Disney has finally found its Prince Eric for the new Little Mermaid and no, it's not Harry Styles.

Styles was the fan favourite to play the iconic character but this week, in a new interview, he said "they shoot for so long and I wanna tour next year, maybe. I haven't announced that yet, but yeah, it just didn't quite line up."

But now, it's been announced that newcomer Jonah Hauer-King has been cast for the role. 

King is set to join Halle Bailey, Melissa McCarthy, and Jacob Tremblay for the new film which will begin filming in early 2020.
