Arielle's cast is starting to come together. After the controversial cast of Arielle by Halle

Bailey, the evil witch Ursula by Melissa McCarthy and Arieles friend Fabian by Jacob

Tremblay are also in the cast. Now an actor for the male lead role of Prince Eric seems to have been found, and he is no less than the all time girl crush and ex One Direction singer

Harry Styles. Styles didn't have much to do with acting up to now, yet he did a great

supporting role as a British soldier in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk.

Now Styles will embody the beloved of Arielle, which at least visually is closer to the original

than some other Disney cast choices.

An exact start date for Arielle the Mermaid has not yet been set, but many journalists expect

a release in 2021.
