Harry Styles is here to make a splash!

The British music superstar and long-time member of the boy band One Direction is making waves on social media after resurfaced photos show him dressed as Ariel from The Little Mermaid. The photos have since gone viral – unsurprisingly so.

The collection of images show the singer wearing the character’s iconic bright red wig and green tail — all from a previously unreleased photoshoot dating back to when Styles hosted Saturday Night Live in November 2019. Unfortunately for fans, at the time, those promotional pictures were skipped over in favour of a set of those that featured Styles posing on a huge disco ball, leaping through the air, and even playing the harp! Lucky for us now, these images have seen the light of day, and we love it!

 

It’s giving us serious FOMO though, as we might never get to see Styles in anything Little Mermaid related. In 2019, Styles turned down the role of the Prince Eric character from The Little Mermaid for the upcoming live-action version of the Disney animated classic starring Halley Bailey as Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as the evil queen Ursula. But who knows, he may take up the role in future productions?

The singer did explain back in 2019 to The Face that he gave up the role to focus completely on his music but was looking forward to seeing the film when it hit theatres.

 

“I’ll enjoy watching it, I’m sure,” he said.

Looking at the pictures, we can’t help but wonder – if only he had been offered the Ariel role instead!

 

Harry Styles has grown to become his own person over the years in comparison to his boy band days and has become one of the most beloved performers in recent years. Starting his musical career as one-fifth of the global superstar band, One Direction, he then went out to have a successful solo career and establish himself as one of the industry’s top artists.

 

However, he is a man of many talents, often making headlines for his fluid sense of style. The singer has also played his hand in the acting game too, appearing in the blockbuster hit Dunkirk in 2017 — the World War II film by director Christopher Nolan. Can’t wait to see the other out-of-the-box endeavours, Harry will embark on next!
