Chloe x Halle member Halle Bailey has been cast to play Ariel in Disney’s next live-action adaptation of “The Little Mermaid.” The director of the upcoming remake said in a statement: “After an extensive search, it was abundantly clear that Halle 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 Little Mermaid” will incorporate original songs from the 1989 animated hit as well as new tunes from original composer Alan Menken and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda, who is also producing the film
