Halle Bailey is the latest actress to be cast in Disney’s live-action Little Mermaid. She will play Ariel, the princess who falls in love with a human and trades her voice for legs so she can be with him forever. Halle has been singing since she was 3 years old and is part of the duo Haim which is made up of sisters Este Haim, Danielle Haim, and Alana Haim. The film also stars Awkwafina as Ursula.
Halle Bailey from The Little Mermaid opened up about her role in the live-action adaptation of the Disney classic. Bailey is 21 years old. She is in a TV show called Grown-ish, and she also stars in it with her sister Chloe (who is older than Bailey). Bailey started acting by singing songs on YouTube with her sister. The duo found fame online. They were noticed by Beyonce, and she signed them to her record label. They are now going to be in a new Disney movie.
The Little Mermaid is a Disney movie that was made in 1989. The story is about Ariel, who has magical powers. She goes on an adventure with friends and finds her prince.

It is directed by Rob Marshall with songs by Alan Menken and Lin-Manuel Miranda. Bailey plays the part of Prince Eric in this movie. He is alongside Jonah Hauer-King and Javier Bardem. Melissa McCarthy also stars as Ursula in this movie.
What can we expect from Halle Bailey in live-action Little Mermaid?
Details about The Little Mermaid are being kept secret. Bailey recently said some things about her role as Ariel. The actress-singer said filming for the new movie had been a crazy experience. Bailey said that she could find similarities between her character and herself because the person’s character went from living in an ocean to exploring new things. Read what Bailey said below:
I really connected with how Ariel feels. She just wants to discover something new. She wants to see a whole different world that has never been introduced to her before. There was a moment particularly when I was in London, and doing things on my own, and working every day, and working very hard, where I was like, ‘Okay, this must be what it feels like to have myself to rely on. I am kind of proud of myself. This has been a wild ride into adulthood.
This is a movie about a girl. She is not like the other girls. She has long red hair, and she wears a blue dress. Many people have seen it before, and they are happy with the movie. The person who played her in this movie was not white, but he was from Africa. He was playing her because she had a red-haired princess. Despite the early backlash, Bailey comes into the Disney franchise to offer diversity and give the classic fairytale a new spin. With her musical and acting talent, the Grown-ish star seems to be a perfect choice. Fans can weigh in when The Little Mermaid hits theaters, hopefully by next year.
