“A massive challenge for us was finding a balance between being really faithful to the original film, which we all love, but also breathing some new life into it, letting it evolve, and bringing our own version to a new generation. And that’s a real fine line because you want to bring something new and exciting, but you also need to be really respectful of what came before. So that was one of our director Rob Marshall’s big jobs. He guided us on that really beautifully.”
Covering Man About Town Spring/Summer 2023, Jonah Hauer-King talks putting his own spin on the iconic character of Prince Eric in the upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid. As the 27-year-old Londoner prepares to star alongside Halle Bailey in one of the summer’s most-anticipated releases, he discusses his childhood love of Disney, honouring the legacy of the beloved fairytale in its 2020s re-incarnation, his surreal filming days immersed in its fairytale world, as well as his secret past life in an indie band.
