We have our Little Mermaid! It's officially been confirmed that 19-year-old singer and actress Halle Bailey, of pop-R&B duo Chloe x Halle, will star as Ariel in the upcoming live-action film, according to The Hollywood Reporter. It will be a major breakthrough film role for Bailey, who stars alongside her sister Chloe on Freeform's Grown-ish — we can't wait to have her become a part of our Disney world!

ICYMI, the live-action musical version of the Hans Christian Andersen classic will feature the musical stylings of Lin Manuel-Miranda and will also star Melissa McCarthy, Jacob Tremblay, and Awkwafina.
