So what happened to Harry Styles? Well, the pop star had to pass on the project and he recently explained his move last month. While speaking with Capital Breakfast, Styles revealed that it just wasn’t meant to be.

“I had, you know, a meeting with Rob Marshall the director, who is the most wonderful man, he’s great,” Harry replied. “And it was just, honestly, it was just a few things.” He added: “It just, it wasn’t… erm… I think it’s gonna be amazing, obviously it’s an amazing film, and I can tell Roman’s watching how I’m kind of worming.”

Styles may be right about that, as the film is is also starring the talented singer, Hailey Bailey. It was also said that the new film will feature the original music from the animated version, including the songs by Alan Menken and Howard Ashman, as well as new songs by Menken (music) and Lin Manuel-Miranda of Hamilton fame (lyrics), Buzzfeed notes.
