Since it was confirmed Tuesday that Harry Styles has "moved on" from the role of Prince Eric in Disney's upcoming live-action remake of The Little Mermaid, the search continues for Halle Bailey's perfect prince.

But which eligible hearthrob will catch Disney's eye? Could it be a fan favorite like BTS' Jimin or Shawn Mendes, or someone a little more seasoned such as Darren Criss (who played the part at the Hollywood Bowl in 2016)?

Or perhaps Disney should take a chance on someone totally out of the box -- but who? Let us know by voting in the poll below!
