Halle Bailey Will Play Lead In Live Action 'Little Mermaid' Remake

Chloe x Halle's Halle Bailey may be grown, but she's about to make a star turn in a live-action remake of a childhood favorite for many '80s babies. The singer landed a major role when it was announced that she'd been cast as Ariel in the upcoming The Little Mermaid remake. The news was met with mostly praise and congratulations from fans and celebrity friends alike. Of course, there was also some expected racist backlash as well, with some complaining that casting a black actress as the red-headed mythical creature was a slap in the face. That being said, we're more than excited for Halle and this major move! #OurLittleMermaid
