Disney’s live-action remake of The Little Mermaid has finally found its Prince Eric. Young Brit actor Jonah Hauer-King has been cast in the role and it undoubtedly will be the 24 year old’s biggest acting part to date.
Jonah has had roles in multiple movies including The Songs of Names & A Dog’s Way Home. He is also a series regular in the WW2 series World on Fire on the BBC here in the UK.
We already have casting for Ariel herself with Halle Baily cast in portraying Ariel. There was also multiple reports that Harry Styles was a major favourite to play Prince Eric but that has now be squashed with this confirmation.
With Disney+ now launched expect multiple more reports over the coming months on casting and series reissuing for all the new Movies and TV shows.
