Actress and Singer, Halle Bailey, is all set to go undersea as ‘Ariel’ in Disney’s upcoming adaptation of The Little Mermaid. This live-action remake will feature original songs from the 1989 animated film. But it would not be only limited to the oldies. Fresh tunes from the original composer Alan Menken and Hamilton creator Lin-Manuel Miranda would fill the movie with their melodies.
Halle Bailey would be cast along with Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafina in the film
Moreover, it will be directed by Rob Marshall.
Marshall explained what moved him to choose Bailey in the role of Ariel. He said that Halle Bailey “possesses that rare combination of spirit, heart, youth, innocence, and substance plus a glorious singing voice all intrinsic qualities necessary to play this iconic role.”
The clever casting was applauded unanimously. Everyone could place Halle Bailey in the role of Ariel. Moreover, the significance of a young black woman in the role of Ariel intrigued everyone.
