Who is Prince Eric?
He is adventurous, kind and a little goofy. He has dark hair and blue eyes with an incredible singing voice and a smile that could win over any fair maiden.
Ever since the internet has heard the fantastic news that Halle Bailey will be playing the role of Ariel there has been speculation as to who exactly will be playing the role of the beloved Prince Eric.
Here are a few of my top picks!
1. Shawn Mendes
People who know me know that I might be a little bias when I say that Shawn Mendes would make the perfect Prince Eric. Hear me out because this isn't the super fan in me talking this is my honest opinion. I believe that he checks off everything on the "Prince Eric" checklist and imagine that SOUNDTRACK. His beautiful voice singing to Halle Bailey will literally make hearts EXPLODE in the movies! This is the one. Here is Prince Eric.
2. Harry Styles
There has already been speculation of this past boy band member to be playing the role of Prince Eric. His beautiful singing voice and unique sense of style will bring a new spin on the Prince Eric we know and love. His overall boy appeal will make audience members scream when his pearly whites are shining on the big screen.
3. Matt Bomer
You probably remember him from Magic Mike, but now you are about to remember him for being Prince Eric. His dark hair and blue eyes fit the traditional Prince Eric mold. We just now have to see if he can sing!
4. Ansel Elgort
He can sing, he can act, and he can be our Prince Eric! I believe Ansel would absolutely smash this role and don't you think him and Halle would just look so cute together?
K-Pop member of the boy band BTS would be an interesting pick on playing Prince Eric. I believe that he could really land the role and several thousands of other people are rooting for him to play Disney's beloved Prince Eric. He checks everything off the checklist and more! Let's see if it happens!
These are all great choices, but which ones or any of them will prevail?
