Halle Bailey was an unexpected choice to play live-action Ariel in The Little Mermaid, but most fans have embraced her as the new version of the Disney princess. Some eager fans have already imagined the singer and actor as the character in gorgeous pieces of fan art.
If there was any doubt that Disney chose the wrong star as the leading mermaid, then these pieces of art shut that down right away. Other than Bailey, two other stars have been officially cast in the upcoming remake of the 1989 classic. Disney is churning out updated versions of its classic films including Aladdin, The Lion King, and Mulan.
