After crapping the bed with the live-broadcast version of a live-action Little Mermaid performance just over a week ago, Disney has a lot to prove with the actual live-action film adaptation they are planning for the children’s classic.

Today, Disney has announced that they’ve finally cast their Prince Eric in Jonah Hauer-King. The Little Women star snagged the role amid major rumors that it would be going to Harry Styles. He joins a cast that already includes Halle Bailey as Ariel, Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Javier Bardem as King Triton, Daveed Diggs as Sebastian The Crab, and Awkwafina as Scuttle.
