDCpZHhci— princess♡˖✧*。 (@princesstiddies) August 13, 2019All men ever do is disappoint me https://t.co/3E0Q5kq0Fh— gabs ♡ (@gxbriellev) August 14, 2019harry styles turning down the role of prince eric? im devastated 😔💔— doro deck (@dorcthy) August 14, 2019i woke up seeing a source saying Harry got the role as prince Eric only to see that he turned it down AND I AM BEYOND DEVASTATED??????— peach (@heshedgie) August 13, 2019god really never lets me have anything good huh https://t.co/3XWqCxpquF— ash ⚡️ (@ashleythecarrot) August 14, 2019we went from “Harry Styles is confirmed to be playing Prince Eric in Disney’s The Little Mermaid!” to “Harry Styles is not confirmed to be playing prince eric...

The role of the villainous Ursula is also one that people have a lot of opinions about, with Oscar nominee Melissa McCarthy supposedly the frontrunner for the sea witch role.
Although it seems fans won’t be seeing Harry Styles on the big screen any time soon, it has been suggested he could be back with new music soon, after being snapped filming a new music video in Mexico.
His self-titled debut album topped the UK charts in 2017, as did lead single Sign Of The Times.MORE DISNEY... What Do The Original Lion King Animators Think Of The Remake?
