Is this your Prince?!
Me reading the rumors and recent headlines:
I present to you 10 reasons this individual is unqualified to play Prince Eric.
Uno: He retired.
Dos: She’s too young for you bro. Halle Bailey is 19, he is 25 . It’s just not realistic.
Tres: Prince Eric is handsome and/or decent looking and...he is not.
Cuatro: He can barely swim in the ocean, needs a life vest, still drowns.
(Yes, Prince Eric drowns in the film during a storm. He however saves Ariel in the finale against Ursula and shoots her underwater. Swimming is a requirement).
Cinco: He’s a known thief. No bueno for that wholesome and clean Disney image.
Seis: He just doesn’t have the range.
Siete: Harry has a receding hairline, Prince Eric does not.
Ocho: According to the film’s official novelization, Eric is 18. There’s no way Hagrid could pass off as a teenager or even someone in their early 20’s in the film.
Nueve: Lacks acting experience and peaked at iCarly.
Diez: Did I mention that he is a thief?
ONTD, who would you like to see play Prince Eric in the live adaptation?
