The Little Mermaid story has been around since its publication in 1837 by Hans Christian Anderson, and then Disney picked up and brought to life. It’s the tragic and happy story of a little mermaid who dreamed to be human, brought to the big screen for a new generation to enjoy in the late 80s, according to the Huff post.

Since then, this story has been well known both in connection to the book and the Disney film. In both stories, Ariel meets the handsome and kind Prince Eric who she saves after his ship was caught in a thunder storm. Following that, she goes to the sea witch Ursula, and requests that she provide her with legs to replace her mermaids tail. But there is a catch, she can only be granted that wish if she hands over to Ursula her soul.

There’s always a price for true happiness, but in the end, all is well because Ariel lives up to her Happily Ever After.

The idea for a live action version of the “The Little Mermaid” has been discussed for quite a while, and there was even a film which was released last year. But not by Disney.

Since Disney’s first live action film, ‘Maleficent,’ back in 2014 the company has practically started a tradition by releasing all-time favorite stories in live action mode across the country in theaters and worldwide. Now, it’s “The Little Mermaids” turn.

The fact that a few character roles were already assigned is a positive step forward, and it seems Harry Styles is in the running for the role of Prince Eric.

Apparently, Harry Styles in talks to play this iconic role, and as for his costar, Ariel, the role has been given to Halley Bailey of Chloe x Halle and there is also talk that Melissa McCarthy would be portraying Ursula, according to Cosmopolitan Magazine.

The magazine did also mention that “The Little Mermaid” Disney live action won’t go into production until the start of 2020.  Moreover, the news of the production and eventual release of “The Little Mermaid” seems to have already gained excited fans, as there are many tweets of people hyped up about Harry possibly playing Eric. It won’t be long before the movie theaters fill up to watch Disney’s live action “The Little Mermaid.”
