The Little Mermaid plot is as follows, according to Disney, for people who are unfamiliar with the old tale:

The Little Mermaid 2023: Release Date

“The Little Mermaid is the well-known tale of Ariel, a lovely and vivacious young mermaid with a lust for exploration. Ariel, the most rebellious and youngest of King Triton’s daughters, longs to learn more about the world above the sea and develops feelings for the handsome Prince Eric while on land. Mermaids are not allowed to engage with humans, but Ariel must do what she feels is right. In exchange for the opportunity to experience life on dry ground, she strikes a pact with Ursula, the evil sea witch, which ultimately jeopardises both her life and her father’s throne.”

Cast of The Little Mermaid

There is no doubt that The Little Mermaid cast is talented. Together with Tony Award Winner Daveed Diggs (Hamilton, Snowpiercer) and Oscar winner Javier Bardem (No Country for Old Men, Being the Ricardos), Melissa McCarthy, the incomparable and hilarious actress, also stars in the movie (Bridesmaids, Nine Perfect Strangers).

Ariel, the beloved mermaid, is portrayed by none other than Halle Bailey. Bailey’s career in the music industry has brought her the most prominent achievements, but Halle’s breakthrough role as Sky Forster in the sitcom Grownish has been her most well-known acting job. Halle and her sister Chloe joined together in 2015 to form the duet Chloe x Halle, which has now received four Grammy nominations. They signed with Beyoncé’s Parkwood Entertainment firm.

Recently Halle opened up about appearing in The Little Mermaid, specifically on singing the movie’s iconic song “Part of Your World,” at Disney’s D23 Expo.

Ariel is special to all of us, and I’m sure that everyone in this room can relate to that. I never anticipated that when I was a young kid swimming in the pool and pretending to be a mermaid it would come to life [like this].  I had the most amazing experience of my life during the three days I spent filming “Part of Your World” because I was able to experience all of her emotions, including her enthusiasm and discomfort. Playing those emotions was quite exciting for me, and Rob directing me and being such a powerful presence in this movie was a true honor.”
