The live-action “The Little Mermaid” stars singer and actress Halle Bailey (“grown-ish”) as Ariel, alongside an all-star cast that includes Daveed Diggs, Awkwafina, Javier Bardem, and Melissa McCarthy.
Directed by visionary filmmaker Rob Marshall, the live-action reimagining of Disney’s Oscar-winning animated classic tells the story of Ariel, a spirited young mermaid with a thirst for adventure. Defying her father’s wishes, Ariel falls for the dashing Prince Eric while exploring the world above the sea. Despite the dangers of interacting with humans, Ariel makes a deal with the evil sea witch, Ursula, to experience life on land, jeopardizing her life and her father’s crown.
