What's going on, you guys! Here for a quick update on one of Disney's more anticipated remakes, The Little Mermaid.
Halle Bailey is set to play Ariel, which has some fans (and some who aren't fans) all riled up. Still, it's happening. We also now know that Harry Styles (former member of Big Time Rush, had a role in Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk) will play Prince Eric. Melissa McCarthy is the choice to play Ursela, Jacob Tremblay (The Predator, Good Kids) will play Founder (guppy fish friend,) and Awkwafina (The Farewell) will play the seagull, Scuttle.
To me, the main attraction here is Javier Bardem possibly playing Ariel's Dad. He previously starred in Disney's Pirates of The Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.
