Christian Navarro is one of the stars of the series “13 Reasons Why”. Soon he could become known to an even larger cinema audience. How so? Because he has a real chance to get the role of Prince Eric in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid”. More details we tell you here.
Is the interpreter of Tony Padilla in 13 Reasons Why will be Prince Eric of The Little Mermaid? While Harry Styles refused Prince Eric’s role in the film, Christian Navarro won an audition for the role.
Last month, when it was confirmed that Harry Styles would not play the role, Navarro tried his luck tweeting: “So I heard that Harry Styles refused Prince Eric, well … I know to sing. Black Ariel / Prince Latino … no one has called but season 3 is coming out next week, and I think it’s a big audition. ”
His call like a bottle to the sea worked because Disney contacted the acting management team. “They wanted to see what I could do,” he wrote. The actor has thus earned a chance to become Prince Eric and enter the story as a Latino prince in a Disney.
He is undoubtedly the only one to be considered for the role, and the moment, it is only an audition, but who knows, he may get the part.
For the moment, no actor or actress outside Halle Bailey has been confirmed, but several names are circulating: Melissa McCarthy in the role of the witch Ursula, Jacob Tremblay in the part of Polochon and Awkwafina in the region of Eureka.
Alan Menken and Lin Manuel Miranda will team up for the film’s music. Rob Marshall is directing The Little Mermaid written by Jane Goldman ( X-Men: Days Of Future Past ).
The production of The Little Mermaid begins in 2020.
