In 2019, rumours began circulating that the One Direction singer was being considered for the role of Prince Eric in Disney's live-action 'The Little Mermaid'. In freshly leaked images, the actor-turned-singer seemingly did a full 360 spin.

With the actor reporting a schedule conflict, Disney went a different way for the character (who is to be played by Jonah Hauer-King) in 'The Little Mermaid'. However, it seems Harry threw out the rule book and dressed up as a character from the classic Disney animation anyway, but not who you would expect. Yep, Harry Styles went full-on Ariel.

"Ariel" began trending on Twitter in the past few hours, which related back to these rather charming pictures of the star. Here are the pictures in all of their alternative, red wig glory.

Let's be honest, we'd probably watch whatever version of the Disney movie this turned out to be. It turns out the images are from when the star hosted 'Saturday Night Live' back in 2019.

Here are some of the funniest reactions the Harry Styles as Ariel pictures have been getting online.
