Who is Halle Bailey from The Little Mermaid?

The world is falling in love with Disney’s newest Princess Halle Bailey from The Little Mermaid. The animated film became a classic right behind The Lion King when it was released in the 1990’s. Now that instant classic is set to shine on the big screen as a live action remake takes shape. 

Disney has been on a roll with live action remakes including for The Lion King, The Jungle Book and the timeless Beauty and the Beast which saw Harry Potter star Emma Watson as Belle.

Now, with The Little Mermaid live action remake, we see newcomer Halle Bailey take the reins as the mermaid Ariel and Melissa McCarthy as the evil octopus Ursula. 

Berry is making history as the first black actress to portray a princess in a live action remake. This is history in the making as this will inspire a new generation of little children who will be looking up to become like Bailey. 

The official trailer debuted during the Oscars on March 12th and has gone viral.
