Halle Bailey reveals first look of herself as Ariel in Disney’s “The Little Mermaid” remake

Halle Bailey has revealed the first glimpse of herself as mermaid Ariel in the hotly-anticipated live-action remake of Disney’s The Little Mermaid, as shooting wrapped on the delayed film.

The 21-year-old singer and actress also paid tribute to her ‘lovely and talented’ co-stars and the film’s ‘beautiful’ crew as she reflected on the ‘toughest’ experience of a lengthy shoot during the pandemic, said a Metro report.

In a stunning photo posted on Instagram, Halle is sitting in the waves as the sun sets in Sardinia, where the film was shot, casting a beautiful orange backlit glow.

Although it’s a little tricky to make out many details of her in her full mermaid glory, the star wears her hair long and in a far more natural hue, with just a hint of russet, compared to her 1989 animated counterpart’s flaming red locks.
