'The Little Mermaid' Remake Casts Ariel: The Internet Reacts

She can now be seen as a regular on Freeform's Grown-ish series, in which she plays Sky who, along with her twin sister Jazz (played by real-life sister Chloe), is on the track team at the college.

Marshall says that Bailey "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".

Disney hasn't stamped the live-action Little Mermaid remake with an official release date as of this writing, so sadly, we don't know when we'll get to see Bailey up on the big screen as Ariel.

Melissa McCarthy is set to play Ursula in the remake. Miranda is also producing the project along with Marshall, Marc Platt, and John DeLuca.

But with Serena playing, it's still a possibility that Meghan could attend to cheer her on at some point over the next fortnight. Kate Middleton was a breath of fresh air at Wimbledon when she floated in wearing a gorgeous, white dress and cool shades.

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.

David Magee wrote the script with Jane Goldman writing a previous draft.

Melissa McCarthy, Jacob Tremblay and Awkwafinain talks to star and lend their voices to the villainous Ursula, Ariel's best friend Flounder, and Scuttle.

Awkwafina of "The Farewell" attends The IMDb Studio at Acura Festival Village on location at the 2019 Sundance Film Festival - Day 1 on January 25, 2019 in Park City, Utah. Marshall has also made his last three films at Disney, including Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides, Into the Woods, and the Poppins sequel.

Taking to Twitter to celebrate the role of a lifetime, Halle posted a likeness of herself as the iconic mermaid, adding the caption: "Dream come true". Who do you hope is cast as Prince Eric?
