Disney Has Cast Halle Bailey As Ariel For The Live-Action ‘Little Mermaid’

Disney is on TOP of it with making live-action films.

Cinderella, Beauty and the Beast, and Aladdin are among some of the hits that they have released.

The Litte Mermaid is next.

'The Little Mermaid' is currently doing their casting.


There are some rumors, and there are people who have been cast, but people mostly care about Ariel.

Melissa McCarthy may play Ursula!


That would kind of be the best fit imaginable?

I would like to see it!

She is the princess that everyone loves.


She has beautiful red hair, an angelic voice, and she's a freaking mermaid!

So who will play her?

Halle Bailey is going to be our Ariel!

The rap star definitely has the voice and style to pull it off!

She's also age appropriate!

Zendaya is leading the celebration!

She posted on her Instagram and Twitter in celebration of her friend getting the part!

And the fan art has already arrived.

Halle posted some art on Insta to celebrate the news!

How cute!

Obviously, some people are pretty upset.

You know how racists can be, right?

But luckily they don't make up the majority.

Most people are really happy about it.

And thank the heavens for that too!

We should wait and see how she does before anyone criticizes her!

What do you think?


We're sure that people will have some thoughts about this casting.
