Since the announcement that Singer Halle Bailey would be playing the role of Ariel in the Disney’s live-action remake of ‘The Little Mermaid,’ internet seems to have sparked into utter chaos.
Director Rob Marshall remarked that after an “extensive search” for the right actress to play Ariel, Halle Bailey turned out to be a perfect choice.
“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.”
However, some people were convinced that Halle Bailey playing as Ariel is something fishy and even took a scientific approach to explain how the decision is an “inaccurate” casting.
But many people were excited and showered the actress with supportive comments. Some fans even took to the internet, flooding it with artwork that supports the new cast.
