The rumor mill has finally stopped spinning! After months of speculation and fan casting, we now know who will play Ariel in the much anticipated live-action adaptation of Disney's The Little Mermaid.
Actress-singer Halle Bailey, 1/2 of the singing duo Chloe X Halle, has officially landed the iconic role and will soon be part of our world!
Disney announced the casting of 19-year-old Halle who said it's a dream come true.
As expected, fans have mixed reactions so far about the casting. Some argue that while her singing voice is on point, she doesn't really look like the Ariel we all grew up with.
Other details about the film including its release date have yet to be announced.
