Hearts are about to be melted by the enchanting Halle Bailey’s portrayal of Ariel in the upcoming live-action remake, featuring an A-list cast including Melissa McCarthy as Ursula, Javier Bardem as King Triton, and Jonah Hauer-King playing Prince Eric. Everyone’s favorite land and sea creatures will also come alive with performances from Daveed Diggs, Jacob Tremblay, and Awkwafina. Truly a star studded line up!
Melissa McCarthy’s forthcoming portrayal of Ursula, the iconic villainous sea witch from Ariel’s story, is one of the most highly-anticipated performances in Disney’s upcoming film. She must tempt and challenge Ariel with an offer no mermaid can refuse – a chance to become human. But as we all know, this comes with a hefty price tag. Given her extraordinary comedic talent highlighted by films such as Bridesmaids, The Heat, and Identity Thief , it stands to reason that she will give us plenty of laughs when playing Ursula!
Prior to the release of The Little Mermaid, director Rob Marshall spoke highly of Bailey’s vocal talent in an interview with Variety. He was astounded when he heard her rendition of Ariel’s renowned song for the first time.
“When she finished, I was in tears because she’s so soulful. You could tell right away that she was able to harness Ariel’s passion, her fire, her soul, her joy and her heart.”
Step into an enchanting world on May 26th as Disney’s The Little Mermaid brings the magical underwater journey of Ariel to life!
