Jonah Hauer King has been casted as Prince Eric in the live action film reboot of Disney’s The Little Mermaid. Hauer-King joins Hallee Bailey who has been cast as Ariel.
Back in August, Christian Navarro confirmed he had auditioned for the coveted role of Prince Eric in The Little Mermaid.
Check out his reaction to the news:
“Disney somehow still cast a white guy. I guess diversity is just a word. And THATS Hollywood. One brown person is enough, two brown leads is unthinkable.” pic.twitter.com/I240onxD8g
