The Internet has found its latest obsession in some rare photos of resurgent Harry Styles as Ariel, Princess animated film “The Little Mermaid” Disney. The images were taken during the participation of the former One Direction in the 2019 Saturday Night Live (SNL) show when it was rumored that he would be in the live-action of this film; but these images never came to light, until now.
