And it's reported that Melissa McCarthy is in line to play her evil Aunt Ursula.

The rumours regarding Harry Styles taking over as Prince Eric however, are false.

A source tells E!, 'While [Harry] is a fan of the project he has respectfully declined the offer.'

Meanwhile, Chrissy Teigen says she's, 'thirsty to be in the little mermaid,' and her fans are all for it.

Get to know Ariel

Halle rubs shoulders with some of the biggest names in the music industry, including Queen Bey herself.

She and her sister Chloe are both amazing singers and have their own R&B group called Chloe x Halle.

Back in 2003 they uploaded a cover of Beyonce's Pretty Hurts to YouTube and it amassed over 16 million views.

It caught Beyonce's attention which resulted in a record deal for the sisters.

Music Success

The pair went on to release their first studio album in 2018 titled The Kids Are Alright.

It was nominated for 'Best Urban Contemporary Album' at the 2019 Grammy Awards.
