Disney has chosen 19-year-old R&B singer and actress Halle Bailey as the live-action Ariel, and as expected, Twitter is all fired up and voting for who should be Prince Eric. Qualifications seem to be: a gorgeous face + wavy hair + impressive vocals + the uncanny ability to look hot in a simple white shirt!
Here are the top contenders:
As we all know, 20-year old Shawn Mendes is a Canadian writer, singer, and model and he is currently working on his fourth studio album. In 2018, Time named Shawn as one of the 100 most influential people in the world!
BTS' Park Jimin
Who says Eric can't be Asian? Jimin, 23, debuted in 2013 as a member of K-pop mega-group BTS! In 2018, Jimin was the ninth most tweeted-about celebrity in the US, even though he doesn't have a personal Twitter account!
Prince Eric hair: on point! The former One Direction member celebrated his 25th birthday on February 1, 2019. During this year's Met Gala, Harry stunned everyone when he showed up in a sheer nipple-y blouse!
19-year-old Wong Kunhang, also known as Hendery, is of Chinese descent. He is a member of WayV, the fourth sub-unit of boy group NCT, which is based in China. Fun fact: He's a Libra!
