“After an extensive search, 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,” Marshall said in a statement.
“The Little Mermaid” will incorporate original songs from the 1989 animated hit as well as new tunes from original composer Alan Menken and “Hamilton” creator Lin-Manuel Miranda. Miranda is also producing the film along with Marshall, Marc Platt and John DeLuca.
Though, some are not in favor of this move from Disney, many are happy in casting Halle as Ariel, in a status posted on Twitter, Halle sings “Unforgettable” and her chant is really captivating, and seems fitting for the role. Take a listen below.
