Pictures Of Harry Styles As Ariel In "The Little Mermaid" Have Gone Viral, And They're Quite A Sight To Behold

The RANGE.

If you're a fan of A) The Little Mermaid, B) Harry Styles, or C) All of the above, then you may have been flipper-ing out when Harry Styles was rumored to be cast as Prince Eric in the live-action Little Mermaid remake.

Unfortunately, our hopes of Harry as Eric have been shipwrecked — but, thanks to some resurfaced photos, we now have a look at Harry as a different character.

BEHOLD, PRINCESS ARIEL HERSELF!

Photos of Harry Styles dressed as Ariel from ‘The Little Mermaid’ have resurfaced.

It looks like the pics were leaked from a 2019 Saturday Night Live photo shoot that, alas, had not seen the light of day until now.

Incidentally, they surfaced shortly after Harry turned down the role of Prince Eric.

Naturally, the internet responded with a wave of memes:

confirmed: harry styles refused to play Eric because he wanted to be Ariel.
