The Little Mermaid has found its Ariel!
According to Walt Disney Studios’ official Twitter account, Halle Bailey is set to star in the live-action reimagining of the classic Disney film.
Halle Bailey is part of the music duo Chloe x Halle, so she’s no stranger to singing for the world to hear! She’s also appeared in a few shows and films, including Disney Channel’s Austin & Ally.
At the moment, no other casting decisions have been publicized for the film and no release date has been announced. But we do know that the retelling of The Little Mermaid will be helmed by Rob Marshall, while Alen Menken and Lin-Manual Miranda will contribute to the film’s music.
