oooooo the internet is going to have a field day with this one!
Yes, The Grown-ish star has been officially cast to lead Disney’s live-action The Little Mermaid as the princess Ariel.
I know there are trolls that are going to hate this and I’m sure as I type this Twitter is being showered with haterade. Me? oh this put a smile on my face.
I am so happy for Halle Bailey and even more excited for little boys and girls to see this depiction of Ariel.
I don’t have much else to say about this other than to express my excitement. Our lead will be joining Melissa Mcarthy’s Ursula, Awkwafina as Scuttle(!!!!!), and Jacob Tremblay as Flounder.
No word yet on who will be playing Prince Eric but I am HOPING they go with a nice handsome Mexican; let’s really punk the racists with this casting.
Lastly, yes, I have been listening to “Under the Sea” for this entire entry. Thank you.
