Well there is still Eric's butler, the old guy in the movie, he was white. And British if I remember right.

Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, would make me happier than to see Ariel's dreams go up in smoke because Eric is gay.

But it has to be a last minute sort of thing. Like:

Ariel: Eric. . . I love you!
Eric: Oh. That's um. . . hrm. . . that's nice and all, but
Ariel: What is it Eric?
Eric: I'm like, super gay.

The more I see of this, the more certain I am that it will be a trainwreck, Ariel's singing voice be damned. It's just one big diversity roll-call, and one casting choice away from becoming a dumpster fire.

The reason why Harry Styles turned the role of Prince Eric was because he wanted to focus on his music career.

Both Krypton's Cameron Cuffe and Jonah Haur-King (A Dog's Way Home) are testing for the role of Prince Eric in the remake. I hope they make a decision soon.

Jonah Hauer-King has officially landed the role of Prince Eric. He was great in Little Women and A Dog's Way Home, so I am pleased with this casting.

In case no one you are familiar with Jonah Hauer-King, here's everything you need to know about him.

https://ew.com/movies/2019/11/12/eve...ah-hauer-king/

In other news, Christian Navarro of 13 Reasons Why is very bitter that he didn't get the role of Eric in the movie. His reaction is very similar to Jade Thirwall's when Naomi Scott got the role of Jasmine in the live-action Aladdin instead of her. Navarro has since deleted these posts.

Just came back to say; after months of seeing every person of color they could think of for the role of Prince Eric, @DisneyStudios somehow still cast a white guy,” he tweeted. “I guess diversity is just a word. And THATS Hollywood.

Another Jordan Myles, apparently.

If a person of color gets cast to play a role that's traditionally white, that's "progressive". "Let the best actor get the part, regardless of skin color!" they chirp in unison, oblivious to why race-flipping is problematic and offensive for its own laundry list of reasons. But if a white actor gets cast to play a traditionally-white role, that's "lazy", "racist", and whatever else. Clearly, white people don't know how to play white people. It simply isn't possible that, in this case, "the best possible actor for the role" could happen to be a white person. Clearly, it's a conspiracy.

Typical Millennial crybaby, oblivious to their own hypocrisy. Seeing a lot of 'em in entertainment nowadays.

I don't see what the problem is Ariel and Eric being an interracial couple. The live-action Lady and the Tramp movie made Jim Dear and Darling one too. Aunt Sarah was also changed to an African-American character. They are also being diverse by having a Spaniard, Javier Bardem, play King Triton. Hauer-King must've had what they were looking for in the character. I definitely seem him as Eric after watching two of his performances.

I think Eric should be played by a muppet or a robot. They need to think outside the box on this one.

It seems that Ariel will also have more power in this adaptation according to Daveed Diggs, who is voicing Sebastian. Sounds like the transformationJasmine went through in the live-action Aladdin.

Quote:
Some of the updates they’ve done to the story are really important in terms of giving some more power back to Ariel. It’s fun to work on something that’s so intentional in the idea of ‘If we’re going to make this now, we’re not going to leave this alone as a time capsule.’ Let’s make it for now.

Melissa McCarthy also talked about rehearsing for the part of Ursula on Ellen from 2:37 to 3:18.

Filming hasn't started yet because of the current situation the world is in, but Alan Menken says that all of the songs have been recorded including four new ones. Prince Eric is indeed getting a newly written solo song for this movie.
