The teaser for Disney’s The Little Mermaid transports you underwater. At D23 Expo on Friday, Disney unveiled the first trailer for the eagerly awaited live-action version. Beautiful underwater pictures of Halle Bailey Ariel are seen in the teaser, which also contains the Part of Your World theme song playing in the background. In the teaser, Halle contributes to the song in part. Rob Marshall, the director of Mary Poppins Returns, is in charge of this movie. 2023 May will see the release of The Little Mermaid, according to Disney.
Beautiful underwater wildlife is first displayed in The Little Mermaid teaser before giving viewers their first glimpse of Halle as the mermaid princess Ariel. Before catching a glimpse of the sun, she can be seen gliding effortlessly over the water. The song Part of Your World, which was in the 1989 original, is then heard from her. Then fans get their first look of Halle’s face, complete with Ariel’s recognisable red hair.
Halle Bailey will play Ariel
Ariel will be played by Halle Bailey, and Prince Eric will be played by Jonah Hauer-King. The cast also features Noma Dumezweni in an unspecified role, Awkwafina as Scuttle, Jacob Tremblay as Flounder, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Melissa McCarthy as Ursula.
Halle said during a red carpet interview at the 2022 Oscars in March that she will perform Part of Your World in the new film. In a recent interview with Variety, Halle also talked about her experience filming the movie. She said, “I want the little girl in me and the little girls just like me who are watching to know that they’re special, and that they should be a princess in every single way. There’s no reason that they shouldn’t be. That reassurance was something that I needed”.
She also talked about growing up
Halle also talked about growing up and relating with Ariel in the Variety interview, adding, “Her sense of longing, her searching for herself, was something that I could resonate with. She knew where she wanted to go, and she wasn’t going to let anybody stop her.”
In July 2019, it was revealed that Halle Bailey, an actor and singer who is a member of the singing duo Chloe x Halle, would be portraying the title role in the 2016 animated film The Little Mermaid. After the Covid-19 pandemic caused production delays, shooting finally began in early 2021 and ended in July.
