Halle Bailey will be seen as Ariel

Singer and actress Halle Bailey will be seen playing the onscreen character Ariel in Disney's live action film "Little Mermaid".

This classic film with a fresh take will be made by Rob Marshall and produced by Kingsway Productions and Conglomerate Media. This fantasy film is inspired by a story with the same name, written by Hans Christian Andersen. It  features Awkwafina,  Melissa McCarthy and Jacob Tremblay. Halle Bailey took to her Instagram and Twitter accounts and shared a picture of Ariel and captioned it, “dream come true...  #thelittlemermaid”.

Halle Bailey is one of the leading faces of the famous American contemporary R&B  band, Chloe x Halle. Their song 'The Two of Us' became an instant hit and had even garnered a spot on the world no.17 on Rolling Stone magazine's Best R&B Albums of 2017 list. Both sisters, Chloe and Halle Bailey also released their first album named 'The Kids Are Alright'.

The shooting for "Little Mermaid" will commence from early 2020.
