People are still pissed off about this and it's all over social media. The backlash is real. We'll see how Disney handles this. Recasting is unthinkable.

It’s too late to recast. They just gotta get everything else right.

"people" aren't pissed off. Whiny little babies are. People that are racist are.

Disney does not. I repeat. Does not. give a fuck about those people.

This is the type of issue that Steve Bannon would correctly overrule the other advisors and say to Trump "Ignore the noise of a loud but tiny group of people, people don't really give a fuck about that".

I don’t think it’s racist to want Ariel to look like the cartoon. It’s not a huge deal, but not inherently racist. I’d have preferred her to look like the cartoon myself, but I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt. I would have been more excited if she looked like the character for sure.

Anecdotally, I’ve seen far more outrage to the “outrage”. Not sure anyone on my social media has posted anything negative regarding the casting but I’ve seen a hundred fake posters of Black Panther 2 starring Ryan Gosling - “dis gon be they revenge.”

Nobody really cares about the casting of Ariel. When media points to twitter bots feigning outrage or the outraged being outraged at the outrage it's always maybe 5 likes, 5 shares or maybe a few hundred or even a few thousand. It's nothing. No one is reading it, no one is seeing it other than media fake reporting it to CREATE a fake controversy.

This will be 4 mostly non white Disney remakes in a row (Aladdin, Lion King, Mulan and Little Mermaid). So I don’t like how people are acting like non white people are “finally getting their chance” considering the previous three remakes.

It’s also basically gonna make sure all the other merpeople in the movie are not white as well, considering a lot of them seem to be related.

Chippy is right. It's the same whiny little babies that were pissed that Major was played by Scarlett Johansson. Racist scum.

It did have a tangible effect on social media. Bot-generated tweets and retweets flooded the feed and pushed the subject and related links to trending. I noticed the same pattern in #BoycottStarbucks and #BoycottHomeDepot trending. Many tweets had the same exact wording and links to obscure news sources. It seems like some entities are trying to muddy the waters with petty outrages to obfuscate real issues.

Lion King does not have a human character, only lions in Africa.

Consider Disney's pre-Aladdin live-action fantasy outings: Alice in Wonderland, Oz, Maleficent, Cinderella, Pete's Dragon, Beauty and the Beast and Dumbo. Disney has certainly become more aware of casting people of color in the leads since this year's Aladdin.

Every dramatic role is voiced by an African American so yeah it counts as a mainly non white cast.

Correct! Although I don't think there was ever a problem with the original cast. But I'm glad they changed it up.

This. Whether the initial outrage is faux/generated by bots is irrelevant. If it gets picked up by a major news source, it becomes a story whether we like it or not. Some of it can be ignored (the starbucks thing was stupid, people are asked to leave places all the time), and some of it is just tired (home depot has always been known to be owned by a bigot, this isn't new).

I think the casting makes sense considering Africans are mainly black. I do think it is questionable that the comedic roles are all white people though.

Harry Styles is Eric. Not who I'd choose but it's a smart choice, this is gonna be massive.

I don't see anything confirming that? Although he'd be a good choice.

Harry Styles had SO much potential and he's really wasted a lot of it by taking so long to do anything after his 2017 album and Dunkirk.

Isn't Eric supposed to older? I am outraged it isn't Jeff Goldblum!!! I need a meme where they recast Dragged Across Concrete with the kids from Descendants to make myself feel better.

I mean, Little Mermaid in the cartoon is like... 15? so it's already f'ing creepy as hell if you actually think about it. So, he kind of needs to be age appropriate.

I'm still waiting on who they cast as Vanessa.

Styles was "reported" as taking on the role of Prince Eric several hours ago by multiple media outlets. And they all said it was "confirmed" that he had gotten the role shortly thereafter. Then... it was "reported" that he hadn't accepted the role yet soon after. And now it's being "officially" reported that he turned down the role....

All of this happened in a 3/4 hour period or something. :lol:
